"The presence of a word in the dictionary (Collins or any other) does not confer respectability on it."
You obviously intend to continure making this an issue rather than addressing its implcationbs and the point of the practivce iself - shame on you Nigel

"I grew up in inner city Manchester during the 1980s. The winter of discontent had turned into the decade of disgruntlement. Thatcher had declared that there was no such thing as society and no one understood that more than those who were on the margins. Paki-bashing was almost a national pastime."
The Independent

"In both the United Kingdom and Canada, the term "Paki" is commonly associated with "Paki-bashing", violent attacks against people of South Asian origin. "Paki-bashing" began in the late 1960s and was frequent during the 1970s–1980s, with the attackers often being supporters of far-right fascist, racist and anti-immigrant movements. By 1985, there were annually more than 20,000 racist attacks on British people of colour, including Britons of South Asian origin.
Wiki (15 uses of the term)

""In the Seventies we used to help protect the Asians from what was called Paki-bashing by white skinheads. Now their children are the ones doing the bashing and they are targeting our children, young blacks. It's madness.""
Daily Telegraph

"The widespread use of the word "Paki" dated from the late 1960s and early 1970s when incidents of "Paki bashing" took place with the result that the term had become associated with violence towards a race."
Telegraph again
BBC

"paki bashing
A pass time once common in U.K. and Canadian cities where drunken white youths would lay the boots to an unsuspecting Pakistani refugee.
Let's have a few beer and go paki bashing, eh?"
Urban Dictionary

From Article 'STRIKING BACK AGAINST RACis VIOLENCE IN THE EAST END
" In recovering this lost episode of resistance to ‘Paki-bashing’, unleashed in the aftermath of Enoch Powell’s inflammatory speeches,"
and
"Keywords: autonomous self-organisation, Enoch Powell 1968, integration, Paki-bashing, Pakistani organisations, Peter Shore MP, policing, racist violence and harassment, self-defence, Tosir Ali, Tower Hamlets"

English: Paki-bashing
Paki-bashing in British

British offensive, slang
the activity of making vicious and unprovoked physical assaults upon Pakistani immigrants or people of Pakistani descent
Collins English Dictionary.

"For Khan-Din's family, and those like them, Britain in the early 70s was often unwelcoming; it was a time of tin baths and "Paki-bashing"."

Anyway back to the thread. How can the center ground be reclaimed by Labour when Jeremy Corbyn is seeking to make it harder for Labour MPs to be automatically reselected between elections? Labour sources said that his office was considering “taking back control” of the debate over reselection at the Labour conference next week. The plan would, in effect, boost the power of local Momentum groups to move against sitting MPs who did not back the party’s leader.
   If the party is not split already this latest wheeze will certainly add to the chaos,if it gets the go ahead.

Because Blair hi-jacked Labourt, abandoned its principles and made it a pale shadow of the Tories
Old labour provided a balance in British politics - that balance no longer exists
The party is only "split" because the majority of its membership are challing the old guard and demanding a return to purpose rather than career politics
Compared to the Tories, labour is presenting a "monolithic united front"
The only way the present Government can carry a vote is to bribe unsavoury otside parties unsing British taxes

Well we'll have to see what the conference (not Corbyn) decides, won't we? Just a couple of things. First, what has happened in several constituencies so far is that there have been votes of no confidence in sitting MPs. The votes have no constitutional force, can't make the MPs stand down and are NOTHING to do with deselection. They are warning shots from frustrated constituents across the bows of MPs who insist on briefing against and undermining an extremely popular leader of the party, arguably threatening the chance of Labour winning the next election. Nothing sinister, eminently sensible and thoroughly democratic. Second, "local Momentum groups" (nice smear) consist of individual members who have no more voting power than any other members in constituency matters. Cabals within parties getting themselves organised is no sin. If it were, the Tories to a man would all be rotting in hell in by now.

