What Teribus has said is not in the same category as the language used by Jim, Dave and Steve......Racist, Fascist, Homophobe. as twenty times worse than calling someone stupid of even moronic.....but you don't realise how insulting your language is and moderators allow you to get away with it.

If, when President Obama was elected, someone had opened a thread to garner insulting nicknames, it would have been quite rightly closed immediately.......The Trump nickname thread is still up and running....and is contributed to by people who run this "unbiased" forum

You start of aggressively and react badly when somebody replies in kind.
Your latest list of aggression, which you choose to ignore, is a tiny tip of years of abuse you have directed at people - "fuckwit", "moron", "made up shit" and permanent talking down to people is long established
standard practice for you.
Nobody behaves like you on this forum - you are on your own in your insulting and abusive behaviour (I don't count Bobad and other trolls - they don't have the balls to hang around for any length of time)
It would help if you brought anything to these discussions, but what little you might have to say is swamped into nothingness by you ugly arrogance - you know nothing and attempt to cover up your ignorance with bullying - as all bullies do.
This latest has been because you were presented with a number of facts you can't deal with - a typical response of yours
I suggest we move on and allow you to stew in your own bile - this is not what these discussions should be about

Hey Raggy, before you are forced into the uncomfortable position of admitting that you are wrong - read down through JOM's list detailed in his post of Jim Carroll - 18 Jan 17 - 04:16 AM - then cut'n'paste the bit where I have called him a "moron" - that is what you accused me of wasn't it?

I see, and no doubt others will have noted it as well, that at no time on this thread have I ever referred to Jim Carroll as a "moron".

You said that you found that unacceptable, "abusive in the extreme" you said. OK Raggy let us see how much honesty and integrity you possess - in his post Jim Carroll implied that I was a "moron" now let us see your post condemning him. Don't panic Raggy I know from your track record that you are a hypocrite and that you do not possess any honesty or integrity, so the response to my request will be silence.

He appears to have not come to terms with the fact that he is the most arrogant, least knowledgeable member of this forum - his arrogance is an attempt to mask his ignorance.

Ah Christmas after wading through your usual pointless and ill-informed waffle it becomes abundantly clear that you simply didn't bother reading Trevelyan's letter then?

your words Christmas - not mine

so can we leave the inaccurate, hysterical, emotive, histrionics at the door.

You might have read Christmas, but your only problem is that you don't understand what it is you are reading
What's the matter Christmas you seem to stuttering or frothing a great deal today?

Yes it was Christmas

Just how pathetic can you get Christmas.

Ah Christmas:

You might have read Christmas, but your only problem is that you don't understand what it is you are reading

Ehmm Christmas

I normally do not respond Christmas because what you write is normally a complete and utter load of B'll'cks.

If you wish to make a point you should at least take the trouble and pay sufficient attention to correcting your mistakes before pressing the submit button - Pardon me for not guessing what it was you actually meant to write.

Don't know about you Christmas

Christmas:

Your bias, bigotry and hypocrisy are showing again Christmas.

Christmas,

Apples to Oranges Christmas.

Christmas:

Christmas:

Contains not one single word written by you Christmas

Examples of your mealy-mouthed waffle in response to a fairly direct and simple question:

Are you totally incapable of making your mind up on anything?

You have provided no answers at all Christmas just pointless waffle.
You keep prattling on

More pointless, massive, self-contradictory, unattributed, cut'n'pastes then Christmas? Pity that you couldn't master the art of presenting them just a little bit better.

Nielsen Christmas?

Awwww Christmas!!!

Don't worry Christmas, I will not hold my breath waiting for you to back up that accusation

From this thread or any other for that matter Christmas

Ehmmmm Not exactly true Christmas - you have deliberately sought to misrepresent the situation once more.

So then Christmas taking all of that into account:

Now that would suggest to me Christmas

Stop wriggling Christmas

Ehmmmm NO Christmas

Any substantive evidence at all to back that one up Christmas?

When it comes ability related to reading things and understanding what they are saying, believe me I do not need help from anyone - wish that the same could be said about you.

Here's how it seems to work Christmas - you post a load of idiotic, far-fetched, emotive, hysterical crap, most of it just made up - and then I take you to task for it - I then pull you up further on it and then you call me nasty names and sulk.

Rule Book Christmas?? What on earth are you going on about?

Now Christmas as YOU have brought this up:

Given up on the preposterous accusations and claims of deliberate genocide put forward by your good-self Christmas #

Policies leading to the famine Christmas?

