Chin up lefties, it’s not quite as bad as you all think

Everyone on the left, apart from a few unions, are in the doldrums.  They’ve just replaced a terrible leader with a worse one.  But the optimists are trying get everyone to look at the bright side.  Says one pinko commentator

I have been thinking about this overnight and to be honest I think there are actually a lot of positives from a Little leadership:

  • the guy took a Union who was having massive infighting problems and whipped them into shape. His climb to the top of that job is infamous for the way in which it was done, heads were trampled on and feelings were not spared. This is exactly what the Labour party needs.
  • Little isn’t beholden to factions: so Little was dead last in the caucus vote. What this also means is that a number of “dead wood” Labour MPs who perhaps should have left the building by now could find themselves shepherded closer to that exit door. Little owes very few people in the caucus his leadership so he can afford to be brutal.
  • His name isn’t David.
  • Bomber is already crying into his cargo shorts, so this can only be a good thing.
  • He came out today and said that Roger Sutton should not have been able to hold a press conference, nor should he have been paid out. Good start.
  • He worked on some policy to help the victims of sexual abuse not be revictimised through the Courts process – so there is a bit of the urban lib about him
  • He has a cat and worked that cat well into his campaign for leader
  • He actually has a fairly dry sense of humour. People uncharitably call him “dour” or “dull” or “uncharismatic” but if he is these things, he owns them and laughs at them.

So for ****’s sake left wing people. Get your **** together. Let’s at least give the guy a chance and get behind him. Besides, he’s hardly going to be worse than the last guy.

Little will never be Prime Minister.  And he should know it.  If he had ambitions in that area, he should have waited, like everyone else, for someone to step up and do the wet work.  But now that he has stepped up, if he doesn’t do the necessary career assassinations to clean the party out, then he’s as much of as a seat warmer as the last guy.

He was the best candidate for a Labour party that wants to rebuild itself.  But he’s got to kill the luvvies and turn it back into a working mens’ party.  There is no room for nuances like the right sexual orientation and gender balance.  Those are nice to haves after you sorted the rest out.  It’s what got them into this mess, and only a brutal culling of the self interested will see the Labour party bounce back.

Little will surprise me if he manages to even try.  He’ll never actually succeed.  But he’ll get kudos for trying to do what needs doing, no matter how unpopular.
