Labour – Still kicking lumps out of each other whilst backing the Tories Brexit plans

The BBC has the story – see its web site via the link above

I don’t know about you but I see Tom Watson as one of Labour’s many problems rather than someone who is trying to unite his Party.

As Deputy Leader he has gone along with Labour backing the Tories over Brexit so I rest my case.

When on earth will Labour realise it is the official opposition in Parliament rather than a Tory lap dog?

And yet another MP resigns – Labour’s Tristram Hunt

Well if you were a right wing Labour Party member still clinging on to the view that Labour is not in deep difficulties this latest resignation should be a huge wake up call.

Having said that I take that with the vast majority of Labour’s members being left wing these days they will probably have seen him as a ‘Red Tory’ so may well be quite happy he is leaving their fold?

The Momentum is clearly with Labour’s left as the right are seemingly starting to give up the fight.

My Jeremy Corbyn moment(um)

85 r

I had a Jeremy Corbyn moment (or is that Momentum?) today.

I got on a Merseyrail train at Bootle Strand Station about 1.40pm travelling towards Southport and there were no seats.

Well there was one that I spotted when we got to Seaforth & Litherland Station but I pointed it out to an elderly lady.

At Waterloo the train significantly emptied out; wonder where folks were going to?

It’s now up to Merseyrail to say that I am not telling the whole truth I suppose:-)))))

Labour – Comradery NOT

The Huffington Post has the story on its web site – see link above

A definition of Comradery is a feeling of trust, a bond created by a shared goal or experience — you don’t have to be best friends with everyone in the group to know you have their support. But there’s not much comradery around in the Labour Party these days!

With thanks to KP for spotting this story.

And this more Merseyside centric Labour story that the Liverpool Echo is running follows that one up nicely, or not so nicely, depending on your opinion:-

Trying to be reasonable about this, if Labour is to become a truly socialist party then surely all its right wing MP’s should be deselected, should they not?
