    Labour r playing party games standing on the side lines sniping, taking shots at the coalition from the side lines on anything and everythign they say. That is not a very good opposition plan and if this is anything to go by they should never be voted back in. In the wasteland of debt were in at the moment playing party games is not the wisest option.

    So if you were in charge of Labour's policy, what would you be doing instead?

    Proposing viable alternatives to coalition policies whilst attacking them, making the party seem credible.

    I agree with you to a certain extent. They certainly need to put together a more cohesive response to the current situation than they have at the moment. Hopefully the current policy review will be able to do something about this.

    The thing with labour is that they all seem to be in it for themself where as if you look at the coalition they actually seem to be in it to better the country. If this wasl abour they would have stopped tuition fees as soon as a protest started but the coalition didn't.

    Welcome to politics. I don't like their approach, but it's certainly bloody successful. Their telling the country what they want to hear. And there's so many raving idiots now, they'll quickly forget that labour got us into this in the first place.

    Cameron did it for 2 years from 06-08 while the Tories completed their polciy review process-a process which Labour are beginning now. It was only 7 months ago we put out a pretty major document giving ideas abotu what we'd like to do and 2 months ago we elected a new leader. Policies take time to develop-as they should do-and Labour needs time to think through the current situation. Besides the job of an opposition is to, well, oppose....

    They're utterly failing in their role of forming a credible opposition and holding the coalition to account. They really should've made david their leader.

    It's called adversarial politics. You say it's white, I'll say it's black. It happens all the time.

    Exactly, they're the opposition, and its only a few months into the new government's tenure. Labour are doing what they are supposed to do.
