Wow, fancy that, here we are on a Saturday and yet another political thread.



Labour isn’t working Getting rid of Keir won't solve the party's structural, cultural and existential problems

The mistake — and some among Labour’s ranks are already making it — would be to lay the blame solely at the door of Sir Keir Starmer. The devastating results are attributable to the leader’s attempts to shift the party to the “centre” ground, argues the radical Left, adducing, among other things, the fact that Labour held Hartlepool under Jeremy Corbyn in 2019 though ignoring the inconvenient truth that it did so only as a consequence of thousands of would-be Tory votes being redirected to the Brexit Party

For their part, the Starmerites blame the Corbyn legacy, as though the rot set in only with the latter’s elevation as leader in 2015.

Both camps are profoundly wrong. The schism between the party and the working class began to materialise as long as three decades ago.

All of this means that Labour faces the prospect of being out of power for another decade or more — perhaps forever.

This is much more. The entire axis of British politics has moved. Even in 1983, when under Michael Foot it suffered a crushing election defeat at the hands of Margaret Thatcher, Labour managed to retain much of its working-class base. What we are witnessing today, by contrast, is a paradigm shift. Thursday’s elections were the latest evidence of it. The rules have been rewritten, the landscape has changed utterly. For Labour, this may yet prove terminal — only most of the party still doesn’t realise it.




No one really cares.

Has there ever....

ever...

ever...

been a person, so self-absorbed, so unaware...

that she repeatedly posts on subjects, while saying "i don't care"

If you don't care, don't post. Maybe SOMEBODY ELSE does care, and wants to engage in something other than arguing with you and your crony/cronies. Keep your hands in your pockets and hold your tongue.

Why do you, and to an extent, your two man fan club, fear discussion that you can't control? It's off topic, and not a product page.

Now, by all means, read this and then type a hasty response while not grasping what I just said.
I know words...I have the best words.

No, I said, no one cared. It is you that is unable to grasp the simple nuance of the two.


1) Political threads are nothing more than troll fight threads.

2) TheAlt could have as easily carried on the conversation on this very topic in the Music thread but does not wish to create a fight there, knowing full well that it eventually would do so.

3) Only the Discord troll gang wishes to discuss politics here. Most are here for vape discussions and the odd friendly thread, which never includes political threads.

4) Go discuss it on Discord. No one here cares.

Or, maybe viking will continue to assuage his butthurt and post an attack for you, call it "making fun" and claim that someone else did it first, so it's ok...

I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

I can't take Starmer seriously, he looks too much like Tommy Cooper.

Yet, you are found in each and every one of them spewing your opinion while complaining that they exist.

You are not here to discuss Keir Starmer.

You are simply here to spew your venom towards Viking, myself and others.

Why are you always in every bodies business. If it don't concern or interest you, then STFU!

I'm not conceited, but god knows I have reason to be!
