  1. 1. Who do you want to cunt Cameron in the bastard?

    • Liz Kendall - she invented mintcake.
    • Andy Burnham - such sadness in those eyes
    • Yvette Cooper - uses her maiden name because she doesn't want to be called "I've ate balls"
    • Jeremy Corbyn - substitute geography teacher

If I wasn't on my phone I'd link a picture of a bottle of Bollinger and then a picture of Evo Morales.

I am starting to believe he could actually win.

 

It is the hope that kills you. 

 

All the Labour cunts coming out and saying he could never win an election are doing the press/tories work for them if he does actually win the leadership. Funny how they talk about putting the party first, but completely ignore that when their gravy train gets challenged.

So refreshing to hear somebody refer to themselves as a Socialist. Shame its not an actual Labour MP though.

I must admit that the Corbyn campaign is giving me hope as its engaging younger people.

Even the standing room is filling up. They're gonna need a bigger boat.

 

Looking forward to your post match analysis

Looking forward to your post match analysis

Had at least 1200 people in a 800 seat venue. Broad spectrum of people there but a lot of young people - one of the questioners was 16.

 

I have recorded his speech on my iPhone's voice recorder and will look at trying to post it somehow (suggestions welcome).

 

I didn't stay for all of the questions but two of the more relevant were about forming a credible cross-party opposition with the SNP and other minority parties against the Tories austerity cuts, and proportional representation.

 

On PR he said he would want to keep one MP per constituency to build up the relationship between MP and constituents, but would be open to suggestions to 'top up' the commons to make things fairer. He'd abolish the HoL and make it an elected PR chamber.

 

On cross-party opposition he said he will work with SNP, Greens, LDs and others both inside and outside the commons to provide proper opposition.

 

EDIT: He also said he'd set out some policy ideas on the campaign website, but that he was open to new ideas and would welcome contributions which could be made on the website.

Shit. Really sorry. Tried to edit the recording before uploading it to soundcloud by editing out the first few minutes before the speech began, and ended up cutting the speech itself. Fucking twat bastard cunt app.

 

Hopefully it will be put online by the union.

 

Sorry.

I was right at the back by the door. I thought it was a good night. Corbyn was pretty sound and the idea of a broad left alliance really appeals to me. I would like to have heard more from Corbyn rather than have the Q&A, which was pretty shambolic if unintentionally hilarious.The gay guy, straight from the Pride march, who gave us his potted life story while insisting that Corbyn had 'always been there' for him before getting heckled by the crowd into eventually asking his question. Then the feminist woman getting pissed off at men being given preference on the questions -there was a line up for the microphone - then being quitened by a pork pie hat wearing CP member who asked "would you let a woman go before you in a bus queue". Who he asked it of I do not know but the feminist was mollified. But perhaps that's the attraction of the left wing spectrum - it's just so fucking diverse.

 

Tony Mulhearn turned his question into a speech but he was supportive of Corbyn. Overall it was a good event and the atmosphere was brilliant; a buzz that only comes when you know the people are stirring, politicizing themselves and preparing to start questioning the way things are.

 

I couldn't get a seat but Ricky Tomlinson, who arrived after me and many others, did get an arse rest. He got a good reception from the crowd. I couldn't join in with that,but good luck to him, the journey from the far right to the left must be a tough one.

You weren't the bloke next to me with the BO were you?

 

I stayed for the first round of the Q&A, but left when the queue of people were getting into their stride, because it was getting harder to hear (as the noise in the bar was increasing) and because it seemed that everyone who got hold of the mike wanted to give their life story before their question.

 

Brilliant night, though.

BO? Certainly not, My Sure deodorant was emanating like a fire in a Yankee Candle shop. You're quite right, though, some of these radical types do enjoy a good sweat.

    • No fans = no oxygen. We're running on shit fumes and with no quality specialist replacements to step in we've suffered heavily due to chronic injuries. This season is down the toilet unless we can actually win the CL but I will reserve judgement on Jurgen until I see us play in front of our supporters again. 5 on the spin at Anfield is not good fucking news is it? While I'm ranting I want to say VAR is also a huge pile of shyte that has utterly ruined many foundational aspects of the game, and there is no doubt in my mind that we have been stiffed quite a few times this season; retribution for our greedy Euro League grab? Who knows but corruption happens all over the world, why the fuck would UK be any different? I still love this team because of what they have given us but I'm sick of the sight of them right now. 
    • A forthright Andy Robertson says no excuses can be made for their current form as the Reds slumped to a club record fifth straight home defeat in the league.   Mason Mount scored the decisive goal just before half time when he cut inside and produced a sublime finish as the West London continued their momentum under new boss Thomas Tuchel.   in contrast, the reigning champions created precious little, recording just one shot on target (a tame Gini Wijnaldum header) for the full 90 minutes.   For the previous couple of seasons, Liverpool seemed to break records on a seemingly weekly basis.   The football world was in awe of their perseverance and mentality. You did not have to necessarily like Liverpool, but you sure had respect them for their achievements.   Returning to the modern day and we are now seeing a pale imitation of that outstanding outfit.   In truth this is not a great surprise with the amount of long-term absentees and countless players coming in and out of the team meaning there is no continuity.   However on any given match day there is enough World Class talent and Internationals in the squad who have the quality needed to score goals and win games of Football.   Speaking after the match to the BBC(via The Independent), the Left-Back pulled no punches.   “These games are won and lost on fine margins and these goals can’t happen. For us to get beaten on the counter attack is not good enough.   "Five home games without a win, that is nowhere near good enough. Nothing is going to help the fans at home and it is simply not good enough because games are running out for what we want.     Robertson indicated that confidence is low within the squad but says it is no good just feeling sorry for themselves as there is a job to do and games are running out.   “Too many heads are going down when we go 1-0 down, we can’t do that. Football is about taking knocks.   “We can’t rely on the past. Last season is over with, it is done.   We have nowhere near been good enough to what a Liverpool team should be. We are dropping further and it is not good enough.   “Games are running out and we need to put the pressure on the teams below us.   "People will think we are down and out and we need to get the results to show them we are not. At the moment we are not doing that.”

    • I have to agree. I’d like stats on every teams’ home performance this season. I suspect confidence is short in all teams at home, due to exactly that- no home advantage. Likewise, teams’ away form must surely have taken a turn upwards. We’ve lost most of our games in 2021, precisely because we’ve been at an empty Anfield more times than on the road. It must be a factor.
    • Last time I listen to Twitter over a player...   Got to be honest I hadn’t heard of him till we were linked with him but after reading and listening to everything about him I was expecting some sort of Xavi , Inesta type player who would dictate the pace and flow of every game with nobody able to lay a glove on him. What I’m seeing is a guy who struggles every game and more often that not is slow and ponderous on the ball and like the rest of the team looks a yard off the pace. As has been said maybe judge him next season but even last night we looked slightly better when he went off which admittedly isn’t saying much.
    • Yep.   I'd rather finish 10th and just reset in the League, if only with the current injured lads back.   See how Jota and Thiago go - with Virgil, Gomes/Matip (between the two of them, that's hopefully makes the "other" Henderson and Fabinho all fit again.   Almost like, forget this League season, and try and start again - the way we simply couldn't the minute VvD went down and others followed. (I know there was the Aston Villa result, but fuck that.)   Just start again with as many back as possible, fuck Europe completely, and see whether the nucleus of 19/20 can somehow climb the mountain again under Klopp.    FSG won't buy anyone, and let's just pray they don't sell anyone good.
