    They didn't stand candidates at the last election as they advised their voters to vote Labour instead, not really surprising given Corbyn has very recent communist parties members like Andrew Murray now in his inner circle. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/general-election-uk-communist-party-no-candidates-jeremy-corbyn-labour-support-first-1920-a7699761.html https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/feb/26/jeremy-corbyn-makes-unites-andrew-murray-part-time-consultant Just imagine the reaction from the BBC if the BNP told people they weren't standing and advised the voters to vote Tory or if we found out Teresa May had an advisor who was part of the EDL a few years ago - I can't help feeling we would have heard a bit more about it.

    To be fair they'll need someone to ring the taxis again to give out the redundancy notices if McDonnell gets the keys to number 11. No better person than Derek Hatton given he's done it before.

    Liberalism is just dying on its arse now everywhere, Conservatism won't be far behind. We are heading back to patriotic nationalism v hard leftism by the looks of it. The real problem with Chukka Umanna and his gang are they are out of touch on almost all the issues, economically they are from the right and publicly people now seem to be heading to the left on that, then they are pro immigration, anti nationalism when the public are also heading in the opposite direction on that. I don't really see how it can work now for them or the Lib Dems outside of middle class university type towns.

    Not just leftist, totally fcuking nuts. They even have tried to brand people like Majid Nawaz as anti-Muslim extremists. A very dangerous organisation. https://www.splcenter.org/news/2018/06/18/splc-statement-regarding-maajid-nawaz-and-quilliam-foundation

    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    It's almost like she's polite enough to warn us not to take her back reading the things she has said since she has been found. I know she's young but the lack of remorse is horrifying, she's a very dangerous woman and I've no doubt she'll radicalise others when she inevitably comes back into the country - unfortunately we can't watch people 24/7.

    2-0 with 8 mins to go and changes a right back for a right back on his last substitute 😂

    Sarri really is a dire manager, moved the best player in the World out of position for someone who offers nothing defensively and is still making like for like changes at 2-0 down, incapable of even changing a formation.

    On the same day a person like Berger feels she has to leave Labour, Derek Hatton appears to be reinstated. Galloway next?

    No idea about you personally but fascinating how so many in Labour all think these people are morally now obliged to call a by-election but didn't say a word about it with Jared O'Mara.

    At least if they did have any doubts about whether they were doing the right thing they can read stuff like this and have it confirmed they are. The replies to that tweet are great as well.

    One of the basic things they haven't addressed is that a new "centrist" party can't just be a Remain one, if Soubry, Allen etc join up they may as well just join the Lib Dems. Fair play for these finally having the balls to leave the hard-left nutters/antisemitism in Labour behind but I'm not sure whether this has legs or not in the long term.

    When was the last time a group of MP's resigned from a major political party because of the bigotry in it? In 2019 that's pretty incredible. I think this is going to get very nasty over the next few weeks and months.

    President Trump & the USA

    To be honest I don't even blame him, got him some PR and in the era of Trump you know the media will swallow this without any question. Even if he has made it up they'll be many who still see him as a victim.
