General Election 2019

Who are you voting for?   

142 members have voted

  1. 1. Who are you voting for?



Recommended Posts

Pointless nonentities like Alan 'You can fuck my wife' Johnson and Ed 'My wife's got bigger' Balls are thinking that the red Tories will take over the Labour Party. The membership are still left leaning and will purge the likes of Flint, Kendall, Watson and other Blairite right wingers. Their day has gone.

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.

But how would he convince leavers to remain? I don't think you realise that there is nothing you can say to them?

 

The Labour party membership backed Corbyn twice, and If he wasn't in charge it would have been a similar candidate, who would have ended up in a similar position.

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.

 

I don’t really know what you gain from these fantasy scenarios.

I don't gain anything.  Just having a conversation.

I don't think that Labour's policies are anathema to the public, even though I don't agree with all of them.

I think a better communicator less easily smeared would have won them the election, no matter which way they went on Brexit.

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. 

and @Jose Jones

 

I'm obviously no Blair, but I've tried asking them why they want to leave and why I think its a bad idea etc, they don't care! They just want out!

 

There has been a massive rise in the right wing globably and we are seeing the full result of it again in England tonight. Also a lot of people on the fence are just sick to death of elections/referendums. We've had 4 in 5 years! Even if polls show that more people would vote remain in a second referendum, the reality is most of them probably don't actually want another referendum.

Keir Starmer would get my vote for next Labour leader. He's very articulate and would have torn Johnson a new arsehole during the TV debates.


The ones that weren’t scripted and he actually turned up for?

Apart from when Johnson asked him why he was trying to block Brexit? What would he say to that?

Are people actually watching it? Is it not just like a longer more painful version of the Red wedding?

 

Are you hoping for some sort of miracle of Instanbul comeback?

Are you saying that the QC isn’t used to unscripted speech? Or he wasn’t kept away from the press?

If she loses her seat, I'll have to bump that post where he said I was "arrogant" for saying that Swinson had no chance of being PM when she bullishly said she was a genuine candidate. 

ITV fairly confident that Swinson has lost her seat. 95% chance according to the exit polls. 

 

Wahahahahahahaha!

How are the SNP looking? I'm not that bothered, just wondering if that fat bird is going to have to get her clunge out.

Lets just say that Nessies hopes of winning the Loch's beauty pageant for the first time in 130 years are slim.

You could have chosen a million screen shots of his comments on this election re: the Libs. That one has leant itself to debate. Poor choice Nelly.

    • “He’s cumbersome and sluggish yet his pace saves him” ...Makes as much sense as a bloke pushing 60 still wearing an earring 
    • Charlie Nicholas has offered a somewhat critical view regarding the form of Virgil Van Dijk this season.

      The Sky Sports pundit believes the Dutchman has not been at the same level as he was last year.

      Football 365 via Sky Sports reported the former Arsenal striker as saying:

      "Has he been as good as last year? No. 

      “He looks cumbersome and sluggish at times, but his pace can rescue him.

      “He has pace and purpose on the ball, while having a great awareness of danger He never jumps in and rarely dives in.

      “If someone is really quick, they may have a chance, or if a player is tricky, they could send him the wrong way, but he stands up and asks them to do something, meaning the player would normally lay it off.   "He has an authority within the game."

      While thinking that Van Dijk has not been up to his elite standards this campaign, Nicholas does not doubt his ability and still believes he should be in the Premier League team of the season.  

      “Is he as good as what people think?   "Yes, he is that good. People are scared to test him. Little balls in behind can make him vulnerable, but who isn’t? 

      “He is a leader and has such a response of being on the ball, whether it be 10 yards or 60.   "He is good in the air both in attack and defence, he has to be in the team of the season.”

    • OK. Let's try the debating thing.   The first point about "sound economic judgement" is demonstrable bullshit.  In 2010 when David Cameron's coke-addled fag (in the public school sense of the word) launched a decade of cuts to jobs, pay, pensions, services and benefits he did so "to deal decisively with our country's record debts". https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2010/jun/22/emergency-budget-full-speech-text   After 9 years of Tory rule, the National Debt had increased by £760 billion. https://www.statista.com/statistics/281761/national-debt-of-the-united-kingdom-uk/   By the Tories' own measure, their handling of the economy has been a calamitous failure.   The second point about "realistic social responsibility" is baffling. What the fuck does it mean? I would argue that, realistically, a wealthy country has a social responsibility to provide decent jobs, decent and sufficient housing, proper pensions, investment in technologies to minimise and mitigate climate change, efficient public services, free access to good quality education and  - of course  - universal, comprehensive healthcare, free at the point of use. Presumably, based on their track record, Tories would have a significantly different interpretation of that phrase.   If @CurtisJones hasn't skulked off to lurk for a couple more years, like some neoliberal cicada, maybe he could clarify what he means by "realistic social responsibility".
