Because he's a centrist and the centrists always swing right, every fucking time. If he literally can't prefer a Corbyn government to a hard right Tory government, he should fuck off out the party. At no point in the past has the left of the party (as a movement) ever said the same of Blair/the centre of the party compared to the Tories.davidjay wrote: ↑Tue Apr 09, 2019 5:49 pmI think that if I were in Magic Gwampy's position I would be asking myself why it is that the most successful election-winning Labour politician of all time would rather have Boris Johnson in charge than me, and then I'd wonder if he doesn't want me then who the fuck does? And I'd then console myself with all those keyboard warriors and three quid Trots telling me that he's a war criminal and I am the Truth, the Way and the Life.

Are you nearer to Luciana Berger or Jeremy Corbyn? Luciana Berger
Are you nearer to Anna Soubry or Jeremy Corbyn? Jeremy Corbyn
What a surprise - in context it's totally different. He doesn't want a hard Tory PM like Boris, but because he recognises the immense danger of brexit he doesn't want Corbyn as PM pushing it though either. It was not a simple binary choice of 'do you want a tory or a labour PM' where he chose a Tory one. He basically said they're both shit options until such time as the danger of brexit has passed or been locked down. And he's right. And that's because both Boris and Jezza want brexit. One out of greed, one out of arrogance. Both out of indifference to the harm it will do because it advances their personal agendas.
