The state of party politics today
he following may bring some reality to todays MPs.
"At the state funeral of Winston Churchill, one of the pallbearers was Clement Attlee, his wartime deputy. The massive TV audience witnessed a deathly frail Attlee stumble as the lead-lined coffin was carried up the steps of St Paulís Cathedral. It was a mark of their deep mutual esteem that Churchill had asked for Attlee to be one of his bearers and Attlee had insisted on performing the honour despite his ill health." The left sing paeans to Attlee but know little history. They don't realise how he would have despised today's Labour tribalism.
