  1. Did you get another cat after Louis? I'm thinking of getting another already.
  2. We got our old rescue cat put down last night. She was an undetermined age, probably knocking on 20, with hyperthyroidism. I didn't want her, the wife did, but I went along with it. She was incredibly skinny, with a terrible coat, she wouldn't let us groom her and would hiss if we touched her back or body. She shat and wee'd on the carpet regularly, she yowled in the mornings which woke us up and would pester us for food. Her eyes would regularly get mild infections and her fur would get everywhere, which I am allergic to. She would beg for food and then leave it, would only eat the most expen
  3. It's looking increasingly like Kier Starmer and Angela Rayner will win leader and deputy leadership race. I'm not so found of Rayner, I'd much rather Ian Murray but I can stomach Starmer or Nandy. RLB would be an absolute disaster.
  4. This is me, joined and lapsed because of Corbyn. Joined again to vote, and be a part of a better future. That's the hope.
  5. It's not that difficult to see it, part of the Brexit rhetoric was this strange sort of bleary-eyed colonial inspired patriotism. You know, painting Britain as the force of 1940 that stood alone in the world against the Nazis, the evil oppressor of Europe. Plenty of the Tory MP Brexit doughnuts were doing it. Where is it that it comes from, I don't know? Perhaps it's born out of the reality of Britain no longer being a world power anymore. Its hard for anyone to argue otherwise, so they invoke ideas of colonialism when Britain ruled the waves and disliked the French. I think it's a
  6. He's the sort of player you would expect a team like us to have.
  7. I have to say, it's a bit of a political risk celebrating implementing a political policy that has divided the country so much. It'll hardly get remainders on side having a light show to celebrate a moment they hoped would never happen. It'll be used again the government in the hard times ahead. It just goes to shows how Johnson and his cronies have stoked division and shown contempt for huge swathes of the country.
  8. I think you're right to some extent and the distinction is important. They're a coalition of socialist ideals, but social democracy is more likely to succeed with the electorate than their current policy platform. The Labour leadership candidates are being coy about their ideas for policy positions in the future (apart from 10/10 RLB) and I do sense there will be a move in the right direction under Starmer. When asked about nationalisation recently he used the probation service as his first primary example of a service that needs to be nationalised and then said something about the railwa
  9. Woaa, I suggest you check the demographic information. That is categorically not going to happen. The demographics that Labour struggle with are not going away. To win an election they need to gain a good amount of votes from socially conservative, but economically left voters (old gits that voted Labour in the past, but don't anymore) and they need to win back all of the votes of socially liberal, but more centrist economic voters that they lost to the Lib Dems. LabourTogether are in the process of an election review, that sounds about as non partisan as Labour can manage, it'll be inte
  10. Jesus wept, they don't learn do they? They're projecting Corbyn's image, ideological purity and even his song onto RLB. The guy that just got thumped in an election. Mind you, she's encouraged them by giving him a 10/10 for Labours biggest loss since the 1930s. More of the same means more of the same. As bewildering as it is to have to point out, but more of the same, means more division, a fractured party and further loses. I describe RLB as the 'nightmare' choice. Probably a bit disingenuous of me because Emily Thornberry would be worse, but she'll never get it.
  11. Spot the savvy operator. Starmer and Nandy are absolutely streets ahead of the others in terms of competency.
  12. I don't think rejoin will be the priority of many to be honest, and I say that as part of the now core Labour demographic who voted for remain In fact, as an ardent remainer, I would swerve any candidate that advocates rejoining at this stage. It would indicate an accute lack of political savvy. Brexit has proved to be an issue that Labour cannot win on. Trying to replay the arguements of the last 4 years after losing the argument twice would just serve to further entrench the losses Labour made in traditional homelands and annoy remainers (such as myself!) that accept begrudgingly
  13. From my obsessive following of this campaign so far, Lisa Nandy is by far the only candidate that truly understands the significance of their loss and the change in their electoral demographic. I like her talk about devolution and social Conservatism. As a social liberal who lives around social conservatives I get it too. If Labour don't broaden their church again and do it quick, they're in real danger of become a footnote in history. I'm not sure that the 'the far left' of the party really get her though, she voted in favour of Brexit which to many ignorant members makes he
  14. I thought this was so **** retarded that it was fake. But it isn't fake. The President of a great nation is saying that he will instruct the military to act "...in a disproportionate manner".
