The Labour Party will continue to Dominate the news for the foreseeable future; because it is the Labour Party that all the media know will win the Next General Election. So let us use the opportunities this affords us to use our raised profile, remember as this recent debacle proves; the smears don't work, they just make them look weak, and they only make us stronger. In the words of the old adage there is no such thing as bad publicity. Therefore we continue with the Target of Two Million Members of the Labour Party by the latest point at which there can be Tory Government. 5 May 2022. With over 800,000 members already this is achievable.

Consider the bunkum about Labour's institutionalised anti-semitism. For those gullible enough to swallow the line of the Labour right, a number have foolishly taken them at their word and torn up their party cards. Meanwhile, they are getting replaced by a wider circle of Labour supporters disgusted at the attacks on Corbyn and have joined the party in solidarity. When you're in the numbers game, which among other things factional battles always are, pushing a strategy that builds your opponents' base while shredding your own is stupid.
Not only are the right's shenanigans building up the left, it's firming up and sharpening its attitudes and outlook. Smart centre and right Labour MPs understand this, which is why we see the same old malcontents time and again. Most keep shtum. As they have and continue to behave appallingly, they make their dread nemesis - mandatory reselection - more likely. Consider Unite, would they now be backing it if the right hadn't repeatedly lied about and scabbed on the members these last three years? The leader's office might be minded to compromise, but the bulk of the left are not. Support for reselection is growing among members, which the right can chalk up to their genius moves.
And third, for all the hand-wringing, the theatrics and bad language, what has actually been achieved? There is no appreciable impact on Labour's polling. Indeed, the consensus points to a modest lead. Likewise, ordinary people who don't pay attention to Westminster minutiae are getting sick of hearing about it too. And guess what, they're not blaming Corbyn for the round-the-clock coverage. They see politicians who like the sounds of their own voices attempting to bully someone they might not like but accept is principled and driven by values over self-interest. It's also possible a few more people have started following things in more depth and are getting a crash course in media manipulation and lobby hack cronyism. Well done the Labour right!

The current grotesque parody of a Labour Party is rife with Jew haters. You can see it on here amongst the current spasm of drivel being pumped out by the local Corbynistas and Momentum toss pots.
Corbyn will never be Prime Minister thank God because the decent voters of this country can see right through him. Neither will any of his gang hold any sort of office.

Imagine Corbyn with McDonnell as his sidekick...
Good grief man, are there 2 million idiots in the UK?
I think momentum should start their own political party like UKIP did. They're remarkably similar - intolerant of a different view and full of racists.

Ha, you can tell Corbyn is in with a chance of becoming PM by the levels of absurdity and hysteria of his opponents, both in the media and tory voters.

I find it sad that the only response is so often fatuous disruption. Surely the other side have some reasoned argument to contribute

Sometimes the truth hurts Walker. Get over it.

Well Walker I think you've won the day on many levels! Presumably these people have no policies to discuss and no reasoned opinions to offer. Abuse, ridicule and disruption is what they're reduced to. Sad really. Sign of the times unfortunately. It's reassuring that some posts do manage informed debate without this attendant silliness and insult.

QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