Ready for your next question Christmas

OK then Christmas just to get the terminology correct and make it chrystal clear for ANYBODY that is still following this farce:

Now then Christmas let us review what you think the British Government should have done

Only a moron states that the "magnificent seven" of 1916 did not collude with the Germans in the face of a stack of evidence as high as the bloody Matterhorn that they did - again one of yours.

In that case Carroll learn to state what you actually mean.

If you state that so-and-so resigns from whatever negotiations it DOES MEAN exactly that - i.e. that negotiations are currently in progress.

If you state that so-and-so resigns his position prior to the commencement of negotiations then negotiations have clearly not started.

Unfortunately, while Jeremy is leader the old guard in Labour, i.e. those two-time losing Blairites and Brownites, will always militate against unity in the party. Split parties are always doomed. I should like to predict that Jeremy will recognise this quite soon, step down gracefully and we'll see Keir Starmer take the helm. He's stayed responsibly loyal to the leadership yet doesn't have any of that New Labour taint. A shoo-in, I'd say. Not saying that's what I'd want but I can't see things staying as they are for very long. Corbyn's unspun integrity will never prevail against the current tidal wave of hubris, shallowness, populism and the tabloids, sad to say.

You don't "educate" people for changing society, you win them by standing with them on everyday problems - any political aprty I have ever come into contact with knows that - if yoiu were ecer parft of the CP, you know that that is what the "British Road to Socialism" was all about.
Your stupid, stupid, stupid suggestion that people will one day wake up and find that they need socialism - or whatever, is a guarantee thayt things will never change

Jim, you don't seem to "get it", You don't blame bears for shitting in the woods   :0)


The capitalist system is based on profit making and wealth production.
If YOU want a "free" society with social "rights" for every weird minority under the sun and a benefits system for those who have been made redundant......just like your left wing "liberal" Utopia.....you must accept the darker side of the coin. It seems to me you have already accepted it, but just feel that you need to make the right noises to convince people that you are a real socialist.

Socialism is a must for the future as resources dry up and the population ages....but don't kid yourself it will be any kind of paradise...people will do as they are told, if they break the rules they will suffer, the wealth gap will disappear, but the poor will be no better off........it will be about survival Jim.

I will never see Socialism, but at least I understand it and see the way to move towards it......the road is called education, and "liberalism" is a six bar gate on that road.

I must admit that I do have a worry about the current leadership. Nothing to do with antisemitism or any of the tripe that the media are trying to use to discredit Corbyn, but his lack of action. The NHS seems to be being systematically demolished by the present administration but the opposition seem to be doing little or nothing about it. Junior doctors were presented as the bad guys in the recent dispute and, more recently, GPs are being attacked. And no one seems to be standing up for them.

Yes, the economy is vitally important and Brexit is taking up all the news but, let's face it, that is a done deal and neither the governing party nor the opposition can do anything about it. The opposition should however be fighting tooth and nail for the NHS and other social services to be not only saved but improved.

Just in my opinion.

"Good heavens:"
Pompously strutting as ever, I see
"If they do not wish to recognise that the country and the world today bears no resemblance at all to the one that existed when the Labour Party was created"
You mean back when we had industries and a future
The merging of the political parties has put a stop to that and taken away any chance of development - the British political system has stagnated and democratic choice has become meaningless - how could it be anything else when you are voting for the same policies in different clothes.
Politics has become a career move for politicians and has as little to do with democracy and working for the people as the church has for Christian philosophy
"and only 40 of them actually support the "Great Leader""
My point exactly - the leadership is totally out of step with its own membership, as the votes for Corbyn have shown - no party can boast about that - it takes a extremity right-wing moronic post -Tebbinite opponent to do that.
Antisemitism has been proven so firmly that those who claimed it have been unable to describe it or to quantify it.
Proof positive of its non-existence has been that the leading claimants on this forum have been our in-house Klanners - when they claim something, turn the stone over and look underneath
Unless, of course, Keith and his hangers on's herculean efforts to prove its existence are due to his love of Socialism and his concern for the people!!
"Strange thing to say about the world's fifth largest economy Jim."
Again - my point exactly
We have an unstable economy, no industry, are totally reliant on exports and we have just cut of our nose to spite our face by closing the doors on the possibility of those seeking work finding it elsewhere.
Our economy is geared to making the rich richer and in order to achieve that, working people have no voice in the workplace, no security or choice of employment - zero contracts and an accelerating gap between haves and have nots has become the norm - despite our being "the world's fifth largest economy"
Our greatest import is finance.
Labour has been wiped out in Scotland - doesn't that underline my point
Want to tell me how well the Tories are doing up there?
No- thought not!!
The economists have predicted that it will take at least a decade before the economy stabalises, and even then, it will have fallen considerably below that of pre-Brexit - it hasn't just stagnated it has fallen - no capitalist system, which depends on security and constant growth, can maintain itself in that situation.
The inability of past Governments, Labour and Conservative, to maintain a steady, growing economy has always been the greatest propaganda weapon of their opponents at election time - now insecurity and lack of predictability have become built-in aspects of the system
"Hate to have to point this out to you Jim but to-date there have been NO negotiations related to the UK leaving the EU."
Who asid there was - that has been the farce of Britain's leaving - no preparation, no proper discussion, no plans - just a flag-wagging display of "little Britainism" which is likely to turn into "Little Englandism" if Scotland and Northern Ireland leave The Union, which Brexit has now opened the door to.
Now, how about dropping the pompous belligerence and addressing some real facts - your strutting used to be amusing, now it is somewhat pathetic gesturing
Please don't my my joke about a "pecking order" a reality - discussion groups don't need such things.

