    Good effort drj. To get it spot on you need to channel a frothing Mark Francois a bit and throw in a few more bingo words “Venezuela” “sixth formers” “trident” etc

    My eyes would go a bit wonky after sitting on the fence for so long

    Since this thread got revived did JC ever confirm/deny walking out the the meeting ‘cos of Chukka?

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/mar/20/corbyn-quits-party-leaders-brexit-meeting-over-umunna-invite

    Vince Cable says he did and the Labour spokesman didn’t deny it (more confirmed it really). So is it a fact that this happened and if so specifically what was the problem? Was it really just an objecting to a non-party leader being there? If so seems a bit petty given the gravity of the situation. Alternatively if it was just an excuse to avoid the meeting and getting tarnished with some of the blame for this farce it’s a pretty unfortunate issue to have picked.

    So has it been denied outright anywhere? My google-fu is weak on this one.

    He met may later. Quite right imo. C.U shouldn’t be there.

    Whatever his exact reasons were, it was another timewasty May stunt and he gave it more respect than it deserved. Remember what the outcome was…

    When she called for actual meaningful talks, he was there and took it a lot more seriously than she did. It’s a strange world if anyone can point the finger at Corbyn as being the problem in May’s inability to change or compromise.

    Particularly like this most recent poll. (Sure they change all the time and ultimately mean nothing but if Binners gets to point how they have a mystery 10pt lag – then I can show this.)

    +8.6 pt lead.

    It’s a depressing state of affairs when the only real Pro Eu party is polling lower than UKIP.
    A labour GE win at this stage simply kicks off the process again for a red unicorn brexit and another waste of a year.

    Other issues matter Mike?

    So I completely disagree.

    Or maybe his eyes have deteriorated

    That can’t be right – it must be because he is a Marxist and an anti-Semite

    (Have I got the hang of this Corbyn-bashing yet? )

    very good. Yes thats about it

    In this moment of national crisis, which politicians have done most to try to ensure risks of hard Brexit and dealless crashing out are minimised? Has it been the shitest main party leaders I can remember, IDS included? Nope. Cooper and Letwin have been about as effective as they could have been given their roles. How much better would the situation be if cooper was leader of the opposition? An effective and experienced leader, able to make things happen and carry people with her, and turn up the heat on a government so inefective it doesn’t warrant the name? Corbyn is part of the tragedy

    They do, which is why I’d much rather see Labour in coalition with another party at this stage. I can’t vote for a party who will continue with brexit – I note the poll does not include tig/change

    Corbyn? Trying to find the least damaging Brexit? Insisting on May removing some of her red lines while holding his badly split party together? BINO?

    if you think that the next 10 years of Brexit negotiations wont swallow up all of the next 2 parliament’s focus, exactly as it has for the last 3 you are being very very optimistic

    the WA is only about 80% of the stuff we need to negotiate

    If Cooper had been leader she would have been in the same bind as Corbyn. Dealing with a badly split party. Lage number threatening to walk as he is too brexity and another large part threatening to walk if he is not brexity enough

    Also Letwin nor any other Tories will support anything coming from the Labour leader. Do you really think Cooper has not been acting with at least tacit consent from the leadership?

    These issues remain no matter who the leader is.

    I cannot think of anyone who meets the description but as someone else said what labour need is someone who can energise adn sell an idea. Corbyn is not the man for that but I cannot think of another person in the labour movement who has Blair type salesmans ability – and even he I doubt could do it. Coooper certainly could not. Nor Starmer nor Watson.

    Another poll.

    The Telegraph – Voting Intention and Brexit Poll – April 2019

    This one by an actual polling organisation.

    “This one by an actual polling organisation.”

    The last one posted was from Hanbury Strategy- a registered polling organisation, not to mention political analysis group set up by David Cameron’s advisor Ameet Gill and brexiteer Paul Stephenson.

    Pure political propaganda and not be taken seriously, but it made I larf.
