    Thats why said Blair's Labour and not Blair, with such staunch left views you would be at pains to contribute towards the election of a right sided leader though? Or does that not count now?

    To paraphrase LBJ, "I think it's better to stay inside the tent tinkling out, than to be outside the tent, tinkling in."

    As were 3m voters. You are like those life long presidents of golf clubs that see the membership dwindle but it's still run the way you and your mates like it. Well it was under Corbyn.

    The party lost wholesale support it's why they championed the younger voters because they knew those of any sensible age knew Corbyn is a nut job

    Yeah cause the best way to attract new members is to say, "well the greens are crap, the club rooms are decrepit, I'm the president and I'm a clam... sign here." Which appears to be your strategy for resurrecting Labour. Ha, ha.

    No, I resented Blair and thought he was a war criminal, but unlike you I can distinguish between a mass organization form a single member. British Labour is bigger than Blair, or Corbyn or any individual. But again there are different standards applied to labour, as some think Johnson is a perfectly respectable chap.

    Look what I wrote about Johnson. People have no qualms about voting for his party and he's Prime Minister for gods sake.

    No mine is don't anti of what Corbyn was doing, clean the party from it's clear issues, something Kier is doing and at pace. Another is to engage and not abuse or label people, this was a clear issue and TBH you follow that typically Corbyn baby in that you get personal and abusive, that doesn't breed party progression, it's proved globally to stop it.

    In seriousness you attrbute my name to a post about Bullying which I have never been, you disagree with me that's fine, the personal nature you chose earlier was not and ironically you are showing the signs of bullying and belittling because you don't agree.

    Personally that side of engagement where your wrongfully attributing me to certain things without proof namely the bully side I would ask you to stop a it's become an issue for me. I ask that these posts stop as you are wrong with your tone and also the your not Labour side, you don't have to believe it but I'm telling you wholeheartedly I have been Labour all my life, there is no reason in my mind to dig me out weekly un provoked like today.

    Where in this conversation did I abuse you? I defended you at the outset. You took umbrage at me describing you as a life long Labour voter. Never once did I associate you with bullying either. You are just making stuff up. I said "I hope nobody accuses you of being a bully." But if you are having issues I will go easy on you from now on. I don't want to be the bane of some poor sod's existence and I would hate to think that anyone is taking things really to heart. I'm sorry if that is the case.. :)
