    Of course he's not. You can see all the many posts proving the EU is crumbling and striving to be a federal state followed by all the posts abusing the posters providing the proof. The many, many posts.

    Dull, what's your view on your man Trump being outed as a liar by the head of the FBI?

    Labour party currently tearing itself apart in public. Slanging match so loud that press can hear every word from outside.

    I only brought it up because Pete seems to think she's always been pro brexit.

    Utter shambles, they are basically letting the Tories get away with murder because they cannot even manage their own affairs.

    Unfortunately, Tubby seems to think he knows lots of things. In reality, of course, he knows **** all!...

    Sooner they rip themselves in two the better. They can't continue As they are.

    It's what they need. A credible opposition right now would scare the **** out of the flip flappers currently "running" the country.

    Every gov needs a strong opposition.

    Tories have Corbyn.

    I'd like to see them unite behind Corbyn, but that clearly isn't going to happen. There are too many factions that want Corbyn out and want to stave off any influence from Momentum and would rather see the old cronies still supporting Tony Blair to steer the party towards the 'centre'. The problem is, that Corbyn has become a divisive figure and that's a real shame, because he actually represents exactly what is needed in opposing the Tories slash and burn of public services and promotion of corporate interests.

    I think the Labour party will either split into two separate left wing and centerist parties, or, should Theresa May be arrogant enough to actually call a general election, Corbyn, sensing that they won't win, might actually do something quite radical and step down and allow somebody like David Milliband to return, who would actually bring a lot of Labour supporters, disillusioned Tories and floating voters back into the fold to vote Labour again.

    Being a labour supporter, I'd like to see Captain Birdseye thrown overboard and Hilary Benn put in charge.

    Not holding my breath, obviously. Corbyn's days are numbered though, the latest public spat is all about succession.
