  1. General News Discussion

    Well, McClusky isn't shy of slagging off JC. http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2015/nov/24/len-mccluskey-criticises-jeremy-corbyn-shoot-to-kill-policy-comments And he's spot on too. JC needs to say things which resonate with people in the country, rather than his own conscience. Without JC being credible with the country, there is no credible alternative to the tories.

    Yep. It's the swing voters that any party needs to attract, and there's very little that Labour is doing which is going to do that as far as I can see. It's no fucking good to preach to the converted if you want to increase support.

    any reason why you say that?

    I don't think it'll be happening - not a chance - but I wouldn't say that's beyond him. He plays more shows each and every year than just about any other act you could name.

    I'd say that Chukka has played a pretty decent game to put himself in a good position. I'd also say that Cooper would get a much better hearing on a re-run. Burnham has probably lost his chances now, as he was played like a kipper by Gideon yesterday. He allowed himself to be stitched up too, cos a bit of thought would have had him realise that when Chief Constables aren't stepping forwards to scream about the cuts that are about to hit them, they're not about to be hit.

    just have a quick read of these comments:- http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2015/nov/25/john-mcdonnell-mao-zedong-little-red-book-george-osborne#comments You'll see plenty of people expressing genuine support for what Corbyn stands for, while at the same time voicing their concern that he's a waste of space who simply won't win over enough of the country. It's not about what he's trying to say and everything about how he says it, that where he might get a win he always gets a loss. McDowell yesterday was a prime example. He made no impact at all in a good way, and only succeeded in making Labour look even more foolish than it was already.

    Not all of Corbyn's supporters are nutters. All it will take for enough to change their minds will be Corbyn to have been proven as ineffective, and he's on the cusp of that already. A bad result in Oldham could easily be enough to push him over the edge.

    wouldn't you expect fresh ideas from the leader first? Instead of recooked '70s policies that are no longer relevant to most people?

    yeah the one in Hackney I think.

    The Ken thing was just one of a number of similar things. We've also recently had the Corbyn dither about terrorists at the very moment he needed to show he was decisive. Now we have McDowell and the little red book. Etc,etc,etc. Ken isn't looked at in isolation, it's part of a Corbyn theme. It's the theme that's losing him support, because as time goes by people are waking up to the fact that the theme is not making a positive impact but the opposite.

    This ^^ Corbyn will be gone by the end of May at the very latest. But I'm far from convinced he'll still be leader in a few weeks. If Labour lose shit loads of support in one of their stronger seats in a byelection with tory cuts hitting everywhere then I just can't see how anyone can claim Corbyn will gain votes under other circumstances. Remember, the same people who think the sun shines out of Corbyn's arse are the same people who said Miliband had to go because he was a dreadful leader who went down dreadfully on the doorsteps - and the same but to a much greater extent is all happening with Corbyn.

    what will piss those members off more? Losing Corbyn or losing the election in 2020? Whatever the support amongst members it's the support in the country that counts, and that's counting for northing at the moment - and that's not anyone but JC's fault.  
  13. General News Discussion

    Because JC never aired his opposition to the party leadership....? Corbyn says he wants an open debate, but it seems his supporters don't. What is it those supporters fear?  
  14. General News Discussion

    when was the poll you're going by? As I say, in the last couple of weeks - but not before that - I've been seeing loads of comments from people who say they supported Corbyn but no longer do. (I can't guarantee those people are being honest about having supported Corbyn, of course, but I've reason from the words they say to think they're telling porkies)
  15. General News Discussion

    he's defo worked his spin on you. What did you miss about him re-stating they'll still be £12Bn of welfare cuts ... apart from all of it?
