Blair would have battered Johnson. But Momentum want him in The Hague. 

That's the 2019 Blair, Rico.  I'm obliged that you read my post, but at least make it to the second line!

Mining constituency voting for Tories. 
 

Fuck this shit. 


Sons of the sons of miners. 
 

They are not their parents, they’re the spoon fed scare tactics of insular, parochial politics and we sleep walked in to this.

Were was that pal 

It was a Brexit party fella on sky news, my mistake, I thought it was a Tory MP. I mis-heard the first bit of the conversation. Bercow had him on toast though.

1997 Blair would have won an absolute massive Labour majority.  

2019 Blair wouldn't, but 97 Blair and New Labour would have smashed the Tories to bits.

He would have positioned the party firmly as remain and aimed to keep as many northern Labour leavers as possible whist going after Tory and Lib Dem remainers in the south. In many ways the reverse of the current Tory strategy.

1997 Tony Blair would have lost this election tonight. There is nobody in the current Labour party that would have won.

Don’t be silly. 1997 Blair would have ran absolute rings around this shot show of a Tory government. Energy & verve & optimism is precisely what was needed. Corbyn’s leadership has been Roy Hodgson managing Liverpool levels of farce. There’s some who wanted him in because he wasn’t the status-quo & there’s others that supported him because they love the ‘club’. But it’s been clear as day for years that all he’d eventually succeed doing is in legitimising Tory rule by taking a democratic hammering. And like Hodgson he’s not the kind of man to ever leave of his own accord when it was clear moons ago he & his team were never the people to see the job through.

I know a couple of scouse Tory voters who live out of the city now. 

 

I've just asked them on social media if they think the Tories will leave the central government cuts to Liverpool at £444m, or if they'll hammer us even more. 

 

I don't expect an answer.

I've lived in the Midlands my whole life, and The S*n racist narrative is all around here, and growing since the referendum result.

 

It's no coincidence that Liverpool has such a heavy remain/Labour support as a result of not having that disgusting rag anywhere near the City for 30 years.

How do you keep people by doing the exact opposite of what they want to happen?

Alan Johnson really sticking the boot into Momentum and Lansman on ITV, Osborne pissing himself laughing and Ed Balls sort of nodding along. Looks like the revenge of New Labour.

Thoughts on the Lib Dem performance SD?

Explain how the 97 Blair would have won tonight without his pals in The S*n helping him?

Because Johnson is a barely sentient hippo and Blair speaks very, very well. Blair would have had 3 years to convince those leave voting Labour voters it was dumb.

Bit premature isn't it? I don't know how many seats we've won.

Well, we can safely say you haven't won 635...

By being much better at communicating how voting for the Tories were going to fuck them over.  By being much better at communicating hope and competence.  By being much better at controlling and delivering the message.

1997 Blair with these policies would have won easily, in my opinion.

While the media hammers Blair for going against the will of the people, and how he hates democracy. 

 

I imagine the antisemitism shouts would still be going too.

    • Jürgen Klopp has given fulsome praise to his players as Liverpool had to fight exceptionally hard to record their 18th straight league win after a 3-2 victory against West Ham on Monday night.

      The home fans walking into Anfield would have by and large expected a routine victory against a side who are battling to hold onto their Premier League status.

      And when Gini Wijnaldum scored from a flowing move within the ten minute mark, it appeared that the Reds would stroll to another three points.

      However the Hammers who have just one league win in 2020 and whose fans are in uproar over the current ownership of the East London club, were in the mood to cause some uncomfortable moments for the home side and equalised through a Issa Diop header which went through Alisson.

      They then took a shock lead early in the second half when substitute Pablo Fornals smartly turned the ball home and any discussion of a routine evening at the office was now well and truly on the back burner.

      During this winning run in the league, Liverpool have had their hurdles to overcome and this was another one.

      While they were not at their fluid best, they found a way again with goals by Mo Salah (via a Lukasz Fabianski howler) and Sadio Mane. 

      Speaking after the game as the Reds equaled the consecutive league victory mark set by Man City, Klopp said he continues to be be amazed by the ability of his squad to perform game after game.

      The Echo reported the manager as saying:

      A couple of years ago, maybe at the beginning of my time here, I said we wanted to write our own stories and create our own history.

      “Obviously the boys have taken that really seriously, when I said that!

      “It’s all cool, but not too important at the moment. 

      “I never thought it would ( the consecutive wins) would bebroken or equalled We did it and I cannot believe it happened to be honest.

      “It’s so special. The numbers are incredible, so difficult.

      “We have spoken about wonderful games and hard games, and it was a difficult one tonight. 

      “You can only get those numbers by winning all those games. The brilliant ones, the rougher ones, the more grumpy ones.”

      “That’s what counts. 

      We all know that it’s very special, but at the moment we are just in the situation and want to recover and want to prepare for the next one.”  

      Despite also battling for their Premier League survival, Klopp said the next clash against Watford on Saturday evening will a considerable challenge.

      “The next three points are always the hardest. 

      “It’s always been like this. It would be strange if we said anything different. 

      “The next 12 points will be difficult because they are difficult, you saw that tonight.

      “The next opponent is waiting, the whole stadium at Watford will go for us. It’s completely normal. It will be a special atmosphere and we have to be 100% ready.

      “I saw them against United and they played really well here because at the moment everybody is fighting for everything.

      “I saw the boys tonight, they are really ready to fight. 

      “As long as we have that then nobody should worry, but we really have a lot of work still to do.”   Klopp also a special mention for the crowd after the 21st successive home league win.

      “We have to be ready for the hardest work as a unit, and we were there again together with the crowd tonight, I loved that fact. 

      “Whatever will happen this season is an effort of all of us. I could not be more thankful or appreciate the support we get.   "So far so good."

    • If Lallana's leaving then Naby needs to stay so he can take over as stringvest's favourite player.
    • Amendment to earlier post - he also looked very good at the start against Barcelona at the Nou Camp. Of course he then went off injured, and the reshuffle led directly to their first goal. His injury record feels like it puts Harry Kewells in the shade.
