Fear and dread

LabourList article by Mark Ferguson:  http://labourlist.org/2014/06/whatever-happened-to-labours-moral-crusade/

"The days in which the mood can be changed and momentum restored are dwindling. And what’s required is passion and an ability to explain coherently why Labour matters – and why we are the answer to what makes people angry about politics, society and the economy".

What is the one thing that is making people angry about politics in general and the Labour party in particular?

Do you not know what this is?

What is the one subject brought up on the doorstep time after time?

Or perhaps you don't want to answer that question because it is going to be too painful.

Like one, that on a lonesome road
Doth walk in fear and dread,
And having once turned round walks on,
And turns no more his head;
Because he knows a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread.


 Sooner or later the monster Labour created is going to catch up with the party and devour it.

Unless you slay the minotaur-child you created.
