The slight problem is that your previous message was quite clearly about people involved in running in actual electoral politics and not about social media

No, it was clearly about social media. I literally said "social media".

Most of these people don't want to get involved in electoral politics in any serious sense. 
No, you said "social media" afterwards

A previous post was a clear reference to people actually involved in electoral politics

This one below

I have literally no idea what you're arguing about here, you're just grunting 

You came into the topic to bitch about Corbyn and you've got nothing to back it up other than sheer hatred

Joe Biden is apparently far left according to some of the wingnuts in the states. 

Europe has a far left. Its not commonplace. But it exists. Generally hides behind terms like "democratic socialist" while every part of the platform will be state based. Often very contradictory about the type of popular uprising they like, and inconsistent on foreign affairs.. Loaded with populist rhetoric. Light on solutions. Could end every policy proposal with the refrain of "vote "xyz" for SU President".

Oh yeah, that post. Thats just truth, not hatred or "grunting". MC asked about the far left, and I gave a primer of what the European Far left is.

You're nuts

You came onto the thread to bitch about Corbyn and all you have is "far left"

Corbyn isn't even near far left, he's moderate social democratic by European standards

Yeah, because milquetoast centrism is the answer, or something

I never once said Corbyn was far left since I came onto the thread.

But criticism of the European Far Left is now "grunting" and "hatred". Ridiculous stuff.

I haven't a clue what you're on about then or why you're even commenting, and that's more of a clue than you have

Ad hominem would work better if I wasn't directly responding to your post which said I was "grunting".

The Guardian makes interesting reading today that Starmer had spoken with Corbyn in advance of the publication of the report, and that the approach that would be taken was also discussed.

Nice takedown of tory boot-licker, Kirsty Wark, on Newsnight last night.

Never let the leading role the BBC took in the dispicable vilification-campaign of Corbyn be forgotten.

It was a full-scale establishment hit-job.

Yeah, she has long-established links with the blairite, red-tory, entryist right of the Labour party. We know this.

But are you seriously trying to suggest she, Newsnight and the BBC as a whole were all that put out by the tory triumph over Corbyn's Labour at the last GE? She's a right winger.

Based on the above clip, do you think her conduct and approach was fair and balanced? Does she treat tories and their supporters with such derision and with so little respect?

Anyway, I doubt that guy will be invited back again anytime soon...

If there's anyone who's a red-tory it's the man at the very top. Ex-Magistrate at a court who sentenced people for protesting. How very democratic.

Let's be honest he only suspended Corbyn to gain some relevancy as he knows he's also getting whitewashed by a Govt who took 6 months to figure out a what the benefits of a facemask is.

The only man who's put up a decent challenge in the last 12 months, isn't even in British politics currently, was yer man now dubbed even by BBC and Sky as the 'New King of the North of England' Andy Burnham
Current state of affairs I would comfortably say literally everyone up here in the north would vote for Burnham, and I've said it in the past Labour's biggest mistake historically will be was electing Ed Miliband over him.

The current COVID situation has created a north/south divide where major cities like London are getting away with absolute leniency whereas Liverpool, Manchester and Yorkshire are getting hit with restrictions with close to zero funding. 
You might of seen it in the news but Burnham stood up to that sh*t and his popularity has surged to the point he would be a genuine threat to Boris if he ever returned to the Shadow Cabinet.

I don’t have a lot of time for her because of her unionist leanings 

As for Corbyn his Achilles heal was brexit , the anti semitism was a smear but the lack of a position on brexit was the icing on the cake don’t know why they bothered with the smear he was dead man walking politically on the biggest question of a generation
