Matthew Parris has written an article for The Times saying that we need to give Labour more time in power. I'm not really sure if I agree with him but I certainly get the main thrust of his point.
Essentially he's worried that if we win the next general election it may be premature and Labour will be able to bounce back sooner rather than later. That is to say Labour has not failed enough to ensure that they will be out of office for a very long time.
Like I say, I can see the argument and do understand it, but accepting it means I also have to accept the possibility of nearly another decade of Labour rule. I'm not sure I want that even if it did give us the ability to say "18 years of Labour rule".
