No, you don’t sound like that at all

The deposed leader of the local Labour group on Leicestershire council, Robert Sharp, who represented Loughborough, took aim at the party leader.

Sharp told the Leicester Mercury: “I am personally disappointed but we saw it coming. I have said before that it has been tough on the doorstep. We have struggled to get local issues noticed.

“All we have had back at us is Brexit and ‘bloody Corbyn’. I don’t want to sound like a bitter candidate who has just lost his seat and is trying to blame someone else, but Jeremy Corbyn has had a negative impact on this campaign.”

  1. Hmm. He sounds rather like a bitter candidate who has just lost his seat and is trying to blame someone else.

    The annihilation of the Labour Party cannot come soon enough. Labour’s antics since 1964 have done so much damage to the social and economic fabric of the UK that the party richly deserves the opprobrium currently being heaped upon it. How far have we fallen, when there is even the faintest prospect of a cretin like Diane Abbott becoming Home Secretary, or an insurrectionist like John McDonnell sitting in No. 11 Downing Street, or Jeremy Fucking Corbyn serving as Prime Minister?

    God rot the lot of them.

  2. I feel a bit sorry for him. If you were part of a company that had no hope of winning a big contract because your boss comes across as a cunt to your clients, you’re entitled to be a bit pissed off.

  3. That’s ‘Bloody Corbyn,’ as in provider-of-comfort-to-terrorists Corbyn.

    — “I feel a bit sorry for him…”

    Because he didn’t get elected on his ticket as a paid-up member, supporter and candidate of a vile, thuggish political movement which left a trail of murder, torture and slavery a mile wide across all of the last century?

  4. @Excavator Man

    I was being generous, always a mistake when dealing with the left.

  5. So was I, and what do we get for it, we get called the nasty lot.

    Note to self, don’t bother giving them the benefit of the doubt.

  6. Magnusw,

    “I feel a bit sorry for him. If you were part of a company that had no hope of winning a big contract because your boss comes across as a cunt to your clients, you’re entitled to be a bit pissed off.”

    But doing it publicly is bad in politics. You can think Corbyn’s a disaster, leave, and spout off, or you can stay and privately hate what’s happening.

    I’m not involved in Labour politics, but I’d have gotten the fuck out when Corbyn got elected. If that was what the membership had become, I wouldn’t want any part of it.

  7. Occam’s Razor: Corvid is either MI5 or CIA.

    But he doesn’t use a razor, so –

    Probablility: he is just what he seems to be, a moronic old Marxist taking advantage of the voting reforms introduced by Miliband, son of a crafty old Marxist.

  8. Corbyn is the gift who keeps on giving. Very smart of May to have the general election too soon after the local elections for Labour to replace him. Not that he’d leave anyway.

  9. dearieme>

    You do put a lot of effort into pretending you believe your fuhrer Corbyn is what he claims. But he’s just as far right as you are.

  10. The natural result of Labour abandoning the British working class in favour of vapid internationalism. Won’t be long before the “I’ve voted Labour all my life” sort start actually thinking if they really want Trot students in charge of their party.

    As for the “he means well” part, is there any evidence for this? How can someone associate with terrorist groups that deliberately target civilians and “mean well”? You’d have to be a fucking mental defective.

  11. I’d be happy with Labour if they were a decent opposition party. But they are not, and have not been for years.

    Simply opposing everything government does is not opposition, its being contrary.
    I daresay Jeremy would do things differently as PM than Theresa does – pretty much anyone can say they same about if they were PM. However there are usually more factors involved.

    Currently looks like the country is going for 3rd Conservative party win in a row. Perhaps Labour are in somewhat of a bubble and need to engage with the voters.
    While I do not like Blair I do accept he won 3 general elections – so for whatever reason Labour shifted away from what worked to what doesn’t.
    Will it end with SNP being the official opposition party soon?

  12. Labour’s antics since 1964 have done so much damage to the social and economic fabric of the UK that the party richly deserves the opprobrium currently being heaped upon it.

    Only 1964? The 1947 Town and Country Planning Act alone has been devastating for the UK, by pricing people out of decent housing to raise a family in.

  13. Voting for Labour is voting for evil. There can be no equivocation. We have a century’s worth of data showing what happens when people like Corbyn and McDonnell gain power. If unchecked, it leads to mass death. This shouldn’t be a matter for discussion.
