He'll have Rayner snapping at his heels - I hope she does as effective a job as Watson.

STARMER OUT!!

The three vacancies on the national executive committee have been filled by non-Corbynites.

He's bloody useless, Starmer.

His pledges - exlpains why some Blairites are concerned.

I know. What's he done since being elected? Nothing.

Electro2 - 04 Apr 2020 13:06:36 (#11 of 4749)

He'll have to gather momentum.

DesEsseintes - 04 Apr 2020 13:06:39 (#12 of 4749)

Why hasn't he resigned yet?

Why hasn't he stopped coronavirus yet?

Ebadlun - 04 Apr 2020 13:07:53 (#13 of 4749)

He still wants to nationalise leccy and water? I really don't see the point.

Gosh!

So it appears, so far, his message is 'I get it about the policy direction, but we do kind of need to look like we know what we're doing'.

Which I can go for.

The left splitting their vote and allowing three Blairites onto the NEC, is a major fuckup. Where does that leave the balance?

Imagine if he was to opine that the NHS should be properly funded so that it could deal with a crisis like a global pandemic. I mean, what fucking loony would suggest that that sort of thing? They should go and live in Soviet Russia if that like that so much.

VENEZUELA!!

John McDonnell has called for a wealth tax on the richest in society and a windfall levy on the banking industry to fund the government’s emergency response to the coronavirus crisis, as the social and economic costs of the outbreak rapidly mount.
