    We'll wait with baited breath



    You don't actually know the precise reason why he resigned and if you did, I'd like to hope you wouldn't be making these comments. I'm obviously not going to say here without permission, but it's a major thing that he's having to deal with in his offline life right now.
    You know I don't do sympathy points, resignation is also extreme unless there were plans to do so anyway.

    If we had a bloated shadow cabinet (noting that shadow cabinet roles are much less active than cabinet roles) where we just gave people fancy titles for doing barely anything then you'd have criticised us for that. I personally believe that both the front bench should be much, much smaller than in RL (there's only 50 MPs after all).
    You cut it down to a sensible level, QQ then cut it down even further

    Just to let you know, I was keen to expand the Shadow Cabinet slightly when I took over, hence why I split some of the roles into two or even three.

    Last I checked splitting roles increased numbers rather than decreases them...
    Or is time flying faster than I think?

    If you mean me personally then I can't even remember how much I cut it down. *shrug* It's not important anyway.

    Rose fast on fortune and questionable play, fell faster
    Hear, hear! There's unfortunately nothing impressive about his abundance of spare time and luck. :dontknow:

    Anyway, I hope your next choice will be wiser, Labourites.

    It does indeed increase numbers. Therefore, if anything, I have increased the Shadow Cabinet and not the opposite as you have been suggesting.

    Time flies fast and clearly you've been in the role even shorter than I thought.

    I have resigned as Labour Leader. The reason behind this is because of family reasons. I would like to thank everyone in the MHoC who has helped me with my role and been so very kind to me. I will still be staying in the MHoC but will be less involved in the running of the party.
    Hope everything's ok with your family and I wish you the best of luck for whatever you decide to do next in the House.

    I hope everything gets better, I don't know what is wrong but family comes a long way ahead of this place.

    When has a labour prime minister ever done anything good
    Housing Act 1924 (God bless Ramsay MacDonald )

    Clement Attlee's government

    All the liberal social reforms in the 60s.

    Blair - devolution, minimum wage, Iraq War (lol jokes)

    To name but a smidgen of things....

    Or if you meant a Labour prime minister on here, I'm not sure I'm new around here.

    I wonder who will be leader next..

    Ray the old dog who brought the party glory in the past.

    Cranbrook the guy who can't commit to the party.

    Kay the gal who is the epitamy of the Islington set.

    Or somebody else since apparently Labour will put newbies in senior positions.

    I'm not running. I won't say who I'm backing but apparently, they'd be a very good leader.

    I am officially running for Leader of the Labour Party, and I will make the Labour Party represent the working class again!

    When I take over the Labour Party, I will take back what was stolen from this country and destroy those who wronged me! I will lay waste to the EU and burn their institutions to the ground!

    Every TSR Labour leader who ever lived chose to keep our borders open and to let more people in.
    But I am not a leftist.
    I will not chose to keep our borders open.
    I choose to bring immigration back to normality!
    I will ask more of you than any TSR Labour leader has ever asked of his members.
    Will you send our armed forces across the English Channel?
    Will you kill my enemies in their eurocratic suits and tear down their glass buildings?
    Will you give me back the United Kingdom,
    the gift the Supreme Leader of UKIP promised me before the UKIP National Conference?

    Are you with me?
    Now
    and always?

    Out of those two (Blair and Corbyn) which is it? You support a strong military strategy like invading Iraq or support a pacificistic stance?

    Corbyns not a communist BTW. Why EXACTLY is he vile? That strikes me as personal?

    I'm sorry but he is a blatant communist . He wants to give Argentina the Falklands and wants the complete redistribution of wealth . Funnily enough the majority of the Labour party don't like him

    Is he? Does he support banning all private industries?

    He sympathised with Falklands belonging to Argentina. While its 99% voting yes he won't change.

    Based on what? The vote which Corbyn resoundingly one?
