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.

    • 3 more games like that? That should make the season finale a lot more fun.
    • 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."
