I voted Tory back in the 70s poss 72 in Germany voted bmp the next election then discovered labour and the rest is history. Jerry corbyn is a great man and would have made a superb prime minister however as we kmow the trumped up antisemitism campaign killed him off, except that he is not an antisemite he is just anti colonialisation by Israel
Corbyn’s supporters always claimed he could win a general election. And he won two — for the Tory party. I don’t want to criticise his character or ideology. Quite the opposite. Let’s assume — as his supporters do — that he had unparalleled ethics and ideas. Doesn’t that make his failure to win office even greater? He savaged former prime minister Blair, thereby de-legitimising the only elected Labour government most British people have known.

He sat out the Brexit campaign, handing the right of the Tory party a huge victory. After offending the Jewish community, he tried to make amends by attending the one Passover seder, at a radical leftwing collective, where his presence was all but guaranteed to offend mainstream Jewish opinion.

After losing one election, he tried to win another by offering a more radical version of the same policies. Corbyn faced a government that had suffered the biggest parliamentary defeats in history and brought the economy to the brink of recession. He still convinced the British public that there was a less competent alternative. Imagine a burglar who finds a house, with the doors unlocked and the occupants busy beating each other senseless, and who not only manages to steal nothing but actually drops his own wallet on the way out. That was Corbyn’s relationship to the Tory party.

With jezbollah's departure, Labour stopped drinking, but it is still a long way from sobriety. Starmer and his troup speak of bringing the party together. Come on, it’s not post-apartheid South Africa. You can’t bring the party together while reconnecting with the country — because the country doesn’t want to reconnect with Labour while it indulges Corbynite delusions - specifically the self-destructive madness of identity politics (tranny rights anybody ...).

When YouGov asked the British public to give Corbyn’s leadership a mark out of 10, nearly half gave him zero. Only 6 per cent of voters have a very favourable view of Corbyn. Of course he was big on social media. Down with da kids.The wisdom of crowds is fine, but it loses to the idiocy of mobs. Corbyn said his ideas had been proved “absolutely right”. Imagine having all the right arguments, and losing by a landslide. What could possibly have been the problem?

If Labour wants to find a hallowed place for Corbs, good luck to it. But the rest of us will remember him differently. The English language lacks a phrase that means the opposite of 'a hard act to follow'. 'Corbyn' would make an excellent shorthand

But he was good with money
 
That's not strictly the whole story, is it?

There was no shortage of Tory remainers committed to sabotaging Brexit, or at the very least, modifying it to an extent that it was a Brexit in name only. Labour were dithering indecisively and could neither piss nor get off the pot.

The Tory remainers were the real threat to Brexit.

Aided and abetted by former Conservative MP and sitting Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow.

Woosh...

And unlike you, black holes and I are irresistibly attractive
It's good to see you're off your meds again, hence becoming increasingly delusional as the quoted post shows - Lets face it, the only thing less attractive than you is Dianne Abbott having a bad hair (wig) day

There is a count table "groaning under the weight of votes for Conservatives" an MP has said, with the results expected to be announced imminently.

Robin Millar, the MP for Aberconwy, added: "This is not going to be pretty for Labour - and it's already begun."

No mid term Parliament kicking on the horizon it would seem.

And this is a cracker :) :)

For all the post-election analysis, there is one very simple reason for some of the Tories' success overnight.

A Labour councillor has put it succinctly: "People just think Boris is great."

Those words must have near choked you to death Mark Wallace, Labour Councillor :):)

Hartlepool makes Boris bombproof for the immediate future. Anyone want to throw in a kitchen sink to go with the wallpaper?

Well I think all of us Bozo Fanbois have learnt a lesson today. If it hadn't been for the litany of cronyism, corruption and chaos reported in the media about the Johnson leadership, the Tory Party wouldn't have had to pay the electoral price around the country.

Judging by today's result if Boris had a squeaky clean media profile, he would indeed be World King by now, and the Labour Party would be a small grease spot in Tower Hamlets.

Such a tragedy.
