You never see proper leftists with national flags, do you?
Not quite which is why the dockers wrangled triple time for lowering their cranes for Churchill’s coffin on a Saturday afternoon. They didn’t vote for Enoch to run their union but Communist Party veteran Jack Dash.
Dunno if it's just me, but there seems to have been a notable upswing in Starmer's output - tweets and video clips and the like, and also in theme. Much more direct Tory attacks, callbacks to when labour made demands, and also notably tweets of support for strikers at British Gas, pay rises for NHS staff and the like.
I'm starting to suspect the plan is to build up, but (for now) to not appear to be the party who'll wade in and reverse everything immediately, because that could push away people sick of brexit (in the legislative sense). What's needed now is for people to become furious with brexit because they were mis-sold it. THEN will be the best time to capitalise and make a point that we can have many of the benefits back *without* rejoining the EU, and the only reason we don't have them is the Tories decided we couldn't.Tubby Isaacs wrote: ↑Sun Jan 10, 2021 1:21 pmHe's scrapped EU freedom of movement, having said that he wouldn't. Had Jez won and renegotiated his Brexit, it would have doubtless been chucked anyway, and it's probably necessary electorally. But these U turns all mount up and feed into the "slippery lawyer" stuff.
I wonder if it'll be necessary for Starmer to step aside and Rayner to take over to get over the line.
Disappointing. Is paying the bills a worry only for "families"?He said families had been treated as an "afterthought" by the government during the pandemic, adding that Labour would become the "party of the family" under his leadership.
Law of the ridiculous reverse. Is any party "anti-family", not counting according to its opponents?AOB wrote: ↑Mon Jan 11, 2021 1:54 pmCovid-19: Drop 'absurd' 5% council tax increase - Starmer

"Party of the family" seems a bit exclusive to me.
