A decade in which Tony Blair's three successors as leader have failed to win three general elections, you mean?

Two of those successors were watered down versions of Blair and continued the trend of Labour’s declining GE vote share that began under Blair and was only reversed by a democratic Socialist.

 

Tony Blair today is almost universally seen as the embodiment of all that is venal, corrupt, dishonest and distant in British politics. 

 

Rolf Harris played Glastonbury in the 90s; that doesn't mean he'd be a hit there today.

That sounds like the sort of claim that requires supporting evidence.

I don't think England is as irredeemably  Tory as you think.

I think the key battle ground are irredeemably centrist but if nobody occupies the middle ground, they would prefer a right wing tory government than a left wing labour one.

Brexit will hit the poorest people hardest. Corbyn, at the very least, doesn’t oppose it. 

Rico, champion of the poor. Tory voting, Referendum agreeing Rico, voting to 'look after himself', champion of the poor.

What are you on about?  I voted Tory, I’m absolutely against Brexit (but you know that) and I’m not the champion of anyone. That’s your mate. You spout off in the Brexit thread that it’s an unmitigated disaster then trot out the ‘it’s what conference voted for’ bollocks.  You are the one twisting all over the shop.

Too late Rico. You voted Tory once and are therefore responsible for everything the Tories do from now until the heat death of the universe.

 

Obviously this perpetual can-carrying does not apply to anyone who voted Labour in the 90s/00s wrt the Iraq War, PFI, invasive surveillance, the collapse of our entire financial system etc.

We aren't trying to blame the Tories for the Iraq War though are we because they were in opposition at the time.

 

Anyway , what's the collective term for twats ?

You seem obsessed about Momentum , nobody on here even mentions them except you.

Do I?  Not sure I’ve mentioned them more than a few times.   Seem like ERG to me, nutcases.

I think you must have quoted the wrong person. My mate? I'm one of the few on here on the left that regularly hits out at Corbyn. Then the conference stuff... yeah, must have been for somebody else.

Whenever he crops up on the telly, have you ever heard anyone say "Waddaguy! He's who we need right now"?

 

Or is the response more likely to be "Fucking hell, not this cunt again"?

 

I think the fact that the only person on here flying the flag for the war criminal is someone who would happily see the Labour Party crash and burn tells its own story.

Not "absolutely".

 

If you were absolutely against Brexit, you wouldn't have voted for the only party to put it on the table.

I've no doubt that he's unpopular with a great many people. But you are wildly exaggerating when you say it's "almost universal".

 

I think you're a bit confused too if you think I'm flying the flag for Blair. The last thing I want is to see him return. I was just pointing out that he would wipe the floor with Boris Johnson in an election.

That hypothesis is as baseless and as unlikely to be tested as my hypothesis that no he fucking wouldn't.

I was in draft mode, I thought you meant peak Tony Blair! but you honestly think that 2019 Tony Blair could win an election, without media support and on a remain platform?

 

it would be almost as big a wipeout as Clegg in 2015!

That's one perspective. Here's Jeremy Hunt with another..

 

“When I went to Auschwitz I rather complacently said to myself, ‘thank goodness we don’t have to worry about that kind of thing in the UK’ and now I find myself faced with the leader of Labour who has opened the door to antisemitism”

    • What? What the fuck is this clown talking about in the Guardian comments section on Ronay’s Silva dissection? They love to give themselves more relevance than they have,  
       
    • It's great news that we have two players fit and raring to go. 
    • A bullish Xherdan Shaqiri has said that he is ready for more game time after his star showing against Everton in the Reds 5-2 victory on Wednesday evening.

      The Swiss star was a surprise selection in the starting lineup especially when you take into account that he had not started a league game since the end of January and his last start in all competitions came on that memorable night on the 7th of May against Barcelona.

      Before Wednesday night, Shaqiri played a grand total of 25 minutes in all competitions with his longest run-out coming in the Community Shield against Man City.

      A long running battle with a calf injury has been the main reason for his lack of regular first-team action during this campaign, but after scoring his first goal in nearly a year and displaying his sublime skill, Shaq has made it known to all concerned including his manager that he is well and truly back.

      The Echo reported the popular utility player as saying:

      “ I’m ready, I think the coach saw that too in training,"

      "I trained very well and today he gave me the chance and I think I played very well.

      “ At the end of the day it’s important to win games with my team, we won it as a team, and obviously when I can contribute it’s always good. 

      “Let’s hope for more games!"
        Shaqiri said despite the lack of minutes, rust was never a issue and he felt at home on the pitch.  

      “ You know me and how I play, so it’s nothing new!

      “I’m an instinctive footballer, so I like to play good football if I feel good. I felt good so I tried some things and it went well.

      “ I was very happy to score after a long time. It was a good feeling."

      While the injury was undoubtedly a frustrating time for the 28 year-old, he counted his blessings that it was not something more serious like a ligament injury.

      “ I’ve been injured [but] thank God I don’t have knee problems or something. I had some muscle problems so I just needed a few weeks to recover well.

      “The calf is very dangerous to get another injury and I had this so obviously it was not nice but I stayed positive and tried to come back. 

      “I worked very hard in the gym and with the fitness coaches to come back and be ready when the coach needs me. I’m feeling good."

      Shaqiri was a player that Jürgen Klopp turned to around this time last season and he certainly did not let his manager down turning in some special performances against Man United and Arsenal in particular.

      He is well aware of the jam packed fixture list during this month and says it is great to be option for his manager again.

      "Everybody knows that it’s a busy period now with a lot of games coming up, [so] I’m very happy to be back. I’m feeling fresh, feeling good, and I think you saw that.

      “We know each other very well, we train every day together, the team stays like last season even when the coach makes some changes - five changes, I think.

      “He changed the formation a little bit so it was not simple but we managed that very well today against a good side.

      . [It’s] a derby obviously so we wanted to keep the city red, so it was a very important win.
