Starmer new labour leader
The labour party destroyed Corbyn by coming up with policies that were either financial pie in the sky or the electorate didn't think were important . As I said before concentrating on the rail network and the NHS might have worked but the scatter gun approach just made too much seem unachievable. Corbyn was unelectable and if labour had a half decent leader johnson would have been blown out the water , His stance on brexit didnae help eitherThe torys destroyed Corbyn by repeatedly pointing out his perceived weaknesses, even when they were on about other stuff. They always managed to get a dig in. On the other hand I always thought Corbyn and Co always gave in incompetent torys an easy ride.
Labour and the other opposition parties now have even more ammunition to constantly remind the electorate how shite the torys have been all these years.
They need to do that and they need to be relentless.
The ballot opens today for the Labour leadership contest. Keir Starmer is currently the favourite, based on an opportunistic campaign with hollow promises of ‘unity’ and ‘electability’. Members must not be fooled by this wolf in sheep’s clothing.www.socialist.net
New Labour leader ‘Sir’ Keir Starmer has been notable by his absence in recent weeks. Yet he has earnt plaudits from establishment commentators for providing ‘credible opposition’. No wonder - he is bankrolled by big business.www.socialist.net
Yet his questions asked yesterday in PMQ's were the best asked in years...
As the Torys had a mantra to dis Corbyn at every turn and showed the seeds of doubt in the electorates mind Sir Keir and Co could do worse than do a similar job on the Torys and their handling of the NHS.I watched it. Never laid a hand on Rabb. He could have savaged Rabb and his Tory chums on their NHS record over the past 12 years. Perhaps this Knight of the Realm has indeed an eye on a position in a National Government. He should not forget the hammering that was handed out in Scotland and not recovered from when Lord Darling of Roulanish was a Director of the disastrous Better Together Campaign. What is it with right wing Labour Sirs and Lord, solicitors?

It was something that nice chap Corbyn and his chums never managed.
I know its probably pie in the sky but I'd like to think we all have a common enemy in the Torys and that's who we all should be fighting, together. As long as the Labour Party is fighting itself that war is not going to be won.You do realise it was not just the Tories, Daily attacks by the Press,Tom Watson and Blairite MP's attempting coups, which Starmer supported by the way. The assassination of Corbyn was as the leaked document shows, went to the very top with Blairite officials scandalously actively working not only to remove him but for a Labour defeat in the 2017 election.
