THERE IS not just the smell of death around this Labour government – there’s something worse. It’s the stench of a party that has left its union roots and its (always shaky) principles so far behind that its only political response now, whatever the issue, is to say about Tory proposals that it thought of them first.
So it tried to outbid the Tories at their conference: whenever Cameron’s henchmen suggested something bad, Labour went one step worse.
If more proof be needed, look at its approach to the Royal Mail, dribbling on about “the business”. It doesn’t recognise a public interest in a public service. In fact, Labour is no longer capable of recognising a public interest at all – just the interests of the bankers its leaders hope to join. It deserves no support.
