I'll miss the tragi-comedy from our local Momentumites if they implode
Richard is the new Nye Bevan. I first realised that when I saw him defending Jeremy Corbyn in Parliament Square on the night of the chicken coup 27 June 2016. He is steadfast, utterly genuine and should be leader.

Burgon the new Bevan? Utterly fucking clueless :lol:

Do they still have a big influence within your local CLP? I remember you being especially scathing about them last year.

They tried to stitch up the nomination meeting for Rebecca L-B and cancelled the meeting when they got wind they didn’t have the numbers. They were lucky to have a legitimate excuse because of gales. There was little interest in rescheduling as all sides knew the show was over for Corbyn’s dauphins.

The Left at the time weren't very keen on the period "before 40 years of neoliberalism". Not just the immediate "crisis" period, where everywhere had problems, but the longer post-war era, in which they saw major national decline, in need of economic planning, nationalism and protectionism.

So it's funny to see that era looked back on as a golden age by the same sort of people.

I'm reminded of that old Doctor WHo quote ''There never was a 'Golden Age', Mike. It's all an illusion'.

Classic Trots. :lol: :lol: :lol: Say what you will about the right, it knows how to get behind a movement/idea 100x better than the Socialists, each of whom has to be leader of their own mini-cult.
Yeah. There used to be a guy exactly like that who used to post regularly on here - well, before your time, read some (may I call you "read some"?). Complete twat. Thought the sun shone out of Corbyn's fundament, and was really big on being a part of the Trots' personality cult. Even pretended to be a doctor. Oh, how we used to laugh! I sometimes wonder what became of him. I expect he's in one of the myriad mini-cults now.

lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol , eh? It's great to have a laugh.
