Nothing Lasts Forever

Ed Kilgore describes the Labour Party's drubbing in recent local elections, combined with terrible national poll numbers, as "Bad News From Across the Pond." And certainly for anyone affiliated with the Labour Party the news is bad.

But then again, they've been in office for about eleven years now in a system with few checks and balances so on some level the fact that the Tories look positioned to win just seems like a two party system working the way it's supposed to -- having been beaten several times in a row, Labour repositioned itself, then won a bunch of elections in a row, and now the Tories have repositioned themselves and are poised for victory.
