In victory, magnanimity.

CaptainBlack - 06 Apr 2020 16:18:20 (#2 of 121)

Sir Quiff’s got to beat 40% or he’s no Corbyn.

He was the past once.

FleurDuMal - 06 Apr 2020 16:18:53 (#4 of 121)

Corbyn is yesterday’s man. Forget about him.

browserbutton - 06 Apr 2020 16:23:47 (#5 of 121)

He lacked the populist appeal of shouty strongman Johnson.

Moschops - 06 Apr 2020 16:25:51 (#6 of 121)

Dunno, a lot of his appeal was itself populist ( those rich bastards will pay for everything)

Winner - 06 Apr 2020 16:26:18 (#7 of 121)

He had the populist part but not the appeal.

#3 deserved more.

Nothing worse than a comedian who berates the audience for not getting it, hatters. Nothing worse.

Had a great deal of respect for him but was disappointed that on Scottish issues he merely parroted the ScoLabour Party line that has lost them 40 MPs here.

And then there was his disaster over Brexit. No doubt he and Rebecca Long-Barrow et al will go to their graves still insisting, if asked, that their all-over-the-place policy on Brexit was nuanced and staged and dead clever and everything.

Going back to Scotland, his pal Wee Richard Leonard is still in office if not in power. For how long?

Tempting as it is to dance on Corbzy's political grave, I won't start to celebrate unless Starmer is able to defenestrate the odious crew he brought with him and also engineer the ejection of McCluskey from his berth at Unite.

Shadrack22 - 07 Apr 2020 11:25:00 (#12 of 121)

Be of good cheer. Len’s boys have been ejected from the shadow cabinet - Carden, Trickett, Lavery, Burgon.

It's only a temporary setback, mark my works the day will come when yous all will be reading jtt over free broadband on a nationalised train and we won't be in any wars vwah ha ha haar

ChankNolen - 07 Apr 2020 12:26:51 (#14 of 121)

'we won't be in any wars'

....except the class war.

Is that where everyone is wearing very stylish uniforms?

TheValkyrie - 07 Apr 2020 13:47:09 (#16 of 121)

The high? A professional performance in the 2017 General.

The low? The absurd contortions over Brexit.

CaptainBlack - 07 Apr 2020 13:50:12 (#17 of 121)

Absurd contortions made necessary by his Brexit secretary and friends.

GyratingTrampoline - 07 Apr 2020 14:17:33 (#18 of 121)

The high: bringing an end to labour trying to out-tory the tories

The low: nepotistically employing his son etc

FrankieTeardrop - 07 Apr 2020 14:18:28 (#19 of 121)

Absurd contortions made necesary by his Brexit secretary and friends.


His own statements on the EU didn't help, like pretending the Lisbon Treaty was forced on the Irish. That was a very pro-Brexit speech.

Given the current "spend, spend, spend" environment, Jezzas policy of free broadbandlooks right on the button.
