Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

Recommended Posts

Well, have they actually said anything of note that marks them out as a future government?

 

The party speech was full of nothing. Nothing new, nothing different, nothing not offered to others leaders.

 

Tom Watson is very, very quiet. That leaves the benign Corbyn and the clueless McDonnell, plus all their baggage, to lead them to victory.

 

Labour has consigned itself to being nothing more than a protest party.

It's Lord Adonis.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Adonis has not left the Labour party, just temporarily resigned the whip to take up a government role.

Tom Watson is conspicuous by his absence. Where is Corbyn lately? Has anyone seen them together or heard anything from them?

Corbyn led a rally in Manchester on Monday night, it's estimated there were 8000 people there.

And 'people' were complaining that he was trying to take publicity from the Tories.  So he's keeping his head down while being a publicity whore...

This is why Corbyn will never be elected as PM.

After decades as a beckbench nobody all he knows how to do is protest, he just doesn't know how to be a proper opposition leader. After the labour conference he should be concentrating on following up his rhetoric with viable policies instead of jumping back on his socialist soap box.


This is captain Juncker speaking. The EU gravy train is about to enter Brussels, so will all Brits please exit at the next stop

After less than a month you can categorically state this can you?  No hope for Sam Burgess learning RU then.

A rally is not necessarily a protest though is it?

He was a guest speaker at a trade union funded event. Alongside such political heavyweights as Owen Jones...

 

The Tories are laughing all the way to 2020.

Corbyn seems to be an essentially decent individual.

 

I was pleased to see him telling Labour Party members to refrain from the abusive behaviour we saw from the demonstrators in Manchester.

 

If the Labour Party presents itself as a hate-group I'm afraid it won't get anywhere. It needs to distance itself from some of the wilder elements on the left and to stop branding as Tories those of its own MPs who want to see it as a credible opposition and potential government rather than a mere protest party.

Indeed. I think this article in the Guardian ought to be compulsory reading for everyone connected to the Labour party: So you hate those Tories – but what comes next?

Do you have a crystal ball? Do you know this week's winning lottery numbers?

 

You don't need a crystal ball to know that the EU referendum is going to tear the Tory party apart, they cannot even agree on which 'No' group they're all going to campaign with.

I have no doubt that privately the whole of the Labour party loves the Tories having it stuck to them irrespective of the manner in which it is done.

AOL run a 'Poll of the day', today it is

 

If there was a general election  tomorrow, which party would you vote for?

 

It shows

Conservative 41%

Ukip 26%

Labour 21%

Lib Dem 4%

Others 8%

 

Total Voters 17,593

 

Is this good news for Labour or not, bearing in mind the bashing Jezza has taken in the media recently.

Remind us again what Corbyn's position is on this. After decades of anti EU campaigning he becomes labour leader and suddenly says he voting for the 'In' campaign.

 

Labour will be just as torn on the referendum as the Tories will, even their biggest private donor John Mills has today said he is supporting the 'Vote Leave' group which is made up of Tory, Labour & LibDem MP's & party members.

Even allowing for the usual inaccuracies thats pretty dismal reading for Labour. It indicates they've lost over a 1/3rd of their support since the general election

That's an outlier compared to the recent ones on UK Polling Report.
