Re: Corbyn's kerfuffle

I love the way Corbyn grudgingly accepts some 'responsibility' for the Copeland failure. I'm wondering in what way he's actually done that however. His concept of carrying the can seems to be staying in office. I wonder how many times over the years he's called for opponents to resign over far less?

Re: Corbyn's kerfuffle

I wonder if Comrade Corbyn will accept any 'responsibility' for this...

Quote:
Labour has lost nearly 26,000 members since last summer, according to leaked data.

The apparent shedding of card-carrying supporters has led one former chairman of the Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) to warn the "tide is turning".

More than three-quarters of those to leave the party last year had joined after the 2015 general election, a period that saw membership grow rapidly under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership.

Figures seen by The Times showed the number of resignations in 2016 was more than the previous six years combined, while more than 15,465 have left since mid-December.

Labour's deputy leader says left-wing supporters of Jeremy Corbyn are involved in a plot which could destroy the party as an electoral force.
Tom Watson was reacting to claims that the grassroots Momentum group - which helped make Mr Corbyn leader - is hoping to get financial support from Britain's largest trade union, Unite.
Momentum's Jon Lansman was reportedly taped saying that if Len McCluskey was re-elected as Unite general secretary, the union would affiliate to his group rather than just to Labour.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39325559

Quote:
In the recordings, which were revealed by The Observer newspaper, Mr Lansman says: "Assuming that Len McCluskey wins the general secretaryship, which I think he will, Unite will affiliate to Momentum and will fully participate in Momentum, as will the CWU."
He went on to tell activists it was "absolutely crucial" that they secured a change to the party's rules to ensure that whenever Mr Corbyn stands down, they are able to get a candidate on to the ballot paper to succeed him.

Re: Corbyn's kerfuffle

Meanwhile Corbyn's cronies have their work cut out co-existing let alone being in any sense a credible opposition to HMG.

Quote:
Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson says he finds it "incomprehensible" that Ken Livingstone was not expelled from the party over comments about Hitler.
He said the ex-London mayor's behaviour "discredits the party I love".
Mr Livingstone was suspended by Labour for two years on Tuesday for comments he made about Adolf Hitler and Zionism.

It reminds me of way back when the Tories had descended into sleaze and in-fighting with the result that they were out of office for 13 years while Bliar and Brown were virtually unchallenged by them. I can't recall the last serious interview I saw with the so called 'Leader of the Opposition' (an oxymoron in every sense). He much prefers chatting to roomfulls of activists who like what he has to say than expose himself to serious questioning. Corbyn's doing for Labour what Sam Allardyce did for England and Arthur Scargill did for the unions.
