in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

It's certainly more democratic because it has an elected second chamber.

What are elites anyway?

I'd suggest in practical terms in this country they are the landed classes and their enablers in Parliament

Corbyn pretty obviously isn't a member of any UK elite he is a fairly normal member of the middle classes of his generation - Grammar School eductaed from a middling sort of family of no great wealth.

Theresa May isn't a member of the elite by birth, she has a similar sort of background to Corbyn.

But Theresa May seems to have set herself up as a sort of tired old Marine Le Pen lookalike/soundalike.

I wonder how this venture into the extremist right of politics is going to play out but it seems remarkably inept to claim you are setting up in the centre ground of UK politics whilst at the same time literally basing some of your social policy on chapter 2 of Mein Kampf.

That is asking the Overton Window to open very wide indeed.

She seems all at sea a floundering around paying with forces she cannot possibly control - racism, xenophobia, base hatreds of all sorts - for paltry political gains. She had a honeymoon period going along nicely and an opposition in disarray so the need to let loose the hounds of National Socialism across the UK can only be due to her own personal insecurity and lack of intellectual and moral fitness for the role of PM. It has certainly gone down like a bowl of sick with intelligent people on the right and in business.

Basically she has blown it big time trying to out smoke the kippers for extremist madness whilst at the same time trying to claim she is is on the side of the workers.

Sounds a lot like Hitler, I wonder who is advising her and whether Len McClusky is worried he is being measured up for a concentration camp :)

Even the EU is more democratic than we are, so you are setting the bar low there

What a bunch of maroons


It has to be said the PLP are the funniest thing I have seen in politics for years, probably since I was at Uni and got to see the Young Conservatives up close

Indeed. They are so completely out-of-touch with those they allegedly represent it's almost funny.

Almost.

How do you think the people Labour need voting for them will see it?

And what will they think of Diane Abbott as potential Home Secretary?

I don't just mean the members here.

I don't like Diane Abbott - she's a hypocrite.

However, I'd take her over Obergruppenführer Rudd every day, and twice on Sunday, thanks.

Fair enough but I was thinking bigger picture outside of the membership.

Considering who the actual Home Secretary is I think anyone criticising Dianne abbott needs to have long hard look at themselves.
