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

Isn't she the lass, aged about 4, who declared her MP's salary was too much but she would live on the wages her constituents were likely to take home... then decided they'd take home ~£35,000?
I mean on one hand, well done to her for donating the excess £40,000. On the other, It's not quite what most of her constituents are taking home, and there's a slight virtue signalling going on. It's a bit of a conundrum really.
She did say she would only take 35k, Im not sure if she did only take 35k.

It just goes to show that the public get the leaders they deserve. We tear down a leader who changes direction despite new information being known to them, so we get a leader who persists with the wrong course of action no matter what.

There is little to suggest lockdowns actually work, and even the WHO and SAGE have argued against them being the primary tool for stopping the spread of covid. Yet we carryon doing the same things that probably didn't work last time.
Yet the Guardian, just a wee while ago was complaining that the government were ignoring SAGE advice by not locking down!

I just wish you Boris Grrr types would get some consistency in your moaning.
 
Corbyn and chums have finally been hoist by the own petard. For years they have actively promoted an industry that operates off witch-hunts and guilty until proven guilty process.

Criticise a black person? Then you are a racist, no need to look at what was said just go straight to guilty. Criticise Islam or an Islamic nation? Then you are an Islamophobe, again there is no need to look any further, you are guilty.

Well then Jezza, you criticise Israel and British Jews then you ARE a bigoted anti-Semite, by you own world view you cannot be innocent whatever was actually said or meant. There is no need for a trial by jury, even OCs orders were more balanced than how you have conducted such affairs so I say "march the guilty bastard in"

It looks like Bugsy has had a word, she has jumped on her reversocycle


In a previous post she was showing solidarity with the Jews, now she is showing solidarity with Corbyn.
She has a lot of solidarity.

I normally dont resort to the obvious and sexual, however she has a muff too tuff, and she flip flops from the Gary glitter to pork swords off every Muslim who takes up the back pack in the name of a magic deity.
 
It is like a sickness with the far left of Labour/ Momentum. They could just focus on improving the lot of the British lower classes but instead can't stop talking about Zionists / Jews even when it keeps getting them in trouble. It really just emphasizes what they actually are, left wing ideologues with out a care for those that were once their core supporters, those that they were founded to represent. Labour needs a root and branch review of what it is actually for and how it wishes to achieve this.

I have wondered what our Northern cousins make of the party that claim to be their guardian angels banging on about Palestine? I doubt they view the purpose of Labour is to form a government and spend their time and our money on a dusty and distant desert land as the priority over jobs, hospitals, schools etc. for the North?

When Labour luvvies tip up on those doorsteps do they get busy waving Palestinian flags or do they flip to how much they feel the pain of the locals, you know, the kind of transparent BS that saw them get a hammering last time.

Well being a Northern Monkey (ooook, yes I do Librarian Walting as a passtime) I can tell you what happened when some Labour activists knocked on my door last year prior to the election, they didn't appreciate the laughter and buggered off fairly fast.

It was the Labour government that bugged out of Palestine in 1948 leaving over 800 of our dead behind. Seem to remember that uncontrolled immigration was a bit of a problem there. Up to early 1960's Labour loved Israel which they saw as the nearest thing to utopian socialism on this earth.

I live in North Yorkshire, which is just above the Midlands, not accepted but tolerated, in the 5 years not once have I heard the mention of Palestine. Last night I went to a meeting, about nothing to do with politics 7 off us and two raised Corbyn and were quite happy with what happened, it was a laugh and handed another term to the Tories.

Now this is North Yorkshire and Labour are hated, Our Tory MP who is a ****** got over 50% last election, Labour have a mountain to climb. Last I looked still in the lead.
 
The footballer is just a pawn in the game. He is being used by those who are on a constant Boris Grrrr.
I think this is more to put his foot down and not put himself in the position of Government policy being dictated by Rashford or any other footballer. Otherwise every other sports, entertainment 'personality' will be dictating to the Government.

. . .in that case, France, Belgium, Spain, Germany (from Monday), etc, all of whom are currently (or will shortly) in varying increased states of lockdown/fire break/reset/playing hide and go seek (other buzzy names available).

Thus 'we' are not alone and are all trying to adhere to varying forms of the same advice.

Do we know the answer? You'd have thought that someone in Opp North (where its grim) where she comes from would have taken note.
She still had her voluntary care home carer job to fall back on.....oh er.

Holding post for Bogsy to say a Kibbutz wasn't real socialism

It’s rather telling that people like my own father who was in Palestine pre pull out, and was targeted along with other Brit servicemen never said a bad word against any Jewish person in the U.K.
Corbyn on the other hand, who wasn’t there, didnt lose any friends and wasn’t ever a target...........

Just taking Jonathan Pie's observations a stage further:

 
I have wondered what our Northern cousins make of the party . . .
I think what they made of it was expressed in spades at the Dec 19 General Election.
