 I know he deleted the Nick Cave thread the other day, which seemed a bit extreme for a couple of trolls but I've not been in there much lately due to not having Glasto tickets. Sad to see.

i did but have just restored it.

Oh please let it be Mark Francois.

Surprisingly it's not...allegedly. This one is equally as nutty though. The ultimate flag shagger (obvs other things as well).

i thought people like you didn't like the history of labour candidates being publicised, oh, its just one particular candidate.


Idk what you mean m8. I’m just a guy who wants to see the end of the antidemocratic, corrupt, plutophilic system.

Oh, twitter has narrowed the short list down then.

The only thing I know about him is some media round he did saying Johnson hadn't robbed a bank so therefore everything is fine and we should all shut up.

Starmer on absolute fire today. Spaffer is floundering

Liked the joke about JRM being an overgrown prefect leaving notes on people's desks - even Johnson was chuckling away at that one.

I missed the original story on the post it notes. It was referenced again later.

If it was JRM leaving them they would have probably been pen & quill written on parchment.

You're right, quill on parchment would have been much better, he's let himself down:

a tory has switched to labour...is that it?

going to need a lot more of them if labour stand any chance of winning.


A tory candidate* has switched to Labour. We’ve had this discussion before about the MP who switched.

There is a big difference between attracting those who voted tory but have basically little understanding of politics, and somebody who has studied politics and is deeply enough embedded in it to be a tory candidate, and presumably holds convictions that are antithetical to those that the Labour party was founded to represent.. But you know that.

Lot of self denial amongst the soft left. Selling themselves out bit by bit in the name of ’winning’ and not even managing that. Sad.

+ that the goodwill afforded to those on the rightward margin of the ’big tent’ is not afforded to those on the leftward margin, which draws ever nearer the centre, tells you a lot about what the goals of those in charge actually are - ie not really forming a winning coalition but instead just shifting the Labour party to the right. Because they are as motivated by ideology, and not winning, as the previous regime. Just that now the ideology is centre right rather than left. Double sad.

Politics isn’t a two sided coin. Only very few are one side or the other. 
 

The reason it’s called the political spectrum is because of the hugely wide range of views people have. 
 

If you only focus on a minority at one end of the spectrum then you’re likely to alienate many of those who don’t have the same intense attitude towards those views. 
 

The vast majority of the voting population aren’t biased towards one particular political leaning. 
 

Labour know they’re not going to please everyone with their ideology. They need to please as many as possible. 
 

Stick with them though, the alternative is eternal Tory rule and the crap we’re dealing with now will only get worse the longer they stay in power.
