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

They don't need to be socialists as long as they are anti-western, anti-British and of course anti-American.
Hell of a trifecta, but you've missed out those pesky Jews. I suppose they go without saying.

I think that's a case of 'my friend's enemies are my enemies' etc. Plus all the bollox about Jews being rich capitalists who exploit the working classes. It's quite a toxic mix of bigotry.

Quite remarkable how stupid they are

 
Just a thought from left field. When the Marxist fenian granddad finally croaks, will there be triumphal crowing from the right of centre, in the manner of Thatcher's demise, or will there be dignified mumblings? A quiet 'good riddance' from the right (and not a few of the left) and moanings about a state funeral from the far left. Sliding him into a mailing tube and sinking it into readimix is good enough.

Probably his ashes will be scattered on Palestinian soil, but there may be divine intervention and a wind would blow them into Israel.
 
Could do what they did to Lenin and have him stuffed and on permanent display in a glass case somewhere appropriate (Snigger)

An aspect, over and over, is the level of vitriol from the Left when someone from the Centre/Centre-Right dies. It's almost entirely absent in the other direction.

Insert comment here about knowing the true meanings of words such as 'dignity' and 'respect', as distinct from just using them as slogans and Hatespeak.

I noticed this some years ago when I gave up watching TV and received all my news online from Free Republic and for a balanced view I then used to look up Democratic underground .
When Reagan died the outpouring of hate and vitriol from the left was unbelievable (hope he died screaming in agony was the most common). Never saw anything like it when the positions were reversed .
Binned the lefty website that day and had no time for the left wing ever since .

Noticed much the same thing in this country when Maggie popped her clogs. and the left still hate her with a passion .
In fact yesterday I noticed some clown on a local community website advertising a ' Lets egg the Maggie statue' at some uni. or other . No doubt as a prelude to tearing it down :confused:

It's not even up yet, and they've started whinging about it.

Must admit she's not my favorite person ( I had a job for life until her privatisation malarkey ) but what is wrong with these clowns ?
Easy. She handed Labour its arse in every election she stood as party leader.

They can hate her all they like but always remember this:

More people voted for her than voted for her Labour opposition.
 
(Standing by for the usual suspects to turn up with a graph that says, 'Not true.' Meh.)
The only opinions that count are the ones backed up by someone getting off their arses and voting. If you don't get a ticket, you can't win the raffle.

It will probably end up being Highgate Cemetery, resting place of Karl Marx and occasional hang out for Goths
