Didn't cover himself in glory on Tyne Tees news tonight. He does talk to Darlo taxi drivers though apparently.

Labour are doing so badly in the polls that they've got no chance in the next election
I know many on here won't agree, but I think Corbyn as leader is a big factor in this

He seems like a genuine enough guy… I’m guessing if you met him the pub you could have a very good conversation with him.

but my god he is beige personified.

Corbyn is not leader. What happened to all those clowns who said "can't vote for Corbyn but if Labour had a different leader I would vote for them". Are they telling the pollsters porkies or was that an excuse to hide the shame of voting Tory. And yes I mean shame.

I read last week that Labour are negotiating freedom of movement for touring musicians across the EU. I know they can't enact that without tory support but it is an excellent political move by Labour taking the negotiated deal to parliament. It does a couple of things. First it will be difficult for tory back benchers to disagree with the policy change and if they do there will be a large, vocal, popular group of musicians willing to call the government or. If they agree with the policy, Labour have delivered an improved brexit whilst in opposition so why not let them govern.

It may be the first step in labour addressing the pooh storm that is Brexit, and it needs addressing.

It would appear his acting General Secretary is running the **** show right now. Fingers crossed his appointment is shown the back door at the conference, if he hasn't banned all delegates already by then.

Corbyn is only a negative factor for Labour amongst the sizeable minority of the public who are too thick to think for themselves and have to make voting choices on what the fcuking Sun or Daily Mein Kampf tell them!

It looks like the current change with HGV drivers is down to Johnson not wanting to look bad. The cabinet are against the move. I can't see niche/minority industries getting Tory support, particularly as agriculture, something more in the public eye, didn't get what they wanted this harvest season.

You may be right but even if back benchers vote against it, you will have a load of musicians p****d off at the government and given the topsy Turvey world we live in a singer would carry a lot of weight with the public because.. Well because the public listen to people of the telly as depressing as that is.

He’s been gifted this remarkable opportunity. Things are falling apart, with an evidence trail that exposes the current government’s total responsibility for a series abysmal choices by which we’ve arrived at this point. Also it is going to get worse.
The Labour Party conference is happening now. You think, how can they fail to land a devastating blow.
If they can’t…they deserve nothing.
