Labour Party Thread: Things Can Only Get Worse

The Labour right view parliament as basically a finishing school for their PE degrees where they get to make contacts and plump out their CVs with handwavey initiative stuff so they can land some plum job in the private sector afterwards. Most of them have no real interest in power beyond the vice-like grip they have to maintain on the party to make it possible, so coasting into a comfortable L against the Tories is fine by them.

It’s why I have the tiniest amount of respect for the CUK-TIG people because as soon as the party wasn’t about that anymore they were out the door, they didn’t stay to continue fucking the membership over and over like Starmie and Watson did. And look at them all now: After the comical, abject failure of their political careers, where it was revealed they were all cretins without a single intelligent thought in their heads who nobody would vote for given the choice, they all breezed easily into PR and industry roles. They’re professional losers, every single one.

Feels more like Starmer is just letting him get on with it, everything Burnham is doing is good for labour in the north at the minute, why interrupt? Also, K-dog doesn’t want to upset the centrists he’s targeting elsewhere, so it benefits him to keep out of it. That’s my interpretation of what he is doing, not saying I agree with it

Labour might as well open it’s own online casino at this point

At this point (and I think this is something that’s changed since 2015, with stuff like the outcome of the Hillsborough inquiry, and being mayor), Andy Burnham is everything that people who supported Karl Starmer claimed him to be in January.

As noted in the Coronavirus thread, the likes of Starmer and Khan should be giving full support to Burnham on this, not the weak platitudes they’re offering at the moment.

Although I have absolutely no doubt Corbyn’s response would’ve been 1,000x better than Borises (purely because he’d have invested in a public tracing system, probably not perfect but at least as good as elsewhere) there would undoubtedly have been actual Malcolm riots

Reckon if Corbyn had done any opposition to the government in the way Burham has he’d smeared as an anti-science QAnon plandemic guy. Kier could fully support Burham and there’d be nothing to lose cause nobody would do that.

Keep trying to put this pronunciation together, the double ll’s make the guttural sound, and the y is pronounced I, so it’s like ghhlogir. Good name imho.
