New Labour Leadership

I had a brief glance at the BBC's Daily Hate (Morning Edition) on BBC1, and the topic de jour was about Rebecca Long-Bailey's knifing in the front from SKS. Two Left-Wing voices from the Labour Party and ancils were allowed to come on Radio 4 and say what a bad thing it was, (and were referred to in the piece with a caption stating who they were as if anyone really gives a shit), one of them being the despicable slime that founded Momentum, and only one sticking up for the decision.

Bias.
Did the hear the piece around 0750 where Rowlatt (I think) started the conversation with Margaret Hodge 'Was Keir Starmer right to sack Rebecca Long-Bailey?'

He then proceeded to question why she went, quoted Jon Lansman, then effectively argued with Hodge that is was unnecessary.

Interesting

The way I read Laura Kuensberg’s article, she’s mighty pissed off by Wrong Daily’s sacking:

She should be reporting, not opining.

The late Brian Redhead of the Today Programme when it was excellent used to be fiercely guarded about his audience not being able to tell his political opinions from his news reports.


A lesson Laura and her chums Emily, Huw and Co have forgotten, if they ever heard it.
 
Better to spend 900 Grand on a decent paint-job on the Voyager, than that 900 Grand going to boost the share price of BMW or Mercedes via some some corrupt African dictator.
 
Why does Starmer always have that half shocked half embarrassed looking face like he's been going round telling his mates he shagged the hottest girl in town, then she's come storming in the pub and called him a lying bastard in front of everyone?

The politics are quite simple..

4 years approx to the next election.
If Labour still look Corbynist by then they're phucked
Have your civil war now clean house, be as brutal as you have to be, make sure your enemies are not only dead but damned beyond recovery.
give the electorate three years to get over the spectacle and focus their cares on the government party.

It's like these political commentators never read Machiavelli
 
Keir Starmer has sacked Rebecca Long-Bailey. What happens now?


Equally, of course, the row could end up with Starmer strengthened: benefiting from the clear signal he has sent about his priorities, and a further divided Labour left, with some on the frontbenches, some clustering around Long-Bailey, and others looking to leadership from Richard Burgon, who several Campaign Group MPs think did a better job of outlining Corbynite principles in the deputy race than Long-Bailey did in the main leadership contest. The outcome of Starmer’s decision today is highly uncertain.
Oh please yes.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
 
It is not parliaments choice.
I couldn't think how to say that there is zero official recognition of anything this lot push out by anyone in authority of anything, irrespective that this is a modern Labour party infight.

What isn’t parliaments choice?

This is the only Petitions site that parliament has compelled itself to act upon once the required threshold has been met.

  1. The Petitions Committee reviews all petitions we publish. They select petitions of interest to find out more about the issues raised. They have the power to press for action from government or Parliament.
  2. At 10,000 signatures your petition on the UK Government and Parliament site gets a response from the government.
  3. At 100,000 signatures your petition on the UK Government and Parliament site will be considered for a debate in Parliament.
Edited to add:
Cheers @CrashTestDummy, the missing link is: How petitions work

He should have done a Corbyn. Where is magic grandad now, not heard anything since he was in hospital getting the splinters removed from his @rse.
 
Obliged for the clarity M’lud
M'learned friend was referring to the American profit making polling site and the poll to reinstate Wrong-Daily. It's not for parliament to decide, only for Sir Keir to continue to show us what a Billy Big Bollocks he is.

Did you miss out posting the link to the official government petition site?

Change.org isn't it.

You haven't seen her replacement yet!
Odds on for a woman of colour. Bonus points for a disability or gender issues.
So if Eddie Izzard blacks up, that's a dead cert...
