He's never going to win an election on a right of centre ticket Carnelian, there isn't enough right or centre right votes to go around. Blair won on the centre ticket because he managed to keep both left and right pacified until Iraq.
You don't alienate your voters, you only have to look at what he has done in Liverpool to see it's either a deliberate act or he'a absolutely off his rocker.
I am quite willing to get behind a socialist leader or even a soft centre one who can unite the party...Stamer isn't that man, he's been a divisive force since day one and this is the guy who campaigned on a unity ticket, the ten pledges and a socialist manifesto...all have been chucked out the window.
Unless he either steps down or there is a leadership challenge, I don't think things are going to change much. People seem to forget, the Labour Party is a left wing Socialist Party, it's not meant to be Centre or right wing. Nowadays, anyone slightly left of Churchill is hard left, that's what people seem to think. I have never been so insulted over the last five years for simply being a socialist, not a commie, a trot, a thug, a dog, or hard left....Simply repeat the lies often enough and people believe them, sad really!
