In the UK the Conservatives have made an almost seamless transition in confirming Theresa May as their new leader and Prime Minister.
Compare that with these gems from Angela Eagle in her campaign to oust Jeremy Corbyn from the Labour Party leadership .... "I'm not a Blairite. I'm not at Brownite. I'm not a Corbynista (ouch). I'm my own woman" and further "These are dark times for the Labour Party" and more "Jeremy Corbyn is unable to provide the leadership this huge task needs" (holding the government to account and then replace it by winning a general election).
Those comments 'balanced' by this from Corbyn supporter Len McCluskey, General Secretary of the Unite Union, who said that "the attempted political lynching of Mr Corbyn had snowballed into a wrecking operation against the Labour Party which had destroyed it 'temporarily' as a parliamentary force".
No doubt Angry Tory would applaud that (notwithstanding the self-inflicted nature of it) but the reality is that a functioning democracy needs a functioning opposition to hold it to account. Labour isn't a functioning opposition. I can't be ... it's at war with itself and it's a war where there ain't going to be any taking of prisoners.
