On this day

in 1992, Neil Kinnock resigned as Labour Party leaiel
der. He blamed the Conservative backed press for his party's defeat at the general election.

No, it was because he is a Wlesh windbag and a twat to go with it. Anyone who didn't know that before the infamous Sheffield rally soon realised when the saw the "we're all right" bit. It's about 1:40 in to this if you can stomach it:

Enoch Powell once said that 'all political lives end in failure'. Not even that is true any more - failed politicians end up living high on the EU hog. I saw a programme recently that when Kinnock was in charge, Labour were against the EU. So for a paltry few hundred thousand £ of taxpayers' money, he has changed his tune. Bastard.

Labour were Euro skeptics until maggie started swing her handbag and getting bad press. At that point they opprtunistically became EUrophiles.

No doubt as you are aware NuLab is as spilt over the EU as the Tories, its just that they are bigger hypocrites and are preapred to swallow their principles for power.
