Who said it was? :roll:

 

The fact that so many people have been mobilised

 

To use such new technology is awe-inspiring

 

And the actual point

 

Flavour of the month. All those people at the rallies will get bored and find something new to entertain them, particularly the young students who'll be back at college and university now.

I think a parliamentary party smaller than that of the SNP.

With another "moderate Labour" party doing likewise.

Why 'likewise'? The Co-operative Party might have 75% of current Labour MPs, by current reckoning.

So the Co-operative Party booms because it refuses to be co-operative with Corbyn and McDonnell?

Sure. Maybe as many as 80% if they all jump. But come the election, the radical former Labour voters will vote for Corbyn's lot and the moderate former Labour voters will vote for the other lot and with FPTP that will cost both parties a lot of seats.

Nothing but good news.

It's fine for us. But socialists (as much as I worry about them forming a government), surely deserve serious representation in parliament.

A lot of people believe in the government taking a bigger hand in the economy, and they deserve to be heard. This should not be sabotaged by a bunch of [words I'm not allowed to use on the forum] like Momentum.

I think the government should be smaller and less regulatory. I would not like it if a hypothetical collection of [more words I'm not allowed to use on the forum] anti-Momentum (on the other thread we agreed to called them "Inertia") created such a political mess that these views were not meaningfully represented in parliament.

But what will he taking over? A party split in two? A tiny party?

 

 

Or a party with 600,000 members. Corbyn's victory would have been even larger if 130,000 new members had been allowed to vote,eg 200 Bristol members suspended and their votes cancelled.

Would you rather be in a party with 600,000 members and 50 MPs or 100,000 members and 400 MPs?

Manchester United have a lot of supporters. Nobody expects them to form a government any time soon.

For reasons unknown McDonnell and Watson are saying they expect the Tories to call an early general election. What planet are they on?
