Labour Home

Doctor Crippen highlights the launch of Labour Home, a new site where socialists can get in touch with their roots, man.
Labour Home looks promising. They have already dined with the devil.

No they haven't...
They let Guido in. They even let him write an article. And they have survived.

Oh, right, misunderstanding...
Dr Crippen has trawled the blogosphere without success, looking for a spin-free website that represents what Labour used to represent. Whatever that was. I have forgotten.

Well, now; your humble Devil is no doubt biased in this, but what he associates with old-style Labour is such things as The Winter of Discontent, the 1976 IMF crisis and the 1967 devaluation, i.e. he associates old Labour with bankrupting the country (something that they still appear to share with their New Labour counterparts).

Still, as long as they are lovely and compassionate, then that's all that matters...

Good quote from Mark Steyn:

If you were a 5-year-old boy standing in the London streets in 1897 for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee parade and marveling as the hussars and lancers of the mightiest empire the world had ever known passed before your eyes, it would have seemed inconceivable that you'd be celebrating your 80th birthday in a decrepit ramshackle broken-down strike-bound basket case of a state. Permanence is the illusion of every age.

Hi DK

Yes, I realised just after I had pressed ENTER (it is so final, isn't it! - could you send me a bit of software that would put a compulsory one hour pause on posts before they were really posted plus a message saying "Do you mean that?) that DEVIL is virtually copyright in the blogosphere. I shall sent you 10p for abuse of title.

A challenge.

Lets see a DK rant on Labour Home. I am already being attacked by Dave Spart and his missus. And I am but a pathetic quivering moderate compared to the DK.

Send them 600 words to put them on the right path
