Says the person who self-admittedly NEVER voted Labour before Corbyn

 

Yes because I agreed with the majority of his policy ideas and he was the first socialist I've had a chance to vote for.

 

That's not following left wing propaganda. That's simply agreeing with the issues being raised and also agreeing with some of the solutions put forward.

Jase,

The point I was making was that

The people aren't stupid, Johnson did very little, and most of what he did was actually stupid 

- the people listened to Corbyn and read the policies on labourlist, like I did, and decided ' Nope'

 

So it wasn't a major Johnson propaganda victory, it was a major Corbynista WAKE UP call, and they must have their heads deep in somewhere to keep bleating:

We won the argument (like heck)

We had the moral high ground (since when is deselecting your elected MP's, and telling everyone else they are wrong the moral high ground?)

Our policies were right (for you maybe but not for the majority)

and best of all

Our policies that won us the argument (sigh) and people didn't understand (huh?) must be continued and we must show everyone else they were wrong if it takes us a hundred years .....

 

Look in a mirror - thats all you need to do to see the problem ...

 

Corbyn and his ilke need to be gone. He's got us all his Brexit - he can pi** off now so we have some sort of choice on who to vote for

- cause it demonstrably aint Corbyn or his continuation candidates no matter who the Tory is, or however deep your head is buried.

Bet Putins looking at all those experts he gave millions and millions too to get his way, and thinking 'I could have got this result for 100k  rather than the 100M i spent

 

50000 votes at 3 quid each - bought the country - bargain.

 

Hey experts I gave all that money too, we need to have a little talk ...

Ughhhhh,  are we going there again?  😄  (take away brexit and you would have had a very different result 👍)

 

I don't buy the notion that they need to go with someone different again.  Corbyn came to power simply because he was considered so very different.  Now that his tenure is coming to an end is there that much of a clamour to return to what it was previously?  People did want something different and not another blairite clone.

 

I know you won't like it but labour would be mad to not go with a woman this time around.  It's crazy that they've never had a female leader, and this is the perfect opportunity to move on from Corbyn, although still remaining on the same track.  I think Labour would truly have missed the target if they elect Keir Starmer.

Not by anywhere near as far as if they chose ANY Corbyn junior ..

Whatever race, colour, creed or sexual orientation that junior might be.

But aside from Brexit people had the opportunity to see Boris & co and what they would be like . Yet still wanted it to happen.

 

 

We knew it would be a car crash. Yet the country gave it the full go ahead. 

 

I think thats worth examination.

We know that there is no one answer,

* The vast majority of those who identify as Tory will almost certainly always vote Tory

* The majority of of those who identify as Labour voters will almost always vote labour (at least until Corbyn)

* Hard Right will always be hard right no matter what

* We can see that Corbynistas will be Corbynistas no matter what

 

* It IS almost certain that a good number would believe the spin that it'll all be great and lets get brexit done and there WILL be an extra 350M a week for the NHS and more nurses and pay will go up and food costs will go down ... Who remembers that women on the documentary still hanging on to the 'extra 350M a week for the NHS ... she wasn't and isn't alone

 

BUT what about the millions of others including many life long labour voters as London and I appear to belong to?

.. Looked at the facts and didn't believe the spin on either side, but still didn't want Corbyn or now - Corbynism no matter how we ended up voting (perhaps in desperation voting against Johnson).

 

Now I did vote Labour (NOT Corbyn) and reluctantly at that, but millions clearly didn't.

 

As both Johnson and Corbyn were Brexiters ... its hard to lay the blame on Brexit

... although its clear many on both sides of the Remain/Leave camp (were the figures  30% of previously Labour Brexit voters and 25% of previously Labour Remain voters) didn't believe Corbyn was the man to deliver what they wanted.

(so 25% of the approx 75% Labour Remainers and 30% of the approx 25% Labour Leavers - didn't trust Corbyn)

 

and that IS NOT confirming Jases distorted view of Brexit as yet another in the long line of excuses for Corbyn

.. it just demonstrates that vast numbers on BOTH sides didn't believe in Corbyn.

 

Nor does it indicate that without Brexit Corbyn would have done better - it just demonstrates peoples views of Corbyn and his policies.

Wont be voting for Corbynism Labour again whatever happens.

So taking 10 million labour voters as the Benchmark,  that means

600,000 ex labour leave voters

2,000,000 ex labour Remain voters

vs

40,000 momentum members (and even those - only 7000 of which voted for Long-Bailey)

 

and thinking that those disaffected Remain voters will return to Corbynista Labour having been failed so badly once their choices have been so badly ignored is just more corbynista head in the sand,  and more of the apparent Corbynista standard approach:

- well they've got no other choice but us have they, they should listen ..

