  1. Local Elections - 3rd May 2018

    If there was a Socialist Party standing I'd vote for them, but there isn't so I'll have to vote Labour.
  2. Those nice tories

    That's why the Tory press are giving her a kicking.
  3. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    Was that in today's " Daily Mail " ?
  4. Those nice tories

    I don't know what your problem is. This story is news and " The Guardian " is a newspaper. If you consider " The Guardian " to be in the gutter where does that leave the so called " popular " press ? In the sewer I would suggest.
  5. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    I know plenty of Labour people who bailed out during the Blair years, especially after he took us to war. " I didn't join the Labour Party to start a pointless war in the Middle East ". That's the jist of what I was told many, many times. Thousands must have left the party nationally. The party has only just recovered from that debacle. The greater labour movement is obviously Labour voters, members of other leftist and left leaning parties, a majority of trade unionists and many people like me. I consider myself a " freelance socialist ", there are plenty of leftists that find no party that fits the bill enough to join.

    So you've got two actual names to hang something on. Looks like I better take my jack boots and riding crop down to Oxfam before somebody names me. " Are you now or have you ever been --- " You know the rest.
  7. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    It's hard to address an issue were apart from Ken Livingstone nobody is naming any names and giving specific instances of real organised Labour Party anti Semitic abuse. These MP's quoting threats from random dickheads posting on social media aren't really providing anything concrete to tackle. Getting a brick thrown threw your window doesn't really tell me a lot. I dare say I could go on a Tory website and rant in a similar fashion, pretend I'm a Teresa May fan and creation a similar wave of emotion.
  8. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    I think they did more damage to the greater labour movement than good.
  9. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    That's his problem. He put his money on red and black came up.
  10. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    You obviously aren't aware of how much the national political agenda has been moved to the right over the past 35 years. It'd be easier for me to compile the very short list of left wing Labour MP's . Dennis Skinner, err, err. That's it.
  11. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    You said forming conspiracies and controlling the media, not me. You can't deny that there is a section of the Jewish population that jump whenever Israel gets kicked. I suppose I'll be in the anti-semitism dog house now.
  12. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    I can't get my head around this Anti-Semitism issue. I've never heard any Labour Party person say anything remotely anti-Semitic in my presence. To be honest the Jewish community just hasn't come up in conversation. They're in a massive minority were I live and tend to keep themselves to themselves. I do know one or two Jewish people but like lots of people they wear their religion very lightly. The cynic in me thinks - 1) it's a convenient stick for the disgruntled right wing to beat Corbyn with. 2) it's a pre-emptive strike by the Israeli supporting section of the Jewish community preparing us for the propaganda war when Israel starts throwing it's weight about again in the Middle East.
  13. Russia

    The " cheaper stuff " they manufacture works just as well as the stuff we make in the West. Sometimes it works better. I'm speaking with personal knowledge of Russian machinery here.
  14. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    It would be if it wasn't for the fact that the right wing MP's in the party are doing their level best to trash the party's standing with the public in the vain hope that a poor showing will enable them to start the " Remove Corbyn " campaign all over again.
  15. Those nice tories

    I will say this for Teresa May, she's got some neck. It's as though she's never been Home Secretary.
