Talent deficit

If ever there was proof that there is a major talent deficit in the Labour party, it's the sight of backbenchers turning to Gravy-train Jane Kennedy as a possible saviour to topple Gordon Brown.

Unfortunatly for Jane, as the Daily Post points out: "Ms Kennedy admitted she was wrestling with fears that the role would drag her away from her constituency – a key Liberal Democrat election target – in the run-up to next year's election."

"My concern would be that I have a very tough contest in my constituency and I need to devote the maximum amount of time to that contest," said Jane.

A tough fight indeed, and she will need all the help she can get from the national Labour Party to help her hold on. Gord help her them!

She's gonna lose Wavertree anyway so why doesn't she spend her last few months on the gravy train derailing Gordon the Grey Engine.

I have only just come across this site and it is certainly down to Earth. I've been going back on previous postings and I'm amazed at how bad Labour is. They just can't come up with sensible responses.I am certainly going to keep up with this blog on a regular basis.

Welcome aboard Mrs Smith

Mrs Gillian Smith said...

Thank you. It looks like the Liberal Democrats are just the ticket for me.

I would echo scouseboy's welcome.

Have you thought about getting involved with the party at all?

Even half an hour a week would be a poke in the eye for Labour.
