Intruding on private grief is a disgraceful thing, I know ...
What times for Labour, eh? SNP, UKIP and even the Wicked Tories taking all their best lines as well as their votes; nobody paying them the slightest attention; Harriet Harman splitting them with her New Realist strictures; Jeremy Corbyn steaming up on the left; little Owen Jones floating the idea of supporting 'Out' at the euro-referendum.
And the achingly glamorous, oh-so-tempting possibility of becoming the British (English?) wing of a pan-european anti-austerity movement ! With real street-fighting !
Can they resist it ? One thing's for sure: all the leadership candidates except that nice Liz Kendall will be trying to keep the LabSyriPodemos option open. What else have they got for 2020?
PS: errr ... so, would that be 'In' or 'Out ' - ? Decisions, decisions
