A Life On Our Planet is heart-wrenching. Here's a man in his early 90s who could have retired comfortably half a century ago agitating for change to improve a world that he won't see. Everyone should see it. It's absolutely stonking.

He was responsible for several species being wiped off the Earth in his early days.

Mitch Benn is pretty deso because something happened with him as he completely dropped off the BBC doing his poor comedy songs on the Now Show to become a full-time horny centrist dad who crack one off over EU Supergirl posing Brussels and hates trade unions for blocking David Milliband's premiership
The fucker never stops tweeting, either. I was looking for that union one, so I could call him a cunt voice my disagreement and there were hundreds of "hilarious" observations about that fly on Mike Pence's head.

Have youse seen Angela Rayner's tweet about Clare Fox?

"I am absolutely disgusted that @BorisJohnson has stood by and let IRA apologist Claire Fox be elevated to the House of Lords. His failure to block her appointment is an insult to the victims of terrorist atrocities and people in Warrington and the NW.He should be ashamed."

Obviously Claire Fox is a dick, but I'm not sure about this line from Labour at all. She's apologised several times for (implicitly, unless I'm wrong) supporting the Revolutionary Communist Party's position on Northern Ireland. This seems like a transparent attempt to distance themselves from the Corbyn leadership; a transparently unconvincing attempt to turn the old Tory attack on Corbyn back onto the Tories; and a further instance of the conflict in NI and its legacies only being of interest to the British parties when they can use it as a means to take wee digs at one another. It's infuriating, but it also seems like bad triangulation or strategising, a dual tendency which seems to characterise Starmer's time leading the party.

Yep, it's grovelling awful shit. We can't lay all of this on Keith either. Who is his Cummings/Milne?

What if this is the actual best we can do as a species, though? What if we have hit our peak of compassion, equity and justice. Very little has fundamentally changed with humans in the past few thousand years has it, our instincts still rule us.

The idea that this is literally the best we can do - and we should do our best to deal with that - is a bit depressing.

No harm to Angela Rayner but I don't think she's humanities' peak of compassion, equity and justice. Maybe she's Stockport's peak of compassion, equity and justice, but I wouldn't even bet on that.

Yeah but she probably is, as a human.

We've stood on the precipice for decades and nothing really has changed.

Claire Ainsley is his strategist, the one behind this 'new working class' guff, rebuilding trust by espousing 'british values' and not having any tangible policies.

Make sure you vote in Zands' world cup of sensible centrist comedians on twitter.

I nominated iannucci on that right out the gate.



Not sure boyle deserves to be in there, even if seeing him dunk on Corbyn about antisemitism then get that prick Baddiel on after.

Baddiel and Schneider in the same group is a tough choice.

He's edgy enough to talk about the Queen having herpes or something, but not edgy enough to support Corbyn against fascism. I think he can probably go fuck himself.

I got the impression that when speaking as himself (on twitter etc) he did support, or at least tacitly support Corbyn. Less so on telly, which I guess makes him a hack more than anything. Maybe I'm being too charitable.

Looks like the only people who think he's doing an acceptable job of holding the gov't to account are people that would already vote for him.

These helmets are the ones that tell the left that they don't matter and he's focusing on winning people back aren't they?

Group C, with David Baddiel, Mitch Benn, Eddie Izzard & David Schneider, is the Group Of Death

Just seen this. It's going to be a race to the bottom where they try and fail to out-Tory the Tories on cheap digs innit.