 

 

.. and I have no doubts whatsoever it was driven by disaffection with the whole Corbyn package and nothing but 'stop johnson' as an excuse to do otherwise.

There is no such thing as Corbynism.  It is socialism.  What are people going to do if Rebecca Long-Bailey becomes leader ... call it Long-Baileyism 😆

 

We should remember the above when looking at Labour going forward because some of Socialism is pretty sound.  Otherwise we'd have no NHS.

Obfuscate and avoid - a TRUE Corbynista

 

Corbyn junior, who is only where she is because she supported Corbyn - and apparently helped write his policies, would still be Crappy Corbynism

... which is socialism as much as stalinism was

Don't you mean that without an elected Labour Party (the one I voted for and paid into over decades, that same one that you did NOT vote for or support) there would be no NHS

 

and looking forward at an ineffective, MP deselecting, head in sand,  unelectable Corbynite labour, we can see Johnson in power for years to come ..

Interesting article HB

 

hers one that summarises the impact,

and before all the xeno's think 'who cares about Scotland, what she states is the situation for all those English areas that use migrant labour - who simply don't seem to have a voice in England.

Like Thatchers Lincolnshire for starters ..

Rumour mill has it (genuine rumour not me) that Geoffrey Cox was not dumped and replaced by Suella Braverman because of his saying that the illegal proroguing of parliament was 'arguably'  legal,  or for hurling abuse at Parliament, or for anything else he did;

but apparently because despite all he WAS prepared to do, he was not on board for 'working around' (reneging)  actual international agreements with the EU whereas Suella Braverman is more than happy to rubber stamp owt.

 

Johnson has apparently briefed his staff to come up with ways to 'work around' the Irish border agreement...

Wait until he upsets the VERY powerful American-Irish US lobby group on top of everything else and see where it gets him.

 

 

The UK as a nearer target for Russian nukes in a 'limited' nuclear engagement might not seem quite so attractive to Trump when the Irish-American lobbiests go to town on him.

Its been rather clear thats what he's been doing since before Labours election debacle where the EU had backed off from even trying to negotiate with Johnsons 'team'

 

Like the nuclear missile agreement being simply stated to the US press before UK parliament was informed, let alone agreed

- the EU was briefing stuff that did not line up in any way with what Johnsons mob was saying to the UK press and people.

 

We see which was true

 

This is why Johnson wants a 'gentlemens agreement with nothing binding, but the EU requires binding agreements.

NOBODY trusts Johnson. Nor should they.

HMG are excelling themselves today. 

 

They'll walk away from the EU in June if they don't like what's on offer and start preparing for a WTO exit. Given how far their new red lines are from the EU's it's really hard to see how they can get very far in the negotiations. 

 

And they're leaving the European Arrest Warrant system against legal advice. Why?

Answer to this is already in the thread HB

 

- Hint: Human Rights

 

 

at least i think I posted it in this thread ...

EU have already stated they will instruct their law enforcement not to work 'closely'  with countries that aren't signed up to the ECHR

 

- so expect a Johnson repeal on that tout suit - with his new law munger

Its alleged that Tory MPs have been whipped to declare (scripted) support of Pritti Patel in advance of a none independent investigation where johnson has the final say

I think it would be far more suitable for the following process to be applied to her ..

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/mar/02/dwp-accused-of-offering-disabled-people-take-it-or-leave-it-benefits

 

 

as Johnson sends a Turkey (Rabb) to Turkey, apparently in support of Turkeys invasion and annexation of another chunk of Syria and in supporting Turkeys NUSRA Islamic radicals' Northern Syria safe zone

 

 

 

and

the official analysis also showed that a more limited trade deal with the US would deliver benefits to the UK economy worth just 0.07% by the middle of the 2030s, or about £1.4bn.

compared to The government previously estimating damage to the economy as much as 7.6% smaller should Britain leave the EU without a deal, and about 4.9% smaller under Boris Johnson’s preferred but apparently NOT available Canada-style agreement.

 

"Dr Peter Holmes, an academic at the UK Trade Policy Observatory at Sussex University, said: “The numbers are very small. It just goes to show how tiny the gains are from an free trade agreement with the US compared to losing our present arrangements with the EU.”"

Deportations

 

Twenty-five others scheduled to be on board avoided removal after courts ruled that they had not been granted adequate access to legal advice — breaking Home Office policy.

 

Another charter flight left a week later carrying asylum seekers to Europe under the Dublin Convention — but at least 16 individuals were taken off the flight after it emerged the Home Office had failed to act on indicators that they had been victims of torture and exploitation.

 

 

and it should come as no surprise:

 

The Times reported last week that allegations against home secretary Priti Patel centre on bullying civil servants because they would not breach the court order.
