    Default Labour Splitters

    No-one talking about this? What does it all mean? Are they selfish arseholes or principled martyrs to a cause? Should they call a by-election, does it fuck Labour, what does it mean for Brexit etc?

    General consensus is that Berger is the only real loss and the rest are right wing Blairite careerist scum who may now try and stand in marginal seats to fuck Corbyn.

    Is that general consensus though? I'm reading through comments pages and while half of them say exactly that, the other half say "Thank God, the Labour party had become something I could no longer support and at last there is something for us moderates".

    Sorry I meant blue coated there. um what is that in english... mavi yakali... Blue collar.

    And I don't care about the splitters but if labour dies I will not be overjoyed but will sigh in relief. more than an irritating nuisance now.

    Have you seen the records of these fuckers? Gay re-education, 'hard' on immigration, water privatisation... If that's what is considered moderate, just vote Tory.

    Shuker. Continued to support and work with christian charity CARE after every other connected MP ran for the hills due to the exposure of its gay therapy programme.

    I think there's a lot of relief that people are splitting from Corbyn and his shitty stance on Brexit, and all the other shit that's gone on in the party on his watch. However, it's a bit of a "naked lunch" moment in that the politics of those who oppose him now coalesces into view. I thought "now I'll remember how much I hated these people”. I'm still glad there's been a split though. Kinda agreed with everything Mike Gapes said yesterday about Corbyn's foreign policy.

    "I am furious that the Labour leadership is complicit in facilitating Brexit. Corbyn, and those around him, are also on the wrong side of so many international issues from Russia, to Syria, to Venezuela. If he ever became prime minister it would be a threat to our national security and international alliances.’

    Strange to hear an (ex)Labour MP speak absolute truth about this on his way out, while Hatton gets let back in. Racist war crimes apologists like Chris Williamson still have the Labour whip of course. with seemingly fuck all censure for their actions. Today, he's been busily retweeting material posted by holocaust deniers.

    My actual feelings about this are that it's pretty sad. Labour (or the Leadership anyway) seemingly has no desire to reach out beyond it's boundaries, have mutiple constitunencies. The strategy seems to be, you are with us or against us, hopefully May will fuck up badly enough to let us seize power. The vitriol directed their way has little to do with their politics either - I glanced over a couple of hundred hateful comments yesterday and no one mentioned them in nearly as much detail as Droid's post above.
