Paul Routledge: 'Turn off the hot air and go frack for gas, Jeremy'

Jeremy Corbyn ­promises a ban on fracking for gas if Labour wins power – there are votes here, but it’s a short-sighted, blinkered policy that would make the UK dependent on insecure imports

Since never, given that natural gas has always been a fossil fuel.

So we haven't had any days where electricity has been produced exclusively by non fossil fuels then. They aren't using coal, but they certainly are using gas.

 

To get back on topic, Labour seem to have lost ground in the polls again, with some polls showing Conservatives on a ten point lead.

It's often said that the left prefer fighting the last battle but Corbyn still seems to think its the 1980's.

Corbyn's response to coming fourth:

 

Quote

The Liberal Democrats won it after doing a deal with Plaid Cymru and the Greens.

Even if they hadn't done a deal and the vote was split three ways, Labour still wouldn't have won.  They'd had probably come 6th.

Yup, as usual ignore the problem, they still came behind the brexit party no matter what the Tories and lib dems did. Again no real brexit plan and the ships now sailed and long gone to catch up with

Read today that Birkenhead MP, Frank Field, who resigned the Lab Whip is intending to stand at the next election as the Birkenhead Social Justice Party candidate. 

 

Always thought he was a decent bloke, especially as he always appeared to be at odds with both Blair & Brown but obviously his brand of Lab is also at odds with Corbyn as well?

He was a decent MP,  mine for a while.   I always had time for him.  Sadly, because he chose to participate with the government on some poverty programme he was called a "Tory turncoat".


God forbid someone goes beyond party lines to do some good for the country.

 

Anyway, in other news, I see Corbyn is off to Whaley Bridge now that the danger is over.  Shame he was too busy in Scarborough to bother going when it mattered.

I’m confused. How does a politician going to the scene of a high profile news story, matter?
