"You’ve had them"
You know that's not true - you actually said I wasn't worth respond to
Try again
Why should we support a leader who sacks a senior minister for an "antisemitic tweet" everybody here has said isn't antisemitic - give me a reason o point me to an answer
That action has split the Labor Party and looks like losing the support of The Trades Unions - Labour's main contact with working people in Britain - the founders of the Labour Party and it's mainstay
Not only this, of course; in doing what he did, Starmer has implicated Labour in the antisemitism accusations by mor or less admitting that there is one
In what way is Starmer's behaviour in refusing to sack Steve Reed (for exactly the same behaviour as Long-Bailey) any different from Johnson's refusing to sack Cummings ?
We've slagged off Johnson yet you want us to support Starmer
Your starter for ten - without the childish name-calling, if possible

PFR somewhat childishly compered mt to a "silverback" - I'd be extremely flattered to be put up beside that magnificent creature if I took anything he said seriously any more
One of the great characteristics of that beautiful animal is it's dignity, calmness and its preparedness to fight to defend what it considers important
A little thin on the ground here
