Today in Labourland:

 

Rebecca Long Bailey makes a long winded speech about Palestine, as well as going on about how she loves Corbyn.

 

Lisa Nandy wants to abolish monarchy yet see Meghan Markle as Queen.

 

Dawn Butler says babies are born 'without sex'.

 

Thank God Kier Stamer has kept his mouth shut.  If he wins the leadership contest he really needs to do some sackings, or tell his MPs to shut up.

Born without sex! She misspoke surely?!

Starmer said he would 'trim' the Royals down.  With that sort of comment, even I might consider voting for him at a future date.

That made me smile. Brought back visions of my da. I can still hear him when he went off on one. I can almost quote him word for word. It's funny what you remember of your parents. 

We talked politics one day, must have been about 1972 or 73, and he said "The problem with this country is we never had our revolution. The French had one, the Americans had one, the Russians had many. We never did...". 

I thought in '76 when the Pistols were putting the country to rights we might finally have a chance at storming the palace gates. But no. It all fizzled out, alas.

Starmer could of course back up his statement; handing his Knighthood back would be a start.

The conversation was in terms of England ridding itself of the monarchy. That didn't happen.

Yes we did. Then we got it back. (Tho 1688 was the glorious revolution which was something different)

And talking sense.  If it weren't for how he acted towards the end of his time in office I'd almost like the man again.

Lisa Nandy certainly doesn't like Blair or his, as was, New Labour philosophy. 

 

She said so on tv this morning.

I can't believe she actually thinks this:

 

Quote

 Lisa Nandy is now arguing that male rapists who identify as women should be put in women’s prisons. 

 

At a Hustings, Lisa Nandy said that the child rapist Christopher Worton, who raped a teenage girl five times, but has since self-identified as a woman, should

 

a) have his crimes recorded as commited by a woman &

b) be housed in a women's prison

Someone PLEASE buy the Labour party this book, because as each day goes by they're alienating someone else.

I wonder how much of this is true:

 

Quote

These people are funding Lisa Nandy’s leadership campaign:
 

Eric Salama - CEO of Kantar, a consultancy whose clients include Coca-Cola and Unilever

Tom Shutes - millionaire property developer

Jason Stockwood - venture capitalist

Mark Glover - CEO for fossil fuel lobbying firm
