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

I'm missing the irony, as I thought that was what lokiuk was highlighting.
I just find the opposition of monetary liberalism and social conservatism ironic.
 
He's another demagogue, albeit with a privileged education and a command of Latin
Are you hard of hearing or just hard of thinking?
I admire the fact that you are marketing your clown skills on multiple threads (very capitalist of you), however, you are in dire need of new material.
Edited to add. I have just looked at the definition of demagogue, just to be sure like, and I stand by my accusation of clown.
Just to close down a possible line of response...I have no fear of clowns per se, well not the ones who only have a red nose anyway, clownery sometimes spreads to the brain though, as Bronn knew.

Labour has got to solve antisemitism issue, says Eddie Izzard
The Labour Party is losing a perception argument according to Izzard.

Let me see now: Jezza's bessies with Hezbollah and never misses a chance to wind up the Jews… the Jewish community and most of the wider public sense he's anti-Semitic.
Perception argument Lost.
The wider public don't really give a shit about the Jews so its doubtful Corbyn cares to much.
 
You and your other anti-Semitic friends keep spouting that crap.
When the **** have the British public given a shit about the Jews? Read some ******* history.
800 years ago they were hoofed out of the country for 3 centuries, we only "remembered" Jews are so fantastically great after world war 2 and that lasted only as long as it took the future Israelis to murder British soldiers.

Britain's last anti-Jewish riots

The majority of the UK dont care what Labours opinion on the Jews are, its just a convenient stick to beat Corbyn with.
 
Labour no more represent the working men and women of this country and the utter distillation of this was that twat message of a white van plus England flag by some fat bint.
I appreciate that was a few years ago.
They haven't got any better.
 
As opposed to Labour who seem to be keen to offer a final solution

I was referring to the aforementioned politicians solutions for brexit.

As for your post above, apart from the dreadful turn of phrase, I can't see why there shouldn't be a 2 state solution
 
I agree with you and have said this on other threads.

I said at the time, pre Corbyn, that Labour need to move more left, Tories more right leaving Lib Dems/Greens to hold the middle ground. The trouble is both main parties have been moving in and taking over the policies of the other party leaving very little to choose between them. The only real difference was how money was spent, other than that policy was so close that I doubt the civil service even changed step on change of government.

Since then we have had Momentum in taking control of Labour. I don't have a real problem with that as the electorate will deal with that, except if they hoodwink the electorate to allow in a communist government, which again I don't believe will happen. I hope that Labour get their act together and ditch Momentum but retain a strong socialist outlook rather than just move in to the middle ground again.

As THR pointed out we do need two genuinely opposing Parties, with policies that show a real choice and difference, well at least two, so that the electorate will have a choice and the country has a real government set up.

Unfortunately I can't see that happening soon. I rather expect parliament to get worse during the withdrawal from the EU as normal politics takes a sideline while this internecine fighting goes on.
Personally I'd actually prefer two parties with similar policies, the public could then vote on which of them were more capable of achieving them. For this to even get off the drawing board though you'd need two parties with leaderships containing credible and capable, if not likeable, front benchers and at the moment the only one that comes anywhere near that are the Conservatives.

Just heard the Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP - a sub-section of the PLO) are meeting tomorrow. "For everyone not the Jew"? It will be interesting to see or hear if the Labour MPs who chickened out as Momentum took over, have the courage to face up to Corbyn, Seamus and JMcD and get the anti-Semitism in the Party sorted out and killed off!

If Labour gave as much time and effort to fighting anti-Semitism as they did to BAME issues and Diana's perennial Race Card then this would be sorted toot sweet. IMHO of course!

Exclusive: Jeremy Corbyn's party reforms – in full | LabourList

Looks like equality of outcome again. Absolutely no mention of dealing with anti-semitism.
Several comments express cynicism and concerns about Corbyn, Corbynistas and the pushing of small groups to effect change ie the way Corbyn and McDonnel emerged from an extremist fringe and are changing the party in to a replacement for the CPGB. It's not what the majority of the Labour party or it's members want but they are doing sod all about it.
There's a sweet irony in having a 'equality' section that mainly discusses having lists, groups or roles that forbid certain members joining. That's real equality for you

I think this one too may have some weird outcomes
