  1. Celtic in Europe 2018-19, the long and winding road

    Part of the lunatic mhedia corps who perpetuated the insane idea that Celtic could still win the tie after losing the first leg 2-scud at home. Celtic have been f*cking garbage in Europe for years, and have improved not a jot under Rodgers. They're complete cannon fodder for any semi-decent European side.

    I'm phish at sphelling

    Aside from Celtic fans having a long history of being complete scum and causing trouble being innocent vhictims wherever they go.

    John Hartson...'we', 'us'. Yawn. The rest of Scotland hopes that 'you' get yer f*cking arses skelped. Again.

    As a fairly casual observer, and not a supporter of Labour or the Tories, it confirms it to me. I won't be the only one.

    OK, with you. That's unlikely to happen though (read :impossible). The closest thing we can get to your...not unreasonable....suggestion is PR. Westminster politics as we know it is a failure, and has died.

    Proportional representation you mean ?

    Interesting to read the statements of these MP's. They simply confirm that our 2 main parties have been hijacked by extremists. In the red corner we have Labour, controlled by the fanatics of Momentum and their acolytes. Defined by a singular lack of 21st century Realpolitik and their love of madcap 1920's socialism. If you're not with them, you're not true Labour. In fact, you're a 'traitor'. And in the blue corner we have the Tories, controlled by...well, the utter scumbags that have always been Tories but now see the chance to smear the country with their own poisonous brand of right-wing xenophobia. If you're not with them, you're not a true Tory. In fact, you're a 'traitor'. So where does that leave the many millions that are neither true socialists, or Kipper extremists ? Without a true political home it would seem...in England at least. Interesting times.
  9. What is the point of Labour

    You're right, and that's why this vacuum that has been created in the centre of British politics is so dangerous and why it's so frustrating that Labour seem to have disappeared somewhere up their own wee socialist arsehole. The UKIP-isation of British politics is gathering force and Labour swinging to the left isn't doing anything to stop it. Brexit is nothing more than a right-wing coup, and it's shameful that Corbyn has helped move it merrily along.
  10. What is the point of Labour

    You're stepping into the world of Daily Mail bile here. On one side, people are 'traitors', on the other side they're 'deliberate splitters'. If you're not with us, you're against us. It seems that extremists and ideologues on both sides of the political spectrum are out of control.
  11. What is the point of Labour

    I've never once made an 'assertion'. I've always said that my posts were opinion only. I'd love to see though the facts that suggest that this Labour party under Corbyn are at some point going to sweep to power. It's been pointed out that historically UK electoral success comes from conquering the centre ground in British politics. Labour are nowhere near doing that, and in fact, don't actually seem to want that. No wonder moderate centrists in the Labour party are tearing their hair out.
  12. What is the point of Labour

    Polling since the last GE would suggest that many Remain voters gave their vote to Labour under the mistaken impression that Labour were an anti-Brexit party. There was also the 'Corbyn bounce' which attracted voters to the party because he was something new(sic) and different. All that is gone now. It beggers belief that Labour still can't overtake the worst government in UK history. I've no proof to back it up, but I belief that if a GE was held tomorrow then the Tories would strengthen their position.
  13. What is the point of Labour

    Exactly. There is absolutely NO appetite for a socialist government in the UK, and there never has been for 70 years. There are many aspects of socialism which are entirely commendable, if not desirable, but to gain power they'll have to be combined with a moderate, centrist approach. At the moment Labour are heading for a long spell in opposition, which is doubly shameful because of the swing to the right that the Tories are taking.
  14. What is the point of Labour

    Since 1900 there only have been 6 Labour governments, and they've held power for a grand total of 18 years. The last vaguely Socialist government the UK had, was that of Clement Atlee just after the war. So if you mean 'it's rightful place in the political spectrum' is one of permanent, useless opposition, then I suppose you're correct.
  15. What is the point of Labour

    I suspect that in the long run, the effect that both will have on UK society will be the same. Thatcher's ideology deliberately destroyed manufacturing and weakened the fabric of British society. Brexit will have exactly the same consequences.
