To me, knowing the UK today and that of the 1890's, i see the same issues. Not much change, a lot more voters, but voters who really have not paid interest in their long term interest. Hey ho, its English(sorry welsh/scots) to muddle on, make most the of it while the rain does not fall.
Thus, a break with blairite politics is at least a step in the right direction for the labour. Blair epitomises Tory establishment and what Labour did wrong.
I can only hope (haha), that the labour decide another 5 years working together is what they should do. They deserved scotland shooting them, they will deserve the electoral boundary changes the tories make, and for not helping the lib dems in the last parliament, they now have a greater share of the electoral vote and they do not have power. If they had supported the Lib dems(and destroyed them by not doing so), they would be laughing now. But the establishment group in the party won.
Corbyn in theory will bring in the labour voters who voted green. Even perhaps gain a scottish seat. I will like to see how scotland pans out. The Irish had block power in the 1870's/1880's but the tories never let them go.
enough, of me. I agree with Helens comments :)
