I’ve seen Anneliese Dodds in BBC Breakfast news. She was complaint about the evil Tories imposing real term pay cuts by cutting £20 from Universal Credits and putting up tax.

Her solution is to borrow more money which will grow the economy because people will spend that money on the high street.

It doesn’t help that Ms Dodds has has the sort of whiny vocal delivery that some speakers mistake for sympathy but I just find annoying.

It also doesn’t help that she seems to have made a conscious choice to be dowdy.

We should probably be grateful. The more she appears on TV the less likely it is that Labour will get into power.
 
Alter the thread title. Labour - whats the point. They're all twats

I hear you, she is a waste of space, but on the bright side, she is keeping John McDonnell off the TV!

You make a compelling point. He is a deeply unpleasant creature packaged as a human.
 
From wikipedia:
"Born in Aberdeen and privately educated at Robert Gordon's College, Dodds read Philosophy, Politics and Economics as an undergraduate at St Hilda's College, Oxford and subsequently took a masters in Social Policy at the University of Edinburgh and a PhD in Government at the London School of Economics."

Another one who went to public school, did PPE at Oxbridge and then became a professional politician. Why am I not surprised?
Same school as Gove. It obviously has a track record in producing useless twunts.

I think you pay too much attention to lefty media. They hate Gove because he’s brighter than most of us and quite effective.

If Ms Dodds’ academic qualifications are anything to go by she is also brighter than most of us. I wonder if she actually believes the twaddle she peddles.

That may be your opinion, probably based on blind devotion to team Boris, but all I see is a slimy, unprincipled toad. Ah, yes, I see where you’re coming from now.

Having spent 25 years working in Aberdeen I was alway amazed how certain people would at some time drop the fact that they - or their kid - attended RG. Seemed to me the main purpose of the school was to provide fodder for the other kids to beat up.

Light travels much faster than sound.
This is why some people appear to be bright until they speak.

Socialism is a bit like religion. You’ve got to be thick as mince to fall for it or be cunning and unprincipled enough to convince yourself before you set out to convince others. La Dodds falls into the latter.

Or as I once heard. Socialism is fine until you run out of other people's money.

I have a grudging admiration for the middle aged Socialist Worker sellers.
Every Saturday they put up their little pasting tables in town, and get roundly ignored by 99.9% of passers by.

They must have a Del Boy mentality -

“next election boys, you just wait! Our time will come!”
 
I have reported the originator of this thread for gratuitous discrimination against other shadow cabinet mongs. They are also entitled to know what the point of them is...

  • Jonathon Ashworth - Why is there even a thing called Jonathon Ashworth?
  • Lady Nugee of Thornberry - Those White Van Men are not going to sneer at themselves you know.
  • David Lammy - On Mastermind (stop sniggering at the back)... “ Who acceded to the English throne . . . after the death of his father Henry VIII in 1547?” Answer: “Henry VII”. Nice one Mr Thicky. (private tuition by the Abbottosaurus obviously)

... 95 members of the shadow cabinet but apart from family and close friends, nobody has ever heard of 95% of them - it doesn't get much more pointless than that.

True, though he's a shifty two-faced sod who has a habit of back-stabbing his own and I wouldn't trust him as far as I could spit.

She's also had zero impact as shadow chancellor, so I suspect she may be 'promoted' when bent-knee Starmer gets around to having a re-shuffle.
