Wasted their money I reckon. The only thing Corbyn will deliver them is ineffectual opposition.

Also Hunt has been one of the targets for Momentum. Not only does he stand to lose his seat anyway but he has to deal with the Corbyn lot giving him abuse for the next 3 years.

Yes I heard one of them on LBC on Friday ranting on about purging the party of people like Hunt using the sort of offensive language I recall from my higher education days in a well known hotbed of student lefty lunacy, intimidation and nastiness. These people really are locked in the past so it's no surprise they like Corbyn.

Except that is to fund the entire party across the country. Compare to £100,000 just for Corbyn.

Quite...
... and to think some folks kid themselves Corbyn's cronies are a breath of fresh air in politics. Some of us have seen and heard it all before.

Of course, they'll come up with excuses for the failures, ineptitude, cronyism and nepotism just like they always did - same old, same old...

Re: Corbyn's kerfuffle

The Labour Party is "in the hands of urban leftists given to ideological extremes with only fringe appeal".
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-38677632

Quote:
That isn't an assertion about today's politics. It was the verdict of the US Central Intelligence Agency on Labour back in 1985, in a memo for the agency's director on the early phase of Neil Kinnock's leadership.
This memo is one of millions of the CIA's historical records which have just been made available online. Previously researchers had to actually visit the US National Archives in Maryland in order to access this database of declassified documents.
The records reveal the deep level of concern inside the CIA about the strength of the Left within Labour in the early 1980s, a political force which the agency regarded as anti-American.
Some things never change eh?

Re: Corbyn's kerfuffle

Another apparent U-turn to add to an already large collection. Time will tell how accurate this article is

Jeremy Corbyn backs down on vow to force Labour MPs to vote in favour of Brexit

In an apparent U-turn, sources denied Mr Corbyn will force his MPs to vote with the Government and instead claimed that the leader is still making up his mind.

Nice quip by Piers Morgan (yes I know) on Question Time last night:

Emily Thornberry: We're not in government at the moment ...
Morgan: You're not in opposition either...

Priceless.

More trouble 't mill:

Quote:
SENIOR Labour figures fear their party will come fourth in the crucial Copeland by-election next month.

The disaster prediction came as Jeremy Corbyn was snubbed over his choice for the poll’s candidate.

In an embarrassment for the under fire Opposition Leader, his preferred pick for the poll next month was rejected.

Party members in the Cumbria constituency instead opted for local councillor and former doctor Gillian Troughton on Thursday night, instead of Corbyn-backing union activist Rachel Holliday.

But in what would be a far bigger blow, fears are now growing among party grandees that it could even finish finish behind the Tories, UKIP and the Lib Dems.
