What now the Labour Party?

Or this one?

It's been a fun weekend here in Bolsover. Everyone I've spoken to has the same air of bemusement. Nobody is surprised at the outcome.

The Pits closed 30 years ago. What's more, the generation of the strikes was always motivated by a loss of way of life more than a political belief, and that way of life is long gone.

Fact is, the politics round here has been Attleeist, not Trotskyist, for the last hundred years and that's unlikely to change.

An Anti-Establishment Metro-Socialist, like Corbyn was always going to be doomed to failure outside the Bohemian Bubble. It's something anyone actually from round here could have told them, but as always, the hard-left really don't understand the people they claim to represent.

So from her upbringing she's middle class bordering on bourgeois middle class. So much for her claims to be working class.

Poor cadre comrade!

ETA so by her own beliefs her and her parents would be up against the wall in the purges.

She also claimed to be unable to afford a mortgage, even on an MPs salary, due to her student debt. And then bought a £450,000 pad a few months later.

What makes this even more delicious is she lost her seat on the local council to a tory before she became an MP so it's the 2nd time the tories have put her on the dole :D
 
he really was ‘To the Manor born’

his parents changed the name of their country pile from Yew Tree Manor to Yew Tree House to burnish their proletariat credentials
Yew Tree being a rather unfortunate name for a house these days, you'd think they'd have changed the name a bit more

As the DM stated though - they are borrowed votes. I reckon something as simple as whether Bolsover gets a manned police station the next few years could determine whether Labour or Con get their next vote.

Boris has to be very careful and not take anything for granted...that's what labour and libs did...to their peril.

ah yes, but Jezza was going to bring back their industrial past.....

the clueless biff actually thinks there are millions of midland and northern voters desperate to see the old rust belt industries that died out 30 years ago brought back and head back down the mines.
 
Don't confuse a brief period of his orbit crossing that of Arrse with redemption.

He's a ****. Always will be.
Any excuse.

Fundamental common mis-belief about miners is that politics was their primary motovation.
It wasn't, preservation of their well paid jobs was.
Miners were very well paid and liked being so.
Socialist so long as the pay packet was well stuffed. Same with steel workers and ship builders

Here we are 35 years after the miners strike and prosperity is slowly returning to those areas.
It isn't the late 80's anymore.
As my old AEU shop steward used to say in the steelworks "am a capitalist son, am in this for the money"
