Labour Live 2018 -- A complete success?

Thing is down the pub, you risk hearing opinions you don't hold and maybe you might adjust your opinions a bit.

Much safer to simply stay in the same tribe, and hear things you agree with?
Think I'd rather live dangerously and at least run the risk of getting a decent pint for under a fiver.

Clean Bandit have sold over 13,000,000 singles and had two of the biggest songs in recent years including a Christmas Number 1.

You must be painfully, painfully old.
Nope still no wiser!
 
You must have been watching another speech

Is it me or does it look like some of that crowd have their right arms, tilting upwards keeping the arm straight, just like fans of a certain socialist movement in 1920-45 Germany.
 
I found the wonderful George Orwell except from Animal Farm here (I sh!t you not):
Animal Farm: A Fairy Story by George Orwell (Chapter 10)

Edited for clarity: on the marxist.org website.

Somehow it seemed as though the farm had grown richer without making the animals themselves any richer–except, of course, for the pigs and the dogs. Perhaps this was partly because there were so many pigs and so many dogs. It was not that these creatures did not work, after their fashion. There was, as Squealer was never tired of explaining, endless work in the supervision and organisation of the farm. Much of this work was of a kind that the other animals were too ignorant to understand. For example, Squealer told them that the pigs had to expend enormous labours every day upon mysterious things called "files," "reports," "minutes," and "memoranda." These were large sheets of paper which had to be closely covered with writing, and as soon as they were so covered, they were burnt in the furnace. This was of the highest importance for the welfare of the farm, Squealer said. But still, neither pigs nor dogs produced any food by their own labour; and there were very many of them, and their appetites were always good.

As for the others, their life, so far as they knew, was as it had always been. They were generally hungry, they slept on straw, they drank from the pool, they laboured in the fields; in winter they were troubled by the cold, and in summer by the flies. Sometimes the older ones among them racked their dim memories and tried to determine whether in the early days of the Rebellion, when Jones's expulsion was still recent, things had been better or worse than now. They could not remember. There was nothing with which they could compare their present lives: they had nothing to go upon except Squealer's lists of figures, which invariably demonstrated that everything was getting better and better. The animals found the problem insoluble; in any case, they had little time for speculating on such things now. Only old Benjamin professed to remember every detail of his long life and to know that things never had been, nor ever could be much better or much worse–hunger, hardship, and disappointment being, so he said, the unalterable law of life.

And yet the animals never gave up hope. More, they never lost, even for an instant, their sense of honour and privilege in being members of Animal Farm. They were still the only farm in the whole county–in all England!–owned and operated by animals. Not one of them, not even the youngest, not even the newcomers who had been brought from farms ten or twenty miles away, ever ceased to marvel at that.

Make your own comparisons. Me I'm with Pete Townsend: "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss".

When pressed, she changed that to twelfty one carilion, finally settling on 1100 but got very angry that everybody was preoccupied by her incompetence and did not want to discuss her party organisation skills.
Come on, what did she really say? You have not mentioned the Race Card once there so I don't believe that came from DA.
 
Nothing about reducing waste and mismanagement in the NHS, no lets just chuck more money at it and hope the problems go away
Ah, the good ol' Blair Model...?
 
That's standard Labour economic policy isn't it...?
The Mirror tells me that part of his speech contained this;
"Mr Corbyn said his message for the Tories was: ‘You crept back into office a year ago. You started bunging money around in order to stay in office. ‘For goodness sake, give up, move on, move over and let the people take over.’

No, Corbyn failed to win the election, even despite the Tories alienating their core voters and running an election campaign that made the Monster Raving Loony Party look serious.

Having missed an open goal, he's now asking them to.....just let him be PM?

Crept back into office? I was under the impression that they got the most votes in a General Election?

It depends on your mathematics. Whilst we normally count in Base 10, there is a very niche school of esoteric mathematics that counts in Base Eleventy using only irrational numbers. When you apply this model, known as the ‘Abbott Transition’, it becomes clear that Labour did, in fact, win the last election by a factor of 5.86 x 10 to the power of eleventy.
