Liz’s Mujahideen Hit Back Cooper/Burnham Droning

TALIBAN

Are comparisons to the Taliban in British leadership elections the new Godwin’s Law? Forget the Taliban Tories, this morning’s Telegraph:

“We are now seeing the end of Taliban New Labour. All of those Blairites who hoped they might get their candidate elected have failed. The whole strategy for Liz was a Westminster strategy – she played up to the media, to the right-wing commentators, to the Blairite Taliban MPs, made a few headlines by saying she was relaxed about free schools and committing to defence spending, and just took a chance that the momentum would carry her forward. But the trouble with that is that the fizzle and sparkle has gone already. Now the contest has moved on to the membership, who will not be interested in that kind of rhetoric or those policies, you will see her star wane very quickly.”

Miaow! And here come the mujahideen:

Surely Labour should know better than most what happens when you try to fight the Taliban. The Taliban win.

Boris in The Telegraph on May…

“… it was certainly a serious mistake in 2015 for the Home Office to order a move away from stop and search.”
