Two complaints were upheld against him which both claimed Corbyn interfered with the process and had no right to do so. I don't suppose you read the report You are just posting what you have read in the shit press.
Ironically the report brought out the facts on how Blairites in the party held up the process deliberately to delay to make Corbyn look ineffective so he can be attacked.
But that's another story.


No. Of course I didn't read the "860 page report". Did anybody? Don't tell me - you did? You're reading the wrong stuff L. Try Moby Dick.

I'm posting what I read in the shit press? That being - just like the great man himself's thinking - any media article which doesn't reflect the approved agenda. Articles from the same source which do being acceptable of course. Hypocrisy.

Here's a couple of summaries of the EHRC investigation/report - from the shit Guardian and shit BBC:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... tisemitism

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-54731222

Correct me if I'm wrong - I'm not going to spend a lot of time (certainly in reading an 800+ page report) on this - but the only other investigation into a political party the EHRC has undertaken was the BNP, which ended up in the High Court IIRC.

Look though. Why are we even talking about this? Although I'm sure you found his political views wonderful, Jeremy Corbyn was such an obviously inappropriate candidate for PM of the UK on multiple fronts. He didn't go down because of some incidental report on members of the Labour Party's Jew-bashing. He simply wasn't the sort of person people wanted in No 10. You have a very myopic left-wing view of your average British voter.

Corbyn was widely perceived as a clown. A man who gave every appearance of hating his country and supporting just about anybody, anywhere with a similar view. One of his qualities reflected in the party's worse General Election drubbing for almost a century. He even managed to lose constituencies which had been dyed-in-the-wool Labour heartlands since the 1930s. Activists canvassing on doorsteps reported the same negative mantra, over and over, "not Jeremy Corbyn thank you".

If you're looking for the sort of administration Corbyn represents Lordo I suspect you will die a very old and ultimately disappointed man. Starmer's clearly still struggling to get out from under Corbyn's shadow. Having twice campaigned to make him PM and as the principal architect of Labour's "let's not call it a second referendum" Brexit disaster. Not to mention his very odd "leader of the working man's party" CV.

Enough on 2019 and Corbyn? You always have 2024 to look forward to.

Never read the book but listen to the song.

As to 2024 the fuckers fucked up the north too and the south is no better. So I am not so sure how much I will enjoy it with all around me suffering. But I shall endeavor to do what I can to help.

Now this is enjoyable.

Keith Moon or John Entwistle. Nobody knows which one said it.

Back in 1968 they were saying they want to leave the Who and were talking about setting up a group with Page and Jones.

As far as I can recall (I stuck to the no Googling, too) Jimmy Page was the last lead guitarist of the Yardbirds. They were going to call themselves "The New Yardbirds". Keith Moon said he thought they would go down like a lead balloon. The rest being history.

Bring it on. 8) :lol:

Noooooooooo The Moon and Entwistle were saying that they wanted to leave the who and form a supper group with Page and Jones. That is when Moon said if they formed the super group it would bomb like a Lead Zepplin. The name New Yardbirds was used for a very short while for about 7 or 8 concerts which the old Yardbird were not going to honour. The band members were the same ones who went on to use Led Zepplin. Dreja actually refused them permission to use the name New Yardbirds. Which is when Page asked Moon if he could call his new band Lead Zepplin. But of course the name was slightly changed because it sounded better.