Good heavens:

1: "Labour has decided to live up to the principles that it was first created for in order to give the electorate a genuine choice rather than the same policy under different names - takes a lot of courage to do that"

"Courage" or complete lack of common sense? If they do not wish to recognise that the country and the world today bears no resemblance at all to the one that existed when the Labour Party was created, that is their affair but in doing so they must know that they will not win any elections on that ticket.

2: "It has fought off a coup by right wing career politicians who wish to keep it as a meal ticket for themselves"

The Parliamentary Labour Party consists of 230 Labour MPs, of whom 172 of them according to Jim Carroll are "right-wing career politicians" and only 40 of them actually support the "Great Leader". What a strange party it must be.

3: "They have fought off dishonest accusations of antisemitism instigated by a foreign power, and supported by the career politicians and proved those accusations groundless - takes a lot of dedication to do that."

Instigated by the resignation of the co-chairman of the Oxford University Labour Club on the stated grounds that Jewish members of said club no longer felt safe enough to attend its meetings. Which begs the question what instigation from what foreign power? Unless of course Labour's own National Executive Committee are a foreign power because they were the ones that commissioned and empowered not one but two Inquiries into the matter, it was the NEC who suspended at least 50 members of the Labour Party {Tell me Jim has Ken Livingston been returned to the fold yet?} Suspended the activities of at least four Constituency Labour Groups/Parties and Jim, Shaw & Co., all want us to believe it was all over nothing - pull the other one.

4: "Now they have to win an electorate over for genuine change instead of the same old same old which has bankrupt Britain - let's see what happens."

Strange thing to say about the world's fifth largest economy Jim. The Labour Governments of Blair and Brown made the most concerted effort since the end of the Second World War to bankrupt the UK but fortunately they failed. Labour have been defeated in the last two UK General Elections, they have been wiped out in Scotland where the Conservatives now form the major opposition to the SNP, and under Corbyn Labour looks as though they will remain out of office until the "Great Leader" is replaced. To influence matters Corbyn's Union backers are flexing their muscle but all they seem to be achieving is alienation of the voting public.

5: The Conservatives called a referendum to honour a promise they made to the electorate of the United Kingdom in their election manifesto. To remain in the EU was the official stance of every single political party in the UK with the obvious exception of UKIP, which oddly enough formed no part in the main Leave campaign, made up of Eurosceptic dissidents from the UK's main political parties - Nobody therefore had what you call a back-up plan - why should anybody have to have had one? Everybody thought the electorate would vote to Remain - but they didn't did they? So it takes time to trigger Article 50 and thereafter there are at least two-and-a-half years of negotiations until Brexit becomes a reality (All of that was known before the referendum).

6: "Economic wobble"??

We are doing far better than anyone in the EU, especially those within the Eurozone. The Treasury along with Carney and the Bank of England have been forced by events to retract their pre-Brexit Referendum "doom'n'gloom" predictions.   

7: "British ambassador resigns from European negotiations blaming the heavy handedness of the "control freak" Prime minister - Britain left without a voice in European negotiation."

Hate to have to point this out to you Jim but to-date there have been NO negotiations related to the UK leaving the EU.

8: Your predictions as to how the next decade will unfold are uninformed and run counter to what most analysts economists think.

