Ryan manages to surpass – or underpass? – even Umunna and Allen
Politics-watchers could easily be forgiven for thinking that the vacuousness of the TIG-turned-Change-UK party was so complete that it couldn’t get any worse. In fact, it would be entirely reasonable to assume that the only thing that could beat the CUK crew’s emptiness of substance is their incompetence. Oh and possibly their racism.
On the vacuousness front, CUK has tried to make a virtue of having no policies – claiming it doesn’t want to rush into policies – even after months of planning. To be fair, CUK’s policy of avoiding elections at all cost was arrived at pretty speedily – even, as it turns out, European elections in spite of their supposed commitment to staying in the EU.
But the sheer inanity of anything that comes out of the mouth of Chuka Umunna and Heidi Allen has looked untouchable – until now.
Former Labour MP and no-confidence vote recipient Joan Ryan gave a speech today that Labour activists literally pinching themselves and asking whether she really ‘went there’ – but she did and the evidence exists to prove it:
That’s right. CUK claims it wants to ‘fix’ politics and change the country – in spite of its commitment to keeping the same old Tory incompetents in power. Until now, it’s answer to questions about what its actual policies are has been, “We’ll have some eventually”.
But now it’s “Look in your hands. The answer is there.”
It looks more each day as though CUK is some kind of ‘Brass Eye’ spoof – a political farce to make The Thick of It look drab and unimaginative by comparison.
