    The New Leader of the Labour Party

    What are people’s thoughts on RLB comments on abortion and ensuring the Catholic Church plays a part in any new laws or regulations on abortion? Rebecca Long-Bailey has said she does not agree with allowing abortion on the grounds of disability after the standard limit of 24 weeks – but stressed that this was a personal view. The Labour leadership candidate confirmed her position after comments emerged showing she argued last year against being able to abort on the grounds of disability later than if there is no disability. Long-Bailey was endorsed by Momentum, the leftwing grassroots group founded to support Jeremy Corbyn, as their favoured candidate for the leadership on Thursday, after more than 70% of 7,395 respondents backed her. She is thought to be a frontrunner, along with Keir Starmer, and the organisational support of Momentum is likely to boost her campaign. Her views on abortion came to light after the Red Roar website highlighted an interview she gave to representatives of Salford’s Catholic cathedral during the 2019 election campaign. A spokesman for Long-Bailey, a Catholic, said she “unequivocally supports a woman’s right to choose” and highlighted her vote in favour of extending the right to abortion in Northern Ireland. But she said she believed disability and non-disability should be valued equally, leading her to disagree that abortion on the grounds of disability should be allowed at a later date than abortions for other reasons. Asked by the Catholic cathedral whether she supported “discrimination on the grounds of disability” in abortion law, Long-Bailey said: “It is currently legal to terminate a pregnancy up to full-term on the grounds of disability while the upper limit is 24 weeks if there is no disability. “I personally do not agree with this position and agree with the words of the Disability Rights Commission that ‘the context in which parents choose whether to have a child should be one in which disability and non-disability are valued equally’.” Elsewhere in the interview, she defended the right of people with anti-abortion views to hold elected office and said she would play a part in ensuring the views of the Catholic church were heard in any Labour consultation on new laws and regulations on abortion. She also wrote about how her Catholic faith motivated her and taught her that “the only society we should be striving for is one based on love”. “In those dark times, when I wonder if I am making the right decisions, my faith is often the only thing that keeps me going. In those quiet moments before sleep every night, I always pray for help and strength in doing the right thing, making the right decisions and making my time worthy of helping those around me as I truly want to,” she said in the interview. A spokesman for the Long-Bailey campaign said: “Rebecca unequivocally supports a woman’s right to choose and has only ever voted in favour of extending the right to abortion, such as in Northern Ireland.” He said her responses had been selectively quoted in news reports “to propagate a misleading narrative”. “Rebecca’s response to the Deanery of Salford clarified the existing law and current Labour policy, stating that abortion procedures should be properly regulated, and that women’s reproductive rights and the decriminalisation of abortion should be maintained. “Rebecca’s response was also a reflection of her own personal agreement with the Disability Rights Commission – that ‘the context in which parents choose whether to have a child should be one in which disability and non-disability are valued equally’ – rather than her view on policy. “During any proposed public consultation a wide range of views would of course be heard, and it is Rebecca’s duty as an MP to ensure her constituents are able to respond.” Following Momentum’s endorsement, the group said it was planning to host hundreds of phone banks across the country and use peer-to-peer calling apps to support Long-Bailey’s campaign. A Momentum spokesperson said: “Our membership has spoken and overwhelmingly backed Rebecca Long-Bailey to be the next leader of the Labour party and the next prime minister of the UK. We will now be mobilising thousands to persuade Labour members in the coming months.”

    The Ailment thread

    This thread is to discuss past or present injuries/diseases and to ask for advice on them. So, what is bothering you? At the minute the skin on one side of the middle finger of my right hand is very tender. Hurts like a bitch whenever I touch it. I've noticed today, on the skin right next to the nail, is a little green spot the size of a pin prick. Is this infected? Will it kill me? Will it make me more virile and manly? I need answers.

    Decent Phone Apps

    Yeah I was looking at that the other day and it looks decent. I got the Tenable app and that’s pretty good, better than the programme anyway, but just getting the same questions now.

    The Ailment thread

    Tried all kinds. A pin, magnesium sulphate paste, filed it off and it sort of just scabs back. Mentioned it to my GP last time I was there and he said he had no idea what it was.

    The Ailment thread

    Tight hamstring? Fucking pussy. I’ve got this little white mark in the middle of my thumb that just won’t go. Like a little raised bump, it’s been there for about 2 years. Doesn’t really hurt just annoying.

