Some utter tosh from Polly Toynbee. Apparently politics is on pause due to the vaccine rollout, so it doesn't matter how unpopular Keith Starmer is.

Definitely #notacult, though.

So there is no politics until Starmer stars doing well in the polls again, people only care about the vaccinations (what about the economy, rising unemployment, nurses' pay or billions being spent on more nuclear warheads, to name but four) and Starmer should be praised for Scottish labour

Oh and "Sleaze is what fells Tory governments". I'd argue the recession was as big a factor as sleaze for the Major government, and Heath's government didn't fall due to sleaze.

Comments are off on the piece, of course.

The see-saw analogy almost got her and her ilk taking responsibility for a Tory government via the drubbing they gave to the opposition, putting the tories 'up'.

I do feel like the Guardian just openly trolls us, like the article about Joe Biden praising US unions, something we Brits can apparently only look on and envy - ignoring the openly Union backed and Union supporting leader of the opposition the Guardian treated like a fucking piñata on a daily basis for years.

Unions that don't back Starmer are awful. We should open wide while he shits in our mouths.


Is a quote from Christine McAnea I believe.

Quote
Oh, the grand old Duke of Holborn,
He had ten thousand men;
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.

When they were up, they were up,
And when they were down, they were down,
And when they were only halfway up,
They were neither up nor down.

Actually didn't need to change the lyrics

It is to the point where they are just openly shamelessly laughing at their own readers. The Biden cocksuckery so far is absolutely remarkable, but maybe Starmer is doing such a shit job it looks impressive by comparison.

Oh, and another thing, I know we all laugh about Keith and all that and it is funny and very sad.  But this goes way beyond Keith, we should be careful we never forget it.

Remember the days of Cronby.  How Keithy was then, an anodyne unlovable robot, a meeping cheerleader for the second ref, sure, but basically inscrutable, neither fish nor fowl.  OK, he was fishy, so cold and dead but fowl too.  Look at him now. 

Always keep in mind, for future choices, if they don't stand up proud and sing the song all the live long days of their lives, they're probably stitching you up like a fucking kipper or maybe, Bombay duck.  And there are lots and lots like that.  Whatever happens, let's never, ever, go through this again.

cloakroom (free hangers) - 2 pounds per item
dry cleaning - 10 pounds per item
wet cleaning (hand shandy) - 30 pounds to completion

Quote
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!

O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?

This is the sort of stuff Labour should be saying, maybe on the statues debate, maybe just because it's true and needs saying -

Every Northern town and city has a memorial to Margaret Thatcher. It's called a Food Bank.

heard Emma "would you nationalise sausages" Barnett with Dodds on Woman's Hour. Brilliantly sums up the pincer movement they got Labour in.

"biggest election defeat since the 1930s, Red Wall, Corbyn gone yes BUT now tell me how you're different to the Tories"

Given her expensive education was paid for by her father's sex trafficking business, and she joked about his 'whores' in emails, I would say yes.

Quote
They agreed Labour had “a real struggle on our hands in Hartlepool” but attacked what they called “a betrayal of all the Labour activists working so hard”, and added: “Unfortunately, there are some factional figures on the hard left who seem intent on wrecking the party, even if that means cosying up to the Conservatives.”
