    5 Days to go - Made up your mind yet?

    We are into the final 5 days before the 2017 General Election day on 8th June 2017. Lots of TV debates, lots of radio interviews, lots of gaffs and lots of ground made up on May by Corbyn. So who are you going to vote for, if at all?
  2. Air strikes in Syria

    The US have launched a missile attack on a Syrian air base. May and Fallon agree with this action, not sure about Corbyn. This is different to the standard attack on the ME as Syria has the backing of Russia and China so does have the possibility to escalate. After the WOMD lie in Iraq, I...
  3. Chilcot Enquiry

    Report due (finally) on Wednesday. Rumours suggest it won't look good for Blair. Will Corbyn call for impeachment? Does that potentially explain the Blairites attempted coup? Alex Salmond seems to think so...

    Labour Thorne vs Corbyn

    In the Labour New Leader thread, Uncle Leo has claimed that Corbyn has as much chance as Willie Thorne has in becoming Prime minister. My own take is that if Thorne can over come illness, and adversity he could take Corbyn on... and beat him. So zoners who's it to be, in a straight choice for...

    Corbyn - 100 not out.

    Today marks the centenary of Jeremy's 100th PMQ. When elected as the Labour leader he promised us a new kind of politics, is he, in zoners opinions delivering?

    London Mayoral Elections

    Interesting piece about George Galloway. Apologies for the Guardian link, yes I do feel dirty but still, food for thought. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/davehillblog/2015/nov/25/george-galloway-if-i-was-jeremy-corbyn-id-want-me-to-be-london-mayor I wonder what his real agenda is.

    The EU referendum

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-35150356 I see that Michael Heseltine has warned of a Tory "civil war" and that the Tories would be a "laughing stock" if Cameron allowed a free vote for his Cabinet Ministers on this issue. Funny, I seem to remember Harold Wilson doing exactly that last...

    Oldham by election

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-35003152 A black eye for UKIP methinks,in more than one way. Also (and more important) a ringing endorsement of Jeremy Corbyn's Labour party.
  9. Labour First By Election for Corbyn

    With the death of Labour MP Michael Meacher, we will have our first By Election for Corbyn, though it has to be said it's in the Labour heartland. Still, be interesting to see what the majority figure ends up doing.

    Privilege - and what it really means

    Have been having a bit of a row on FB with one of hubby's ex colleagues who used to be a good laugh but has become pretty much of a political activist, pre-election for the Greens, but subsequently for Labour, and in particular for Corbyn, plus organising rallies for "#Black lives matter". She...
