The big tragedy, for me, of Labour's total wipe-out, is that I found I didn't care very much.
I stayed up last night until about 2-ish, obsessively watching the car-crash of the Euro-results coming in. And I just didn't feel what I should have felt ...
So. Is this because Labour really has lost it's purpose and meaning as a party? Ceding it's (diverse) historical constituencies to the BNP, SNP, Greens etc. while the swinging centrists go back to the Tories to carry on the Thatcher/Blair project as usual?
Or is this lack of purpose and difference just a myth that the media has managed to convinced me of?
