THE GANG OF THREE HOPELESS LABOUR BASTARDS-FOOT ON THE RIGHT
UPDATE: MICHAEL'S FUNERAL WILL BE TELIVISED BY THE BBC IN A PROGRAMME ENTITLED "ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE"
Isn't it brilliant when you kick the bucket, particularly in politics. The tributes are flowing in for MICHAEL FOOT, who as everyone now knows died today at 96.
I was around when FOOT was at the top of the Labour Party and he was weak willed and dittery, a radical ex-communist who put the Labour party back by 20 years. The STUPID TWAT that is Jim Murphy, who when interviewed on the BBC, Politics Scotland programme, which turned into a Labour rant, when he wasn't trying to take digs at the SNP, described FOOT as a person who 'brought the Labour Party together'. Well, FOOT was the direct cause of the 'GANG OF FOUR' splitting from the Labour Party and starting the SDP.
FOOT tried to appease an increasingly radical TRADE UNION MOVEMENT and in doing so only gave Margaret THATCHER the excuse to decimate the COAL, STEEL AND NEWSPAPER INDUSTRY in the UK. (Not that it wasn't in need of decimation BTW).
At the time he was seen as HOPELESS BASTARD. So please, let's not have any ELEVATION OF FOOT as some great Leader. He will always be remembered as the OLD DUFFER in the DONKEY JACKET who had to be shown what to do at the Cenotaph by Margaret Thatcher.
