Oops, 7 Days. Hey look I don't update on weekends.

Would you want to lead this party?

Wow. The British Labour Party is full of vicious back-stabbing bastards:

Maybe the GOP should take some lessons from them? A little bit of public dissent might be a good idea.

Indeed. The ability for MPs to fuck up the PM with relative ease is fundamentally necessary in a democratic state.

Actually, the GOP is far more about marketing and "staying on message." What you're describing is more like the Democrats - who *do* have dissent and who *do* complain. Which is partly why the GOP is beating the dems in the polls: by portraying the dems as lost and clueless. Why do you think so many wingnuts want to know what the democratic plan is to save them from uppity darkies in the middle east. In the GOP, no dissent is permitted.

"In the GOP, no dissent is permitted."

Much like in the good old soviet days in the USSR under Stalin and co.

There won't be much dissent if you are the ruling party...
