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

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.
Likewise. Poverty then meant second hand or home made clothes and toys, outside toilets, electricity downstairs only, no telephone or fridge and very little to eat. Today it means an out of date iphone and a small plasma tv.

Many SJWs have careers and speaking fees based on poverty continuing. The definition changes accordingly.
 
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.

My family of 6 lived in a garden shed on the edge of a disused mine's slag heap. We use to have to break this discarded rock with our bare feet for 10 hours everyday on end, just to get enough coal dust to heat our weekly meal of potato peel boiled in puddle water

If we are living in such dire and abject poverty why does about half the human race want to move here, hide in the backs of lorries, walk the Channel Tunnel and sail in home made rafts?

What, my butler forgot to iron my copy of The Times this morning, that bloke Jeremy or what ever his name is is right, we are going down the tubes.
 
Poverty is not smoking 40 a day while watching Jeremy Kyle on a 50 inch telly with surround sound and drinking Stella.

"relative poverty". Defined so it can never be solved.
 
I'm just surprised Comrade Corbyn hasn't offered a free iPhone X to everyone under the age of 25, millenials would lap it up
Have you had a sneak preview of the Labour manifesto for the next election?

You jest (and that's fine) but exbluejob's experience mirrors my own in Burnley during the late 60's & 70's. Irinically we lived in much better conditions in Aden, Cyprus, Malaya, Singapore and Germany. The transit camps in Westbourne near Havant and Kiddermister were better too!
 
@lokiuk Are you my allocated fixer upper?
 
Are you a bisexual woman with big tits and loose morals ?

Oh hang on that's my missus....
I can be if you want me to be...gender fluidity and all that.

Isn't Burnley still like that now?

You left out gas mantles.
Changing the mantle in my Nan's kitchen, my first taste of technology.
She had leccy in the front room only .(when I was small), gas in the back and on the, very small, upstairs landing.
 
But, back in the 50's nobody felt poor, everybody was in the same boat. Even some of the 'slums' weren't, they were knocked down to build the great panacea of the 'housing problem'.............Blocks of flats! ;-)

Smaller footprint and, more people per sq.mtr!
