Seems Newsnight interviewed all the Corbyn allies last night on how Labour lost the election and they all stab Starmer while the rest stab Corbyn. It seems obvious a lot of infighting is still happening in Labour.

Sounds about right. I know some people who actually believe Corbyn will be PM 1 day. It's like a cult

On this one, I'm slightly amused that the pro-Stramer side is attacking Abbott and co for slagging off Starmer, as if Corbyn didn't have the other side of the party slagging him off for 4 years and Starmer leading much of the opposition against him. Fair's fair in that regard.

As if a whole programme blowing smoke up millionnaire Sir Keir's arse isn't just party political broadcast.
Oh, he's so different from Corbyn. Oh, he wasn't really a remainer. Oh, he's so forensically clever (and different to Corbyn).

They are trying to say he wasn't really a remainer. They have the north to win back, who hated Corbyn and voted leave.

He's never been shy of saying he's in favour of remain but his mandate as leader of the party is to go with the will of the people.

On the other hand Corbyn was a brexiteer who while never denying it refused to have any position at all as his younger voters would have rejected him had he gone with leave.

The Northern voters who voted leave will be a hard fight for Starmer to win over as they're often not Labour voters. Many of the North's Labour voters who favour leave didn't actually bother to vote in the referendum. It's worth keeping in mind for all the jokes about the North being thick as mince it's the South that voted to leave

They spent hundreds of thousands on analysing the dire election result. I'm sure they know what picture they want to paint. Kier wasn't anti Corbyn, he just wanted his job..... Keir might not really have been a remainer, he just wanted the job ... Keir might agree with Corbyn's policies, then again he might not.....

Millionaire Sir Keir Starmer doesn't really have to do anything much at the moment. The Tories are doing it all for him themselves. It's they who have lost their massive lead in the polls not Labour who have clawed it back. It's that idiot Boris who has lost his personal lead on the polls not millionaire Sir Keir Starmer who has clawed it back.

Popping up now and again with things like calling for the circuit break is all he needs to do. He knows it won't happen. Yet he also knows in a months time the massive increase in covid infections because it didn't will be devastating. He will be able to say if only Boris didn't do a Trump and listened to the experts as I did.

He's been doing it all along, like Krankie. CAlling for things when he knows it will happen, then asking 'why the U-turn?' after the facy. He can honour his pact with Boris just by getting the unions and guys like Burnham to do the heavy lifting.
Also wondering if he hsn't been quite ill with the C19

It's been a while since "Millionaire Sir Keir Starmer" has been used. It's making me feel quite nostalgic

It was so funny with the Tory boys and EDF trying to put him down by using it.

Diane Abbott saying she wouldn't work with The Millionaire Sir Keir Starmer because it was always obvious he had ambitions to be leader of the Labour party. :lol: :lol:
I think her points are alluding to the way be was willing to drop principles or take-up positions for that goal as opposed to doing it for the right reasons.
They are trying to say he wasn't really a remainer. They have the north to win back, who hated Corbyn and voted leave.
The Northern voters who voted leave will be a hard fight for Starmer to win over as they're often not Labour voters. Many of the North's Labour voters who favour leave didn't actually bother to vote in the referendum. It's worth keeping in mind for all the jokes about the North being thick as mince it's the South that voted to leave
They spent hundreds of thousands on analysing the dire election result. I'm sure they know what picture they want to paint. Kier wasn't anti Corbyn, he just wanted his job..... Keir might not really have been a remainer, he just wanted the job ... Keir might agree with Corbyn's policies, then again he might not.....
Whether they spent a lot of money or peanuts they'll know it's not about winning back the North who hated Corbyn and voted leave. Though you could easily cite many Northern potential Labour voters who didn't actually vote in the referendum are (or were) broadly sympathetic with leave, so one might call it a distinction without a difference even if they didn't actually vote leave. It is odd though how it's so often called a Northern thing when it was much more about Tory voters in the South

It's they who have lost their massive lead in the polls not Labour who have clawed it back. It's that idiot Boris who has lost his personal lead on the polls not millionaire Sir Keir Starmer who has clawed it back.

Popping up now and again with things like calling for the circuit break is all he needs to do. He knows it won't happen. Yet he also knows in a months time the massive increase in covid infections because it didn't will be devastating. He will be able to say if only Boris didn't do a Trump and listened to the experts as I did.
He's been doing it all along, like Krankie. CAlling for things when he knows it will happen, then asking 'why the U-turn?' after the facy. He can honour his pact with Boris just by getting the unions and guys like Burnham to do the heavy lifting.
Also wondering if he hsn't been quite ill with the C19
.............and what symptoms have you remotely spotted professor?
I read that he had it.

The thing is we have left. Remainers/leavers and Corbyn won't be in play come the next election. A lot will hinge on how long before the next election the Tories replace Boris and who with.

Brexit will still be a thing come the next election, it might not be such a thing but it will be in play. Oddly we might find both the government and the opposition trying to ignore it's a thing, but even if they make that work in England I can think of parties outside England who'll perhaps mention the subject

I said leavers and remainers won't be in play. As for Little Jimmy she is head of the Sweatie Independence Party and it's quite right that they use anything and everything at their disposal to win another leavers and remainers battle. I with her the very best of British

So you think Brexit will be in play but whether people favour remain or leave will not?

Boris has the largest majority since Maggie. It will take a heck of a lot to get rid of him.
Boris might not be playing party politics now, but at some point he will be.

No one favours remaining or leaving. Wee Jimmy will bitch and moan that Scotland wanted to remain. The economy of the time will as always be an issue though.
