Owen’s positioning himself

What now for Labour as the Tories flap around panicking in their hubris-inspired wreckage? There is no shortage of briefing in the press about so-called “moderates” rejoining the shadow cabinet in the interests of party unity. This “moderate” term – which implicitly portrays the left as dangerous extremists – should be abandoned for ever. Nearly 13 million British people voted for a Labour party led by Jeremy Corbyn, after all, and it’s not exactly feasible to dismiss them all as extremists. Should Labour’s right flank be brought back into the shadow cabinet? As a general rule, surely not: and not for reasons of retribution on the part of Corbyn’s team, but sound politics.

This isn’t informative and it’s not even very interesting. But what it is is Owen showing the Corbynistas, Milne especially, that he should be back inside the tent pissing out. It’s a job application masquerading as a newspaper column.

  1. Owen’s already positioned – on stalinist Seamus Milne’s fantasy list of the ideologically unreliable to be ‘disappeared’ after a Corbyn coup.

  2. If only he would kindly position himself up against a wall so he could be napalmed along with the rest of the fuckers.

  3. “Nearly 13 million British people voted for a Labour party led by Jeremy Corbyn, after all, and it’s not exactly feasible to dismiss them all as extremists.”

    Thats odd, cos 17.4m people voted for Brexit and every single one of those were called uneducated racist bigots by the likes of Owen Jones.

  4. Nearly 13 million British people voted for a Labour party led by Jeremy Corbyn, after all, and it’s not exactly feasible to dismiss them all as extremists.

    Why not? That’s what the left did with Le Pen’s supporters, and Wilders’, and Trump’s, and Brexiteers…

    Kneeling down, with his mouth wide open, or on all fours legs akimbo?

  6. I can only hope that the Corbyn surge is soft and we can still look to extradite him to Venezuela to answer for his crimes

  7. VP: More likely the May surge–away from the dozy fish-faced hag and her soft police-state plans. By people conned by pollsters who though they could afford to give her the finger without risking letting Corbo in.

    My concern is that BluLab shite now think that everybody knows that next time it will be 1-An Alternative or 2- Corcock and UKVenezuela and thus if that vile bitch and her soft Brexit shite is still there everybody will have to vote for her or accept Corbo and absolute ruin.

    It is a fuckwits plan BUT they are fuckwits and arrogant ones at that. Or maybe the Global Elite IS in charge of them.

    The above is the only way it makes sense to me that the stupid cow has not been buckled to a far greater extent than she has.
