    Here I go again, predicting the collapse of The Labour Party. But seriously folks, its a real possibility & we need to think about how to react if it happens.
    If senior Labour figures are held personally liable then we may have to fight a slew of By-elections all at once.
    If some Labour MPs want to join us, are there any we dont want ?
    Is it acceptable for hundreds of MPs to sit for 3 or 4 years representing a different Party to the one they were elected for ? If not, do we have to consider bringing forward the GE ?

    I think Labour ceasing to exist overnight is fanciful at best.

    mpg, that was what almost everybody thought about the Communist Empire of Central Europe. In any case its not overnight, the Labour debts have built up over a Decade but the MSM have shown almost no interest.
