Andy Burnham, loyalty and Labour

Anything is preferable to the gruesome Miliband Brothers, and since Diane Abbott has no chance, Labour supporters are left with Andy Burnham. I suppose he is the least worst option. He apparently disliked everything about the Blair/Brown years, but did sod all about it. Excuse? He was loyal.

Yes, loyal to his own career, unlike Robin Cook, Claire Short and others who did act on principle. Make no mistake, Burnham is cut from the same cloth as the Milibands - the brand is just less visible... But he won't get elected - Labour supporters - especially Scottish Labour supporters - have lost all capacity to tell shit from Shinola these days, especially at Westminster elections.

Illegal wars, lying to Parliament, attacks on legal freedoms, money grubbing, rampant municipal corruption, failure to address, in 13 wasted years, everything the People's Party ever stood for, MPs and Labour Lords on criminal charges - nothing removes the scales from their eyes.

Tick the Labour box. Why? Because that's what we've always done…
