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

I was under the impression that you cannot get a job in public service or have a military career if you do not speak French? lessons are free though.
Correct and for promotions you need to pass language tests.

I am beginning to think we will see Corbyn as leader again, Stammer has failed to make any in roads to the Tory lead, in fact seeing it rise, they are hamstrung over the Covid Issue, the far left are stiring trouble and Labours response to the budget is either grudging approval, U Turns or the Tories nicked out ideas.

We have several on going court cases over anti-semitisim, the Unite fraud fiasco and cuts to funding and the fact that Corbyn is a member of Labour but not a Labour MP.

If its not Corbyn one of his minions, long may it continue.

Labour (Westminster) is redundant as a left of centre party. Rishi and Boris have enacted so many of their policies, what is the point of Labour? Under the Corbyn purges they forced out their best MPs. Scottish Labour is another matter as they have replaced Leonard, the hapless Corbynite with Anwar, a more intelligent moderate.

Sir...but Tony Blair started it! "New" Labour stole a lot of the centralist ideaologies (not that I give a square continental feck), so it's only fair that the "right wing" steal some of their own idealogies back. Corbyn did them a favour and got rid of the more centralist Labourites.

Blair is still hovering awaiting his chance?
 
I can’t see Corbyn or one of his acolytes getting the top job in the Labour Party as it currently stands.

They might have support from Momentum and other extreme groups, but recent history has shown that the uk population doesn’t want a hard line socialist government, he couldn’t even beat Theresa May.

But the population doesn't vote on who gets to become leader of the Labour Party (nor any other party), and LP members don't seem to consider how things might go in a GE, they only care about getting a leader with the right Marxist credentials for them. So I can see there being a more hard line Marxist leader in a future power struggle within the Party. There is a changing of the guard taking place in the background at the moment, the remaining months of 2021 will be telling in what the outcome might be.

The Labour party is fragmented at the moment, the far left and unions, the centre left Starmerites, and the remains of New Labour who want a return to Blairite policies.

The unions want us back in 1973, Starmer is a Labour traditionalist and the Blairites are awaiting a second coming.

In other words, a right fustercluck.
