Sink the fuckers once and for all.

  1. We’ve been here before, when Michael Foot was elected Labour Party Leader, remember? The Japanese Knotweed of UK politics always finds a way to regenerate. This time, with UKIP ready to represent vast swathes of the British working and lower-middle classes abandoned by the legacy parties, Labour may well find it more difficult to re-establish itself. One can always dream.

  2. The Great Redacto

    Well, at least he is unambiguous in his intent and proud of what he stands for, even if it is totally wrong headed, unrealistic and electorally suicidal. With JC as leader, they’d slump to about 15pc in the polls.

    The other three; my goodness, you couldn’t find less attractive, less effective candidates, all of them terrified of saying anything that might upset their supporters or the Labour twitterati. They still haven’t got over 2010, let along May 7 this year and just want to repeat the free spending of Blair Brown.

    They’re basically a debating society, or rather a masturbating society..just tugging each off while shouting “nasty Tories” and offering no real alternative. Come on guys, we want an opposition that can oppose.

  3. I’d like to see a strong Labour party that can keep the Tories on their toes. The country has nothing to gain from a weak and fractured opposition.

  4. I like Corbyn’s views on foreign policy. They remind me a lot of those of Captain Jean-Luc Picard who admittedly will have a few hundred more years of hindsight before saying this “The Prime Directive is not just a set of rules. It is a philosophy, and a very correct one. History has proven again and again that whenever mankind interferes with a less developed civilization, no matter how well intentioned that interference may be, the results are invariably disastrous”

    If Corbyn in opposition can stop even one cretinous foreign intervention in the name of doing good in the world, then he’s the man for me. My £3 is on its way.

  5. Be careful what you wish for. Syriza! An international financial catastrophe could lead to a Labour government in 2020 whoever there leader is.

  6. If I look at the big crowds that can afford to go to the anti-fracking protests, I am convinced that Jeremy Corbyn will have a bigger following than you suspect Tim.

    Maybe Jeremy is expressing the views of the majority of British people. Only election results will prove me wrong.

  7. He expresses envy, spite and stupidity deep enough to reach down and through to New Zealand.

    Those have always had a big, big following on this planet.

  8. Jeremy Corbyn is not Michael Foot and it is futile to equate the 1983 election with 2020.
    We need the REAL Labour core values to be aired after being stifled by the neocons for so long.
    Jeremy Corbyn is articulating the opinions of millions Labour supporters who have been effectively disenfranchised by the Tory Blairites. He will be the Labour leader who will be the champion of the millions of working class British people and the one that the disaffected Labour supporters have been waiting for.

  9. ” This time, with UKIP ready to represent vast swathes of the British working and lower-middle classes abandoned by the legacy parties, Labour may well find it more difficult to re-establish itself. One can always dream.”

    UKIP is also a socialist party, and will become more so if elected to represent the white working class. I guess they will at least be a nationalist socialist party, if that is to your taste?

    M.R.: you are Steve taking the piss and I claim my £5.

    Unless you’re for real, in which case if millions of working class British people think electing an unrepentant fan of the Soviet Union is a good idea then millions of working class British people can get fucked. Real Labour core values? You mean envy, spite, class war and unions running the economy?

  11. M.R – yes great for the party faithful. For the voting public or anyone with a bit of memory then not so great. Going to the left of the party when central voters need to be won over has failed….
    Thatcher would have been a doddle to beat in 83, except the party alienated the voters.

  12. Bloke in North Dorset

    MR’s right.

    You all missed the memo whilst enjoying the schadenfreude after Labour’s loss.

    The reason they lost was a combination of:

    1. Not left wing enough and
    2. Failure to get their message across (aka stupid electorate)

    So expect a let more lefty stuff and a lot more shouting at us.
