Kennedy

Post by RLK86 » Sat Jan 07, 2006 4:42 pm

Well, that kinda sucks. At least we can look forward to getting a shallow liar as a replacement, much akin to Blair or whoever may be leading the Tories this particular day of the week. It does seem to be the style at the minute, which I'd more readily believe is the reason for Kennedy's ousting more than a drink problem which the whole country's only suspected for... well, forever. I guess that admission was just a catalyst, though, whatever the real reasons.

On the plus side, we're probably going to get one more party that's identical to labour as opposed to just very similar. That'll be us up to three, then.

Kennedy was one of the few people in politics you could actually feel like you trust half the time. Apparently it was a mistake to believe that such a trait could apply to the whole party.

Looks like another greens vote next election.

Actually there's a tussle between the oldies (menzies campbell) and the right wing and left wings of the party, so you may see some interesting happenings during the leadership election.

I liked Kennedy, but I could only ever see him arguing against things. Rarely did he ever convince me of what he actually wanted to do. Plus the other thing was at the last election, there were no major inroads on the Cons.

Am I missing something, or is this thread about 42 years too late? :confused:

There's only one man who can replace Charlie K...

...and his name is Karl Kennedy.

Fictional, I know - but wouldn't he make a great choice?

A little bit of humour on the subject: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/4594508.stm

Especially the last paragraph...

Wrong Kennedy, you ego-centric Yanks! Though, of course, you knew that, you just wanted to goad us poor British liberals into some tangental discourse! I know your game, you! :D

I'm considering joining the Liberal Democrats and announcing my candidacy; I'm not sure I can trust any of the fuckers to finish this quickly and get on with the task of getting into government.
