    Good old Jess. Our very own Esther McVey.
    When asked to name her greatest achievement Thatcher replied: 'Tony Blair and New Labour.'

    Corbyn was nowhere near being PM, Brexit be damned. His most impressive achievement as Labour leader was still losing to Theresa May, for God's sake.

    Car crash of a campaign. Not remotely up to it.

    There's no way it isn't Starmer. The hard left is rapidly realising that they haven't got the support, and are getting a bit desperate...

    Labour Party chairman says Starmer should stand aside for Long-Bailey

    Lavery is such a fucking prick. That statement is going to have the completely opposite effect.
    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    Unite Union, McCluskey and Lavery backing Long Bailey. They are really putting together a dream team.

    What a shock. McCluskey backing the most left wing candidate in the field. He will be whimpering if Starmer wins.

    Not sure a left wing candidate is a bad thing if they assemble a credible team with realistic aspirations. Blairism is not necessarily a defined option.

    I think it is quite simple. While there is a bimbling fool in number ten you want the most polished dispatch box performer as leader of the opposition. And that is Starmer by an absolute mile.

    Noooooo. Wouldn't dispute he's got a few braincells but he has the charisma of a pavement pizza. He always looks like he wants to cry. Remove the toxics like Thornberry, Abbott, and anybody else that can't do interviews without crashing. Stop alienating people telling them they are privileged, treat all people the same and Long-Bailey is feisty enough to do a Thatcher. Rid the Labour Party of the candy floss Liberalism and engage.

    Problem is most people don't think or care about politics much. A lot of people I know who disliked Corbyn said they would happily vote for Keir Starmer. The reasons they disliked Corbyn were almost all made up (he's a terrorist lover) but their minds were made up. Feedback was similar when canvassing. Same with Starmer - most of them don't know or care why - they just like the look of him.

    I'm voting for him because he's made excellent noises about not throwing the baby out with the bathwater. He might be lying to hoover the lefty vote but I don't think that's the case.

    The narcissism of thinking that people will only care about that if he's the messenger. That's the problem.

    I’m at the leadership hustings in Nottingham and have managed to sit near some Momentum/RLB Fanboi’s.

    One of their friends just turned up late and greeted them with “Morning Comrades”

    Unfortunately there was no irony.

    'Comrade' has been commonly used in the Labour Party for decades...
    Cosy consensus makes for a boring forum.

    RLB is best priced 9/1. Seems it's Starmer's and we can have a credible opposition again. Shame we had to waste 4 1/2 years to get there

    Gorgeous calls this succinctly. It's back to establishment boys.

    Gorgeous - It’s back to the election-winning ways of Tony Blair for Labour. Mr Blair won three consecutive general elections albeit by promising, and delivering, the precise opposite of what a “labour” party is supposed to.

    at least when you show your annoyance at these political happenings i can be less annoyed about you pretending to be an anarchist.
    it is not that I have no past. rather, it continually fragments on the terrible and vivid ephemera of now.

    Galloway got 489 votes at the last election. When even the residents of West Brom reject you the game is up.

    Seat won by the Conservatives for the first time largely because of Brexit. A place where unemployment is far higher than the national average. Galloway also a Brexiteer.

    I am not annoyed and yes I am still an anarchist. If you care to be annoyed then good for you. I want to see the whole system, the whole globalised inhumane corrupt mess brought down bit by bit ...
