Labour Launched their MEP Election campaign today
JUst Jeremy Corbyn and his mum it seems, talking to a few journalists in a Library in Medway.
I feel quite sad for Jeremy - I’ve always believed him to be a principled and deicated man with a history of Euroscepticism. The sort of man perhaps, who, if he had not sold out his principles to the “Islington Labour” Careerists, could have been welcomed with open arms by the Brexit Party.
However, He and his mum are still there - making a fist of starting some sort of campaign. Reading his speech from a dummy board whilst the other rallies we have seen have had a lot of people speaking without any aids.
Apparently from one of the questions, the Conservatives have said they do not want any of their MEPs (should they happen to get one elected) to take their seats.
Jezzer looked a bit askance at the question - so I suspect a good healthy dose of pragmatic Capitalism there !
He says he is the only party which stands a chance against the “Poison of Farage”
As I said I always regarded him as a man of principle and conviction - shame he and his mum appear to be the only two left in his party
Interesting he was rabbitting on about “Global Warming” and “Species Diversity” and “Reaching out” to other “Progressives” and “workers groups” “across the world” and fair play to the woman who spoke about Children in poverty. in the uk. Sometimes methinks - “Charity should begin at home”
Obviously I want the Brexit Party to destroy both major parties at the General Election, but You are one of the few I shall feel sorry for mate !
Sadly for teh first time EVER - No Labour spkesman was available to answer Questions on BBC “Politics Live” !
And the Conservatives do not seem even to be writing a manifesto !
But then - neither is Brexit !
MArtin Daubney (Brexit) came over quite well but was a bit nerped about being called a “Village Idiot”
They ganged up on him towards the end and he didn’t seem to be well enough briefed to call them on it - Sad they wouldn’t have got away with that by Farage.
But hey Politics is Politics - He’ll learn !
I like what Melanie Phillips had to say " I think the Conservative Party has forgotten what it is that it ia suppose d to conserve" - It has been spooked by the cultural hegemoneity of the left so now we have teh Labour Party occupying what used to be called the Hard left and teh Conservatives occupying a sort ofmnushy ground which used to be the “Soft Left” ! "
More so love Melanie When she takes on the other 2 women by challenging Theresa Mays "Equality of outcome document! "
I suspected but didn’t KNOW May was "One of those " !
