Umm, yes

British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has done remarkably well since Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May’s April 19 announcement of general elections on June 8.

that’s from a newspaper called “Green Left Weekly

    Why can’t Sparts write? That sort of strangled gibberish has a close relationship to the psychotic nonsense the North Koreans turn out.

    I am surprised that the Socialist Workers Party, or whatever Trot Rape Cult they are, supports Corbyn. Shouldn’t they be hoping that the “social fascists” are exposed and destroyed so that the only choice is between the Tories and them?

  3. This gives me an idea. Maybe we could just tell all registered Labour voters that Labour has indeed won the election. They seem to believe anything.

    Andrew M – “Maybe we could just tell all registered Labour voters that Labour has indeed won the election.”

    If May wins, how would anyone tell they hadn’t?

    Sometimes you have to savour the little victories, such as remaining relatively continent in public and not being a gurning Welsh gargoyle prone to falling down on beaches.

    The Inimitable Steve,

    Kinnock may have been a bit crap, but Corbyn’s just a walking disaster area. He’s so bad, I can’t help wondering if the Tories paid Ed Milliband to change the Labour voting system, or some MPs to put him on the ballot. Maybe he’s our man. When he resigns he’ll have a Keyser Soze moment where gets a cab to Rules, orders a massive steak and a decent claret, before going to his barber and Savile Row for a new suit. “yes, would you dump the geography teacher garb for me?”

  7. SMFS – they will notice that their policies are not implemented and Jeremy will not be on the news as PM.
    Oh and the country won’t spiral into bankruptcy.

    BiW – Excellent.

    I’ll be genuinely sad to see Jez go, though for me Ed Miliband’s Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 43¾ was the superior comedy series.

    The sheer bathos of watching Ed try to impose his will on a bacon sandwich, his Big Mad Stone moment, or his wonderfully autastic interactions with the neurotypical were a guilty pleasure.

    I hear Ed now lives in a travel tavern that’s equidistant between London and Doncaster.

  9. These MPs are on record as lending Corbyn their nomination to get him on the leadership ballot in 2015. Otherwise he would have fallen 17 MPs short of even being in the contest.
    Rushanara Ali MP for Bethnal Green and Bow
    Margaret Beckett MP for Derby South
    Ronnie Campbell MP for Blyth Valley
    Sarah Champion MP for Rotherham
    Jo Cox MP for Batley and Spen
    Neil Coyle MP for Bermondsey and Old Southwark
    Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham
    Clive Efford MP for Eltham
    Frank Field MP for Birkenhead
    Rupa Huq MP for Ealing Central and Acton
    Huw Irranca-Davies MP for Ogmore
    Gordon Marsden MP for Blackpool South
    Chi Onwurah MP for Newcastle Upon Tyne Central
    Andrew Smith MP for Oxford East
    Gareth Thomas MP for Harrow West
    Emily Thornberry MP for Islington South and Finsbury
    Jon Trickett MP for Hemsworth
    Catherine West MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
    Afaik apart from Smith and the one that was murdered, the rest of them want to be re-elected next month. Utter filth. But the list of loons does make me chuckle.

    I must say that if he hasn’t blocked you, you are politically suspect.

    But most of those MPs will keep their seats. Those are some of the safest Labour seats around.

    One of the perverse results of this election will be that because of Corbyn’s total failure, the Labour parliamentary party will lose many of the sort of MPs that will support challengers.

  12. “remarkably well” – for some definition of “well…
    They mean that he has stuck to his loony-left vegan agenda, such as demanding things that they already have (“The right to trade union representation;
    Outlawing the sacking of women because they are pregnant;
    Ending the pay freeze in the public sector;
    Giving a pay-rise for NHS staff;
    Ending privatisation in the NHS”;) – for avoidance of doubt everyone has the right to union representation in pay and employment disputes – you can employ whomsoever you like to represent you, it just isn’t compulsory for non-members of unions to be represented by a union; it has for years been illegal to sack women because they become pregnant and maternity leave means that they get paid for doing no work for months while nursing their infant(s); there is no pay freeze in the public sector – anyone promoted gets a pay rise and lots of people get an automatic annual pay rise; NHS staff have had a pay rise.
    Jeremy Corbyn has not strayed from his path of extolling the virtues of destroying the rewards of work, prudence, moderation and virtue, while enjoying a top-decile income from which he had saved so little that he had Nil interest income in his last tax return.

    Martin – “they will notice that their policies are not implemented and Jeremy will not be on the news as PM. Oh and the country won’t spiral into bankruptcy.”

    The problem with that is that May is implementing their policies. We have had no “austerity”, that fiscally responsible spending, since Brown was Chancellor. Gay marriage is still legal. Which means the country is slowly spiraling towards bankruptcy.

    Jeremy might not be on the news but it makes no difference.
