In which it is argued that:

- With Unison's backing, Starmer is virtually a shoe-in for the final race
- That said, he's better off in a wider contest than a straight face off against the Continuity RLB

Still haven't heard from the LP after rejoining beyond the initial email acknowledgement, mind

'RLB' = 'Right/Left back', surely?

It has to be Dallas.

Good game, good game. Which LUFC player would you back as a political leader?

I think Dallas would probably be up there (unless, what with NI, he's got any weird DUP sympathies he keeps to himself).

Beradi, being Swiss and therefore opting a neutral stance, in the same manner as Jezzer, which ended well.

I’d back Pablo Hernandez to lead a forest-dwelling band of guerrillas, come the revolution.

Che Adams is genuinely named after Che Guevara as well. It's written in the stars...

I see continuity candidate Robotic Wrong-Toady has awarded Corbyn “ten out of ten” for leading Labour to its worst election defeat since 1935.
:lol:

Apparently, the result would have been very different if Labour had set up a “rebuttal unit” to persuade misguided voters how wrong they all were about the great leader. I’m sure that would have worked well!
:lol:
There will be no end to the problems afflicting mankind until economists become rulers, or, by some miracle, rulers become economists.

And we had Lackwit Leadsom on the Today programme this morning telling us all that the government is "not in the business of bailing out failing businesses," while ostensibly on the show to explain why they'd done just that with an airline.

Might I politely ask for a reminder of who's a Labour Party member on here?
