Corbyn has won
Corbyn’s CHARACTER is his destiny, his winning card. And that’s what could well win him the next GE. The people love him, trust him and respect him both as a man and as a politician.
And so we shall see the myth of Corbyn’s unelectability, the put-up job to undermine his leadership qualities and the outrageous accusations against his respect for human dignity and diversity in all its forms gradually dissolve into incoherence and oblivion just as mist is dispelled by the morning sun.
Ordinary people, cast aside and marginalised, neofeudalised, humiliated, cheated and deceived by decades of elitist governments, now with new hope for a better future.
Even the sceptical anarchist can empathise on seeing the light of a new dawn in the people’s eyes. Allergic and recalcitrant to all forms of oppressive power, he watches and comments from the sidelines, strongly supportive even though all of this falls far short of the anarchist utopia. The heart is warmed at the prospects of the interests of the people genuinely represented and upheld. For once.
Credibility, compassion for the poor and the homeless, concrete policies, combat the neoliberal ethic… Corbyn will have my first ever GE vote. I wish him luck! The ways things are already shaping up he is going to need it.
We are all so delighted that we are holding a street party to celebrate the ABSOLUTE FACT that Labour will now be unelectable and not in a position to savage the U.K. economy in favour of the feckless until AT LEAST the mid two thousand and twenties. They are incapable of realising how crap they really are, but the real people know, and ARE WE GOING TO CELEBRATE ? ...... WE SURE ARE ! ...... Raise a glass to the dim with us !

going great so far
And Geoff and Asita have not been seen on these boards since!
by setting up some decoy 'new boards'
Everywhere was calling Corbny's victory a 'landslide' but 60-40doesbt feel landslidey to me.
I think 70-30 should be about the range for a landslide.
Let's try and get this agreed before lunch
If there were five candidates and the winner gained 60% of the vote then I'd call that a landslide. With two candidates I'd say it has to be at least 80/20. Thoughts?
I bet they'd know they exact percentage for landslideyness.
Lunch Today is meat
Although it does feel like we're cheating a bit without first getting a verdict from lord politics.
Polly Toynbee says it was actually bad so just forget it
