They joined Labour because they figured at some point the pendulum would swing back their way and it would be easier in those circumstances to get into Parliament.

    That is why someone resembling a Tory would join Labour rather than a more successful party.

    Incidentally, Tony Blair first tried to get elected as a councillor in 1982.

    Brexit party MEP complains: UK won't have any say in the EU parliament after Brexit.

    That comment was taken slightly out of context - he was actually referring to the transition period.

    Merely saying that on many issues his views are closer to the Tory party than to Labour's.

    You see, a slight preference for individualism over collectivism makes you a Sith Lord and traitor.

    In 2002, twelve years after Margaret Thatcher left office, she was asked at a dinner what was her greatest achievement. Thatcher replied:

    To improve the lot of the people while there is even a suspicion of ideological impurity is to irrevocably damn them.

    Better to let the Right have power than risk the souls of the proletariat with such reckless action.

    The labour party were last in office during the 2000s,they were last in power in the 40s
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    If everything you achieved can be undone in the succeeding decade simply by cutting budgets you can't make claims to greatness.

    Okay not everything was undone. Things like updating working time regulations have stuck around. The actually effective social things like sure start, anti poverty policies and legal aid were good while they lasted but didn't have any impact on the structural failures they addressed.

    Under fptp left wing parties don't get a shot at power often, which means any time in office they have needs to be significant with lasting impacts.