"Recently Labour have got themselves in one terrible muddle trying to get to grips with what their voter base considers important"
Labour has decided to live up to the principles that it was first created for in order to give the electorate a genuine choice rather than the same policy under different names - takes a lot of courage to do that
It has fought off a coup by right wing career politicians who wish to keep it as a meal ticket for themselves, so they have had two leadership elections, each time winning a decision for change - it takes plenty of balls to do that
They have fought off dishonest accusations of antisemitism instigated by a foreign power, and supported by the career politicians and proved those accusations groundless - takes a lot of dedication to do that.
Now they have to win an electorate over for genuine change instead of the same old same old which has bankrupt Britain - let's see what happens.
On the other hand, the Tories called a referendum without a backup plan in case the decision was to leave Europe - an absolute shambles, resignation of a Prime Minister,,the appointment of a racist moron as foreign secretary, sharp rise of racist attacks,   economic wobble due to lack of planning and future uncertainty.
British ambassador resigns from European negotiations blaming the heavy handedness of the "control freak" Prime minister - Britain left without a voice in European negotiation.   
British withdrawal from Europe has not only put the future of the United Kingdom at risk, but it will probably take up to ten years for it to break with Europe and when it does, there are no contingency plans to replace the jobs that will no longer be available on the continent - the threat of rising unemployment due to the lack of a British industrial base is likely to destroy the lives of a generation.
The Government decides on a new runway for Heathrow, but have to put in on ice for fear of resignation of MPs.
The situation in the health service has now reached the stage of being described as a humanitarian crisis.
Nearly a year ago, leading members of the Muslim community accuse the Government of Islamophobia - in contrast to Labour's immediate action, the Tories did nothing, the charges have never been investigated.
America has elected a racist, misogynist thug into the White House with the help of Russia and already the establishment suck-holes are tripping over themselves to kiss his ring.
Now who should I vote for - eenie, meanie......?

Covered quite a lot in that last post Shaw. Might no accord with the ill-advised script you tend to follow - but that would come as no great surprise now would it?

That yet another example of the better informed and more knowledgeable group of people (MPs) that Shaw says are better placed to make decisions on our behalf?

Found that most of our current crop of "professional" politicians are only capable of carrying out the instructions given them by their respective whips and for the crowd in power that advice is normally centred around keeping the party in power so that their noses remain firmly stuck in the trough.

Recently Labour have got themselves in one terrible muddle trying to get to grips with what their voter base considers important, they have given up trying to keep track of the number of "U-turns" being made by the "great leader" on free-movement they now have a rev counter. And it apparently hasn't even registered that the political party now firmly in UKIP's sights is Labour not Conservative, if Corbyn stays on as leader the next General Election will be interesting.

Your carefully unlinked claim was from an anti-Corbynite, right winger. Emily Thornbury, who supports the old guard and has a somewhat bizarre record of hypocricy and dishonesty ? what else is such a person going to say?
Jim Carroll
Mugging claims[edit]
In March 2008, Thornberry claimed that almost every child in Islington had been mugged at some stage.[21] This was denied by the Metropolitan Police as 'speculation', pointing out that out of a borough population of 180,000, only 750 people under 18 had reported being the victims of mugging in 2007.[22] However, the comments were deemed a hindrance to Labour London Mayor Ken Livingstone's re-election campaign.[23]
Personal life[edit]
Thornberry has lived in Islington since the early 1990s. In July 1991 she married fellow-barrister Sir Christopher Nugee, of Wilberforce Chambers,[62] in Tower Hamlets, and they have two sons (born December 1991 and July 1999) and a daughter (born November 1993). Nugee later became a Queen's Counsel, then a High Court Judge, when he wasknighted (whereupon she became formally styled Lady Nugee MP, a title she does not use).[63] Since 1993 they have lived on Richmond Crescent, Barnsbury, where Tony Blairalso lived until the 1997 general election, moving in on the same day as the Blairs.[64] Thornberry also part-owns properties in Guildford and South London.[54][65]
In April 2005, it emerged that Thornberry had sent her son to the partially selective Dame Alice Owen's School 14 miles (23 km) away from her home and outside her constituency. The school was formerly based in Islington and still reserves ten per cent of its places for Islington pupils.[66] The Labour Party opposes selection and Thornberry was widely criticised over the issue as a result.[67] Chris Woodhead, the former chief inspector of schools said: "I celebrate her good sense as a parent and deplore her hypocrisy as a politician. When will those who espouse the virtues of comprehensive education apply the logic of their political message to their children?" Later, Thornberry's daughter also attended the school.[68]