From Super-Tory Murdoch's Times today
Tory Eurosceptics divided after report warns of chaos
Oliver Wright Policy Editor
A no-deal Brexit would be “chaotic and damaging” for the economy and must be avoided, a cross-party committee of MPs has concluded.
In a report backed by at least one prominent Tory proponent of Brexit, the MPs called for the government to prioritise its efforts on agreeing a withdrawal agreement with Brussels.
It said that should Britain leave the EU without a negotiated settlement there would be “significant consequences”. “This would be chaotic and damaging for the UK economy and would leave many businesses facing huge uncertainty,” it said.
The Brexit select committee report’s conclusions were backed by the former culture secretary, John Whittingdale, who campaigned for Brexit and opposes the Chequers deal. In a move that will be noted in Downing Street he broke ranks with other Brexiteers on the committee, including Jacob Rees-Mogg, who voted against the report’s conclusions, and agreed to go along with the majority view. He said that his decision did not represent a change in approach but that he agreed with the broad thrust of the analysis. “The basic conclusions of the report I don’t disagree with,” he said. “A deal is better than no deal. I am not somebody who thinks that no-deal is problem free.” Mr Rees-Mogg used a BBC Panorama programme on Brexit last night to warn Mrs May not to hand parliament an ultimatum to back her deal or crash out of the bloc. Referencing the 1971 Clint Eastwood film he said: “This is the sort of Dirty Harry option isn’t it, it’s ‘come on punk make my day, how many shots have been fired?’ If you make the wrong choice the consequences can be unpleasant.”
The chairman of the Exiting the European Union committee, the Labour MP Hilary Benn, said that time was running out to agree a withdrawal agreement and solve the issue of the Northern Ireland border.

Once again, this idea that Brexit was "pushed through by a minority of the population".

But. Nigel, it's a fact, whichever way you look at it. In roundish numbers, 17.5 million voted for Brexit. The population is 66.5 million. Where's me calculator now...

Yep, that's about 26.3% of the population who voted for brexit. Of course, that's not fair because you can't vote if you're under 18 (the group that's going to be far more adversely affected by brexit than anyone else, but hey).

So let's do it as a proportion of those who WERE allowed to vote. That's 46.5 million, so lessee, what's 17.5 million out of 46.5 million?

Well that's 37.6%, Nigel. So only 37.6% of those eligible to vote are indeed responsible for pushing brexit through. That's a minority, Nigel. It's not much more than a third of the electorate and not much more than a quarter of the total population (not all of whom could vote but all of whom, ESPECIALLY those who couldn't vote, will be adversely affected).

So, Nigel, it's not an "idea." It's a fact.

Next point up for debate: "The people have spoken...". :-)

Steve, you're again trying to force the figures to say what you want them to say.
Of those who were entitled to vote, and chose to exercise that entitlement, the vote favoured Leave by 52:48
Of the total electorate if only 37.6% voted Leave, then only approx. 34.7% voted Remain. Again a majority in favour in the ratio 52:48
If you recalculate the figures giving those who voted Leave as a percentage of the total population you will still find that the percentage is greater than those who voted Remain, and still in the ratio of 52:48

As for the idea that those not entitled to vote being "adversely affected", that is your opinion. Those who voted Leave (for the most part) did so because we believe it is best for the future of the country, and that (after some initial costs) we will all benefit.

And I love the quote: No-one believes that we can't reverse Article 50, not even the bloke who drafted it.

Here's another, I wonder whether you'll recognise it:
"Once buttons have been pushed," Keith. The button is Article 50. No going back once that has been kick-started, despite what Teribus sez. Irrevocable. As far as I can see from here, that is a rock-solid cert. This is not about not doing it. It's about doing it properly. Rule of law, Keith. In fact, to all intents and purposes, the "decision of the people" (all 37% of them) was always intended to be irrevocable.

