BBC Daily Politics and PMQs

#1
This new sticky thread is here at the request of users, and is for commenting upon both Prime Minister's Questions and the BBC's Daily Politics programme.

As it's in CA, the usual rules apply - serious on-topic discussion and analysis only, no swearing and no ad hominem attacks.

Watching DP now, will someone put a gag on Bryant, he's nearly as bad as Kinnock.
The gag should be round his eyes, in front of the firing squad!

He is trying to save JC's arse over his stance, or as Jo Coburn points out, his non-stance ovet EU. Bryant is a complete, and smug, tw@t!

Corbyn's lacklustre pro-EU speech would have been mildly more effective if it hadn't been accompanied on news programmes by commentators pointing out he was against voting to remain in the EEC, against Lisbon and indicated he "may support" leaving the EU during his leadership campaign.

Given the unions all seem to be fervently for a "remain" outcome can we assume Jezza's volte face is clear evidence that his "new politics" is as firmly in the control of the out-of-touch dinosaurs like Len McCluskey as the old politics was...?

Corbyn's lacklustre pro-EU speech
Of course, Corbyn's only hope of being PM is if conservatives split following Brexit. Given his personal view on EU his best hope is therefore Brexit, (which he sort of likes) followed by General Election which he somehow wins.

Its all a bit Kafka...

I can't imagine a worse scenario, Brexit with team Corbyn managing the economy.

Don't bet on it, there are a heck of a lot of stupid people who have the vote, add them to those who have a vested interest in the Labour party forming the next government and it becomes a very real and scary possibility!

Add in Labours increasing use of postal voting fraud, anti-semitism to win the muslim vote, and acquiring the block vote of certain ethnic communities through tribal loyalties and you maybe right

Makes a change for Corbyn to quote other members of parliament than emails from unknown constituents!

CMD not coming up with much of an answer other than he knows best!

Err, no. He was having a pop at Citizen Khan - and JC tried to hand him his arse, but failed.
Unfortunately for JC, he does not have the skills or ability to nail CMD. To used to working in the context of echo chamber politics, in that when he speaks all he hears in agreement with what he has just said.
