let's face it, the man on the number 57 omnibus could do better than the current crew.
comment on Sky News this morning by a senior Labour guy that the shadow cabinet agreed that Labour should vote in favour of an election, and should have known better - they had the gubbinment on the spot with nowhere to go, now they've lost the advantage (he suggests) for 10 years or more.
Clearly the Islington triplets couldn't see past their rose-coloured glasses and believed the Marxist future was theirs for the taking.
I detest the Labour party, but I hate the concept that there will be no effective opposition for 5 or 10 years.
I'm sure that at the cocktail parties yesterday in Westminster the 100+ new MPs were all singing 'Jeremy Corbyn' ............. the Tories best ally.
Well, it's looking like the candidates will be as follows...
Lisa Nandy- pro Brexit.
Keir Starmer- pro Remain.
Emily Thornberry- pro Remain.
Rebecca Long-Bailey- pro Remain.
Clive Lewis- pro Remain.
Now, is it just me or is only one of these candidates in touch with what the Man on the Clapham Omnibus is thinking and saying? Yet we all know that the Corbynista faction will ensure that one of the pro-Remain candidates is elected so that Labour loses the 2024 election.
You really have to wonder if many of the current crop of Labour party members are actually Conservative subversives parachuted in with a mission to destroy the Labour party, and nobody has noticed yet.
I think the "man on the Clapham omnibus" is a bit out of date.
Lambeth: REMAIN 111,584 LEAVE 30,340
Clapham is in Lambeth and I suspect is probably fairly indicative of the borough as a whole ie firmly pro remain.
I agree with your last paragraph but I don't think the Tories needed any help. Once the Brexit plebiscite was sorted out with a majority for leave it left a clear and obvious path for instant destruction of Labour. A bullet between the eyes. Ironic really that people who would never have voted Tory did so simply because of Brexit. Nothing else. It was a Brexit election. Technically impossible for Johnson to lose it.
And this Tory landslide was of course the 2nd reason the plebiscite was originally introduced. The first being to get Cameron his beloved second term in office.
