piersh replies: Nobody can possibly say this for sure at this time, & besides it's irrelevant. A Labour government with a majority of 180 will behave very differently from one with a majority of 20 - just remember how weak John Major was at the end. This is about actual outcomes for actual people.written 14th Apr 2005

John Ball replies: "Labour have already won"?!
Labour have already lost.
In the sense that the party is now controlled by a cabal of social cripples who, in order to acquire and retain the support of floating Daily Mail readers and the proprietor of The Sun, magically turned themselves a while ago into Thatcherites.
Based on the pitiful assumption that acquiring State power could somehow effect qualitative social change, the Labour Party was in truth a utopian enterprise from the start.
Lost, in the sense that, faced with no effective Parliamentary opposition, the Labour leadership has, in measure after measure - enacted and proposed - become, with breath-taking gall, spectacularly more Thatcherite than Thatcher.
So cravenly desperate are they to hold onto "power."
Never in the field of political conflict has so much been owed to so many by such a bunch of losers.written 16th Apr 2005
