Starmer III - Cool Britannia 2.0

Thread for discussions about Sir Keir and The Labour Party.

Maybe mentions of Blair and Corbyn too.

God Save The Queen.

Talking of the hip young people Stormzy backed Corbyn. Starmer chose Stormzy as a Desert Island Disc.

But will Stormzy return the favour and back Starmzy?

Work, Family, Homeland

CaptainBlack - 02 Feb 2021 21:18:50 (#3 of 1889)

Bread, peace, land.

Flags, Focus, Groups

Will he throw himself sobbing at the Coffin of poor dead Cap'n Sir Tom?

Starmer is about as cool as a lump of concrete.

Tomnoddy - 02 Feb 2021 21:43:18 (#7 of 1889)

That cuddly?

AdonisBlue - 02 Feb 2021 21:44:34 (#8 of 1889)

The fact he choose a Stormzy record alone makes me hate him.

Ebadlun - 02 Feb 2021 21:49:17 (#9 of 1889)

I know it's potentially hard to unify the traditional Labour vote with the young, educated, socially liberal supporters Corbyn brought in.

But he could, like try not to piss off the latter gratuitously at every opportunity.

AdonisBlue - 02 Feb 2021 21:50:23 (#10 of 1889)

Just be yourself, don't be a phoney like Blair. Liking Stormzy is phoney.

Re the big spenders

@dsquareddigest

Contrary to received wisdom, at some point if the voters are wrong, they are going to have to be informed of the fact, because reality cannot be made to compromise with perception forever.

Milliband and Balls never pushed back on the spending lie, and Labour are still paying the price.

AdonisBlue - 02 Feb 2021 22:00:22 (#14 of 1889)

We have test and trace now anyone says labour waste money. Or HS2.

Shadrack22 - 02 Feb 2021 22:00:23 (#15 of 1889)

An ex-Labour voter from Grimsby is quoted: “They are the voice of the students. They have left real people, taxpayers behind.”

England of clever fools, mad genius

Timorous lion and arrogant sheep,

Half-hearted snob & shamefaced bully,

Of hands that wake & eyes that sleep....

England the snail that's shod with lightning

Shall we laugh or shall we weep?

TRaney - 02 Feb 2021 22:01:32 (#16 of 1889)

That's Genesis, isn't it?

AlanII - 02 Feb 2021 22:01:50 (#17 of 1889)

I understand the words.

AdonisBlue - 02 Feb 2021 22:02:00 (#18 of 1889)

I can feel it coming in the air tonight.

TRaney - 02 Feb 2021 22:02:26 (#19 of 1889)

Actually there is a connection

TRaney - 02 Feb 2021 22:02:47 (#20 of 1889)

Not with Phil though
