tris Would that be Simon (GET YER TITS OUT ) Danczuk the MP who went to a privatemeeting and then went on National TV to reveal all and slag Jeremy off ??Such is loyalty in the Blairrite Camp.....Camp would be a bit exaggeratedmaybe rump fag end or some such salutation..lol
LOL.I see the noble lord Mandelson has told them that they can't just get rid of him, no matter how much they want to. They have to try to persuade the public first, then they can make a move on him.Nice to see Peter's democratic tradition is alive and well and living in the House of Lords.
People in glass houses.......ring any bells, Simon?
Controversy seems to follow this guy around, Jim.
TrisThere is a part of me that wants them to bring him down because the members will take a revenge on that party that you would not believe, selection would get very interesting for the next election. I watched This Week last night and listening to Alan Johnson they will fight him all the way but if the party vote through a policy they will support it, talk about have your cake and eat it. The Labour PLP are in the main scumbags, milk the system until there is nothing left. If they had any balls they would resign and let the members elect real Labour MPs. But there is this other side of me that wants to see Jeremy Corbyn succeed as this country badly needs change and as long as we are stuck in this awful union I would rather have Corbyn than Cameron / Osbourne and the devil IDS any day. If the Johnsons of the world can't see that they should go do one.Bruce
While we are stuck in this union, Bruce, I'd like to see the most decent person as the prime minister, appoint decent people to speak up for people who, at the moment get absolutely nothing.To be honest I'm not really interested in the politics of it, I'm just so distraught for the folk who are having to live through financial woes caused by the Tories, but with the compliance, or tacit compliance of New Labour.I feel particularly for people in England, because the Welsh and the Scots have some sort of barrier between them and the Tories.I'm inclined to take the view that, given the magnitude of his win, New labour MPs have a duty to follow and support him, or to resign and stand again as New Labour, or Tory, or Independents.
Seems that as we thought they think a) there is no internet and b) everyone has short memories.Aye Labour, some gang they have there and if you are not in the right bit they will endeavour to bring you down. Have you noticed that they are not very strong on Democracy either?
First thing that struck we was he lacked coherence; second that he didn't reckon that the 60% vote was worth a fig. He probably thinks that 17 % is more than 59.5%.Democracy? What's that then
So let me see if I have this right here.Mr "D" says that if the real members of the Labour party, NOT the politicians, vote in enough numbers for Jeremy Corbyn and he wins then the politicians will do whatever they can to oust him. Yet he is now saying that there is some sort of witch hunt on within the Labour party that will kick out politicians like him.I'm guessing the meaning of the word IRONY is totally lost on people like dear old Mr "D."
I think he has the notion that irony is something you do to shirts.
Slightly off topic, but I am fkn raging.The short version is that HMRC have sent an overpayment demand for tax credits to a relative. Without going into specific details, the amount - for a single year - amounts to over half the gross income of a part-time, lowly paid person who is undergoing treatment for a life threatening disease.Labour created this holy shambles, and the Tories are screwing the nut tighter.Corbyn is not going to win an election, according to the media. He truly believes in fair play, scrapping nukes and putting the people first. I hope to hell he forms a pact with the SNP and cause merry hell at Westminster. If things keep going the way they are, then the Tories might just get toppled. Christ I'd even vote Labour if it will help (although not in the Scottish elections!).zog
Voting Labour wouldn't help in Westminster elections, as history and arithmetic shows.However, I agree with the sentiment in your post.
Hi Zog ...truly sorry to hear about the IR and their demands.I trust you will sort it out for the person. If you don't get any joy from the tax people (and having been there a few years ago, I suspect that you won't) then don't hesitate to contact your MP.What an inhuman country we live in.Best of luck. We're all behind you.
