I AM POOR!
Well Jeremy Corbyn cared about you
He was never gonna get fucking elected though!
At least he should get an easier ride from the press. That'll help win over those Brexit-voting Northerners who went Tory... Right?
Diane gone , but Emily Thornberry to stay on the front bench in an as yet undisclosed position.
QUEEN I imagine.
Shadow Minister for Entertaining the Gays
New appointments are pretty reassuring. A shadow chancellor who believes in renationalising railways, cheeky Nandy as Foriegn and a home secretary who is well versed in transformative labour governments of past.
And nothing big for Burgon or RLB, which frankly I think is a good thing.
Can the poll question be corrected?
Oh, I see...
Frankly at a minimum I hope Burgon gets SHOT OUT OF A CANNON after all this
All of this has given me some degree of hope.
Queen Emily survives
I wonder how her HEDGE is looking in these stressful times, pruned to within an inch of its life no doubt!
Nice to see the majority of Moopy in agreement for once.
For the record i'm entirely on the fence for SIRKIER at the moment. He wasn't my preferred candidate, but he has potential to be good (or shit). His initial appointments have been positive but i'll withhold judgement for now.
Glad both he and Barry are gone. Both utterly useless.
Emily, and RLB both in the cabinet, Ed Milliband back, and QoL Doctor Rosena made Shadow Minister of Mental Health.
I have say I'm enjoying this news team. Especially a female shadow chancellor.
I'm here for Ed having another shot in ten years when the public is done with its Tory party stockholm syndrome moment of whatever. If he's lucky he can withstand any fallout from Starmer's torrential loss in the next election, swoop into the vacated position, be seen as and liked for the charming chap he is and win a narrow election victory in 2029, before it all goes to shit again and the Tories are resurrected four years later like a phoenix from the ashes of the poor.
Pleased for RLB and Ed.
Clearly Angela Rayner should be our next Labour Prime Minister but whatever.
Thangam Debbonaire, Shadow Housing Secretary
Ed 2.0 is great, I love him.
I'm a bit sad Dawn Butler's been cast back to the back benches. Her background eye-rolling was always my favourite part of PMQs.
But I guess SirKeir wanted a fresh start and WHO COULD BLAME HIM?
Yay for RedEd.
Sorry, Red Ed? Don't you mean JUST ANOTHER BLAIRITE RIGHT WINGER?
And none for Jess Phillips. Bye.
When have I said that?
Oh I wasn't aiming that at you! Just reflecting some of the sour grapes nonsense I've seen online today.
i don't know much about him (have got that massive newstatesman piece open and unread) but i watched his inauguration speech (in front of a wardrobe?) and i'm still in two minds. he didn't give me a hard-on for sure. not even a semi.
Enjoying what now?
Thank god we finally having a strong opposition at this time of national crisis, opposing calls to oppose the government's failures.
Some of the stuff that’s coming out in these leaks about the behaviour of the anti-Corbyn core during the last two elections is so demented I can’t quite fathom it.
Yep, for all that some people here don't want to hear that 'they were all out to get him' etc... how is a party leader supposed to get anything done in those circumstances?
I'm just horrified by it, and quite furious.
My fave is the WhatsApp chats of senior Labour staffers being devestated that the Tories had lost their majority on the night of the '17 election.
And them calling such EXTREMIST policies as higher corporation tax and rail nationalisation 'trots doing what trots do'.
And Sadiq Kahn and Andy Burnham being seen as too far left.
My least fave bit is the bit where they make fun of Diane Abbot because they found her crying in the bathrooms... And then tip off Channel 4 news about it.
Considering Corbyn was apparently running STALINIST PURGES, these shy Tory cunts were able to stay on the payroll actively sabotaging the party, diverting funds to their preferred candidates, and leaking negative stories to the press for years.
Honestly, people who dedicate their lives to politics really are by and large ABSOLUTE FREAKS, so this doesn't really surprise me at all.
It is pathetic, but ultimately I don't think stuff like this is the main reason Corbyn failed. There's probably wings of this dungeons and dragons nonsense working against every political leader. It's just more pronounced because of how widely and extremely hated he was.
