  1. The future of the Labour Party

    I decided not to post this in the Leadership thread as that contest is all but over. Corbyn will be declared winner by a huge margin. So what does the future hold for Labour? What with the exposure of Momentum promised by Channel 4 Dispatches already to be viewed tomorrow night, Panorama will...

  3. General election - It's going to get dirty soon

    Despite Dianne Abbots excruciating interviews, and JCs unconvincing oratory, Labour seems to be campaigning quite strongly. Although some of the early policy announcements were a bit gimmicky, the headliners should be popular with target voters and the attacks on May's tendency to hide from...

  4. Katie Hopkins

    She was sued by Jack Monroe and she lost. Monroe wins 24000, but Hopkins' also has to pay Montoe's legal costs. I'm not sure which legal firm she used, but they're costing Hopkins 300k. On top of that there will be Hopkins' own legal fees. I considered posting this in the good news stories...

    If ever a company set itself up to shoot itself in the foot until there was no foot left then Tesco is it. I was a Tesco shopper for years even after their bad PR over pricing. They then shut several stores that I used and also cancelled new stores planned at a few locations. Today I learn that...

    The first one takes place on ITV tonight with 2 of the key players noticeably absent. I can see the logic in Theresa May staying away. The Tories are 2-0 up in injury time and can only throw it away so perhaps saying nothing is the best thing she can do especially considering she does seem ill...

  15. Chris Cornell dead (Soundgarden/Audioslave)

    Died suddenly aged 52. In the middle of a tour and about to perform in Detroit so it doesn't look like there were any pressing health issues. Shame, as he had some voice and I used to like a bit of that music back in the day. That's no age.

    Should voting be compulsory? I personally think it should be but then again I regard myself as a socialist, the left being the side that would would gain from this. IMO it would provide more legitimacy and eradicate demographic deficit.
