And l was going to go straight to source, but I know Bastani raises the blood pressure round here...
A council by election in Leicester obviously proves Labour will win the next election hands down.
Funny how Bastani neglected to mention the Labour vote percentage went down or they didn’t even field a candidate in all the other by elections yesterday. Or that the increased vote in the one they held (not won - held) is likely due to the by election being caused by the very recent death of the popular incumbent.

The parallels between the brexit project and the Corbyn project are quite something when you realise. Get a surprise result. Consolidate power. Use language such as 'traitor' against your opponents. Get people in key positions. Rig the system in your favour. Fuck up relentlessly. Blame the people who lost/who aren't in control for all your problems and defeats, and claim that if only they ceased all criticism it would all be wonderful.bluebellnutter wrote: ↑Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:22 amSo if this would be Corbyn's position in the event he gets what he wants in a GE before March, what happens when this fails? The complete disconnect between Corbyn and reality on this is mind-boggling, any decent leader in his position would be saying "this isn't working, my plan B is this realistic option (e.g. Norway, Remain)". To simply say "We'd paint the unicorns red and it'll definitely work" is just nuts.
Does beg the question that if Corbyn did get to power and things inevitably went pear-shaped, would his supporters blame remainers or centrists?
