I’m leaving to start up an independent thread.

thisonehasalittlehat - 21 Feb 2019 17:27:22 (#2 of 3316)

I think on reflection the fact that we're (you're, really) umpteen threads in and nothing at all has changed says a lot. No nearer government. No nearer wider acceptance. No sceptics brought on board. No less useless and inept. No fewer antisemitism. Everything just hobbling along in the same old inept way.

Natascha - 21 Feb 2019 17:33:26 (#3 of 3316)

Yeah, but now we're friends. That has to mean something. I LIKE you.

thisonehasalittlehat - 21 Feb 2019 17:34:37 (#4 of 3316)

Eek.

Hello new thread.

It’s a dismal period for political talents. A point which has been made many times over.

thisonehasalittlehat - 21 Feb 2019 17:35:30 (#6 of 3316)

Ed balls was good on strictly.

robbie76 - 21 Feb 2019 17:35:38 (#7 of 3316)

Don’t go yet, Capt. You can have a personal audience.

thisonehasalittlehat - 21 Feb 2019 17:38:06 (#8 of 3316)

I wonder if ed balls can come back and rescue us all. Sometimes I dream about that.

Yes I saw that wibble.

Mind how you tweet...

robbie76 - 21 Feb 2019 17:44:28 (#11 of 3316)

Was there any movement on the suggestion that social media sites should be responsible for posts that they publish?

54321wibble - 21 Feb 2019 17:51:49 (#12 of 3316)

To be fair, Lawlsie, I don't tend to tweet anything anti-semitic.

In fact to be fair, since at the moment I only tweet on behalf of work from a work account which is followed by the Chairman and CEO of the organisation, all of my tweets are VERY innocuous!

I listen to Milliband's podcast and muse on how much shit we would have all avoided had he won in 2015.

Jacob_Richter - 21 Feb 2019 18:11:59 (#14 of 3316)

And a good many of those who set about undermining EM are those undermining JC.

PostmodernToss - 21 Feb 2019 18:12:59 (#15 of 3316)

Perhaps they want Labour run by someone competent?

carterbrandon - 21 Feb 2019 18:26:21 (#16 of 3316)

To be fair you were a big cheerleader for a Conservative PM who has fucked up the country beyond the wildest imaginings of Corbyn .

levelgaze - 21 Feb 2019 18:29:44 (#17 of 3316)

Ouch.

GreenFuture - 21 Feb 2019 18:31:43 (#18 of 3316)

4 years in but the character of most labour councils doesn’t seem to have changed much at all.

My Green subs lapsed quite a while back, not over impressed with them either, but Corbyn just hasn’t done enough to build. Behind in the polls mid term is always bad for an opp. In these circumstances it’s woeful.

I’m likely to sign up to my little tribe again.

GreenFuture - 21 Feb 2019 18:33:00 (#19 of 3316)

It’s precisely the vile character of this racist and sadist government that makes Corbyns lacklustre performance more of a letdown.

If the Brexit vote had gone 52-48 the other way (which is what all the opinion polls said would happen) then Cameron would now be remembered as one of our very best PMs, of course.
