Well the corbyn interview about the Canterbury MP and his support for her was ok
but the interruption by some party activist shows where the party is leading
even its own leader doesnt have a free hand
surely as leader he has to tough out these questions
ALL POSTS ARE MY OWN PERSONAL VIEWS
Been watching an excellent new release on Netflix this evening all about Adolf Eichmann who was the architect of the final solution. As we know Mossad agents spirited him away from his bolthole in Argentina to Jerusalem to stand trial for his war crimes. I never realised that Jezza was his only character witness at the trial.

Wealthy Britons are downsizing to smaller properties before moving abroad and shifting their money offshore in fear of a government under Jeremy Corbyn, estate agents claim. Pressures on the precarious high-end property market have increased after fears that a Labour government would raise taxes on the rich, enforce share giveaways to employees and so cause the economy to slow down. Estate agents dealing with luxury properties have said that they are seeing clients sell their expansive London homes to rent smaller residences in preparation to leave.
Trevor Abrahmsohn, the founder of Glentree Estates, an agency that sells homes to the super-rich in northwest London, said: “The fear of a Jeremy Corbyn government has led to our lettings market going berserk. This is quite simply because, if you rent, then you can’t be affected by a collapse in property price growth that many expect if Corbyn comes to power. “I had an inquiry this morning for someone to rent for £40,000 per week. “People want to live in England, they want a piece of England — but they don’t want to risk buying here, and we hear time and time again that their biggest fear is an extreme left-wing government.” Brendan Roberts, the head of sales at Aylesford International, an estate agency, said: “I have a client, a banker, who has sold his home in Chelsea for £17.5 million. He is now renting a modest pied-a-terre in London but he doesn’t plan to stay here much and is looking to move to America.
“He has said that he can run his business from anywhere. He has said he is keeping a watching brief on what is happening with Corbyn.” Ashley Crossley, a wealth management partner at Baker Mckenzie, the law firm, said that Labour Party threats to increase tax rates were causing some of his overseas clients to question their future in Britain. “When wealthy people are facing uncertainty over Brexit and politicians are criticising them for not paying their fair share, they are starting to ask whether the UK is the right place for them if Corbyn wins,” he said. A senior figure in the City, who did not want to be named, said: “Every single private client firm is backed up with people trying to get their cash out of the UK. It is the single biggest driver of trade right now and has been for the last three months.” After the Financial Times reported that the ultra-wealthy were preparing to move assets abroad John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, issued a warning. He said: “Society will not tolerate the rich refusing to shoulder their fair share of responsibilities. We will take all the necessary action to make sure they do.”
signs of things to come.

It gets progressively worse for Jezza a front bench spokesperson is employing a convicted drug dealer who happens to be her son in the Commons with no sanction from above.
One word from Jezza and they do as they like the latest from Ms Thornberry is that a second Referendum is a distinct possibility.

Now we have Kier Starmer talking of a second vote, the vast majority of Labour voters want one too but Jezza knows best.
The majority of MPs don’t. So it ain’t gonna happen. Fact.
I’m worried that Theresa May is deliberately trying to appear to want to implement Brexit while in fact, as a committed remainer, she is trying to leave us with no option but to withdraw our A50 notice and remain in the EU.
"Themajority of MPs don’t. So it ain’t gonna happen. Fact. "
The point being badly missed here, the thread is about the labour leader and his control of the party.
its all in the Brexit mix howard. jezza wants this Cruella wants that, and every body else is jumping the band wagon of choise.
Howard I was answering your point in #909. My point was that Parliament would have to legislate for a second vote and it’s not going to get enough support.
peter, support is growing by the day.
Not among MPs Brian.
peter, times are changing. 1 mp has resigned this morning, the northen Ireland that is/was.
Is it my imagination or is Corbyn not in front of the tv cameras as much as he used to be? I wonder if his advisers have told him to keep quiet when the media are around.
I try to be neutral and polite but it is hard at times.
I suppose there's little point heckling when the comedians on stage are filling the hall with laughter.

Fascinating. We're in such a total mess that anything could possibly happen, even this.
