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

The irony being they've probably lost more money by not paying for a headline act that would bring in the punters

Shame this lesson in capitalism will go over their heads
Or indeed stated Labour policy: borrow to "invest"

Not much more to it than the inevitable result of traditional Socialist policies: in fighting, factionalism, muddle and gross incompetence

In other news, a couple of the wheels come of the Socialist bus:

Brexit changes reversed amid Labour revolt

"Attempts to keep the UK in the European Economic Area after Brexit have been defeated in the House of Commons, amid a major Labour revolt over the issue.

A Lords amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill, committing the UK to retain EEA membership after it leaves the EU next year, was reversed by 327 votes to 126.

Jeremy Corbyn urged his MPs to abstain but 75 voted for and 15 against.

Shadow minster Laura Smith and five junior aides quit their jobs in order to defy the party whip over the issue. . . "

O'Jeremy is going to need a couple of Fair Trade wheat grass smoothies. come Labour Live-though I have to say that I'm a touch taken by surprise at the depth of the revolt, for that is what it is.
Meh, none of this matters.

If the ERG lunatics manage to get the hard brexit they're aiming for, the UK will collapse. The conservative government will then be held responsible since they were in power throughout this process.

The electorate will lurch for the money printing rainbows and unicorns offered by the JC led labour party.

Corbyn will be in No10 by 2020 should the above events come to pass.

Most leavers didn't vote thinking they'd be significantly poorer as a result. Their anger will be directed at the conservatives responsible.

Corbyn is playing a blinder. Muddying the waters wrt to his position, which is historically Eurosceptic.

His strategy is to keep as far away from this train wreck in slow motion as he possibly can. When it all comes apart, he will claim that it was nothing to do with him.

he'll have no trouble filling ministerial appointments if he wins power.

I know this opinion won't be popular here. But think back to the last GE. The consensus here was that Labour would be destroyed for a generation...

He's an easy man to ridicule, yet easier to underestimate

Just one problem with that: you forgot to begin it with 'Once upon a time . . . '

Labour's infighting is such an alternative.
It's not affecting national policy, so the impact is negligible.

If Tory infighting drags the UK into recession and hardship, the most natural thing in the world is to vote for the opposition.

Hard brexit will certainly cause this and probably bring down the government, in my view.
 
National policy? Have a look at Cawyn Jones speech today. The rifts are big. They loose the out voting valley seats Labour go no where.
Its a tight rope Labour do not want but have idiots like owen smith p€ssing the locals off.

Yes, national policy.

Labour aren't in government

Being pushed into a shite Brexit will be worse, at least a hard Brexit will cushion us from when the EU disintegrates, and merrily set our own monetary policy and trade deals rather than having to pay for the results of the Euro imploding and the EU's policy of uncontrolled immigration

Once the Soviet Of All Soviets aka The PLP decide what their Brexit policy is and Great Leader and Dear Leader can ensure a consensus within the PLP ('ticularly before a rather important HoC vote) and they manage to win the next GE then, yes, the magnificent Socialist Ship of State can glide effortlessly onward.

. . . currently, though, Labour resemble this:

Well Jezza has achieved something few, if any, Party leaders have managed: 100 resignations during his watch.
Lefties miss the fact that May is losing ministers in single figures which appears patently is a disaster whereas it is OK for Corbyn to be up to three fugures. Happy days!
