My beloved Labour says 'Goodbye' to its destroyer today ....

    The party I love and have seen destroyed in the last few years by bumbling incompetence, ill-thought-through, ridiculous policies and a failure to inspire the country waves goodbye in Parliament today to the blinkered in-denial person who reigned supreme over this complete mess. Please join me in raising a glass to him, thank him for his efforts (however poor) and say a little prayer, that we never see him anywhere near a shadow government again, or any of the cronies who followed him around. Go back! Go back to the backbenches and ideally beyond, and do not return.

    Either we want to lead the country or we don't. It's time for Tony's Return.

    You're not fooling anyone you know. It's obvious you are a right wing troll.

    That's nice.
    Makes up for not being able to go to the pub on Sunday at 2pm and be accosted by a random who's already been stuck to the bar for three hours.

    Two elections lost. Love him or not it's obviously time to go.
    He strikes me as a decent man. Unfortunately, by record not a unifying leader. Has he made Labour more electable? I think not.

    What a rather pompous OP. Lets all be Tories now is it ? is that what you are saying? Im staggered that you get so personal about a man who is principled and decent. Unless you are a Daily Mail reporter?

    The Labour leadership contest seems to have gone on longer than any Brexit thread I or others may have started.

    Decent? Principled? I want decent and principled policies, which can only come from a Labour Party actually in power. He selfishly grabbed power, inserted cronies into a shadow government backed by hard left thugs from Momentum, by the analysis of Labour grandees couldn't lead anyone out of a paper bag, then blamed everyone except himself for the worst election result in history. He has done more damage than was thought possible and we can already kiss the next election goodbye we are so far behind.

    There is nothing heroic about total failure.

    Let's make Labour electable and bring back Tony. Or do you want more Corbynites ruling the roost deluding themselves?

    I think that he was needed to get rid of the Iraq War stench and nudge the party back towards the left. Labour needed to stand for something again after the vagueness of late Blairism.

    The problem was the two elections. If the party had gotten fully behind him then he could have been reasonably ousted after the first failed election, ironically all the failed attempts to get unfairly get rid of him just gave him a reason to stay in office for longer.

    I fear that Keir Starmer is going to win, I found him very generic and uninspiring in the debates, he'll be a caretaker leader as Boris is getting a second full term as long as the Coronavirus death rate isn't dramatically larger than comparable countries.

    Lisa Nandy surprised me with her straight answers and actual plans, I think she is what is needed to fix Labour and could challenge Boris next election if elected. She won't be though.

    Rebecca Long-Bailey sounded like an empty corporate mouthpiece, she talked a lot but didn't say anything.

    In Liverpool, we would have called Corbyn's style as 'a fur coat and no knickers' sort if he was a woman. On the surface good but underneath a few foundations. and little to hide embarrassment.
    From the start, I have NEVER like Corbyn and have stated so many times.
    The great shame is a great party has diminished in a shadow of its former self, Those they are picking seem to have little to offer but I hope they do as the country need a decent opposition party(s) to balance up the Tories.
    In the days ahead I hope Labour gets decent leaders and not some Trotskyites manipulating the way its heading.

    He was elected by thousands of people, enhanced democracy in the Party, and you want just to have another Tory Party as an Opposition Party. I see your point but please dont come all holier than thou about a guy like Blair. Dear me. When will people ever learn?

    I expect there will be a few sad faces in Tory Central Office when Corbyn finally gives up his "leadership".

    He may have been elected by thousands of people but history suggests they were wrong to elect him.

    Not as many as you seem to think as Labour has 7% public school folks in their rank
