Glasgow East - It Just Gets Worse For Labour
The real point about the Glasgow East by-election disaster for Labour is that things just keep getting worse for Labour. It's a bear market, and I don't think we are anywhere near the bottom yet. I've blogged on this point before, but eveything that has hapened since just seems to confirm it. Blairism was like Gaullism. Without the General, there wasn't any such thing as Gaullism anymore. It was entirely built around a single personality. The same with Blair. Now that he is gone there is nothing left to lead. So the idea that there is some natural 'bedrock' the Labour Party can fall back on is nonsenical. It's zero.
