I quite like Burnham, but since someone on here (think it might've been Stringy) called him a sad-eyed Thunderbirds puppet, that's all I see.

He is like one of a set of ventriloquist dummies. He is the good one and Gove his evil twin.

Agreed.

 

And, furthermore, the country is such that a robot that does that thumb thing wouldn't work now. It had a shelf life.

It's not just the country. The zeitgeist across Europe is that "centrist" left wing parties are dying out, having severely disappointed their supporters, and genuinely left wing policies are on the rise.

In an ideal world, a Corbyn Government could have a very influential voice in the EU, helping to shape the continent for a generation. 

 

But... he wore a shit parka at the Cenotaph and The People voted for blue passports, so that brilliant opportunity has gone.

Andy Burnham is tainted by the Mid Staffs stuff. 

 

The electorate are largely gullible folk who swallow whatever shitty headline they're fed, without applying any sort of scrutiny. 

 

"Corbyn is a terrorist sympathiser" and "you can't trust Commie Corbyn with the economy" etc would just be replaced with "you can't trust Burnham with the NHS." 

 

And, it would be swallowed up by the useful idiots. 

 

Corbyn isn't going anywhere soon, but I think the next leader of the party will be younger. And probably female. 

 

The likes of Angela Rayner and Rebecca Long-Bailey seem to be becoming more prominent voices in the party. Emily Thornberry would be a contender too (although not my choice). And there's been talk that Laura Pidcock was being groomed for the leadership. 

 

Kier Starmer seems to be the only realistic option amongst the blokes.

Populist policies are on the rise.

Just in my opinion. 

 

Obviously it'll come down to the members etc. 

I like Starmer but can't see the members voting him in. He is a calm voice amid a rabble of chattering self interested lunatics

As well, not really applicable to Socialist parties though. The decline in centralism is 

 

Not sure that is true. I think we will see more and more of movements and politicians which would not be so easy to define ideologically, they will be taking from what we now see as left and right and increasingly appeal to people's emotions.

If Corbyn goes I’ll probably cancel my membership. I’ll still vote Labour but only a leader that’s genuinely on the left would see me giving them any time or money. I just don’t think that person is out there.

 

I could see hundreds of thousands doing the same if it’s only centrists that are in the running to replace him.

Ed Miliband's podcast is boss. All the ex Labour leaders since Blair have seemed pretty sound when they've left the job. Brown is clearly a caring guy too and a deep thinker.

It's a pity they can't be sound when in the job.

I think they probably are but they get eviscerated by the media. 

 

Every Labour leader since Blair has been the subject of personal attacks, from phone stings by The S*n, to being branded Red Ed and your father being labelled a traitor. 

 

It's essentially an ongoing campaign of regime change. Just the way the media and right wing parties vilify national leaders they can't do business with and laud the ones they can, so too with Labour leaders.

She needs to get a grip. The daft consonant, consonant, vowel, consonant.

Fucking Hell, if she "needs" security because some people called her a daft cow for chatting shit about anti-Semitism, then Dianne Abbott should never go anywhere without a thousand Praetorian guards.

He's actually being criticised for paying respects to the Jewish people "and others" who were killed by the Nazis. People are claiming about the inclusion of "others." It's really desperate when people are using an act of remembrance to the millions of non-Jewish victims of Nazi Germany to try and imply antisemitism. Really classless.
