Re: June 8th General Election

Here's a good reason why Theresa May may have been reluctant to hold an election despite Labour's poor standing in the polls - 54% of her constituents voted to remain. Will they vote for someone who has done two u-turns?

Ah.. so that is why the EU refused to sort out immigrants' citizenship when the British wanted to ASAP; they knew there would be an election and wanted to get rid of Mrs May. Conspiracy! Conspiracy! Have those pesky Ruskies been hacking again....? now, where did I put my tin foil hat...


Interesting question Andrew; I haven't a clue regarding their voting status.

It's one way of gagging your opposition.

Re: June 8th General Election

Probably trying to hang on to those NEC seats. Same reason Corbyn will attempt to stay on until September. They want to change the rules as fewer nominations from the PLP are required to get onto the ballot that is then given to members, it's their way to ensure the hard-left retain control of the party but if they need to last until the vote at the Labour conference.

Oh btw, Andrew, I am glad you finally agree with me that you did raise the issue of soft brexit in the post, not necessarily you via your words but by highlighting the articles you quoted from.
As Damien predicted, Nigel Farage has decided against running. He doesn't like the day-to-day stuff and he has a promising career on the lecture circuit ahead of him. He would have outshone Paul Nuttall so it would be a bit uncomfortable. A similar experience that now awaits Tim Farron if Clegg and Cable are back in Parliament..
I agree that I quoted an article that mentioned soft Brexit and am pleased that you confirm that I did not mention it directly or quote any articles mentioning a hard Brexit. For the last thing I want is to return to the debates of yesteryear.

Re: June 8th General Election

Gary, l think you should stand in the corner. I think Labour will suffer such a defeat, they will be blasted off the planet.

I am Labour through, and through. But NOT this time.

Corbyn is a ****. He has no chance of winning. He has only got into the Leaders seat because of Momentum.

He has no bottle, even Stephen Hawkins doesn't like him - and he is Labour. And now we have Labour MPs not prepared to stand, as they are not stupid as they will lose

Found out the answer - same people who could vote in the referendum ie British citizens plus those citizens of the Republics of Cyprus and Ireland, and Malta who live in the UK.

As Sebastian Payne says in the FT, "...it is hard not to conclude that Labour has the wrong message, delivered by the wrong leader at the wrong time."

I'm a member of Unite more by lethargy. I joined MSF way back as a white collar union in a hospital, it became Amicus and now merged to form Unite which really is too big and wide spread to really represent anyone.

Re: June 8th General Election

Quote:
Len McCluskey has been re-elected as Unite's general secretary following a bitter leadership battle.

The result will be seen as a boost for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Mr McCluskey's chief rival Gerard Coyne was seen as the anti-Corbyn candidate and Unite is the party's biggest donor.

Mr Coyne - who was beaten by nearly 6,000 votes - said Unite had to change and claimed he had faced attempts to "bully and intimidate" him, even after voting had closed.

Mr Coyne was suspended from his job as a Unite official on Thursday pending an investigation.

Looks like Jezzer's left wing backer is still firmly in charge. I wonder how this will play with the electorate?
