The Future Isn’t Tangerine

Commentators are saying Alan Johnston should feel robbed, but no. Not only was the counting method as fair as you can get under Labour’s bizarre system of ‘one person, potentially several votes, some worth a thousand times as much as others’, but there’s another failed candidate who has every right to feel peeved – not with the electoral system, but the voters. Harriet Harman is a vain, pontificating, hypocritical opportunist who won by saying anything to get elected, despite her actions in government… So tangerine-toned turncoat Peter Hain must be crying, ‘It should have been me!’ Tragically, he was annihilated by all the other candidates except the mini-me avatar of Tony Blair put up for the Labour Party to give the good kicking they never dared deliver to his face.

Curiously, my eyes remain dry.

Only a small point, Alex, but I reckon Alan Johnston is feeling rather worse than robbed at the moment.

Alan Johnson, however, is probably pretty disappointed.
I was entertained on picking up an LCLGR leaflet at London Pride to find that they had a breakdown of how their members had cast their ballots in the leadership election - apparently you don't have to be an MP or a member of a union to get extra votes in leadership elections, joining any old party group will do!

Oh, the extra members groups like EMLD and DELGA could have when a leadership contest is in the offing if the Lib Dems did that...
