The current Labour Leader, has failed to convince, even his own supporters, that he is genuine Prime Minister material at the General Election next May!
In South Yorkshire the sense of abandonment by Labour, is palpable amongst the citizens of South Yorkshire, with the possible exception of Sheffield.
Ed Miliband and the Labour Party have serious problems locally, nationally and now in Scotland, where Labour appear to be facing an electoral disaster of epic proportions?
Locally the Rotherham Scandals have shook the Town to it’s core. Yet apart from four, perhaps token, suspensions, there has been little sign that they are yet up to the mark!
The Labour Party has been adjudged by the people of Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham to have failed them in so many ways. Internal greed, sleaze and corruption, dominate Labour politics in South Yorkshire, to the detriment of the people!
If Labour are wanting votes next May, they have a lot of work to do, weeding out the duds!
But what do you do when the Labour Group’s are comprised, almost exclusively, of the same duds, that got us in to the situation in the first place?
Simply, they must go! Even the Rotherham cabinet has duds left, Mahroof Hussain, John Doyle and Paul Lakin, to name but three!
My final point, unless Ed Miliband at least appears to be engaged and interested in dealing with the outrageous situation uncovered in Rotherham, he will lose many votes throughout Yorkshire and beyond.
If he fails to get a grip of his Party, he could even lose his own seat of Doncaster North, that might even top, the ‘Portillo’ moment?
