Like I said he would Bridges has got the Labour portfolio. I expect he’ll do exactly what he’s told by Joyce. It’s how he’s got where he is thus-far.
Unfortunately the source on Shearer’s plan to put his leadership to the party didn’t pan out so well. He’s confirmed to Vernon Small that he does not intend to let members vote (I’m not surprised).
Mike Williams seems to agree (about 12min in) with Matthew Hooton that we at the Standard are all far left loons pretending to be Labour members. Now I know we’ve had a few wacky posters here over the years such as Robinsod and that short lived conspiracy theorist, Batman, but the last time I checked most of us were slightly left of center social democrats and Labour party members. Maybe Mike needs to check his own position on the political compass.
