Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The trouble is, Dick, that all the opposition parties are far too intent on watching their arses and fretting about "how they'll be seen" than worrying about the best interests of the country. Jostling for political advantage, as they see it, is a sickness of our system, unfortunately. The LibDems are the worst of the lot. Swinson has made such vicious attacks on Corbyn in the last couple of weeks that she's burned all her bridges as far as retaining any chance of getting together to defeat Johnson is concerned. It's idiocy. At least the SNP have made overtures of a sort. It used to be the left factions that could never get their acts together. Oddly, the divisions in Labour have been kept pretty well under wraps for a little while. I wish that could spread to opposition parties in general.
