    It's just crazy when we call a guy unelectable because he wants to convince people of his point of view rather than try and get elected on the same principles as the Conservative party like Liz Kendall would have. Surely the best politicians should be able to persuade people to see their point of view rather than sell out and maintain a status quo which is personally unacceptable to them and quite apparently a not insignificant proportion of the electorate.

    I voted for him and I became a full member today.
    It's gonna be messy though, with people leaving the party but with the huge amount of people joining labour since he was elected, I think it'll go well.
    Unless he gets assassinated.

    Yes, it will certainly either go very badly, somewhat badly, indifferently, quite well, or very well for labour.

    Not half as bad as I expected.
    The huge amount of 'don't knows' effectively makes this meaningless now though.
    It's all to play for.

    lol I'm not the one who thinks there's something wrong here. What's so funny about this is that the labour party has managed to have an in-fight on something they basically seem to agree on, when there's so much they don't agree on to fight about.

    There is nothing to play for.

    Labours will remain in opposition, talking meaningless BS to the voters, tearing itself apart, until Corbyn is removed (whenever that is).

    He will never become Prime Minister.

    If you look at the past holders of the office of First Secretary of State, I think it is clear that her ego is inadequate for the role.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Secretary_of_State

    A First Secretary of State has to have vanity of an order of magnitude greater than that of ordinary politicians and a shadow First Secretary of State has to be ready fully preened and with a suitably inflated sense of their own importance to be equipped to assume the demanding obligations of the office at the drop of an appropriately ostentatious hat.

    My view is that she simply doesn't cut the mustard.

    Joan Collins is a Tory and Millie Cyrus is an American but Naomi, Baroness Campbell of Streatham would have been a thought.

    This is pathetic. Women have a cabinet majority. First Secretary of State is a pre-established title that Eagle doesn't even deserve, previous holders have been Prescott, Hague and Heseltine.

    McDonell had to be chancellor because he's hard-left Corbynomics.

    Benn had to be Foreign Secretary because he's hawkish and it will balance out Corbyn's awful foreign policy views to some happy medium.

    Burnham had to be Home Secretary because he's the only person who ran for leadership last time that didn't swear to walk out if Jez won. Not because he likes Jez, but because he's a slimy opportunistic wretch.

    Do you know what is ironic though? If he ever (thanks to some unimaginable disaster) got into Downing Street no-one would be more disappointed in what then happened than you.

    Nah. If he got into Downing Street Every country in the war would at once declare war on us and we'd all die so I wouldn't have time to be disappointed.

    Remember, he's a threat to national security, apparently.

    Just been glancing through the Mail headlines. Reading their stuff about Corbyn, it would be easy to imagine they really care about the future success of the Labour Party and are only concerned because they care so much. :lol:

    In a sense they do because all this strengthens Cameron and Osborne's grip on the Conservative Party and a lot of their columnists would prefer the party led by Fox or Patterson.
