Truly amazing.
PR's progressives bemoaning the fact that labour didn't do a good enough job of railroading their traditional voters into voting stay, when they clearly wanted to vote leave.

Labour once again spectacularly failing to represent it's supporters, Chardonnay socialists once again not giving a fcuk.

It is for this reason, he has to go, he has shown clearly that he is unable to work with people he disagrees with. He talks of a new nicer fairer kind of politics, but when it comes to actually acting on it, he failed to deliver.

His response to this wising immigration fears was to ignore it and them.. Because of his actions the remain camp became a "tory" campaign, with the labour voters turned off.
:lol: Brexit = Labour's fault.

It there nothing you Tory scum won't pin on your own people for once.
This. The pig f**k cockwomble Cameron couldn't control his party and appeased them with a referendum. Then that fat pig Boris Jo, as much an opportunist as that slimebag Trump, saw a chance to become PM, and took us all down the toilet with him. My wife and I agreed to go for US citizenship as soon as we are eligible. Fcuk all of you who say good riddance to me.

So being asked a democratic question is the bad thing not playing politics with the process, the US like that kind of politics .

Corbyn sacks Hilary Benn at 1.15am. When people tried to tell him Brexit had won he couldn't be got out of bed.
Note from an article earlier where Benn was still in the planning stage.

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/201 ... dum-brexit
Leaked internal Labour party polling suggested that Labour would attract nearly 3 million fewer votes than it did in the 2015 general election if one were called today.

It shows that just 71% of those who voted for Ed Miliband’s Labour party in May last year say they would vote Labour now, and this drops further – to 67% – among working and lower middle-class C2DE voters.

Some claim that the Labour northern heartlands are breaking off from the party, as they have already done in Scotland. If there is a general election soon, as it appears may be the case, Labour could be decimated, it is said.

Up to half of the shadow cabinet is set to resign in a bid to force Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to step down, the BBC's Laura Kuenssberg understands.
It follows the sacking of shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn overnight.
Shadow health secretary Heidi Alexander has said "with a heavy heart" that she is resigning.
Mr Corbyn faces a vote of no confidence over claims he was "lacklustre" during the EU referendum.
A Labour source told the BBC Mr Corbyn had "lost confidence" in Mr Benn.
Mr Benn, who is to appear on the Andrew Marr Show shortly, said there was concern about Mr Corbyn's "leadership and his ability to win an election".
He added: "There is no confidence to win the next election if Jeremy continues as leader.
"In a phone call to Jeremy I told him I had lost confidence in his ability to lead the party and he dismissed me."
The Labour party campaigned for Remain during the referendum, which saw the UK voting to leave the EU by 52% to 48% on Thursday.

Is there any UK political leader who isnt a f**king clown?

Sturgeon perhaps - although she has it easy as both a mainstream leader and the leader people vote for when they are "angry".

The SNP are either incredibly lucky or incredibly smart, like or loath them when you consider their rise.

It quite well known there are going to be further resignations.
Seems a bit disloyal tbh. But hey both Parties are split. A racist part headed a campaign and used Nazi style propaganda.
The disaffected working class areas voting with a racist rich man of the people.

The point about Corbyn not having the support to properly populate his shadow cabinet was amusing.

The point about both parties being in meltdown, less so.

John McTernan, the former Tony Blair adviser who is on the far right of the Labour party, has just told BBC News that Jeremy Corbyn should go. Addressing the argument that Corbyn has a mandate from the members, he said: “He did not have any mandate to be utterly useless.”
