Brendan Barber is absolutely right.
I'm so glad we've moved on from the days when the governing party's economic incompetence led to recession which left 3 million people on the dole.
I'm delighted we no longer have a government which attacks some of the poorest people in scoiety, taking away their benefits and even turning them out of their homes if they can't work.
It makes a refreshing change not to have a government which blindly supports right-wing Republican presidents in their military escapades.
It's terrific not to have a government which panders to the right-wing tabloid press on issues like immigration.
And I'm sure I'm not alone in welcoming the fact that we no longer have a government which doesn't care about the gap between rich and poor.
Yep, Brendan Barber's totally correct. If we had all those things happening, there would undoubtedly be riots in the streets.
