Keir Starmer's abysmal interview on BBC One
at 13:17 8 May 2021

The Greens in their current form are pointless. They attract unworldly wise students, dropouts and Islington type Nice but Dims.

I genuinely feel though that Labours only medium term chance is to reform and become a forward thinking Green type party.

Now that Boris has cured Covid I had the joy of going to The Arcade Tavern last night with my mates and had a great time as it happens. My friends are predominately very left leaning but unlike TW4TD we could laugh and discuss without getting into a rage as we are all of sound mind.

My most lefty Che tee shirt wearing mate was a bit sozzled and told me that he got £250 for being one of those ballot box monkeys - and only 110 turned up to register their vote!

I agree about benefit reform.

It seems to me that the people in most need don't get anywhere near enough, not just financially but also non financial types of support.

It was partly a vote winning exercise because people were fed up of the lead swingers and lazy bastards.

I would absolutely welcome him back.

I may not agree with most of what he says but his ideology should be represented.

I see no sense in Labour becoming Tory Light again like they did under Blair, surely there should be more than a fag paper between the two main parties?

It has been suggested on here that there should be some Labour / Green Party amalgamation, I think that's a cracking idea actually.

Mmm

Thanks for the heads up, I'm going to watch it right now.

I recently read his book, it was a good read. I very much like Ian Wright.

Borrowing is / was very cheap and that undoubtably saved the nation as we absolutely had to fund the way out of Covid, we have never seen the like of this before and we didn't think it could happen in the western world, it simply had to be done.

It is also quite clear to anyone who has any idea of budgets and finances that if it wasn't for a few years of austerity we wouldn't have been in the position to sort the feck out of anything.

Conservatives predicted to win Hartlepool by-election

Tories now reckon they can win it but no chance - but whatever happens they have done miles better than anticipated.

It would be the biggest upset since Douglas v Tyson.

He was actually. He kept repeating that he nearly picked him up once but his mate got the job.

Over and over.

Maybe they have counted earlier in the less populated likes of Bromley, Hendon etc but when they get to the larger populated inner city sprawls it will be a different picture.

I dunno, just a hunch but I can’t see anything but a large win for Khan - mind you, I never thought Bailey would even get close to where he is now at any point.

I know it’s only up the road but I just got a taxi in Norwich to the train station. Driver did the usual blah de blah where are you going and I said Ipswich. He then goes into Ed Sheeran mode for the whole journey.

I also put my back out but leading to 40 years of pain.

I was running for a bus in the dark on what was grassy terrain but is now the hospital car park. I didn’t see a wire fence and fell over it.

I love Berlin, only been a couple of times but top top place.

Never been to the former West Berlin as I assumed it would be like anywhere else. Former East Berlin I hopefully rightly assumed was the place to be.

Sadly I believe Tachelles (sp) is no more

I think it's a thing, the voters expect a Tory to come up through different channels, ie; Eton etc but they don't expect a Sir in charge of The Labour Party. They also look at Boris more as one of them because of his personal style and bluster.

You may think the above is complete nonsense but it's my opinion and I think it is what is happening.

If Kier dropped the Sir as Lord Wedgewood dropped his titles then that might be a start.

Aside from the fact that Labour don't actually seem to be offering or standing for anything (not that that is always a deal breaker) you have to wonder why the northern people can't resonate with SIR Kier.

No.......

But I think it's a blooming masterstroke.

Apparently it's on The Jeremy Vine show now with Mike Parry now boasting that he has a home in Ipswich.

That's impressive though. She should stick at it.

I wouldn't mind having a bash as an independent.

Nice to see this gaining some traction

Err, you are talking to a remainer.

You are also talking a load of waffle.

I'll back out of this as I don't want to get into an argument, it's a bit early in the day.

I'm off for a sh1t and a bath.

It's a shame when that sort of thing happens but she should stick at it.

Out of interest what was the split?
