Advantages Try to do the best for the whole country/no class distinctions
Disadvantages The Unions no longer seem important to The Labour Party
Painfully in Labour.No I'm not talking about childbirth, but there is a paralell here.
Is Tony Blair finished?Will we see Gordon Brown as the Labour Party Leader and dare we say it, the new Prime Minister?
The latest news reports say that Tony is considering pulling our troops out of Iraq in about a years time.Do you believe him? Would you vote Labour again if he did pull our troops out in a years time.
Do you think he made a big mistake with the 90 day questioning of terrorist suspects or do you think that we should have the full 90 days for the safety of the British Public?I don't think Tony Blair is finished, but I do think that he has taken a severe political battering. He would of course be proved right if we had another terrorist bombing attack. This would make the other political parties opposed to the 90 days questioning of terrorist suspects, look really, really stupid and unaware of what was really going on in the worl of terrorists these days.
It would be nice if our troops could come home in about a years time as I think we've been in Iraq for long enough, let the USA linger on if it wants, it has more troops stationed there than we do anyway. Our brave boys deserve a hero' welcome whether you belive we went into Iraqu for the wrong reasons or not, they are still our brave troops and deserve our respect for doing their jobs.When Tony Blair does eventually depart from being leader of the Labour Party and leaves the position of Prime Minister, I think that Gordon Brown would make an excellent P.M. and I can't really see anyone else in the Labour Party at the moment who would live up to the challenge.
Labour has made mistakes, but tries hard to rectify these. They have stabilised the economy and created jobs and introduced the minimum wage. Yes they are having difficulties with the Tax Credits and yes they are having difficulties with the CSA, but they are trying to give the British Public a better standard of living. Years ago we didn't have these tax breaks or the minimum wage. I don't think the Tories would have introduced these.I think the next political buffing will come from our association with the USA. If George W Bush decided to pick on Iran or to get involved with the arguments that Israel should be wiped off the map, ( I don't think it should, but lets face it, Israel is in such a state at the moment that it's doing a pretty good job of destroying itself). Britain should not be seen to be involved with either of these issues, other than to state that there should be caution and that we would not support either action.
Yes at the moment it may seem to many that we are painfully in Labour, but as far as I can tell it's a lot less painfull than the alternatives.
