What's your view on a party expelling 21 MPs for having a different view to the leader Grove Boy? Ever heard of glass houses and stones?

Well.. it's pragmatic. In fact it's probably the only solution. Try to keep the majority of members on side, and gradually, gently steer the party back from the brink towards a more mainstream direction...

We are talking about labour here, what has that got to do with labours demolition? You can counter claim all day long but it doesn't absolve nor solve labours failings.

Sounds nice and familiar to me, but isn't it the centre that's eventually worn itself out and lost?

That is a fact not a counter claim

And so is Johnson kicking 21 MPs out of his party for disagreeing with him a fact, so drop the counter claim games Grove Boy, before someone calls you a hypocrite ;)

There is an argument that MP's should elect their leader in the house they are in as used to happen (won't happen now without major change though).

We're moving towards a Presidential system (I heard the line on the BBC "Boris's motorcade was booed" and then the party members get to vote for the presidential candidate whilst the house and senate are voted for by members of each house.

Boris loves a peerage for his cronies. I guess he’s going to need them for the next few years on the rocky roads to Brexit nirvana.

Not just out of step, but also plainly in denial, like so many others in the hard left.

That's what makes it so entertaining at the moment!

That would be a shock, a corbyn cultist name calling. That's all his crowd of middle class brats have done, point the finger,deflect any criticism onto the tories and scream racist at people, look where it got you. The tories had a plan whilst labour pointed out how naughty they thought the tories were, you are doing it now. The tories done it first argument is weak and it doesn't mean it was okay for labour to follow suit, student id politics at it's worst. God help anyone that disagree's with saint Corbyn and his cronies.

I think you misunderstand. Starmer is not going to run as a centrist... more as a unifying force between the left fringes and the centre-left.

Recent events have also had me wondering whether there's even a place for liberal centrism in modern British politics, but I think there still is... unfortunately we don't tend to shout as loud as the nationalist right or the dogmatic left, and the FPTP two party system tends to leave us out in the cold. Labour have turned their back on centrism, and the lib dems have been tragically short of new ideas or inspirational leadership. But maybe our day will come...

The Momentum presence is like the Militant Tendency-Derek Hatton etc presence in the 1980s when they were uncovered in the Labour party...and you all know what happened there- (not that I feel the same way about Mrs T as you all do obviously!)
The people do not like it...
And it's about time that people realised at the ballot box that Labour have shown nothing but contempt for the concerns of people in its heartlands since Gordon Brown and his 'bigoted woman' comment in 2010. It's just unfortunate that the Brexit Party deprived the Tories of the seats of Ed Milliband and Yvette Cooper and more.

I am no Corbynista as a simple search of my posting history on this forum can confirm. So go and educate yourself and come back when you know what you are talking about.

The only person name calling is YOU btw. Pointing out a fact is not name calling. It is a FACT that Boris Johnson expelled 21 MPs simply for defying the whip. Stop being a hypocrite and acknowledge the significance of that. And stop assuming everyone that calls out your hypocrisy is a Corbynite too. You just make yourself look very stupid otherwise. You can ditch the inverse snobbery too while you are at it.

Sorry if you think a thread should be closed or renamed for your comfort.

messageRe: Who to vote for?
Posted by cella 20 December, 2019 10:13

There will be no comfort politics wise for the next 5 years judging by what Johnson has already rushed to renege on. Closing this now redundant thread is more about stopping the bore off by the tiny ranty gang. I'm comforted by your concern though. Have a little rest now over the festivities and Im sure you'll be looking forward to your Leaders treats for us all in the NY.

Edited for clarity - most of this is intended for the tiny gang!
