I'm just wondering how you could possibly know that everyone there was foreign unless you've made some wild assumptions.
Who said that they were all foreign and I'm certain that I said "I know for a fact that a lot in attendance couldn't vote due to their nationality" This is from meeting the poor sods and FB being full of them and the fact I know a few. Learn to read and comprehend.

You know that a couple of people on Facebook were, you don't know that a lot or a majority were.

I wouldn't say it's unreasonable unless the sample on Facebook was of many hundreds or thousands

Oooooo, a day earlier than we were told to expect them
Unless I was told the wrong day

And I find it interesting just how many threads are being created in UK politics and GE 2015 that are citing articles that are months or even years old to hate on the Tories, treating them as if they've only just happened.

All the Blairite labour MPs letting their voices be heard now. It's restoring my faith in labour. We need more David Lammy and less Harriat Harman. Gutted Dan Jarvis has ruled himself out though.

Maybe we can get Alan Sugar back on side.
David Lammy has ruled himself out.

For totally non-political reasons, Liz Kendall would be an interesting choice, as her other half is Greg Davies, comedian and well-known for his role in The Inbetweeners. Imagine someone outside Downing Street or at conferences who is 6 foot 8 inches tall.

I'm, talking about people coming to prominence with regards to Lammy. The Blairite voices have been marginalised. Ed wasn't nearly as radically left as he's made out to be, his program was largely sensible, but his front bench was too far to the left.

And who selects his front bench? He does

Yes.
So to alleviate blame on Miliband by placing it on his front benchers is merely to shift it from being on Miliband directly to being there via a proxy.

I wasn't objecting to their policies though. I was objecting to the noises made, and they can act independently to Ed there.
