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

It appears that if you are sufficiently against the institutions you wish abolished, your mates with sufficient influence will get you into them... to destroy from within.

That at least is the theory.

Problem is, once they get in they like it so much they simply stay there, fat dumb and happy.
Also a nice little earner.
 
So what has she done to get a seat in the lords?
Seemingly being a friend of TGH is all it takes.
A controversial campaigner who supported activists suspended from Labour over alleged antisemitism has taken her seat in the House of Lords.
Baroness Osamor was flanked by supporters Lord Harris of Haringey and Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon, as she swore the oath of allegiance to the Queen.
Her nomination by Jeremy Corbyn angered Jewish groups, who said it was a “two-fingered salute” to the community.

Apparently, she should have been ‘enobled’ back in May, but she has been waiting for the authorities to include Nigeria in her full title!
FFS! Only in the UK. The so-called House of Lords reforms has been an absolute disaster. You would think the quality line would have been raised significantly, once Politicians were able to select the majority of peerages, with just a smattering of the old school, ‘entitled’ wealthy families making up the numbers.
The opposite has happened - the bloated House of Lords is now crammed with Party loyalists (over 100 Liberals for Christ sake), sleb types (Brady, Mone) and outright shocking selections such as this individual.
It is totally discredited and it’s about time it was trimmed down to about half the size it is now.

And its members mostly elected, preferably by PR & more specifically 1st AV.
I'd like to see 10% made up of people successful in their field; industrialists, scientists, educators, doctors, etc. (but NOT fuggin lawyers of any kind).
