Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why are you fine lefty Brits in agreement that this deserved to happen to Labour (as opposed to say, an individual, or a faction)?  Do you think life under a more conservative, free-market administration will be an improvement over Brown?  Or are you just overcome with a sense of inevitability, fall out from Blair?  

Usually, when one finds one's party in shambles and in need of serious reform, one runs reform candidates, or fresh new faces, tries harder.  You re-create a party from the inside, preferably.  The Democratic party had disappointed and embarrassed me from the moment I cast my first vote.  It never made me think the Republicans should be in power.  But maybe that is just me?
