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

And don't forget that in the Capitalist (neo-liberal, monetarist) world everything is privatised to remove any vestige of accountability. Just look at the shambles of old folks' homes in the UK.

MsG
Why would privatisation remove accountability? A private company has to operate within the law the same as a public company and surely has more accountability as it has shareholders to keep happy. A government run company can continually lose money, cut corners and under perform without the fear of going under.
It's just another socialist meme that is entirely untrue, trotted out by the hard of thinking.
 
I don't know if this has already been placed here, but I found it very funny. That such a Senior Politico (she's the Shadow DFID 'spokesman', apparently, and always at Corbyn's side during PMQs if Abbott is missing in inaction)) would even dream of committing an act of such gross plagiarism in this country is only an indication that standards have walked over the cliff, in a Corbynesque way:
Courtesy of Guido. Her maiden speech in the House was a copy-paste exercise too, from Wikipaedia. You really do wonder, sometimes.

So what your saying is you think all Brown peoples speeches sound the same -
You Ignorant racist


Edit - ah It appears somebody missed the joke
 
A socialist clusterfuck? Sweet Mother Macree! The drama...!

Who'da thunk it...?
This is a whole smorgasbord of politics, business and ineptitude. No dramas, I know my local train service is still screwed and the carriages will carry on with five million miles on the clock. Emperors New Clothes comes to mind.
Any how f#ck em. I use the train when I'm p#ssed, the miss just changed to working from home and driving to court.
 
It's not about not liking the UK, or even liking it. It's about the political and financial system that spoils the place, just like it spoils every other Capitalist nation. All of the organisations and institutions you mention (and a lot more besides) are expressly designed to nurture and support the destructive and counterproductive, corrupt and incompetent Capitalist system status quo in the UK and, as such, must be removed - which also applies to all the other Capitalist nations. Wherever you go in the world, you'll find the same; a selfish, entitled, corrupt and malevolent privileged class solely intent on preserving its wealth and privileges and not caring what happens to the rest of the population.

MsG
So what happened to Venezuala?

Let's ask some Venezuelan's shall we.......


Oh dear :rofl::rofl::rofl:
 
That should be peoples', I think. Plural, possessive etc.
Afraid not: as ‘people’ is obviously itself a plural, its possessive is people’s, e.g. the people’s princess (Gawd rest ‘er). ‘Peoples’ (plural of a plural) is much less often used to mean different races or nations (‘the various peoples of Asia’), and you would rarely, if ever, see its possessive (peoples’) in print. In this context, the former clearly applies.

It's ambiguous. The quote was 'all Brown peoples speeches', which could mean 'the speeches of all the Brown people', or 'all the speeches of the Brown people'. In one instance you're right and I'm wrong, in the other, you're wrong and I'm right. As the quote was wrong to start with, this is not a productive exercise. Oliver Kamm would probably tell us all to get a life.
 
No ambiguity: in both your options you (correctly) use the word ‘people’ as opposed to ‘peoples’. Either way, the possessive is people’s. And Kamm’s a Lefty, so he can do one. :wink:
 
Corbyn was ‘too stupid’ to tackle Labour Party anti-Semitism at meeting with Jewish leaders | Daily Mail Online

Jeremy Corbyn was ‘too unemotional or too stupid’ to understand claims that he has failed to combat anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, it has been claimed.
The Labour leader is described as ‘bored, uninterested and condescending’ in a leaked account of his meeting with Jewish leaders last month to discuss the issue.
It suggests he lacks the ‘emotional or intellectual ability’ to comprehend their demands for more action to tackle the problem.
By contrast, he sprang into life with a ‘convulsion’ when told that his support for a ‘two state solution’ in the rift between Israel and Palestine meant he was a ‘Zionist’.
