Suzanne Moore expelled from Labour Party

Shocking innit. All because she stood as an independent in the general election. How trifling. You'd think her working for the Mail on Sunday might have been a better reason. Was there a trial, some kind of tribunal? A chance to put her case? No. Just a letter in the post. Given she's probably closer politically to Labour than she is to the Tories, this seems a jobsworthy sort of decision. Labour needs all the friends (or sympathisers) it can get.

Oh, Suzanne tells me she left the party before she stood for election. So there.

The party left Suzanne. It turned into Tory-Lite. One should have what Sartre called clean hands, don't join a political party.

I soooo agree.

Tory-Lite is putting it mildly. I notice one of the first dramatic anouncements of the new government is a 'crackdown' on welfare. So it's business as usual then.

Madame Arcati said...

Ah yes, the crackdown on welfare - but not on tax avoiders.

Sartre never had clean hands. He probably had Fuck Me shoes, but never clean hands.
