AN excited fan of British politics cannot wait for the season to officially kick off next week.
Tom Logan first got bitten by the politics bug during the 1997 election, and admits that as soon as August ends he is buzzing with excitement at the thought of the famous green benches filling up with key players.
He said: “Don’t get me wrong, I like having the summer off. Gives me a chance to think about something except politics for a change.
“But the thought that tomorrow they’ll all be filing in there, refreshed and ready for a thrilling autumn of bills, amendments and private motions, well there’s nothing like it. All that heritage and tradition providing a backdrop to our thoroughly modern game.
“I’m a Labour fan – they were winning everything when I was a kid – and I think Starmer needs more time to impress his style on the team, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s an early change of management.
“Meanwhile Boris has lost Hancock and made the controversial decision to bring back Javid. He’s been getting a strong performance from a squad of frankly limited talent but it’s going to fall apart sometime. Especially with these big clashes in Europe coming up.
“Prediction for the season? Narrow Tory win but then Boris will receive a big-money offer he can’t refuse and quit. After that it’s anyone’s game.”
