Missing in inaction August 12, 2022

Where is the British Labour leadership? This from the Guardian paints a telling picture of a party leadership that has vanished out of public sight.

In the middle of August, politicians can often afford to take long breaks away from Westminster to recharge – and sometimes get a valuable dose of perspective. But the extent to which politicians – including those in the Labour party – have gone missing this summer is particularly striking.

 

As the energy price cap soars and millions of households face having to pay thousands more in bills, the most prominent voices calling for solutions have been Gordon Brown, Martin Lewis and Ed Davey – three men who won’t hold power any time soon. Keir Starmer is on holiday and Labour’s summer campaign on the cost of living crisis appears not to have yet begun.

What’s particularly noticeable is that some of those who have stepped up actually sound a fraction, and sometimes a fraction more than a fraction, more radical than those who aren’t there.
