Labour Party managed to screw itself god knows why for Bush, Chenny, Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, etc.

Everyone in Media was asking Labour if they need to apologise for overspending, but never heard anyone

asking Labour if they are sorry about Iraq War, not even anyone from audiences of Question Time and such.

Had Labour Candidates themselves come out loudly against what Blair got them in, people would have at least

come to recognise that Tories voted with Blair at higher percentage of MPs than Labour did.

Did watch Ed Miliband talking on TV but except “you know my views on Iraq war” did not hear more.

With respect to banks going bust he apportioned some blame on Tories saying they opposed regulations.
