No opposition to speak of

With the Lib Dems and Tories locked in coalition Labour is the only party with potential to be a voice of opposition in the UK at the moment.

Problem is they can’t really be effective until the distraction of the Labour leadership is out of the way.

I suppose I never expected them to get it done that quickly – the contest will not finish until September – but it does mean that the Government will get a very easy ride in the Commons until then.

In terms of getting out a coherent message, of slipping out stories which will damage opponents and generally taking control of the media narrative – it looks like the coalition will have a free pass for the summer.
