  1. The DUP

  2. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I read yesterday that Hoey’s CLP are preparing a call for her suspension and deselection.
  3. What is the point of Labour

    I must’ve missed them joining the SNP en-masse.
  4. What is the point of Labour

    They offer competent government.
  5. What is the point of Labour

    They’d be skint.
  6. What is the point of Labour

    I imagine the infighting and careerist element will be purged when mandatory reselection is brought in. I would be amazed if people like Jess Phillips, John Woodcock or Kate Hoey will be selected to stand next time.
  7. What is the point of Labour

    How does politics work then? All I saw was a vote share increase unprecedented since 1945, that was achieved in 8 weeks in the face of a hostile media. A vote share that saw Corbyn’s Labour poll numbers higher than every New Labour govt apart from 1997 against similarly rancid opposition. I genuinely want to know exactly who this “reasonable opposition” are, how they would’ve fought the election and how they would’ve galvanised the demographics that turned out last year.
  8. What is the point of Labour

    Probably because much of the people that will be suffering voted the same way as you and tried just as, if not harder, to get independence. If you’re that comfortable off that you can stop giving a shit without it affecting your life then fair enough but that’s not the case for millions of other people.
  9. What is the point of Labour

    The only thing I’ve taken issue with is saying people should resign themselves from politics or leave the country if independence doesn’t happen because that’s not something, a lot of Yes voters included, can afford to do. Nothing else you’ve said I disagree with.
  10. What is the point of Labour

    It’s cool that Pep gets frothing at the mouth at the notion that it’s maybe not good to tell people that they should resign themselves to living in permanent misery if one vote doesn’t go their way.
  11. What is the point of Labour

    But you’re treating the entire electorate as a monolithic bloc that vote the same way. If 49% primarily poorer voters vote Yes the next time should they be left to the mercy of the ghouls in the Conservative Party because the more privileged in society decide they’re quite alright after all?
  12. What is the point of Labour

    Much of those people who you think deserve to have the Tories f**k them over will be lifelong anti-Tories and whole-hearted independence supporters. I alway had the impression that the Yes vote was largely backed by the lower classes who are the least able to avoid or resist Tory austerity. Why should they be punished for their supposed betters condemning them to live in misery?
  13. General Politics Thread

    That’s John Woodcock resigned from the Labour Party to sit as the independent member for Ankara.
  14. When will indyref2 happen?

    Stick to the memes, mate.
