Telling, very telling

From a piece on a council by-election by a Labour London Assembly Member at Labour Home:

"Whatever else, l can safely say that Tony is spinning in his grave as a result of this outcome. As always we will need to consider carefully the implications of the loss of Church Street and work with the whole community to ensure that when we go back to the ballot for the ward in 2010, it will have a much higher turnout and return it to its rightful owners".


There are plenty of seats where a pig with a red or blue (if not yellow) rosette could count on pretty secure tenure, but I do not think our safest seat, Richmond, feels owned by William Hague, still less that it is rightfully his by the will of history, reason or God.

Hubris, one might note, often ends up clobbered by Nemesis.

I don't think Labour stomping their feet about how they 'own' certain constituencies will resonate at the next general election.
