Politics in the UK has become a soap opera
Ukip is the Jeremy Kyle show, the Lib Dems are — at best — Emmerdale, and Labour is now Christmas EastEnders.
Journalists across the land are leafing through thesauruses trying to find synonyms for “cataclysm”.
And while all the parties that claimed to be socially democratic race towards the cliff edge, the officially titled Social Democratic Party is re-emerging.
Surely, this is Labour’s epitaph?
