A few days ago I blogged that it was Strike 2 on Goff. Right now it's Strike 3 and Goff will be gone in days if not hours. Whoever coined the term 'Goffgate' had it about right. His handling of this sad saga gives new meaning to the word 'clusterfuck'.
But what is really fascinating is the report that the coup is being orchestrated by the New York branch of the Party (read Helen and Heather) through those two intellectual giants and bright stars of socialism Mesdames (or Messrs) Street and Dyson with the express purpose of installing Parker as leader. FFS, those two represent all that is wrong with the Labour Party and this must surely leave Little, Cunliffe, Cosgrove and the Jones boy wondering just what is happening beyond their control.
But the really sad thing likely to result and the legacy of Goff and Hughes is that they have opened the door to the trougher supremo, one Winston First, to return to Parliament as core Labour sez that's it and collectively holds their noses and votes for someone who rightly understands what opposition is all about.
Goff, Hughes, King ... hang your heads in shame.
