Vizual Aides

The Labour Party Conference has finished in Liverpool, some would say the Labour Party has finished in Liverpool. The internal disputes and differences of philosophy are being described as "trench warfare".

To compare the petty rivalries, spites and student type politicking of the last few days to this is an insult to the men who fought in the First World War, notably those of the Kings Liverpool Regiment.

Given the antics and behaviour of many of the senior figures in the Labour movement today, if there is anything to compare it might be the characters in the Viz comic, see online, viz dot co dot uk.

  1. Good point about trench warfare. Some phrases are toxic and some not. It is instructive to compare them.
