- Jeremy Corbyn
Shah is no angel herself,
But this? Wow.
Two years ago, Salma Yaqoob ran against me in Bradford West, a campaign that drove me to feeling suicidal. Now she wants to run for West Midlands Metro Mayor.

WTF is wrong with Labour?Posted 3 months agooutofbreathMember
Interesting dilemma for JC if he has to form a government with help from the SNP in some form.
SNP will only support him in exchange for indyref in year one. If Scotland goes Indy Labour will find it very hard to win future elections.
…but refusing power and triggering another quick election is also a bad look.Posted 1 month agobinnersSubscriber

Have you seen what the Labour party is presently polling north of the border? They’re finished. They’re a fringe party. Any election victory is going to have to involve seats outside Scotland, because they’re history there now.Posted 1 month agomarinerMember
What does the collective think about the rumours that Corbyn had had a stroke?
Does having a wonkey eye impair your ability to govern?
Most PMs seem to have overcome impediments physical or otherwise.
Churchill government 1951 suffered a stroke in 1953 remained in office until 1955 replaced by Eden.Posted 1 month ago
Eden worst PM of 20th century accused of lying to HoC over Suez. Private life rumored of affairs both he and his wife.
Replaced by McMillan whose wife was having an affair with Boothby over a thirty-year period and possibly the father of Sarah Macmillan. Cabinet included Profumo. Retrospectively he was considered one the most effective post war PMs. Cabinet rife with rivalries and disputes.
He over saw the decolonization process.
Replaced by Alexander Frederick Douglas-Home, Baron Home of the Hirsel. Enough said.
Replaced by Harold ‘pound in your pocket’ Wilson and his secretary Marsha. Was he a spy was he spied on and destabilized by uk security? Cabinet included George Brown who was a better orator drunk – frequently – than most of today’s politicians sober.
Edward Heath about whom it was rumored but never proved. Brought us the four-day week and membership of CM. PM post swapped between Heath and Wilson.
Jim ‘what crisis’ Callahan. Winter of discontent paved the way for Thatcher.
More affairs and resignations and dodgy deals. Privatisation Miners strikes Falklands selling off council housing and generally pissing the north sea oil revenues against the wall. And the crowning glory of council tax before they got rid of her.
Followed by Major and Edwina Curry. More sleaze allegations and internal party squabbles over Maastricht and yet more privatisation.
Blair short golden period then same old same old dodgy dealings and wars.
Brown, Cameron , May, fill in your own reasons.
Johnson a drunk and a coke head being held hostage by erg. Serial philanderer and liar.

So when was this golden period when our politicians where fit and able as leaders of this country besides never?MSPMember
I would find it rather comforting to believe that Corbyn and his team could hush up a stroke, it would suggest at a competence he is never credited with. It isn’t like they have their fingers on the levers of influence over the media and institutions like the unashamedly corrupt tories have. However for the torie boys, which of the contradictory conspiracies are you going to believe? or are you really so dim as to just believe them all?

Before the election there was lots of talk of Jezza’s glasses and ‘muscle weakness’ got cited as the cause.
I didn’t give it much thought but I was talking to a guy who’s had a stroke at work and he brought up weakness in his face which got me thinking… Are there any ‘trivial’ causes of “muscle weakness”. Feels to me like “muscle weakness” is usually caused by something non-trivial. (When I experienced weakness in my legs I was in front of a neurologist the following working day which suggests the NHS take it pretty seriously.)
So is whatever’s wrong with Jezza likely to be harmless or has he had a more serious problem?
If he had a major health issue during the campaign and carried on as though nothing had happened he’s a bloody hero whatever you think of his political skill.

A Labour Party spokesperson said: ‘Jeremy Corbyn has a muscle weakness in his right eye which has become apparent in recent months. He is being treated at Moorfields Eye Hospital and thanks the wonderful staff for their care and expertise. He has been using corrective glasses as part of the treatment. He is otherwise in good health, is on the campaign trail every week travelling the country and runs and cycles regularly.’
