Can't we reserve this historical re-enactment for the entire Johnson and Cummings families? (Incidentally, somebody chastised me elsewhere and said "for all you know, he's probably a very good father" regarding Johnson)

I wonder how much Corbyn's handlers were in fact reining him in, and now he is unrestrained we are seeing him for true and real. He seems to be morphing into his brother.

And yes, we see what the report says and let him answer it, whilst remaining neutral and disinterested. But not uninterested.
He’s not going to spout this sort of rubbish in an interview with Andrew Neil or Peston but now he doesn’t have to deal with the ‘fake news MSM’. Iranian Press TV and Morning Star allow him to talk any old bollocks without being challenged.

Given we all know he tried to deny one of his kids was even his, I'm going to call that one out as bollocks. He's likely the same sort of father as he is everything else. Wobbles in, says something funny, and tries to buy off disagreement and upset with promises he then fails to deliver on, before eventually fucking off entirely to do it all again in a different role.

This is disappointingly poor from Oborne. Most of the “arguments” appear to be of the calibre of “they said he was one thing, but he wasn’t” and left at that with little to no facts given, and there are vast chunks of his catalogue of errors simply not mentioned at all. Still, I’m sure his fans will be delighted.

I've had a bottle of merlot so I'm not at my sharpest but I'm baffled at this piece. Is Oborne writing it as a casual observer free of party politics now? It wasn't so long ago he was criticizing Theresa May's efforts to get Brexit over the line because it was embarassing the Tories.

My inebriated befuddlement aside, this is a narrative I see persisting in corners of the internet. The centrist conspiracy against Corbyn, and how all these "woke" millenials can't trust Labour again because the right-wing part of the party couldn't stand the idea of a socialist PM and had to oust him.

I would very much like to shut them up but I don't know how.

He was never given a chance.
Losing two GEs was just a dress rehearsal was it? There’s too much laughable nonsense in this article to unpack. Oborne spends too much time on the ale. The only thing the authors are right about is that Tom Bower writes shoddy hatchet job biographies.

Corbyn was vilified as a peace movement campaigner when he wasn’t. Liberationist politics is militarist balance of power strategy.

Blairite centrist tuna melt James O'Brien just said on the radio that Marcus Rashford has done more to help the poor in 2 days than Magic Grandad has in 40 years.

That'll get the jam jars rattling with impotent rage :lol:

A non-violent sit in and then a damning petition passed around to be signed in organic home-grown strawberry jam to represent the blood of Venezuelan farmers.
