New Labour Leadership

Long-Bailey at education? This is presumably Starmer's demonstration of possession of a sense of humour...

We'll be treated to long whinges about private schools, Oxbridge elitism and racism, etc, etc (which are shown to in fact put off applicants from deprived and/or BAME backgrounds - 'we can't offer places to BAME pupils if they don't apply in the first place because people keep telling them they'll hate it here!' as one admissions tutor lamented not so long ago)

I wonder if we will have Dame Diane Abbottomus after the Queen's Birthday Honours list comes out?
Have to be a Damehood, as it would be an act of the most stunning hypocrisy for Abbott to accept a peerage.



So where d'you think she'll choose as the location for her title? Baroness Abbott of Stoke Newington?
 
David Lammy, Shadow Justice Secretary

Ed Miliband, Shadow Business, Energy and Industrial Secretary

Emily Thornberry, Shadow International Trade Secretary

Yes really!

Three gopping errors there
Wrong Daily as well.

Will be submitting my resignation shortly. My work here is done.
Yes, my resignation in the post now & I voted for Ms Long Bailey.
Ms LB can now voice her Far Left views from the backbenches until the next election at the earliest!

I didn't expect either of them in the Shadow Cabinet; the past four+ years they have shown themselves to be weak, frightened people scared to voice anything against the Great One in case they got deselected. Party stance is immaterial compared to having a constituency.

I for one won't miss them. Again, I would not be in the least surprised if they both went to the Lords at the first appropriate point.

RLB is in the Shadow Cabinet - Edumakashun.
 
Lammy as SoS Justice. What could possibly go wrong?

One assumes possession of a salaried job will become a capital offence (unless you're BAME obvs) and conviction for stabby/shouty-related offences will be subject to a get out of jail free card mitigation of "its their culture, innit".

Identity politics alive and well and will need to be hammered hard by the Tories once this pandemic is over.

Yvette will be too busy running her Syrian refugee B&B with hubby Ed.

You may have taken me just a tad too seriously my mate.
I feel they may have been asked but declined the too lowly positions on offer.
