People who get personal with any further attacks in the thread will be suspended. As will any individuals using wording like Smarmer instead of Starmer etc.

Finally some good news for Labour:

 

YouGov poll puts Labour in lead as Tory support drops five points

It's terrible news! When ever Labour have been ahead in the polls they have been trounced in general elections.

Apart from when Blair was leader.

Which, if you listen to many alleged Labour supporters and a not small number of their MPs and councillors, is even more terrible news.

It was a rather amusing performance from Angela Rayner at PMQ yesterday. She certainly has a better scriptwriter than Barrister Boy Starmer.  I wouldn't go as far as to say it's a class act using the slang word quid when referring to English pounds in the sacred Westminster Parliament.  However, she did manage to refrain from calling any of the MPs present "scum" and was a little less fisher wife than expected.

You should see her on Twitter, she's an embarrassment with the words she uses or what she posts.  Every other post she makes is about how someone should be sacked or resign. 

 

I can't wait until Labour are in power again (I just hope live that long!) and she inevitably screws up.  All those posts are going to bite her squarely in her behind.

 

Can't believe she was attacking him on the price of his holiday. Does no one else, including Labour MPs never go on holidays? I don't understand this line of attack. Is she saying that no one should be allowed expensive holidays if some can't afford them?

 

Ah well, at least she's got her £249 taxpayer-funded Airpods.

I'm surprised she survived Starmer's cull of the left.

But then he's going to need a convenient scapegoat at some point, so I expect she's going to come in handy.

Because of the ludicrous way the Labour party currently operates the Labour party leader can't sack the deputy leader.  The problem for Starmer is his deputy got more laughs at PMQ's than he does which is the aim of the opposition party in the Punch and Judy style modern day politics.

errr, you do know Starmer has no power to remove or appoint the deputy leader so there is no "survive" there

Brilliant.

 

Labour call for the minimum wage to be £10ph then pay workers at the party conference £9.75ph.

 

Labour call for a law to ensure the protection of cash as going cashless has unequal affects of different communities, then makes the party conference a cashless event.

First point, £9.75 is still more than the minimum wage, and close to the £10ph which is not yet in place.

Second point: if this is true and it applies to all opportunities to pay by cash at conference, then it does smack of hypocricy, but may be something to do with security.
