The Labour Party

Irrespective of what you think about JC and the fact the majority of his MP's want him out do you think members of the party will back him or has he lost the support of the majority who previously voted for him.

Re: The Labour Party

I believe it a mistake for Angela Eagle to make a bid for leadership, JC may not be as dynamic a leader as one may hope for, but at least he close to being an honest politician as you could get.

If anybody could act as an effective leader against May/Johnson I’d suggest Margaret Hodge.

Thats why he's disliked so much because he's one of the few and poses a threat to the rest of them.

I can't say I like or dislike him but I do feel that for all those MPs to stab him in the back to further their own political ambitions is somewhat stupid. They've just shown themselves up to the public.. a large number of which support the guy.

 

But then since when did MPs care about what we think? - They're always in it for themselves.. they only worry at election time.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: The Labour Party

corbyn wouldn't be in the current mess if he had stayed true to himself, this entire fiasco is down to him switching sides in the euro referendum, had he refused to campaign either way and stayed quiet or stuck to the same line he's followed for the last 30+ years then his own party wouldn't be falling over themselves to pull him to shreds, but because he's a bit simple upstairs and isn't a leader he fell into the trap of trying to be all things to all people and failed abysmally and now its time to pay the piper.

 

and no I don't support him nor do I support labour, but as with many others I did think he was different and forthright but it turns out he's actually weaker than the rest and allows his opinions to be changed based on what party policy is (the guy at the top is meant to set policy's not be told what they are), for that reason he should be replaced, not that this is a new circumstance he's changed his stance on several things to "fit party policy" since he became the leader and he's doing a poor job of it on every front.

 

as for the other power chasers in his party, I don't think any of them are likely to be much better although as things stand right now its difficult to see how they can be much worse.....

Re: The Labour Party

I think he is possibly one of the most honest MPs we have but I don't think he has leadership qualities.

 

I confess, I don't really understand the politics of politics!  Some calls for resignations appear to me no more than politicians and the media causing mischief.

Re: The Labour Party

I guess JC believes that in a democracy everybody should be entitled to have a say with decisions being based on the views of the majority rather than a handful of MP's. The trouble is that's fine in theory but impossible in practice at the present time, if we ever get a time when using our thumb/eye print to vote via the net on certain issues remains to be seen but at present the existing system is the best we have.

JC is an honest chap who lives in modest circumstances compared to most but sadly is not a leader, we live in a crazy world where someone like Blair has leadership qualities but is a disaster.

Re: The Labour Party

Sadly the current Labour Party seems to be two entities trying to occupy the same body. On one side you have Corbyn who is product of the Union bosses and the £3 Marxists. On the other side there's professional parliamentary politicians of a socialist leaning but have lost contact with grass roots membership. 

 

It's rather sad really at a time when we need a good opposition to the Tories.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: The Labour Party

you realise that suggesting anything Marxist related as "good" is stretching things rather a lot, even the ruskies figured out Marxism is best left in fairy tales, the unions are a large part of the problem with the labour party though, they always promote useless [-Censored-] as the preferential candidate and then cry the party doesn't work for them .....
