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

This is a classic example of Labour promoting quota over ability, he has now been an Mp for 2 years with another few years to go doing nothing but getting a decent wage, does he even go to the House these days?
Also a classic example of habitual unthinking Labour voters voting for any person flying the Labour flag.

Wasn't even the local party who put him forward, parachuted in by momentum.
 
He has cerebral palsy, hemiparesis and is on the autism spectrum. Partly the reason (male) MPs no longer have to wear ties, he cannot do one up.
Clip-on, problem solved.

Oh wait, the world has to change for one person doesn't it.

Sorry to hear about his issues, but sometimes a **** is just a **** and would be without any diagnosis.

Yes, but voted in by the constituency.
To be fair in some constituencies it makes absolutely zero difference what kind of candidate is placed there and by whom, so long as they have the right rosette they will get elected by the morons that will only ever vote for a party and not the candidate. There are quite a lot of these constituencies that make the old rotten boroughs look quite tame by comparison.
Democracy can be a bit of a farce at times.

After BJ was declared the new leader of the Tory party Corbyn made a press statement........

He shocked the world by calling for a general election!

It was the first time he had called for one that day :)


Now, on a bit of a tangent, he also said that BJ had been elected by a minority so didn’t have a mandate.

Does anyone have the time or patience to work out the difference in registered voters who voted for Corbyn or BJ?

The answer would not only depend on the amount of votes each person got from their own party, but how young a person would have to be to join that party.

As an example, if 25% of the voters for either candidate was 16 or 17 that wouldn’t translate to votes at a GE. Could party members also be in other countries and have voted for a leader, but not able to vote in a UK GE.

He also said that he would put in motion a vote of no confidence in BJ when there was enough disaffected Tories to make it happen. On the other hand JMc contradicted JC this morning too saying it was pointless until you were certain you would win.

Lots of tweets by Labour MPs about BJ first speech funnily enough they all use the same word like after dinner speaker you could almost think that they have had an email on what to say from central office.

Since the "pay £3 and sign up to registered" wheeze, they will probably be the same people.

Bearing in mind that some people joined up and paid purely to vote for Corbyn, but DONT vote labour at a GE they won’t all be the same people.

There are many posters within ARRSE who joined and voted for Corbyn purely in a bid to make Labour unelectable at a GE.

Much is being made that Corbyn has seen off 3 Tory MPs, it’s nothing of the sort. The Tory’s have changed leader 3 times during his tenure, he has had no impact on that decision, it’s been internal infighting over Brexit. He in fact has failed to capitalise during times of massive Tory upheaval and weakness. Says it all really.

Three Tory PMs and he still can't unseat them and get in to No 10 :D

What’s your issue.
Posters mentioned joining and voting for Corbyn quite openly.
It’s all here for you to see. :)
 
"Jeremy Corbyn has said Boris Johnson will be unable to honour his commitment to deliver Brexit by the end of October."


That's all right Jeremy no need to panic - if it turns out not to be possible - he can simply point out it was only an aspiration and shrug it off
