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

For a man who is so interested in promoting peace and remembering the victims of Terrorism, all Terrorism, comrade cob/Jeremy C appears to have missed a trick. If he is so truly interested in promoting peace why did he not appear in the town of Omagh today? Was this not a terrorist attack that he should be commemorating with the families of the victims, their last such public commemoration of this tragic and murderous event?
He could even have laid a wreath...

They are a national party, aren't they?

There was a similar one to that in Germany in the 20th century. If only I could remember what they were called!
I remember reading about them I think. Were they the Hackenkreuz Party?
 
Were they ever nationalised?
No, GPs detested the idea of the NHS and Attlee was quite cutting about them if I remember rightly. Their cooperation has basically been bought (at a high price) ever since as private contractors, particularly the Labour govts disastrous contact renegotiations about 10 yrs ago that removed out of hours provision from surgeries but increased their financial rewards, sometimes very significantly.

But that bomb was planted by his mates.

It wasn't just GPs that were agin the formation of the NHS, hospital doctors, particularly at Consultant level, were dead against it also; but they also were bought off with large salaries and including time off from NHS work to undertake private consultations. One of the reasons that the guy you see in the NHS before you are recommended to go private to jump the queue is the guy you see at the private clinic! Doctors continue to screw the NHS out of loads of hard cash.
 
Was the self-proclaimed " friend of all victims of terrorism " at Omagh today? If not, was his absence anything to do with them being the wrong kind of victim?

The question has to be asked, is Corbyn a 'Man of Peace' as he claims.... or a Political Cluster-F**k that will make the Labour Party unelectable?

Good point well made but also worth emphasising that private health companies have always provided health care on a very large scale to the NHS. They’re called GP surgeries. And dental surgeries, pharmacies and opticians. All (or the vast majority) of which are private businesses subcontracting to the NHS.
Oi! That's my ******* line! And I gave yet to get an answer out of any leftie I've ever pointed it out to. Given the 4 primary pillars of the NHS have been private since it's inception, what is the problem with a hospital or physio clinic being private if it's still free at the point of delivery?

They usually turn red, splutter and call me a tory at that point, which I take insult at.

Definitely "a nettle that needs to be grasped" . . . even if VERY belatedly.

Or - dare one say - "a boil that needs to be lanced" . . . ;) .
 
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?
Our local MP (Lee Rowley (Conservative)), is cracking.
  • He's a local boy (37 years old), born in Chesterfield, so the area itself is of great interest to him.
  • He holds surgeries all over NE Derbyshire.
  • Wanders around the outlying villages and smaller towns, knocking on doors, and talking to people - even when there's no elections in the offing.
  • Has a great deal of interest in local affairs, and makes a point of involving himself in them, of particular interest to me is:
    • the attempted housing developments on Greenbelt in Dronfield.
    • the fracking test rigs which are being put up in the area.
  • Takes part in local community events, if there's a fun-run in the offing, you can't stop the bugger.
  • He gets involved in local NHS patient groups.
  • He's approachable, earnest and, dare I say, actually likeable!
  • He's also very easy to contact, he responds to phone calls, texts, emails and Facebook.
As much as I want to despise the bugger, I can't - he's exactly what you want in your MP. Although my Mother in Law has told him that he should wear a tie more often when he's out and about in his constituency talking to folk.

I may even have half a man-crush on him.

He was "present, but not involved".

I truly hope that that little gem becomes the catchphrase dear Jeremy is immortalised by, rather like Bill Clinton's "I smoked marijuana, but didn't inhale".....
 
Or another gem from Uncle Bill '' I did not have sex with THAT woman''
Perversely St Jeremy is rather proud of his conquest of Abbot. Perhaps he won the "Pull the Pig" sweepstake at Labour Party HQ?
