I'm sorry they lost but not sorry Ed Balls lost his seat tbh
I feel that for this reason, Labour have dodged a bullet. If they got in and failed on the economy (which I believe the Tories will), we'd see them spend a hell of a lot longer in opposition wilderness. This five years might be tough, but I'm hoping that in the long run it will do the Labour Party a favour. I'd rather see Labour charging into office in five years time following a Tory failure, than seeing them spending five years failing to sort out this pig in a poke and being ousted from office and pretty much never trusted again by the floating voter.
It's a bad day, a painful one, but it might (just might) signal the beginning of a solid term in opposition and then a victorious return to office. Providing of course they can select a strong leader and parliamentarian. Tony B-Liar had his faults, but he would have eaten Cameron for breakfast in this election.
So that's now TWO crucial appointments being made this year!
Couldn't agree more. Any hints or rumours reference the really important one?
I've heard of some worrying whispers of Mrs Balls being touted, I bloody hope not! Personally I'd like to see Andy Burnham or David Milliband, preferably the former, but both would be far better at taking on Cameron than Ed. Although he improved in the last month or so, he just didn't have it where and when it mattered.
It's not just about having policies, it's also about how you sell them, I just didn't think he commanded his audience well enough.
'Cause after all, this city never sleeps at night. It's time to begin, isn't it? I get a little bit bigger. But then I'll admit I'm just the same as I was, now don't you understand that I'm never changing who I am. 'It`s Time - Imagine Dragons'
