  1. Does anybody think they would be if they had a more moderate miliband type (but looked prime ministerial) as leader?

    Possibly not: they’d gain the non-lunatics, but would shed a lot of the Momentum lunatics. Not sure which way the net result would be.

  2. Rob Harries,

    Milliband was about as Prime Ministerial as an Aaardman plasticene character can be I suppose.

  3. Absolutely right Julia.

    I have come to the conclusion that I shall choose not the best party at the next election, but the party I feel will do the least amount of damage.

  4. @Addolff – only at the next one? that’s been my method for the last 3 or 4… who’s going to stuff up the least things I care about…

  5. You’re all trolls – this Corbynite response on Facebook is one I thought I’d share:

    ‘Labour is a broad church with a spectrum of minds coalescing around democratic socialism that at its heart aims to do right by society as a whole, rather than giving up another leg-up to the rich elite who pay their party costs’

  6. Their policy of demographic destruction isn’t complete yet. White people are still a majority in England.

  7. VP–Sanctimonious bullshit was ever the main weapon of socialism.

    Which is why I harp on endlessly about their results–150 million dead.

    It takes the po out of “po-faced”.

  8. Ecks

    Given the guy was being back by 6 or 7 other Corbynites on the thread I thought discretion was the better part of valour but sanctimonious is right!!

  9. Yes Julie.
    If the polls hadn’t predicted a Tory landslide May would have got a majority, but a small one.
    If an election were to be held now I would predict the same.
    Practically no-one is supporting May, but a majority oppose Corbyn & co.
    Same old same old, only twice in my life have I been able to vote for a politician I actually liked.
    Of course it remains possible that May will be replaced before the next election, hopefully by someone who believes in a way forward, and knows how to campaign. A belief in being nice and competent is insufficient.

  10. 12.5m votes at the General Election, maybe 1/4m from being in Government, if in the right seats. I wouldn’t like to bet on that figure declining much; the country seems to be gagging for a good fucking up the arse and won’t hear a thing against it.

  11. All of them are shite – I’m not sure weak willed May is actually any better than Corbyn would be. Stupid fish faced cow has given into Europe despite holding a royal flush.

    Same here. Con. or UKIP.

  13. Pat – May gets support from her area, doesn’t matter about elsewhere. MPs only matter if there is a leadership challenge.

    Ever thought of selecting a politician you actually like so you can vote for them? There are likeable people around, just have to get them to agree to stand and get selected.

  14. We are using the wrong benchmark, 2015 was the anomaly. All Corbyn achieved in 2017 was to get back some of the 5.5m votes lost to UKIP and the SNP in the 2015 ‘referendums election’. If we use 2010 as the proper reference, Corbyn only got 4 more seats than the awful Brown while May actually got 11 more than Cameron did back in 2010. In their usual NewSpeak the perpetually leftist media have totally convinced themselves that Corbyn is on the verge of sweeping the country. Unfortunately a lot of otherwise rational people have also been taken in by this narrative.

  15. “The question Labour must answer: why isn’t it further ahead in the polls?”
    The answer some (including Mr Ecks?) might offer is Theresa May is not regarded as quite as useless as her potential might indicate.

  16. Well BiS there is more than enough info out there to demonstrate what a useless lump of shite she is.

    50 billion to the EU being just the latest travesty.

  17. 50 billion to the EU being just the latest travesty.

    I’m utterly indifferent about that 50bil. The chances of any deal being approved by the euro parliament are as slim as Diane Abbot isn’t. And as Hannan has pointed out: no deal, no cash.
