I think I'll resist the temptation to do a political obituary on Tony Blair.
Ok, maybe I'll do a little one.
This man is responsible for a lot of lost Labour Party members, myself included. He changed it into something I barely recognisable, and for that reason I despise him.
His policies on Iraq were either insanely misguided or criminally evil. I'm sure time will tell whether he will be considered a joke prime minister like Eden, or will be the first PM to grace The Hague during a War Crimes tribunal.
Brown, as I've said before, may pleasantly surprise us - if he does, I still haven't signed up with another party, so maybe he can win me back.
Demand 1 : Pull out of Iraq by a given date - how does December 31st sound ?
Demand 2 : Some kind of balance to the right-wing thug element at Home Office would be lovely
Demand 3 : Taxes up, green taxes hugely up, spending on everything apart from Trident up as well
Demand 4 : Listen to the rank-and-file members, at least sometimes. I found there was no point being a member of a party where the chances of my view being heard was laughable.
Not much to ask in return for an annual fee and a donation to the Labour Party jumble sale. That's if I can find a local Labour Party big enough to hold a jumble sale.
