The return of the SaLaDs
I was taken aback today when the BBC’s PM programme, which as I’ve mentioned before is tolerated whilst I’m having my tea (or me supper if that’s where you come from) actually interviewed a Labour MP about a news story. Usually Tory MPs are the usual fare, e.g. people like Jeremy ‘I’d love to be a minister again’ Hunt, invited on to tell us what a good job Johnson is doing. But sadly, the only excuse for inviting on a Labour MP this time was to answer questions about Starmer's defenestration of Rebecca Long-Bailey as Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education. The invited MP we discovered was of course entirely critical of Long-Bailey. There you go, all remnants of that popinjay Corbyn’s tenure must be expunged as we retrace the steps of a rabbit with myxomatosis sitting firmly in the centre ground waiting for ‘our turn.’ According to Skwawkbox there is now a growing movement of left wing Labour MPs plotting to challenge Starmer’s leadership next year. I’m not holding my breath. I did enjoy a nice bit of Quorn sausage with salad though. One’s repast doesn’t all have to be bad news, and I could of course switch the radio off.
