    She uses words like mutualism. That just the kind of lefty I am :yes: The cooperative party had her as their preference. Plus she was described as the radical centre as apposed to the scary communist section of the party :afraid:

    Also then you lot wouldn't be complaining about lack of women in leadership roles if the deputy was female. It's almost like there are other considerations to be taken into account that aren't gender :innocent:

    Ye... she should have been given some kind of organizational networking grassroutes type role or something. I dunno.
    Watson comes from a similar section of the party though.

    That's not on me - I voted wo!en first and second preference for leader and first preference for mayor. I wasn't going to shift on tom though, he was definitely the best person for the job.

    Like Gloria, who quite frankly should have turned down the crappy rolse she got in my opinion...

    Plus you can't have a leader and deputy with seats in London, it just doesn't look good.

    Two London MPs is bad but two white men is fine?

    I thought when complaining about white men you you're supposed to go all "white middle class cis gender straight [probably about 100 more things by now] men"

    Why do we need ethnic minorities in the leadership. White men are substantially more representative of the demographic makeup of the country than any other man.

    If you don't understand the need for diversity and representation then I'm afraid I can't help you.

    I understand the need for representation but your right, I consider diversity something those south of the Watford gap force on us. I don't see why we can't import an Australian/Canadian/American over most other non-EU groups.

    I joined labour again and I am a paying member.

    Labour you need to please all work together as MP's and support your leader. Otherwise you will lose a young persons vote if you start ****ging off your leader.

    You may not agree with your leader but the voters do that is why I am back in with labour.

    So the question to you is:

    What are you going to do to win back public votes?

    Well we are TSR Labour - and whilst we have many real-life paid up Labour Party members (such as myself) we cannot really speak for the UK Labour Party.

    However I'd be happy to give my personal thoughts as the leader of TSR's Labour Party if you'd like. But it doesn't look like that's what you're looking for haha

    Why?

    It was basically Andy or Corbyn. Voting Liz was basically like voting Green in a Tory/Lab swing seat you traitor

    Plus you told me Liz was as bad as Corbyn :confused:

    Women... just can;t make their mind up :ahhhhh: :vroam:

    Not really because its a vote transfer system, I still put Andy as my third preference.

    I fell in love with Liz when she came out her shell a bit - like when she told that journalist to **** off. She really changed my mind about her. People are allowed to change their minds right?

    Nownthats just sexist...
