Oh dear ... Not another posh git pretending to be from the "slump" ...
no! - its like - ''it means no worries!'' , you know, like the hairy pig, Pumba...or summink. and he grunts alot?!
oh forget it.
I predict...This guy
As leader of the Labour Party ? ....you having a laugh ? ?
For a start he's black ...... we don't do black political party leaders in Britain. Besides, the Labour party isn't that open minded......all applicants must be middle class and white - vulgar working class and dark candidates need not apply.
Secondly, he's got 18 months experience as an MP ...... 18 months job experience and you think he can lead a party ? !
And thirdly, he would represent zero improvement on Ed Milliband. The geezer is a walking talking incarnated version of the Guardian. Expect nothing more from him than muddled waffling fence-sitting bollox......."we're just like the Tories but so much nicer". The unelected bishops in the House of Lords, and a handful of LibDem peers, are doing a better job of challenging the government than that useless herbert.
ernie - what broadsheet do "real" Lab supporters read OOI?
Mostly the Guardian I suspect teamhurtmore, with a few reading the Independent. It's unlikely to be the the Times or the Telegraph. Why ?
EDIT : When I say "unlikely" I of course mean unlikely that many read Times or the Telegraph. There was I time many years ago when I read the Times on a daily basis, and occasionally the Telegraph, at that time I was a very strong supporter of Labour. Although to be fair I often buy more than one paper per day.
Mostly the Guardian I suspect
Oooh, I hope not Ernie. there's not that many of them. And Im one of them Guardian readers that dont even vote for Labour
Oooh, I hope not Ernie. there's not that many of them.
He asked me what broadsheet "real" Labour supporters read. Which is what I answered. I am well aware that there are more than 230,000 Labour supporters in Britain. I have no idea why he asked me.
Nothing sinister in the question ernie - its just thats the second dig at Guardian readers recently which seemed to suggest that "true Lab" supporters do not read it. I would have guessed its market segment was Lib Dem/Labour.
The graph above would be more interesting as a %age of readership. So lots of Mail readers vote lab in absolute terms but guess they would be small % of total Mail readership.
And as I was reading this, he's just been on the 6 o'clock news. Spooky.

that clock doesn't look very straight
It's not, due to subsidence it's currently leaning by eighteen inches. Just think of the scaffolding companies rubbing their hands.

Eh ? Of course plenty of Labour supporters read the Guardian, specially the ones which are also Labour Party members. How the hell do you think they end up with the likes of Blair and Miliband as their leaders ?
And if it's only my second dig at the Guardian recently then I must be slacking.
Well http://www.oddschecker.com/specials/politics-and-election/british-politics/next-prime-minister still shows him at 14s at the shortest, behind Yvette at 8s and David and the other Ed at 10s. The bookies aren't necessarily the best political forecasters, but neither are they in the habit of being overly generous with their odds.
Some interesting names in that list aracer ..........Nick Clegg, Chris Huhne, and Liam Fox
Yeah well, the bookies will happily take a bet on anybody. I probably should quote best odds as that's what you'd put a bet on if using that (anything shorter is the bookies trying to make a bit more margin) - which has Yvette on 10s, David on 12s, the other Ed on 14s and Mr Umunna on 25s. In which case you can get 50/1 on Nick - I suspect some people are putting money on him not realising that even if a NUT assassination cell gets CMD he still doesn't get any power under our constitution.
