Big Al Whittle BS: UK General election December 12 2019 (927* d) RE: BS: UK General election December 12 2019 27 Nov 19


Nevertheless some Labour leaders succeeded.

I can remember an old series on TV called The Defenders about a father and son , defence counsel team in America.

E. G. Marshall played the father.

One week he had this argument with his son, who was raging about some flagrant injustice.
EG said - Its no use screaming at the law's injustice. The law is a machine, you must engage with it. Take it on , on its own terms.

I feel the same about these left wing Labour leaders...Foot, Kinnock, and now Corbyn.
They don't engage with politics - they just prat about.

Wilson, Smith, Blair....you could actually smell the tory fear.

You notice - I left out Callaghan. Whose election defeat was almost entirely due to the very people who are Corbyn's mates. Callaghan never got to make a single electioneering speech - they disrupted every single Labour meeting.

They brought in 18 years of tory rule and Mrs Thatcher. I think they will achieve something of the same next month.

Its okay. But the people at the bottom of society suffer under tory rule. Its serious stuff - and if you're taste is for histronic fucking about, rather than the acqisition of power - you have your champion.
