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

My question therefore is how many of you have been contacted by your MP, been to a meeting they have held on this, spoken to them on the street/in the pub and given their views?
I tried to get a word in with my MP, but he seemed preoccupied with texting some barmaid. Yup, he's the one.
 
I have been watching Daily Politics and various other news and political discussion programme and nearly every MP stands up and says something like "The people of my constituency are for/against/don't know ........" about brexit. My question therefore is how many of you have been contacted by your MP, been to a meeting they have held on this, spoken to them on the street/in the pub and given their views?

I have attended a public meeting with my MP ( Labour) about GP services and after the meeting I tried to raise brexit with him. Not interested, not even see my website or contact me later, just a blank!

So are these MPs really bluffing it when they talk about their constituents?
emailed her an age ago and actually got a response which loosely translated said: "very interesting but wrong, go and read the guardian it will explain everything wrong with you".
 
Margaret Hodge to be disciplined for calling Jezbollah an anti semetic racist

As Guido puts it
She'll be OK. Despite the Chakrabarty report clearing the party of any whif of anti Semitism, the class traitor Hodge will face one of the party's new, fair and independent tribunals to determine whether she is guilty or guilty. The rehearsals are going well, as shown below.



Whatever happens, she might face deselection at the next election, like these poor sods.



Lets face it -

She's rich

She's married to a Knight of the Realm

She's Jewish

She's fu*ked

Oh how I'll laugh if she is subjected to the same kind of televised show trial that she arranged for prominent businessmen when she was Chair of the Public Accounts Committee in Parliament.

Be nice to see her head on a pike on Westminster Bridge.


Accompanied by 600 odd others.


No loss to the country.

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.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
 
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.

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.
