I find myself agreeing with Jim as well. My view is that it is 100% certain that Starmer would lose the next election in any case. I'll fight for him, of course, as a party member, but to me, even though I'll have to pretend it isn't, it's a lost cause. So that doubly means that I shouldn't be ditching my principles in order to pander to the Tory press and right-wing voters (and the pro-Israel lobby). If I were to do that I'd have nothing left after the next election.

"Btw.. I did warn that banning right wing members,
might probably lead to habitually argumentative mudcatters turning their invective
inwards onto mates on their own side..."

Well you can say that but you can't demonstrate cause and effect there. Perhaps you're saying it because you want to be right. I haven't particularly noticed any change, except for the far calmer atmosphere in these threads now than you-know-who has been banished.
