What Is Labour Doing Today?

As the PM discusses military action with the President and the National Security Council meets with the chief of defence staff, what do Labour think is an appropriate response to global events this morning? Well Angela Eagle is giving a speech on the “Crosbyisation” of the Tory party.

“The truth is that what we are seeing is the ‘Crosbyisation’ of the Conservative party. David Cameron’s politics has now come down to trying to exploit the problems the country faces rather than solving them.”

No matter that no one has heard of her and Labour couldn’t even find a big name to bash the Tories. No matter that the speech is out in Docklands so nobody will be bothered to go. But accusing Cameron of exploiting problems faced by Britain rather than solving them in a highly partisan speech, when he in the middle of dealing with an incredibly serious international conflict, is just weird. At least Gove’s unions speech yesterday was before parliament was recalled. Did no one in the Labour Party think that maybe, just maybe, it would be best to postpone?
