    No one has heard of her, and she's another Blair-worshiping neocon sociopath. She should be thrown down a well, not given leadership of a party.

    She isn't a Blairite on Europe, she turned into a nasty little Brexiteer, especially interesting because she is German and had at all times previously been a consistent critical Remainer. However, to be fair to her, she's always been an intelligent politician who could express ideas and seem interested in real debates and not just soundbites.

    No it won't. Jeremy Corbyn is a nice lad but he is completely useless.

    I guess you would like a one party state. The government needs a strong opposition.

    No , UKIP can be the opposition. Or the lib dems. Maybe even the SNP.
    The lib dems threaten our majority more than labour
    All have proved to be a better opposition than the labour party.

    Gisela Stuart is one of those rare politicians who is going tobe utterly objectionable to someone no matter what you believe.

    She's a German Labour MP, who is anti EU, pro-LGBT, voted for Iraq War, for student fees and supported George W. Bush.

    There is almost no-one outside her own constituency who would vote for her, and she doesn't exactly have a huge majority there. You can't have a leader who is only marginal in their own seat. It's a fair bet if Corbyn clings on till the next GE, she'll have lost her seat and won't be around to take over afterwards.

    She will keep her seat and she'll double her majority

    Those views appear rather sound in my opinion. And if Labour wants to win the next election they need to appeal to voters like myself who fit into the higher end working class/lower end middle class bracket.

    She'll be out by at least 3000. Pre-Blair, her seat was relatively safe Tory territory, which she reversed, but has been pretty much shrinking since 1997. She's gone from a majority of 5000 to under 1500 in 2010. She increased her majority in 2015 on a swing from LibDem to Labour. Also, the UKIP vote went from a few hundred to several thousand.

    To me, it's just more of the same Labour insanity. The whole reason Gisela Stuart is around is because she's a centre ground politician who is on some Tory turf. This is how they won elections and effected their change - not with hard-left lunatics like Corbyn, McDonnell and Abbott, who believe some things that even Castro didn't.

    Fortunately, it doesn't look like there's any immediate prospect of the current Labour Party changing. They hate Blair, but can't seem to get it through their heads, that since Callahgan, Blair is the only Labour leader to have won an election - and he won three. What does that tell you? Certainly not that the British public are looking for a drastic shift, not just to the left, but to Marxist-Leninism.
