Oh goody, please tell me they are going to base it on Michael Foot's last one.. that was a classic.

....."and every 5th house to be painted by badgers every 6 months."

Politics this week has been a gift that just keeps giving. The next Labour Party conferance is going to be like the 1980s all over again. I can't wait to see the brothers at each others throats. The blairites hate the brownites, the left wing hates the right wing and everybody hates Peter Mandelson. Classic left wing fratricidal muppetry. I hope to die of extreme old age without seeing this shower form another government.

Actually Nulabour have already implemented some of that manifesto over the last 12 years or so.

Check out the manifesto online then compare it to Blair and Brown Government policies and legislation.

You'll be surprised!

Examples from 1983:

Provide a major increase in public investment, including transport, housing and energy conservation.

Provide more resources for the health service with an increase of at least 3 per cent a year in real terms.

Begin to develop a strategy to eliminate low pay.

Introduce positive action programmes to promote women's rights and opportunities, and appoint a cabinet minister to promote equality between the sexes

Introduce a positive action programme for the ethnic minorities. We will also introduce citizenship and immigration laws which do not discriminate against either women or black and Asian Britons.

Take action to protect the status of refugees in Britain

Set up a Securities Commission to regulate the institutions and markets of the City, including Lloyds, within a clear statutory framework.

Repeal the Tories' shorthold scheme and close other loopholes in security of tenure; and strengthen tenants' rights on deposits and harassment.

Strengthen councils' powers to enforce repairs and improvements and the standards of management, particularly in multi-occupied properties; and launch a programme of action against property held empty without justification.

We are concerned that homosexuals are unfairly treated. We will take steps to ensure that they are not unfairly discriminated against - especially in employment and in the definition of privacy contained in the 1967 Act - along the lines set out in Labour's Programme, 1982.

Introduce a Freedom of Information Bill, providing for a genuine system of open government and placing the onus on the authorities to justify withholding information.

Bring in data protection legislation to prevent the abuse of confidential information held on personal files; and, subject to certain exceptions, allow individuals access to their personal records.

That means lots of public spending on Badger tunnels so they dont get squashed crossing the road

They might get caught out on Zebra crossings, or at No.11 downing street

Labour MPs threaten own manifesto

Left wing Labour MPs are threatening to stand under their own manifesto at the next election if Prime Minister Gordon Brown fails to adopt their policies.

I think they would find they had problems if they did.

There are terms for this... it's called "starting your own political party" or "standing as an independant".

Both of these require substanstial finacial backing.

The sort of people that would back this already have the tories to back... the last thing they would do is vote in a group of Nu labour turncoats.

This is like the formation of the SDP in reverse.

Shouldn't the comparison be with Militant in the 80s?

In that case 'entryism' was thought to be a way of gaining credibility for their policies.

In this case 'exitism' might salvage some credibility for 'What's Left'.

I dunno. Militant was more about assimilation into the existing party, SDP was a definite split.

Will we see the return of Doctor Owen, the legendary "time is now lord" with his two young companions, Dave and Shirl.

But a Labour Party spokesman said: "Policy in the Labour Party is made via Partnership in Power, an inclusive and consultative process unique in British politics.

"Through discussion with the public, ordinary Labour members from each region and nation of Britain, elected members, and representatives from Labour Party's affiliated organisations come together to agree a policy platform which best matches the aspirations and concerns of the British people.

"This process involves as many people as possible and not just a tiny section of the party or indeed the country."

:lol::lol::lol:

Their delusions continue.
