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

Be interesting if they did and her briefs started rolling out the evidence, of why she called him a antisemite.
Possible saving grace as to why they wont push the issue but would evidence be enough to convince a jury that he is antisemitic. I am reminded of the Jeffery Archer libel case, he sued the Daily Star for libel, not the NOW as his lawyers knew the Star,s defence was not as robust as the NOW. Archer won and for many years was considered innocent until a former partner blew the whistle.

Dangerous thing to get into the witness box, think also Jonathan Aitken and Oscar Wilde, give enough rope etc.

Still think various intelligence services will have files on him, or if not previously will have now and will be digging, think Mossad and CIA ?

Whilst brave and most likely truthful also leaves her self wide open to a possible libel, not unknown for Labour to resort to this.

UKIP delayed MPs libel case settlement

Labour can let this go unchallenged.
Bringing a libel case requires you to prove you have been libelled. The "defendant" (is that the correct term in a civil case) just needs to provide a level of evidence that discredits or unbalances the balance of probability that a libel has occurred. Bringing a case in public that isn't cast iron and lead lined is more likely to backfire horrendously.

The conservatives are so tied up with brexit, I can't see anyone other than Corbyn as the next PM.

Whatever they deliver will turn off enough people to get labour in.

Because the Tories are in govt, they will carry the can
 
Will Jeremy be attending these celebrations?

It was the wrong sort of socialism/communism. You will know the right sort because everyone will be loving it and wanting to join.

You probably thought Remain would win the referendum as well !

We had a GE on 28/02/74, where Labour won 301 seats and formed a minority government. I reckon that history might be about to repeat itself.
Fair enough.

I don't think that a new government can achieve anything other than what is on the table. Labours 6 tests are as impossible as PMTMs apparent redlines some time ago.

Do you think that a new labour government could achieve anything other than ownership of a no deal crisis or no brexit?
