There's No Pleasing Some People

Conservative MPs overthrew two Prime Ministers in three months in order to install a man who had not merely styled himself "World King" in childhood, but been handpicked in his teens as a future Prime Minister by the people who really did and do decide these things. Yet in as many days, there have been two rebellions so large as to have forced major changes in government policy. And it's still only Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Labour MPs threatened outright secession if the party members had given them any Leader other than Keir Starmer. Yet now the plan is as good as public to bring back David Miliband, which there could be only one possible reason to want to do.

We are heading for a hung Parliament. To strengthen families and communities by securing economic equality and international peace through the democratic political control of the means to those ends, including national and parliamentary sovereignty, we need to hold the balance of power. Owing nothing to either main party, we must be open to the better offer. There does, however, need to be a better offer. Not a lesser evil, which in any case the Labour Party is not.
