Never lose sight of the fact that, however well he may have behaved/performed on one occasion, he is still a politician. Treat them all with the same degree of caution is my motto. In almost every case, what you see is just an act and it takes time to reveal what is hidden behind the false front.One of my lads had a lot of dealings with the mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena bombing. He thought that he was a good guy, practical, sensitive, decisive and appeared to have integrity. Maybe not a bad shout!
Hi Win,Aye your right there mate! They will probably opt for another unelectable space cadet! They have some great ideas then they choose a complete Loon to implement them! I don't think they will ever learn!
Pat I’d like to believe you but this interview is just the same blurb as usual blaming everyone else and claiming to have been held back. Never known a QC not to get involved in a worthwhile cause so doesn’t seem logical also,1: Kier Starmer.
2 Not Kier Starmer
Quite agree Rich, Long-Bailey is just Corbyn in a dress! Starmer I could buy. He is intelligent, bright and appears sensible. But as I am someone with reasonably old fashioned values, I question why a person who is a QC would want to lead the Labour Party? It is a bit like a Premier League footballer empathising with homeless people, even doing a street sleep with them, then getting into his Bentley Continental and driving to his 12 bedroom mansion in Cheshire!MsDonnell is promoting Rebecca Long-Bailey, another socialist blow back to student politics who would be a disaster for Labour. Choosing her would yet again show Labour to be promoting their outdated agenda and ignoring the Needs of their target voters. The new leader must be mainstream.
. Never known a QC not to get involved in a worthwhile cause so doesn’t seem logical also,
how can s QC work side by side with hard core socialists?
Clement Attlee and Tony Blair were both Barristers, and were highly successful at winning elections and maintaining Socialist ideals as far as was prudent in order to keep the confidence of their party and of the electorate in general.
I would expect Keir Starmer to do the same, or indeed, Emily Thornberry, also a barrister, and who it seems has laid her sling for the party leader's job.
