    As an outsider, I always hear media reporting Corbyn to be the Trump of the UK, why is that ?
    I mean, I think he is not that low ... but that is just my opinion

    Labour likes to loosen austerity and increase government spending right?
    Surely to be the Trump of the UK you have to be anti-establishment? Which is the point they are probably trying to make.

    He has much more in common with Bernie Sanders than Donald Trump.

    What's the holdup? The Tories have managed to announce their Shadow Cabinet long before.

    Because they're a single party rather than a coalition, have known they were going to be a single-party opposition for some time, and haven't had a leader busy with uni work or off in Russia. Rest assured you'll hear the announcement once it's ready.

    Just a case of bad timing really, especially as we want to make sure we get the cabinet right rather than rush out something we come to regret

    Hello coalition buddies,

    When you make your tea, is it milk first or last?

    What is the point of having a Deputy Leader if not to step in when the leader is away or overburdened, and staging a coup doesn't count? When were shadow cabinet "applications" formally opened? Not at all long before the results of the negotiations were announced with people having expressed interest in SoS/SSoS positions prior. Now, are you saying that which party gets what was not part of the negotiations, or that people had failed to express interest in positions until the results of negotiations were announced?

    And are you doing that really silly thing that LUG did where you give everybody a position, even if it is a stupid and pointless one?

    Absolutely not, if anything the reverse will be happening and positions will be merged. Quite how far Ray has got with that I don't know.

    One must remember that the left enjoy creating new and inventive ways to make every process even more beaurocratic. It takes time to elect a minister for equality as i'm sure they'll have, afterall said minister may need to use a gender toilet (there may not be one) while this important selection takes place.

    You know jack **** about my work schedule, comrade, and I'm sure it wouldn't take us so long (already more than a week) to sort this out in a similar position given that it took us less than two days to appoint our Shadow Cabinet from scratch. You know, active membership and all…

    I think that the problem is your balls turning blue in Liberal hands. :mmm:
