Choice in politics

Choice is good, the Labour party tells us. That simple if rather dubious maxim appears to be guiding many of their reforms in health and education. Now we hear that Gordon Brown wants to spend a huge amount of money to replace Britain's nuclear deterrent. So how about this: could we please have the choice of at least one party of the left in the next election please? I'm getting a little bored with the game of pick one from:

(a) a party of the right with vaguely greenish credentials (not really);

(b) a party of the centre veering right with no identifyable leadership or credibility; or

(c) a party of the right with no respect for privacy, the institutions of the welfare state or international law.
