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

"Meet Labour’s newly selected parliamentary candidate in Welwyn Hatfield, Tara Lyons, who has told the world through social media that she’d like to “beat up” Prince William. She’s also fond of the word “b*tch” and threatens to “swing a f*cking punch”. Not one to get on the wrong side of…"

"Here is Jeremy Corbyn with ‘MI5 target’ Mandy Richards at an event in the Leader’s Office last year organised by Dawn Butler, who Richards says she used to work for. One is an eccentric leftie who subscribes to outlandish conspiracy theories and spent years campaigning against the British state and security services, the other is Mandy Richards…"
Has she blamed any of the septic spy agencies or Mossad? She's missing a trick there!
What a fruitloop.
 
Your comment on understanding productivity may be valid, but not just because some people will get extra days off.
A huge percentage of workers have to work bank holidays if they are on shift so won't get any extra days off. Many of these workers work in the care or retail sector and many get no extra pay for working bank holidays.
Four extra bank holidays could easily mean four extra days a care worker has to fund child care as their child/childrens school may be closed due to bank holiday.

For employers who have a fixed income like the: police, fire, ambulance, NHS, armed forces etc this will just add an extra burden to their finances and man power.

There will of course be extra hassle for those needing to get to work while the bus companies have an extra four days of 'bank holiday' services.

This would be yet another set of days off that mostly benefitted shiny arses or lackies like politicians.

Edit. For those who seem to think most Labour voters are on benefit this will of course mean an exta four days that the DWP are closed so unable to offer advice or take claims.
Bank holidays attract 2.5 times the going rate for me. I will gladly accept these extra days off then work them as overtime since they will need people in.

Could make parliament a bit more interesting and finally drive home how dangerous these lot are to people.
 
Does the phrase 'Bread and Circuses' mean anything?

Labour promises four more bank holidays if it wins general election

Jeremy Corbyn says workers deserve more time off after years of ‘damaging Tory austerity’

Under Labour’s proposals, UK-wide public holidays would be held on St David’s Day (1 March), St Patrick’s Day (17 March), St George’s Day (23 April) and St Andrew’s Day (30 November).

Now, the earliest possible date for Easter is March 22 and the latest possible is April 25.
So, in a two month period, you'll have FIVE days off.
Comrade Corbyn obviously doesn't understand productivity, does he?
He's adopting the French model, the one Macron's axeing
 
"Dangerously Left-Wing" Hayek Hatchet Job - Guido Fawkes

"Angela Eagle and Imran Ahmed’s new book The New Serfdom“, a 400-page hatchet job on the great liberal thinker Friedrich Hayek, is being lauded with praise in Labour circles, most effusively from Nick Cohen. Guido must come to Hayek’s defence in the face of their rewriting of history."

"The New Serfdom is a reminder that, even as the relatively moderate challenger to Corbyn, Eagle is still a liberty-hating socialist who opposes free markets and fundamentally values the state over the freedom of the individual. Even Ed Miliband’s office warned that Ahmed was “dangerously left-wing” when he became a Shadow Cabinet adviser."
 
Oh to be a fly on the wall?
Apparently Peston says it's not going well. Posted 6:18pm

The auguries for tonight’s meeting between Jeremy Corbyn and mainstream representatives of the Jewish community are not great, following what in the political world would have been called a “sherpas” scoping discussion yesterday.

That was a discussion between Seumas Milne, Corbyn’s director of strategy and communications, and officials from the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council, and I am told it did not go well.

When the officials from the Jewish groups stressed the importance of expelling alleged anti-semites from the party there was a lot of talk of the importance of due process by Milne.

However, Milne apparently told the Jewish groups that even Labour’s adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of anti-Semitism would only include the the core, non legally binding definition, and not the attached notes that say one manifestation of anti-Semitism would be “the targeting of the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity”.

In other words, unless Corbyn himself over-rules his most influential aide, tonight’s meeting – which has just started – will not go well.

I am not holding my breath for a statement from the Board of Deputies and Jewish Leadership Council that they are now persuaded Labour under Corbyn has properly understood what it takes to cut out the cancer of anti-Semitism.

I don't think she is local and Worcester has a 1.06% black population. Not a great fit into the local area.
So who selected her and what was the winning strategy she has over others? A look on her website claims


Ticking all the left boxes but I wonder if she is a player of a certain card?
Ace of spades comes to mind.
 
News of Jebollahs meeting gets worse, according to the Jewish Chronicle

By 6pm on Sunday, the round table was effectively dead in the water. At that point, it seemed clear that all Jewish community leaders who could reasonably claim to act as community representatives had ruled themselves out.

David Baddiel, who has eloquently tackled the issue of anti-Semitism in football, appeared to be hedging his bets. And the only people whose names were confirmed on the guest list was the anti-Zionist fringe group, Jewish Voice for Labour, and some chap called Gary, who's not actually Jewish, but is somehow an expert on all things anti-Semitic.
I wonder if Gary is a Meerkatz walt ?
