Dave, it is binary.
You either agreed with Steve or me. She did or she didn't.

You never have any problem agreeing with Steve, but you could not bring yourself to say that he was wrong and I was right, and that is all this is.
Not rocket science.
Your denial just makes you look even more ridiculous.

It is not too late to tell us if you think Steve was right after all.
Do you think her comments including "The Jews are rallying" were not anti-Semitic even though she says they were.
Do you think she did not advocate transportation, even though she says she did.

"Before Corbyn appointed Keeley to the shadow cabinet, she said of him:"the current state of the party means we will not be able to mount an effective front bench opposition." Quite…

Hard to believe she is the mental health shadow secretary! Is her next promotion to shadow educashun secretary. I hope she is literate because she surely ain't numerate."


There hasn't been numerate in the Labour Party since it was formed. Their track record in Government has been consistently woeful.

On the Venezuela thing - I dare say to such as Corbyn and McDonnell Maduro's handling of Venezuela's economical and political problems is without fault - nothing must stand in the way of "socialist" ideology - the ruination of the country he was elected to govern must only be considered as merely a small price to pay along with the inevitable downward spiral. Corbyn and McDonnell would do the same to the UK in the blink of an eye.

Times today,
"Corbyn is under pressure from MPs and socialist politicians in Europe to condemn personally President Maduro's violent regime in Venezuela.
British MPs from all parties called last night for the Labour leader to speak out after his historical support for the state's leadership. "

Labour MP Angela Smith, "I hope that my party leadership will as soon as possible condemn what's happening in the country and call for the release of opposition party political prisoners," she said.
Graham Jones, another Labour MP and chairman of the group, said: "I believe everybody in the Labour Party should condemn the Venezuelan regime because the first duty of any state is to look after its citizens. Venezuela has failed."

little gnomie.
All news is old news. The future cannot be news because it has not yet happened and therefore facts cannot be discussed.
b) I did not know you had to be a journalist to report news. Do you also need a degree in meedja studies? or does it have to be a mmember in good standing with assorted little gnomes.
c) The thread title is uk labour party discussion, what relevance is being an mp or nor an mp?

As you pathetic offering adds nothing to the discussion, only inanities, I presume you just popped in for a troll

Anyway here a little rabbit for the ferrets to chew on.
"Labour's shadow mental health minister Barbara Keeley claimed she was "confused about" her "Jeremys" when she appeared to contradict Jez's stated position on free movement this morning. During a bumpy media round, 5 Live's Nicky Campbell asked Keeley:

    Campbell: "Jeremy Corbyn has been explicit in saying that freedom of movement must end. That puts us up the creek without a paddle doesn't it?"

    Keeley: "Well it makes the situation worse."

    Campbell: "So why has he said it must end, freedom of movement?"

    Keeley: "It's a strange thing… it's a strange thing that he said that."

When Campbell pointed out that she was at odds with Corbyn's public position, Keeley rowed back and claimed she had in fact been talking about Jeremy Hunt, saying: "You've confused me about Jeremys". Lucky they had the same name, eh…

An hour earlier, Keeley did a Diane on ITV's Good Morning Britain, claiming that a 1% increase in public sector pay would cost £460 billion. The IFS says increasing public sector pay by 1% would cost between £1.5 and 2 billion. To be fair, she was only out by £458 billion…

Before Corbyn appointed Keeley to the shadow cabinet, she said of him:"the current state of the party means we will not be able to mount an effective front bench opposition." Quite…

Hard to believe she is the mental health shadow secretary! Is her next promotion to shadow educashun secretary. I hope she is literate because she surely ain't numerate.

Today the Labour party was in trouble over remarks one of its MPs, Naz Shah, made online in 2014 ". Trouble is will all of that, as you seem to need most things explaining to you is that:

A) It is old news
B) It is written by someone who cannot be described as a journalist and

I did used to think it was a debate, Keith, but your mate Teribus put me right. If there is one useful thing he has done it is to open my eyes to that fact. I should have realised myself because these threads obviously do not follow the rules of debate and while I did try my best to help put that right I will be the first to admit that I failed to do so. I believe Teribus was referring to the following bits of information about Mudcat

www.mudcat.org

Dave,
It has been stated quite categorically that this is not a debating forum

Really? By who?
Dispute, debate, discussion, call it what you will.
The fact is that you people can produce nothing to support your case or challenge mine.
So you lose.
Labour has a serious problem with anti-Semitism, and other parties do not.

Like Steve you resort to pedantic debate on the precise meanings of words rather than their context and intended meaning.
Some examples of people debating Mudcat debates:

Steve Shaw, 04 Mar 17 - 06:40 PM .... When I am on a Christian web site and someone starts ranting about homosexuals, I quietly exit ...... I'm all for the rough and tumble of vicious debate, but that's not what is happening now.

Steve,
"Apparently it did not convey what I intended."
Lie. You intended to convey exactly what you said,


Then why did I withdraw it as soon as you drew my attention to it?

I have conceded that point. Move on.

Dave,
    the action or process of talking about something in order to reach a decision or to exchange ideas:

The fact remains that you people can produce nothing to support your case or challenge mine.
So you lose.
Labour has a serious problem with anti-Semitism, and other parties do not.

"Apparently it did not convey what I intended."

Lie. You intended to convey exactly what you said, an untruth of epic proportions, and your "adjusted" statement is completely different. You know it, I know it. So give over. Say one for me.

Again more pointless passive-aggressive shit from our little fat gnome.

Dave, debate, discussion, call it what you will.

Another perfect example of using words to suit what you mean I'm afraid, Keith.

dis|cus¦sion
[dɪˈskʌʃ(ə)n]
NOUN

    the action or process of talking about something in order to reach a decision or to exchange ideas:
    "the committee acts as a forum for discussion"

debate
dɪˈbeɪt/
noun
noun: debate; plural noun: debates

    1.
    a formal discussion on a particular matter in a public meeting or legislative assembly, in which opposing arguments are put forward and which usually ends with a vote.


The two are not the same thing at all. Only a debate results in winners or losers and that is usually decided by a vote. It has been stated quite categorically that this is not a debating forum and this thread is blatantly (or is it categorically?) not a debate. I could be unkind and say that you only try to debate on here because you have either been evicted from all proper debating forums of you know very well that you would not stand a cat in hell's chance in a real debate. But I do not have any facts to back that up so I will not.

Just keep insisting that you have won. We will keep ignoring you and that way everyone is happy.
