This time of year with Parliament in recess and many leading politicians on holiday is often referred to in politics as “the silly season”. Newspapers still have to fill up column inches every day so even the slightest hint of political gossip can often be seized upon and become a major news story. Fortunately for the newspapers this year it would appear that there is a genuine big news story for them to fill their pages with and I refer to the deep divisions in the Labour Party over the future of the Prime Minister. Some MP’s are openly calling for him to resign others are loyally pledging theri undying allegiance to him. I have no idea what the truth of the various rumours is but one thing is undeniably true at the moment and that is that the Labour Party are giving the impression of being completely divided.
