    None of this is inconsistent with the two valid abbreviations it could be. It says 'see less', but does not say of what. I agree that 'See less suggestions' would be wrong.
    What is implicitly the noun? I would argue "people" taken from the head of the list and therefore fewer, rather than "the list"

    Well, he was given some role within the / a Labour defense committee. He was ( luckily ) doomed from the start however.

    I wouldn't count that is a political career, Corbyn could have put a random guy from a CND rally in that job easy enough

    Regardless of how substantial you deem it to be, it was still within a relatively influential political party - where he is seemed to be influential in some circles.

    I doubt Labour will have any influence when it comes to the defence industry by the time Corbyn is done with it, that's if there is any left as it is, the only people who will listen are the hardline pacifists and otherwise mentally unhinged people

    Most of the PLP and National Exec feel fairly polar to Corbyn. If Corbyn get's his way maybe they be more redundant, but the influence of unions and core voter base do have considerable power, of which most are in line with general public consensus.

    Regardless, they would almost always have greater influence than say the Greens , Lib Dems or UKIP. Though the latter is gaining a more solid reputation as other parties seem to fault.

    Unions that Corbyn doesn't seem to be too keen on keeping the support of, it isn't tenable to be anti trident and expect strong support from unite

    True.

    The outcome will be depdent on whether Corbyn can win over the PLP and National Exec, something I'm doubtful of.

    Can't win over the plp, can forcibly win over the exec.

    I'll be away until Monday as I need to prep for a Stats exam that's I'm rather unprepared for. Ah, the joys of an all-nighter in the library

    NO, Chancellor's Curse hasn't struck already.

    Adam et al will be filling in for me whilst I'm away so the MHoC will continue to have a ST presence.

    So if anything does come up in the next few days, shoot me a PM and I will do my best to help; but I don't intend on getting involved in anything unless major issues!

    "SIR*– BHS has gone into administration with*11,000 jobs lost. That is nearly three times the number of jobs under threat at the Port Talbot steelworks.

    Should we expect demonstrations and*declarations of support from the Trades Union Congress and the Labour Party? Will there be motions in the Commons and calls for the Government to nationalise the company and bail it out so that the workers can enjoy jobs for life, whether or not anyone wants to buy what they sell? Will civil servants be forced to buy their clothes at BHS?

    Or should we conclude that, as far as the Labour movement is concerned, only workers in heavy industry are “real” workers?

    BHS isn't a strategic asset.

    That's the difference.
