What a paradox that Blair's party is called ''Labour's'' party.

The current Labour party is radically changed from the original Labour party. In Cypriot terms, the current Labour party is more DHSY than AKEL. However, if you go back to the early 1980s, the then Labour party wouldn't have seemed so different from the way AKEL currently operates.

No, I was saying that AKEL and the Labour Party of the early 1980s (the Michael Foot loony-left era) wouldn't be so different...
