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

Something to cheer you nazi, brown shirt wearing fascists on a wintery Sunday morning:


How the interviewers don't keel over laughing can only be because they agree with their new communist masters to be.
Oh deary, deary me! Lenin McCluskey, the Comical Ali of the Labour Party.
 
I see Unite have just backed LonghyphenBailey as their choice of leader (she still probably has no chance) but more excitingly they have also backed the Father Dougal of the Labour Party as deputy- none other than Burgon.

Please please let him win....... it would pure comedy gold.

Len McCluskey has told Labour moderates they should quit the party now if they are not prepared to show loyalty to Rebecca Long-Bailey, the hard-Left favourite to succeed Jeremy Corbyn.

The Unite general secretary said that MPs who have threatened to leave Labour if the shadow business secretary is elected would be “better to clear out now”.

He also dismissed suggestions that Unite, Labour’s biggest backer, would have its influence reined in under a new leader, adding that those hoping for a change at the top were “deluding themselves”.

It comes after the Sun on Sunday reported that Ms Long-Bailey, who has been endorsed by Unite, faces an exodus of moderate Labour MPs if she wins the leadership contest.

The self delusion of the man who thinks he's the kingmaker continues.

Surely they can only split now??

They've been split for years, they just haven't acknowledged it.

Lets be honest here, any moderate Labour MP that does as they've been told and quits misses out on their pension plus the parachute payment they would get if they lost their seats, so that's absolutely not going to happen in the real world is it Mr McCluskey?

About the best McCluskey can hope for is the government changes the rules on crossing the floor by bringing into law that a bye election must be held.

It's about time the moderate members of Unite got some balls and left the union. Instead of not paying the political fee! My guess is that some of their fees still end up with silly party

I do know someone who left Unite because they were to extreme. This was about 10 years ago, and the friend in question is an avowed communist. Make of that what you will.

Thornbury, one of the brighter ones doing her stand up act again.

Well she's pissed off most genuine Labour supporters do needs a new target.
 
RL-B Wants to abolish the HoL because they are an unelected by the people but is happy to stay in the EU which has unelected people in charge. You just can't educate stoopid can you?
If you use an 8" nail and a BFO hammer you might, but in that creature's case you would be hard pushed where to apply the nail.
 
Thornbury, one of the brighter ones doing her stand up act again.

If this is genuine then its shockingly divisive. Not sure what she thought she was doing.
 
See that bold text there? That is your schoolboy error. Emily Thornberry and thought are two concepts that may be mutually exclusive.
I was dubious about the clip because it seemed cut off, so taken out of context perhaps.

Oh, she thinks alright. The problem is the lack of quality gateway between her thinking and her talking.
