LONDON Setting up an intriguing election battle, Britains opposition Labor Party announced Friday that it had hired President Obamas chief campaign advisor to help the party return to power next year over the ruling Conservatives.
The decision to recruit David Axelrod means that the 2015 British election will pit two of Obamas strategists against each other.

The eyes of the world will be on Britain in 2015 because of the contest between ideas about what a healthy economy looks like in the 21st century, Axelrod said.

“FREE SCH*T! Free sch*t for e’rybody, Mate!”
Hope! Change! We are the ones we have been looking for!! Useless claptrap!
It’s the ‘Labour’ party. Britain doesn’t have a Labor party.
Wonder if the British media will roll over and become the willing pawns of the Marxists, the way they’ve done in the United States.
And this is why if I were British I’d vote UKIP. Liberal Democrats on both sides of me!..
There should be, for the pregnant woman vote.
I was going to say, First Black PM all the other reasons
given for a prog win were bogus.
The UK will be lucky if it avoids having its first muzzie/jihadist PM by 2024.
After the 2012 election, I actually think Axlegrease, Gibbs, and Plouffy could get Charles Manson elected as POTUS on the Dem ticket.
Prog advisors on both sides, no matter what happens
the people lose.
They’re good at what they do, and while they are hired guns, most won’t cross the street.
