Comrade Corbyn to the fore - whither (or wither) the Labour Party?


Ah, so it’s ok that they were initially treated like shit because in the aftermath of being treated like shit they misbehave?


You’ve thought this through late on a Friday afternoon haven’t you?
 
Oh, don't let stacker hear you say that! He will be on your tagbday and night if he finds out o_O
And you'll have to see which way the crowd are going before deciding what remark will get you the most popularity.
 
If you read the comments on the Guardian the big elephant is ignored or given to whataboutry.
Immigration has pushed the price up and the available property down. Letting in eye watering amounts without upgrading the infrastructure leads to problems all over.

Labour brought that about, it also allowed 100% to a reckless 125% mortage. That really pushed the bubble up along with buy to let mortgages in the early 2000's.
But hey wrong type of Labour. I'm just sick of Labour bullshit on all levels.


As an aside I found a Labour supporter label herself "babycham socialist" either very accurate or another Labour twonk.
Spot on. And it was Labour that allowed rampant bad practice in the city, then didn't act soon enough or right enough to head off the disastrous crash.
 
We need to restore the principle that a decent home is a right owed to all, not a privilege for the few.
Restore, seems to be a recurring theme in much of Labour talk. I would like to know when this principle was current. Prior to WW2 most lived in rented homes including much of the middle class. A number of months ago we had the BBC show about the life of a house through about two hundred years which showed that although it was owned by some person much of it was rented out to others. Following WW2 we had the massive building of council housing or the purchase of large amounts of private rental houses. At that time it was very difficult to get a council house as you needed to show you were in work and of good character.

A number of you tube films.
1935

1971 You bastards you got rid of our lovely slum and gave us this.


Or the barbican, estates without cars. 1960s

In Jeremy's defence, in the 60s he was living in a large detached house in a rural setting with his own bedroom and generous garden, whereas now he he's in a shitty little semi in a grotty London suburb and has had to share with a succession of people, including at present a foreigner.

One imagines he has to squat or sit on the floor because he can't find a seat anywhere...
 
I would have thought Squatting would be right up his Marxist, Power to the people style.

Absolutely bang on. I have had several rants in various threads about this subject and the contention about people in the UK being in 'poverty'. Complete, utter and absolute balderdash and codswallop.

I know hard hard it was making ends meet in a working class council estate in Aberdeen from 1957 when I was born (3 teenage boys in 1 bedroom). I know my parents had things a darn sight tougher than I did and their parents tougher than that, plus war etc.
