Interestingly I read an article in the Guardian in which someone from Labour basically said that Labour was changing its messaging, not because they wanted to win, but because they wanted an excuse for their failure.

When Labour loses, they want to avoid having to blame either the far-left policies or Corbyn. Corbyn was we know is too proud to fall on his sword and resign, and Labour, or at least the current Labour leadership, are also too proud to admit that nobody wants a far left government.

Which is not to say that I am excited about Boris Johnson getting his majority. As South Park says, you really have a choice between a turd sandwich and a douche.

I don't trust any of the Top 3 to become the next prime minister, quite honestly. Johnson lies about everything, Corbyn is honest but communist, Swinson is surprisingly dishonest and pretty aggressive.

Exciting news for @Chris_the_Brit, Rees Mogg is definitely still alive and has been seen in public for all of 5 minutes!

I wasn't worried about him not being alive. He's deliberately been taken off the airwaves due to that LBC interview (which I don't agree with BTW). People with an ounce of common sense knew what he was saying but clearly Tory high command thought it was too much of a risk.

You can also take a trip to North East Somerset? He's having a jolly time campaigning with his beautiful dogs:


I think you'd be more concerned that your hero, Sir Keir, is not going to be the next Labour leader given he's too much of a Blairite for many on the Labour left. Enjoy Rebecca Wrong-Daily ( :p ) or Laura "I'm not friends with any Tories" Pidcock. Absolute shambles!

My hero? Where have I said that?

I think anyone who makes any politician their "hero" is in urgent need of psychiatric help...
Its too late for any help if they have made a politician their hero.. they should just be dragged outside and shot to save the human race.

Chris thinks any politician who isn't his hero must, therefore, be your hero, Dave.

Hero of the loony left wing of the Democrat party
By the way, I see Dave's hero, Chukka Umanna,
not headed by their anti-Semitic, sandal-wearing Commie hero.
I see Dave's great Blairite hero is seat hopping and running away
Check their rather muted reaction around their hero, Justin "I'm so woke" Trudeau.
.begun under Dave's hero, Tony Blair..
I think you'd be more concerned that your hero, Sir Keir,
and so on and so forth
:rolleyes:

Wasn't Corbyn chosen by members of the Labour party?

Corbyn is honest but communist
Corbyn isn't a communist. He's only called that by some people because communist is a useful term for scaring a certain contingent of voters.

Yes. Your point? He also refused to resign after a no confidence vote in him succeeded.

Well he's a lot further left than most in the UK, and a lot further left than most in the Labour party. There is socialism and then there is socialism.

Well spotted, I think the only person in this thread who hero worships politicians is Chris.

Seems my bet on Tories holding Cities of London and Westminster is secure. Not sure Grant should be talking about "decent" people given his rather interesting personal life. Just another millionaire socialist telling the proles how to vote because they are too thick.

I also see he is campaigning to unseat IDS. Going to be so funny in 10 days time when these smug arses' tactical voting campaign ends in years. IDS FTW!

Fear and loathing as the quiet man of politics faces down Corbyn's Momentum mob: DAN HODGES visits the seat where hard left intimidation means Iain Duncan Smith needs police protection

Which parts are communist?
you expect someone to read through that novel length meaningless drivel?!?

that aside, the number of times they repeat the word manifesto should have anyone's commie-detector at least beeping, then there is this, which is taken directly from Karl Marx himself, and paraphrased to sound enlightened and "modern":
Work should provide a decent life for all, guaranteeing not just dignity and respect in the workplace, but also the income and leisure time to allow for a fulfilling life outside it
at least Marx didn't faff about with unnecessarily lengthy phrases to say the same:
to each according to his needs
or are you about to argue Marx is #NotRealCommunism ? :ROFL:
