Whose left?

Post by kevinchess1 » Mon Jun 27, 2016 2:20 pm

With the sacking and resignations from the Shadow cabinet, is there anyone left to run the opposition
Bye the bye, I'm not happy with the term 'Jexit!' :thumbdown:
I think the media will come to regretix :lol:

That's difficult to answer since any reply could be out of date before we finish typing... an hour ago he had lost...

9 shadow ministers
19 shadow cabinet
7 parliamentary private secretaries

but 3 more have resigned since then... just go Jeremy...

Support from a few hundred thousand party members isn't much of a legacy compared to his ineffectual leadership. He is hopeless as leader of the opposition and his position is surely untenable. Clinging on until he splits or destroys the party isn't going to do the nation any favours.

There's something about him that just makes me think of The Wombles.

If there is another election Corbyn will win but only if it is for a leadership one. The public who would vote Labour will not with him in charge.

Neil Kinnock went to hell and back to get rid of the far left who were ruling the party locally by fair means or foul and now the party is back where it was before his efforts to make it electable.
