The Labour Party. All discussion here please

Recommended Posts

The Labour Party failed for several reasons:

. Their wishy/washy policy on Brexit

. Jeremy Cornyn, alienating the traditional labour voter

. throwing money at it leftist policies without clear costings

. An electorate who are too young/have forgotten or forgiven the Thatcher years and brutal decimation of manufacturing

Your last statement is complete rubbish. The younger demographic overwhelmingly voted Labour.

Thanks to Corbyn, we now have a sexist, cheating, racist, liar in power for the next 10 years.

 

This was predicted and yet the labour party members did nothing about it - just harking back to the Glastonbury years.

 

What are they going to do now? Bitter infighting I guess.

 

Yet another positive move!!! NOT

Ridiculous post. So now you're blaming Corbyn for Boris Johnson being Boris Johnson.

 

How people conveniently forget or choose to ignore the incessant and continued poisonous daily propaganda pumped out by the billionaire owned Media against Jeremy Corbyn

 

I canvassed in my local constituency for Labour and the things that people said on the doorstep were taken straight from the Sun, Star, Mail, Express etc. eg. " why is Corbyn letting on these terrorists out of prison"  In fact if the CIA had organised it, it would have been a brilliant " black ops" operation. It certainly worked well at pumping the narrative into the populace.

Comment following the election result from Hilary Benn,  who is one of my favourite politicians. 

 

 

A comment his father Tony made sticks in my mind; just after Right-to-Buy was introduced, he said he felt depressed when knocking on the doors of ex-council houses when he saw the new owners had painted them a different colour from standard!

I grew up in a council house, can’t remember standard colored wallpaper.

Yes that's right it was fundamental to Tony Benn that all front doors were the same colour. He had a chapter in a book devoted to the subject

I've read it, that's where the quote originated.

If the gap between the filthy rich and the poor has done anything but grow wider in the next five years, I'll eat my hat.
