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

Care to elaborate?
Sorry, I thought everyone listened to radio 4.
A few Jewish MPs are miffed at the NEC and Jemery not fully adopting the IHRA 's definition of anti-Semitism.
one said there were quite a few MPs considering leaving the party.
i think that definitely deserves popcorn.
IHRA -International Holocaust Remembrance Association.
 
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.


Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.


Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
When they came for me, they sent a car, some champers and a couple of ladies as thanks for the lists of all the dodgy coves I'd provided to them.

Cheers, easy.

Come on which "arrser" is this? :) County councillor, 72, is arrested over racist Facebook posts that call Diane Abbott a ‘monkey’ | Daily Mail Online
snip "Richard Alderman called Dianne Abbott a monkey in one of a series of 'racist and bigoted' Facebook posts. In another he called for the Prime Minister Theresa May to be hanged for treason.
He was arrested under the Communications Act 2003 and released under investigation"
He should be severely punished for insulting monkeys!

I imagine that theres more clearly racial abuse than that and quite rightly he has been arrested - because the offending quote is "The Monkey is out of her tree again" - and that may not have been intended as a racist remark - simply an inference to shes insane and monkey being an obvious tree dweller -

I use the expression chimped it to describe a minor cock up made by me or anyone else -
I have on occasion been asked not to use it because the recipient felt there's racist connotations to the phrase.
They've accepted that wasn't my intent it was simply an expression I likewise have respected how and why they've objected - No harm no foul,

@widow11 - as an example of perceptions and why offensive to A doesn't mean B intended it to be such in light of our previous spat.
 
The Paras were forbidden by the chain of command to call the Falkland Islanders "Bennies" because they were perceived to talk slowly like the dimwitted character Benny in a TV soap of the day called Crossroads. Being Paras they called them "Stills" instead .... as in still Bennies. That would work as it could be argued that it could be still anybody/thing but of course we would all know to what reference the jibe was uttered.

I wasn't a fan of soaps and Crossroads wasn't something I set out to watch but I quite fancied Miss Diane. (Susan Hanson is 75 now would you believe). Anyway back on topic, if you said Diane A***t is a still, I can think of lots of things she is still, rather than just a Benny :lol:

I was looking for a pic of DA with a Benny hat when I noticed a pattern in the search results by random chance.

Cheers dits.
 
Wonder what the odds of JC being PMJC by this time next year are?
Shortening by the hour as PMTM flounders over Brexit, the EU rejecting her latest offer won't help either and I can't see what further concessions she can make without total capitulation.
 
The thought of Comrade Cob in no.10 is truly worrying.
Europe divides both major parties, yet the governing party will carry the can for how this pans out.

I can't see brexit being fudged. Thus it either gets binned or we crash out. Both will lead to a crisis by the spring and a general election.

The conservatives aren't going to win once the country wakes up to the new reality

Indeed, but if she walks away. Hard brexit will be utterly ruinous.

So in short, damned either way.

The new reality?
Do we really want a PM who wants to get rid of the Monarchy,thinks we should copy the economics of Venezuela, hates the Armed Forces(especially the Army,which he absolutely despises),and supports the ira?
