Cannot agree - A May election catastrophe will have Lib Dem MPs doing everything they can to save their own seats, many are only supporting the coalition through gritted teeth now. Nothing focuses an MPs mind quite as much as the possibility that their days as an MP might be numbered. The coalition can only work with the support of Lib Dem MP's. The Tories and a few Lib Dem quislings might carry on as a minority government, on a supply and demand basis, but that's a different issue
Of course, Labour need to work on themselves but oppositions don't win elections Governments lose them and as the only opposition party Labour has a duty to make life as difficult as possible for the Government.
Harman's remarks were crass - but they got the press attention they were designed for.
fair enough you "cannot agree" so no point talking about it really..
"Get press attention" of her being a crass idiot who deserves to be at the bottom of a barrell and not on the front bench of a political party.. if that was her plan she did well at it.. congrats.
If people are happy for 5 years of bitching AGAIN then fine.. personally i was hoping for some grown up politics whereby this endless name calling and crassness ended.. and perhaps rational debate about policies and bills may happen. I'm obviously in the minority.
edit: it edited P*llock to hashes which i thought was harsh as its not a sweary word.. so changed it to idiot.