    Upcoming TV Shows

    Any decent new shows due out this year or next? So far the two below look like they could be good. Terra Nova (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Terra Nova : This in particular looks good, created by Steven Speilberg. Falling Skies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Falling Skies :

    Upcoming Films

    It’s not a proper part of the MCU is it? I thought Sony were making their own Spider-Man ‘universe’ so it’s part of the Spider-Man and venom films but don’t think it’ll have any of the wider MCU characters.
  10. What's the one (or more than one if you like) result that really stands out for you as a low point? As we are blowing teams away and currently the best team in the world, it's important not to forget how fucking shit some of the football and results have been in the last 30 years. It makes the current success all the more sweeter. I'm going to go for the obvious one and say the Champions league final against Madrid. Had an horrific chest infection and in bed all week on antibiotics, dragged myself out of bed to make it the pub with my mates with my Mrs going spare at me, almost coughed myself to death in the pub, got forced to do a shit loads of shots and then to top it off fucking Karius ruined the night. I've still never watched any of it back, not even highlights of the goals and never will. Never felt so bad in my life as when I woke up the next morning hungover, sick as a dog, and then the result flashed into my head. Also, as I was typing that just remembered the video Karius put out a few weeks later where he's just lounging by a pool in LA or somewhere with not a care in the world. Fucking twat.

    Whew. Thought you were outing yourself as an Evertonian when I read the bit in bold.
  13. Simple question. Personally I think he's been a disaster so far and I want shut now. I respect people who think he's doing a good job and realise he's hamstrung to a certain extent by a very hostile press and also his own MPs but I don't see him ever getting close to winning an election so he's got to go for me. He might have the backing and resonate with the Labour membership but I don't think that translates to Labor voters. Things are about to get a lot worse than they are now under that cunt Johnson and we desperately need someone to step up and take him on and I don't think Corbyn with McDonnell and Dianne fucking Abbot as his generals can do that. Cameron couldn't convince Tory voters to vote the way he wanted and ultimately that cost him his job. Corbyn, whether you think he made a decent attempt at convincing Labour voters to stay or not ( and for me it was a half arsed attempt ), couldn't convince enough Labour voters to vote remain either as evidenced by the scores of Labour heartlands that voted to leave. That's not just a failure from him but he's the leader and he carries the can. He did an interview a couple of days before the referendum saying there could be no upper limit on the freedom of movement of people and I just cringed watching it. Whether that is true or not don't fucking say it! I realise that's part of the appeal, that he speaks his mind and won't play games, but on an issue as important as this you need to do whatever you can to win and I don't think he's ruthless and pragmatic enough to compromise So like I said, simple question; do you think he should stay or go? And if it's go then who replaces him?

    Have a rant thread

    Anything you want to get off your chest? Work pissing you off? The state of the music industry these days? The Tories? Bono? Funnneeeee? Get it out in the open here. I am most pissed off today at working in an office. Specifically, working with middle aged women with children. Get it into your heads, I do not want to hear every last detail of what your fucking child does. I don't care about their open evening, I don't care what they had for tea, I don't care that they have a fucking boyfriend aged 5. I. Do. Not. Fucking. Care. My mind is melting listening to them every day. Woman " what did you think of Celebrity Juice last night " ( For the 10th time of asking ) Me " I don't watch it " Woman " why " Me " I don't find it funny. In fact, it's shit " Woman speaking at jet engine level " WHAT!!! Did you hear that, he doesn't like celebrity Juice " Numerous other women ( and to be fair, men ) You don't like Celebrity Juice? What programmes do you watch then? Me " Loads, Breaking bad, Dexter, Sons of anarchy, The American office, plenty really...." Woman " Never watched any of them. Do you watch Geordie Shore? " Me " No " Woman " The only way is Essex " Me " No " Woman screams " Hey, he doesnt watch Geordie Shore or Towie either " Me * Cries * If it isn't that it's non stop celeb gossip. Peter Andre, Jordan, Natalie Cassidy, it's relentless. Anyway, now that's off my chest I'm going to have a few bottles of Peroni.

    The New Leader of the Labour Party

    The deputy one on the other hand looks like everyone entering will get on. Assuming they can then get 5% of CLPs or trade union/affiliates backing.

    War with Iran is it imminent

    Trump hates Clinton so why would he help her out by killing someone who had information on her? Or do they think Clinton has her own missiles able to take out planes in Iran?
