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

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.

Fair enough I see your point about not relocating Sausage or Tatty side - if that's how you view capitalism

But my point still stands and you still havent answered the question I asked which was Why Not move to a (Socialist) country that doesn't behave like this
One of the Scandinavian countries perhaps or North Korea*


*Ok thats a piss take
 
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
Talking about old folks and accountability, why did you lie about your mother Bugsy?

Well I am sure a 70% payrise has improved the lot of everybody else in these days of council cutbacks.
 
No hypocrisy from Labour as usual....

Labour call for rail nationalisation at Westminster – while handing Wales’ railways to transnational corporations

In the 2016 National Assembly election, one of the Labour Party’s key flagship transport policies was that they would “deliver a new, not-for-profit, rail franchise from 2018”.

Ironically, the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Ken Skates authored that manifesto.

Today, the Welsh Labour Government has handed over responsibility for our national railways to a French-Spanish, for-profit, consortium of transnational corporations – the former made a profit of €313 million in 2016.

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.
