Hopes of return underlines quitters’ detachment from reality
Several news outlets are reporting that the ‘Change UK’ quitters are talking to other Labour MPs in the hope of finding a way out of their self-inflicted disaster – and back into the Labour Party.
“There’s no room for them. Labour is an anti-racist party.”
The fact that the ex-Labour quitters could entertain even for a second the idea that Labour – and Labour members – would accept them back simply underscores the utter ego, self-absorption and detachment from reality that has driven the whole sorry exercise.
They bought a one-way ticket – and did their best to trash the boarding area on their way out.
A Labour insider was blunt, telling the SKWAWKBOX:
They’ve got to be kidding. There’s no room for them. Not only would the members never tolerate it, they’ve burned their bridges with many MPs. Besides, Labour is an anti-racist party.
The ex-Labour quitters are in la-la land. Labour’s better and stronger without them – their incompetence, arrogance and absolute vacuity have been exposed and they’ve failed to learn a single lesson from their ‘calamity’.
The best thing they can do all round is finally call by-elections, so their members can get a real Labour MP – and the quitters’ deluded misadventure is brought to its conclusion as swiftly and mercifully as possible.
