They can't. Red Ed Miliband's new rules mean Corbyn is leader probably as long as he wants to be.

A Parliamentary Labour Party vote of confidence rejected him by 170 to 40. He retained the leadership due to the party membership voting. You could vote for the leader basically for the price of a cheese sandwich, on your smartphone, lying on your bed. You were even allowed to join the party to vote after the leadership contest had started.

Corbyn has the worst approval ratings of any opposition leader in history.

The irony is .................................Milliband's a Jew.

The left under McDonnell are manoeuvering to change the rules further. AFAIU it currently requires 15% of Labour MP's votes in order to enter their leadership contest. McDonnell wants it changed to 5%. In that case, coupled with the Milliband rules, Labour are likely to have a far-left Leader in perpetuity.

all the media is claiming labour cannot win with corbyn and yet they are doing their damnest to replace him. have you considered why? he will walk all over b'stard.

please tell me a single policy you do not like of labour today.

jeremy kunt was on tv last night saying that eu is making a mistake tot accepting the deal b'stard made because he will win in the election.

he may ormay not win, he will not get the deal he is asking for. northern ireland has stopped being purly part of the uk since the good friday agreement. hence uk has no legalright to pull ni out of the eu nor to ask ireland to have an all ireland market as she is part of the eu. these are all childish demands of a politically immature assholes.

if b'stard commands a majority he can do as he wishes for the rest of the uk. it wil be the uk that will pay the biggest price not the eu. kant was smiling as he was speaking. what an asshole.

this is where education is so important. you are easily fooled by the media. you have no understanding of what is going on.

labour party members elect their leader so no he cannot be a leader as long as he wanted, blair was.
yes the mps voted against him but they each have 1 vote, and there are 500,000 members.
you have to make the effort to understand why the media who is owned by just a few corproations and netenyahu is against corbyn. this is what i mean by education. you eat the shit crapped out by the media and just repeat it.

in 2017 corbyn was 20% behind tories and all his shadow cabinet was leaving the cabinet some live on air to embarass him to the maximum with the campaign the bbc run against corbyn.
corbyn is not antisemite he is just not friendly with israel. he also supports the palastenians right to self determination. this is the reason why he is being attacked by the friends of israel thugs.

don't talk shit.

The Labour party needs a leader that has the backing of his MPs, it needs a leader with at least an ounce of charisma , a leader that looks as if he has the stature to lead the country. Corbin has none. All his has is that stupid....beard. The man is a liability to the Labour party. He is the reason a No confidence vote hasn't as yet taken place because he is adamant that he and only he can form a national unity government

So on one hand we have a Clown and on the other another ....clown. Never dreamed that the once great nation would sink so low. Bring back Blair !! At least the man had charisma if nothing else.

Prior to 2014 Labour MPs held a third of votes for their leader. The membership another and Trade Unions the rest. Milliband changed it to one member one vote, fundamentally altering the dynamics of their leadership selection and basically letting in the looney left. Sure enough, what happened was thousands of Citizen Smiths signed up and, having only been members for 5 minutes, voted for Corbyn. Thus, a man demonstrably disliked by the vast majority of his own Parliamentary party and despised by much of the electorate retained its leadership and is in essence unassailable. Those facts have regularly been demonstrated in a host of polls over the past few years.

As far as anti-semitism goes Labour are being investigated by the EHRC, the only political party ever to be so, other than the BNP. Over 30 Labour Party staff whistleblowers have been testifying to how the party, under Corbyn, has turned a blind eye, or swept complaints under the carpet. People who have devoted their entire political lives to Labour have been quitting in disgust.

If you spent less time posting your views on “shit” and a bit more mastering the English language people might take your personal Blog a little more seriously. :wink:

thanks but no thanks. labour party needs a leader that wil impleent the policies passed by the party. the reason why labour lost in 2010 and 15 was precisely becasue leaders did not care about the membership. once corby came to power suddenly double the membership.

did you know that th enumber of people who voted for labour in 2017 and 1997 were about the same. the reson why blair won a majority and corbyn did not was the liberal party. in 1997 liberals were at about 20% by 2017 they dropped to less than 10%. now that liberals are up atabout 20% corbyn can easily win. especially after tories declare they are going to have a no-deal policy to implement as they are incapable of negotiating a deal.

As to his looks, don't be silly. As to no confidence vote, you are clearly not following the news. 21 tories have said they will not vote against their government before 19th. the liberlas will not join either. it is customary for the oppostion leader to take over if the government loses a no-confidence vote and they win it. quite what it is the liberals are objecting to corby as unfit to be pm. they should say what it is they do not like about the labour policies as corbyn is only following what th ememebrship has voted for.
you stil have not said which labour policy you object to.

When the extension has been requested from the EU and granted you will see sterling recover to some noticeable degree. The price movements are not related to how well Johnson is or is not doing politically but simply to what the chance is of a no deal exit happening or not. Chances of no deal happening, by design or by mistake increase and sterling falls. Chances of that being averted increase and sterling increases.

There is one and only one reason as to Sterling performance. BREXIT.
The financial markets are not driven by emotional pseudo patriotism, they react purely on financial reasons. The markets consider Brexit as bad for the UK economy, just as I and millions of others do. If Brexit does happen then Sterling will fall fat below it's present levels. If an extension is granted then Sterling will rise and should article 50 be revoked Stetling will rise to it's pre referendum level.
Financial markets , globally, consider Brexit as catastrophic for the UK economy.
The idiots who think that our economy will ....thrive ie Paphitis, are just simply ignorant , just as he was when he stated that his debts are tax deductible. The EU is the world's largest trading block, leaving it will be detrimental to pur economy with severe economic consequences .
