Time for a change?

Posted on Tue 16 September 2008 in misc

Fun as it is to watch Labour struggle to contain a revolt by it's own members to oust Chairman Brown I can't help thinking a change of leader wouldn't do any good right now. While it's easier to argue against a general election for your first switch of leader while in power I don't think it would hold for a second. The Tories had the luxury of being in opposition for their last 4 changes, while in power they are pretty efficient at wielding the knife on their incumbent leaders.

I suspect with all economic turmoil going around at the moment no party really wants to be in power. However someone needs to be in charge of the country and indulging internal party politics seems like a bit of a luxury in these times.
