The Welcome to the Labour Party Email is Sad and Positive

Following the recent UK General Election result, which confirmed to me that Imhad to actually do something to help drag the country back from selfism and the self-flagellation of “austerity”, I rejoined the Labour Party. The email I received to confirm this is both pleasing and saddening.

It’s from outgoing leader Ed Miliband. He seemed a pleasant fellow but not one I could support. So, it’s sad to see him go as another reasonable but ineffectual human being ends his personal dream. 

However, he comes from a dark time in Labour history, the Blair/Brown years, the war and centrism years. So his departure is a good sign.
I now get to have a say in the new leadership of the party. It feels good.
