    My brain just melts reading this. Embarrassing.

    The amount of sex scandals involving Berlusconi would make even Johnson blush tbf.

    Keir Starmer

    To be fair if you're going to take on the Corbynites now is the time to do it. The election is way off, Starmer just needs to make sure this whole charade doesn't drag on too long. Make it quick and decisive.

    Deflect all you want, I was being too kind. He already is a laughing stock. The election results back it up, his handling of a whole host of issues whilst being leader back it up. All the evidence that you could ever need is there.

    The fact that the best you've got is the possibility of going quiet over a scenario that will never ever happen says it all. Its all what if's and fantasy scenarios that somehow prove your point without ever actually happening. Corbyns reputation is in the ground, I don't care how many members sign up it will never translate into serious amount of votes. He got his arse handed to him with all these members behind him, take away the labour platform and he's just some fringe crank on the left from a bygone era. He'll be a laughing stock to the mainstream public.

    I don't see them losing all the left, its a broad spectrum and losing the more extreme side will do nothing to impact their ability to win elections. Any leader with clear, easy to understand topline message and charisma to back it up will solve the apathy issue for a good chunk of the electorate. Most people are not politically engaged enough to care too much about a lot of the nitty gritty policy. For them its a straight choice between Labour and Tory. Any loss of 'the left' can be more than made up by gains from any working class who flipped Tory last election and disenfranchised centrists. I believe the opportunity is there, but I can't see anyone capable of capitalising on it at this point.

    As if Corbyn setting up a new party will make any difference or impact. It's honestly incredible how delusional some of you are. Yet again a decent chunk of this chat showing how unbelievably out of touch with reality they are. You could take the same group of 4 or 5 crackpots, do the exact opposite of everything they think/recommend and it would go a massive way to getting labour back into power and improving the political situation in this country. Incredible stuff.

    Oh so a faux sense of moral superiority over others, whilst ignoring and/or demonising the people that don't have the luxury of focusing on such spurious issues. Hope it was worth it.

    Evidently not, what am I missing exactly? What's so important about this issue that its worth alienating a good chunk of the public over, contributing to one of the worst election defeats in history.

    Great move by Starmer getting shot of RLB, and if she wasn't so incompetent, you'd be giving her some credit for providing such an open goal. The typical out of touch bellends (Owen Jones, Novara media types etc) are all predictably outraged, which will only help him further. Good news all round really. The whole Israel thing is a complete fringe issue for your regular voter, and for any average person really. Why the socialist's in the party seem so intent on dying on this hill is truly bizarre, and has really only ever shown how out of touch they are. Most people couldn't give a shit what's going on over there.

    As a general rule, the public are to the left on economic policy, but pretty conservative from a social perspective, which probably explains why labour policies polled well but never converted into actual votes.

    The New Leader of the Labour Party

    How? The current policies are in response to a once in a generation event that has shattered the economy overnight. Why does that vindicate his manifesto for governing in what he would have perceived to be at the time ‘normal times’. If anything it shows the opposite, that they are only relevant for times of crisis.

    It's not as if there's any other option at the moment other than the Tories right now, so it's not surprising they're polling decent. The opposition is appalling, wrapped up in some self-indulgent, drawn out leadership process that seems to have died a death in the midst of all this. Why would anyone care what they have to say.

    I don't think either will trouble Trump much at the election for different reasons. The corona virus is by far the biggest threat to Trump right now,. He can stomach the stock market downturn, but if that starts translating into job losses then he could be there for the taking. Don't see it happening in time myself. The democrats, much like the labour party, are a complete irrelevance these days.

    Chocolatito really is something special to watch, they way he moves is just mesmerising when he gets into full flow. Glad to see he still has something left. Yafai seems a pretty solid champion but he made him look ordinary.