In a September 2016 TV interview, whilst serving as shadow foreign minister, Thornberry was asked to name the French foreign minister. Thornberry confirmed that she was unable to name the minister,[49] and accused the interviewer of sexism. Thornberry then asked to discuss the situation of North Korea, so the interviewer asked if she knew who the South Korean president was, but Thornberry did not know, saying that the interview was descending into a pub quiz. Female journalists and politicians, including Isabel Hardman and Ruth Davidson, quickly criticised Thornberry for using an allegation of sexism to cover her own poor performance.[49] Thornberry then appeared on Radio 4 to say that the interview had been sexist because the interviewer had not asked such questions of a man because the interviewer assumed that a man would know the answer.[50] However, the interviewer had previously asked a man, Alan Johnson, comparable factual questions.[51]
Thornberry was interviewed by the British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS). She said: "I have actually quite a lot more experience than people might think I do. As I say I have a member of the armed forces I have a brother-in-law who's a general. I was actually made an honorary lieutenant colonel when I was doing court-martials [sic] when I was a barrister and so I have a certain amount of experience of the military there."[46] The Ministry of Defence denied this claim and Thornberry subsequently admitted she had thought she was made a colonel to have access to the officers' mess, not to appear in courts-martial.[47] During a Labour discussion about the nuclear deterrent, Thornberry admitted that she did not know what the nuclear defence rating, Defcon, is.[48]

I don't know, but some Labour insiders seem to disagree with your version.

Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair's former communications chief, said Mr Hunt's departure from Westminster would be a "big loss," and tweeted: "So many MPs fear Labour going nowhere under Jeremy Corbyn."

Didn't Tory MP, Loise Mensch piss off to work in America not so long ago, citing the difficulties of trying to balance her family life with political commitments, which led to the Tories losing her seat to Labour in the Corby and East Northamptonshire, by-election.
Hasn't Stephen May just resigned from the Tories, stating openly that it was because of Theresa May's handling of Brexit?

Tristram Hunt is a highly-regarded academic who has just been offered his dream job, a once in a lifetime opportunity, at one of the world's greatest museums, so bugger off with your dark theories why don't you, Keith. As a matter of fact, he's quite likely a far better historian than he is a politician, having made a good number of blunders that he's had to explain away and with wacky ideas about public schools, and I'm not exactly sorry to see him go.

Steve, I do not read the Mirror but I try to use Labour supporting papers and there are few left.
Are you saying the Mirror made up the story?

It is almost unheard of for an MP to give up Parliament for real work, but two Labour MPs have in recent weeks.

Huff. Post,
Jeremy Corbyn has declared that he is "not expecting" any more Labour MPs to quit - despite losing two backbenchers within a month.
The Labour leader also denied that he had "lost control" of his Parliamentary party in the wake of the resignation of former Shadow Education Secretary Tristram Hunt.

"Lord David Triesman"
"Baron Triesman, of Tottenham
Member of the Henry Jackson Society's Political Council
The think tank has been described as right-wing and neoconservative.
During its early years, the society called for maintaining "a strong military? armed with expeditionary capabilities with a global reach".
In 2014, Dr Nafeez, an executive director of the Institute for Policy Research & Development stated that the Henry Jackson Society courts corporate, political power to advance a distinctly illiberal oil and gas agenda in the Middle East.
In 2014, Breitbart's managing editor Raheem Kassam was an Associate Fellow at the Henry Jackson Society (HJS), where he headed up the Student rights campaign, the HJS-funded and based project which was widely criticised as anti-Muslim and right-wing.
According to the Huffington Post, some key Henry Jackson Society personnel, including associate director Douglas Murray, have made many statements that have led to accusations of anti-Muslim bigotry. Douglas Murray, the associate director of HJS, is the author of "Neoconservatism: Why We Need It" book and has been described as a neoconservative.
Marko Attila Hoare, a former senior member of the Henry Jackson Society, left the organisation in 2012 because of its "anti-Muslim" and "anti-immigration" views.
In 2015, the British Spinwatch group, SNP, Greens and human rights lawyer Niall McCluskey urged Labour leader Jim Murphy to sever his links with the Henry Jackson Society, which they accused of pushing an anti-Muslim agenda."

Daily Mirror yesterday,

"Labour faces a "big defeat" under Jeremy Corbyn, a former party general secretary warned tonight.
Mr Corbyn's two landslide leadership victories were "completely different" from winning a general election, Lord David Triesman said.

He told The House magazine: "I think the position for the party is genuinely very grim and I don't see any real point in trying to hide from the reality.
"Winning a majority in the party, as Jeremy did, is not anything like winning a majority in the country."

"He also hit out at the appointment of human rights campaigner Shami Chakrabarti to the Lords soon after her much-criticised report into alleged racism in Labour ranks.
"I think that many people, if they were offered a peerage in those circumstances, if there was something behind it or not, would have said not at this moment'," he said.
"I think I would have said perceptions can be very damaging to a politician, it doesn't matter if they're grounded in reality or not.
She could have relied on the fact that given her work and her reputation she would have arrived in the House of Lords eventually." "
