    And I felt that doing the media's job for them was counterproductive. A lot of the historical baggage was spin, like the EU negative spin, and look where we are now.

    My issue was always more about his own team and supporters heckling him. Almost like they'd be happy for Labour to fail.

    I must admit that was bizarre.

    I still think that. Based on their attitudes towards the new members. I've always believed the austerity measures were ideologically led, and people would protest. I still believe Brexit and Corbyn are the expression of this. They should have listened. They should have questioned Corbyn's popularity. The Tories went too far, those of us sufficiently insulated from the austerity measures didn't care enough to stop them, and now we're all paying.

    Yes. I gave him the benefit of the doubt originally because I assumed there was lack of communication both ways, as people were reluctant to work with him. You'd think Corbyn and McDonnell would be on the same page though.

    Do you think it could cause a constitutional crisis? This seems to be about democracy and parliamentary legitimacy for quite a few. They seem to be taking this much more seriously than a GE.

    I can't make up my mind if he has a plan or is just dithering.

    He doesn't though. He's changed his mind a few times that I know of, and I don't even follow him.

    I'm frustrated by this: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/live/2018/dec/17/brexit-latest-theresa-may-commons-statement-greg-clark-backs-cabinet-calls-for-mps-to-be-asked-to-vote-on-options-if-mays-deal-defeated-politics-live "Andy Bell from 5 News says no one told John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, that Labour had changed its mind on the no confidence motion". Poor communication after all the previous examples. Doesn't inspire confidence.

    In context it's fine, when it's over media gossip/sensationalised non stories however... Attacking them for not speaking up though, is fine by me. I don't know if it's good or bad that it was Corbyn's turn, would any of the others have been less wait-and-see?

    Yeah it just points out inconsistency/conflicting agendas.

    In other news, there's no longer an entrance fee to get into South Wales

    Not much difference when taken to extremes.

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/dec/16/why-are-labour-party-leaders-so-quiet-on-europe---maybe-it-is-the-lure-of-disaster Depressingly, I find this believable. The system has to fail before a different system is worth considering. That's why capitalism provides just enough. Before Cameron and co. used austerity to further their ideology. Now ideology's raising its head again imo. Great if the system is really failing. But I believe Brexit, and Corbyn, are the result of Tory ideology-led austerity measures, which the public is reacting against. Smashing the system, instead of fixing it.
