It seems rich to whine about moderates when they do not back this. I guess it shows that the moderates, not the Tories, are the real enemy of the Corbynite left.
It’s even richer to complain about moderates when the ‘true socialist’ left candidate failed miserably and allowed the Tory majority which enabled this. But, of course, that was everyone else’s fault (it always is), despite the Corbyn team leading the 2019 election strategy.October 23, 2020 at 9:37 am #196424
Many on here, myself included, probably want the same sort of government as Fansy does. Many also fully recognise nowhere near a majority of the public will ever again vote one in. Be happy to be in perpetual opposition, or change, simple as.October 23, 2020 at 10:33 am #196429
Strange times TW. I wouldn’t count anything out.
The only way we’ll get through the winter is if the government continue to use socialist measures to help out those in need.
Seeing the wicked witch in the OP reminds me of her “U-turn if you want to” speech. Boris & Co have made so many they’re positively revolving!October 23, 2020 at 12:04 pm #196437
My response was to point out that since 1945 only 3 Labour leaders have won a general election compared to 9 Tory leaders.
I also want to have the type of Government that Fansy wants, but my second and more realistic choice is a Labour government led by a leader who has some chance of winning or at least forming a coalition that can change the voting system that clearly favours Tory rule.
Labour will have a reduced chance of winning if supporters and members think that Starmer is the enemy and not the Tories. But then some members are clearly happier to be in opposition than in power!October 23, 2020 at 7:44 pm #196466

Has Robert Peston joined the thread?October 23, 2020 at 8:01 pm #196467
In response to the OP, it’s like a far left take on Bucksiron. It’s nonsensical to blame moderate Labour MPs for a decision in Parliament on free school meals when they brought in the motion and all, as far as I know, voted for it. It’s like someone putting the blame on their frequent house break-ins on the person they bought the house off who sold it with a broken fence which the new owner failed to fix.October 23, 2020 at 8:38 pm #196468Lord KitchenerParticipantOffline

I know this will be met with sarcastic scoffing from the usual suspects. The same people who laughed when I said I could see Trump and Johnson leading the US and UK at the same time.
That was not wishful thinking (well not as far as Boris was concerned). But this is.
Some time in the next six to eight years, our Nige (Farage) will make it into number ten.
I’m so going to love that. 😊October 23, 2020 at 10:39 pm #196470
‘I know this will be met with sarcastic scoffing from the usual suspects. The same people who laughed when I said I could see Trump and Johnson leading the US and UK at the same time.’
Not the people on this forum. Fact. And I’d wager those ‘usual suspects’ you refer to could totally see that happening. Do you have any of your own phrases or just borrow them from Bucksiron?October 23, 2020 at 10:42 pm #196472
Farage can’t even get elected as an MP so your last point is baseless.October 23, 2020 at 10:59 pm #196473
“Some time in the next six to eight years, our Nige (Farage) will make it into number ten”.
That would be Kermit who has tried and failed 7 times to even become an MP.October 24, 2020 at 11:49 am #196489

In the Twat of the Year contest!
Actually I think he’ll be placed higher.October 25, 2020 at 11:13 am #196561

Awaywego said he wasn’t posting on this side again, unlike ‘some’ he’s kept to his word.October 26, 2020 at 5:27 pm #196661
