So its the day after the shit hit the fan for Blair and his missfits.
Yesterday was the local elections in 176 of 388 regions and Labour lost 255 of the 1,768 seats it was defending while a resurgent opposition Conservative party under new leader David Cameron gained 250.
Talk is now afoot within the labour camp to oust Blair out of office during the summer. This has hit Blair hard and has caused a panic reshuffle of his cabinet as follows:
Charles Clark – Home Secretary…. SACKED for being so incompetant, is now replaced by John Reid
Jack Straw no longer Foriegn Secretary (thank god, he was useless and scared the life out of me when he was negotiating on our contries behalf) and is replaced by Margeret Beckett which is even more of a disaster, she was on Question Time last night and I have to say she is a dreadfull woman, she is going to do more harm than good in this position. Foriegn trade links will suffer because of this…this is the end of labour.
Jack Straw will become the leader of the House of Commons, which somewhat puts him out of the way.
John Prescott was spared the chop after his affairs and other mistake, he has however lost one of his departments, this is obviously the slap on the wrist from Blair.
Gordon Brown remains Chancellor and has said on national radio: “We have got to show in the next few days, not just the next few weeks, that we have sorted these problems out,” Brown told BBC radio on Friday morning. “I will be talking to Tony Blair about these issues over the weekend.” This sounds like someone who knows the end is near.
This is just patching up a wound and delaying the inevitable, Blair has to go. I dont think he should just step aside and let someone else like Brown become Prime Minister, Labour need to decide on a new leader then take it to the country and let us decide who should lead out country.
