Jamie Reed on Labour and The Simpsons

Labour MP Jamie Reed compares his party’s troubles to an episode of the Simpsons:

“As he bounces from the jagged rocks, Homer becomes increasingly injured with each fall… hitting every tree and rock protruding from the cliff face as he descends… A helicopter winches Homer out, slamming his head against the side of the gorge several times in the process…

It’s this scene that most accurately describes life in the Labour Party right now… It goes something like this: sovereignty of the Falkalnd Islands [bump], raising money for the Stop the War Coalition [crunch], campaigning against party policy alongside CND [smash]… Gerry Downing [smash], Mark Serwotka’s deselection joy [crunch], Ken Livingstone [smash, crunch, smash]. You get the picture.”
