It’s slightly confused them hasn’t it, that there are Labour Party members they don’t interact with.
If they were confused by that, think how bewildered they’ll be now Labour have won it!
Ignoring it and concentrating on where we didn't do well.

SWP were out in Lancaster today. We were eating lunch outside a pub, near their stall.

General response was that Johnson is a cunt, but give Corbyn a rest, he isn't coming back, and Starmer needs to stop fucking about andput the boot in.

This from students, tweedy country types, old and young, all sorts.

That’s a home crowd, though.
Mark Thomas cites Alexi Sayle as his comedy inspiration, he's defiantly a Corbynista.

I increasingly get the impression that Corbyn is being ill served by his fanclub. Most people would probably by now have developed either a grudging respect or mild level of affection for him having forgotten the worst of his reign, were it not for the constant background whine from the usual suspects that he was actually the best thing ever and we’re a load of Tory bastards for not unquestioningly supporting his every decision, which in turn is a reminder of all the reasons why he is actually a man of selective morals, questionable intelligence and judgement, and a big fan of cronyism and nepotism.

He’ll never achieve elder statesman status because his own inability to reel in his most frothing acolytes means we now have constant reminders of how very fucking awful he was. Which is poetic justice I suppose.

I've just finished Jess Phillips' book on being an MP, and she's pretty scathing about Corbyn, as you might expect. She points out that because we've come to associate expenses with fraud, we look on him as a saint for not claiming any. However, that just means he lives close enough to Westminster to go home every night, and his office don't do much work. For any MP from a distance outside London, having a flat or hotel room is a necessity - not everyone's taking the piss.

She goes on, saying that for such a campaigning MP, he's done very little over the years to get any legislation passed, save for a few early day motions , which are on about the same level as tame PMQs - lowball shout-outs aimed at getting you in the local rag. Yes, he does rallies, and he does them well, but they're generally easy gigs. Actually effecting change requires - shock horror - dealing with people you disagree with, and making deals.

He’s not a campaigning MP, he’s a complaining MP. More than happy to have a moan on anyone’s behalf or turn up for a photo, soundbite or to give his usual speech, especially on a pet subject. Remarkably thin on evidence he’s ever done much in the way of hard work to effect change.
