The old fashioned Labour Party faces long hot summer of slow poisoning…

This morning’s Slugger Report went on a bit long, since they’ve removed the wee timer that tells you when you’ve spoke quite long enough. Still lots of good questions and interaction from the audience.

Much of it is about Labour and the sorrows it doesn’t need to seek. Something weird is happening to Labour, and across the ocean something similarly weird is happening to the Republican party.

Of which more later…
