Jeremy Corbyn has the biggest mandate of any leader in Labour's history

 

A quarter of a million people voted for him last September

 

172 MPs tried to overturn that mandate

 

I think that we're going to see that their views have been rejected

What a total unexpected shock,not really.

 

Considering the desperate gerrymandering that's been going on

 

It could very well have been

That's the corpse of the Labour party you're dancing on there.

I ain't going to get into the who's insulting who argument, as Robin-H says, just ignore each other

 

But he seems to find my posts irresistible

 

It's like he's got a Solomon1 fetish or something :shocked:

 

Just look at him! Still following me around :loopy:

 

And what Robin says and what Robin does, are two different things

 

Needs to take his own medicine

Doesn't occur to you that you have this problem with almost everybody. Ever thought why that might be.

So I'm a little more persistent that others. Harder to wear down. Tough.

Any Labour members/supporters reading: Care to join us on the other Labour thread http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1482508.

I think you'll find a home for your ideas and values in either the SNP or Lib Dems. Or perhaps you'd like push for a new Labour party in which case you'll need a name. You'll probably find you have more influence on government policy in another party than with Momentum.

This would surely require a "Ministry of Peace"? Will there be a "Ministry of Love" and a "Ministry of Truth" as well? Think before you answer.

This is going to have me laughing for quite a while.

640,000 votes!! :wow:

 

Are you aware that the tories got 11,334,576 at the general election and it is unlikely any of the 640,000 votes that you mention were from that 11,334,576.

 

It might seem a minor point to the average momentum indoctrinated oaf, but it is quite important nevertheless. You see to win a general election corbin would need to hold on to the 9 million votes that labour took in 2015 and also take at least 2 million of the 11,334,576 that the tories got.

 

At the minute it seems that around 2 million of the 9 million who voted labour in 2015 do not intend to do so with corbin running things and it is pretty certain that very few of the 11,334,576 tory voters intend to vote for anyone other than the tories, and no amount of dancing bananas is going to alter that.

 

Infact I'm still unclear whether you are saying we should or shouldn't vote for the 172MPs who wouldn't back corbin, or for that matter the councillors who won't back him either. Go on give us a clue.

And around 20 folk each week shove leaflets for pizzas, tree surgery and double glazing through my letterbox, and a further dozen ring trying to sell PPI insurance claims or save me money on my heating bills, and I don't buy any of them and block the numbers..
