What is the point of Labour

Recommended Posts

Hopefully we'll not get subjected to the heavyweight debate that was part of the last branch office leadership race. Sarwar v Leonard was the most flacid Cock fight ever televised.

Another one scarpers...

Orders from London Labour HQ to the Branch Office "Resign as we're going to get a pasting at the Scottish Election and we need to save the Union at all costs".

Jackie Baillie only kept her seat by a couple of hundred votes here. If the SNP had fielded a big name she'd have been booted out. 

The uber yoons in Helensburgh kept her in. What I love about Jackie, is nothing. However I do admire her ability to directly be responsible for the closure of the local A&E in the vale and at the same time blame others for essentially not stopping her. Spectacular.

Sarwar will finally get the job he's been angling for ever since he got booted out at WM and scurried up for a list seat.

He's not standing for re-election in May.

London Centrists get me 

Gordon Brown may not be without his faults but there aren't many politicians of his calibre in the UK.  I would argue that the UK would be in a far better position with him as PM managing the pandemic than the clowns currently in Westminster.

Given that I'm not a Scottish Lab voter, not entirely sure why I'm defending him.

Absolutely. They didn't need a big name, only a remotely competent one. Tony Gugliano has the chance this time, TBH I don't know a great deal about him.

Realistically the UK would be in a lot better with the rotting corpse of Rose West as PM so its not much of an endorsement.

*May be pish about Welsh Labour leader Mike Davies or something

Hes a career type dude. Only thing I like about him is his background in mental health. The candidates the snp are fielding seem to have a fleeting interest in the area

Rose West is very much alive and well and going by the name Jennifer Jones, thank you very much.

Good riddance. This was the union b'stard that prevented women working for Glasgow getting equal pay. Suppose Anus will get the job now.

Apparently Welsh Labour leader gone too.  We are witnessing the end days of the union.

I repeatedly referred to Drakeford as Carwyn Jones for about 6 months after he replaced Jones and even people within Labour didn't correct me.

Gordon Brown is the most overrated political figure in the UK. A youthful socialist, he and many of his Labour contemporaries soon sniffed the career coffee and became a fully paid-up Atlanticist. He bankrolled Blair's illegal war in Iraq and struck a grubby deal to enable him to become an UNELECTED Prime Minister. Since being papped out he's tried in vain to become Scotland's conscience. A superannuated fud, of appeal only to Archie MacPherson and a few elderly acolytes.

It shows how apathetic they're getting. Watching Wales just now is very like watching Scotland not long ago, Plaid are vibrant, young, full of ideas and gaining traction fast.  The same thing will happen to Labour in Wales as happened here.

Yep, careerists all over the place. For me this election is essentially the snp’s last shot, they’ll get a majority but somethings gonna give after. The quality of candidates is an absolute joke tbh.