That was posted well before the good lord who drafted Article 50 told us that it wasn't, after all, irrevocable. And it was posted well before the EU made gentle noises to the same effect. The whole country was told that Article 50 was the point of no return. It was yet another brexiteer lie, intended to close the door on the debate once and for all. You believed it then, I believed it then. I now know what's true about Article 50, Nigel. Come and join us.

So now back to your statement, Nigel. Once again, this idea that Brexit was "pushed through by a minority of the population". You see, you wish to relegate it to being just "an idea" (anyone remember that other Tory trick of relegating the election promise to get immigration down to the tens of thousands to being just "an aspiration?"). The statement "brexit was pushed through by a minority of the population" is not "an idea" at all. It's rock-solid true. You have the numbers. You're a stickler for precision with words, Nigel, so you purport. So let me just nitpick YOU. "Population" is not the same thing as "electorate." Only, this isn't quite as irrelevant as some of YOUR nitpicking, is it? After all, you brexiteers, when you spoke for the nation, forgot that you were speaking for millions of young people who will be suffering the effects of your "speaking," long after you'll be pushing up the daisies. And, tragically, they didn't get a say. They were only allowed to be in the population, not in the electorate. I'd say that isn't a nitpicking difference meself.

If talking about a polling result the majority wins. Those that are not enfranchised, could not crawl out of bed, or otherwise abstained, not surprisingly do not count.
Perhaps the Shaw would like to extend the vote to a foetus, or sperm and eggs, or maybe even parrots that can talk. A total nonsense of course, just like trying to include those that did not vote. The loony left is not so called frivolous reasons!

Snippet from the link you posted

A number of Corbyn’s top team are probably going to need more than half a page to give full details on that one…

Pure personal prejudice. Nothing factual at all. Cannot be verified by anyone.

Easy. Next...

No, on second thoughts. don't bother. Your silly little games are as boring as keefy's. Time for you to be consigned to the same place as him.

AS Guido said on the link in question:
BI>Another top Corbyn adviser, Andrew Murray, has reportedly been working in the Labour Leader’s Commons office for eight months without the required security clearance. His application has been pending for over a year..

Andrew Murray was a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain until he joined Labour two years ago.

A quick glance at the parliamentary pass application form might explain why so many of Corbyn’s team have been having trouble. Question 30 asks if applicants have ever been associated with people or groups who have “intended to overthrow or undermine Parliamentary democracy by political, industrial, or violent means?” A number of Corbyn’s top team are probably going to need more than half a page to give full details on that one…


For your delectation and our delight read about Corbyn's Shadow Chancellor calling for inserrection on the streets. Now do you accept it would probably take a long time for someone such as John Mcdonald to answer question 30. Below you can hear it from the traitors mouth.
Insurrection

FACTS dear boy, FACTS!

There is little point continuing this as you can't see the diference between fact and fiction. Care to veryfy what number of Corbyn's top team have been denied security clearance because they been associated with people or groups who have “intended to overthrow or undermine Parliamentary democracy by political, industrial, or violent means?"

Must try harder. Or then again, nah. I couldn't be arsed giving you any further proof of your pin-up's blatant right wing bias.

If you wish to argue about the validity of facts then choosing as an example a phrase that contains probably merely betrays not only your ignorance of what constitutes a fact but also a woeful deficiency in your understanding of plain english.
The use of the word probably indicates a possible outcome, a surmise, or conjecture. Only the challenged would suppose the outcome is incontrovertible fact.
Trying to explain the obvious to you is really not worth my further time or effort.

What a bizarre question. Does he print facts that can be verified? yes. The four hacks are voicing opinion and possible outcomes.
...

So it is OK for Staines to use possibilities, surmise and conjecture yet when others do it their work is questionable. I think that underlines your infatuation with the man. You need to get yourself a more wholesome hobby.

My work is done.

He's in love with Staines because every utterance from that nasty POS serves to reinforce his own extreme-right, bigoted views.

Like the Clown of Hertford, he's best ignored.

He's attemptint to divert the attention away from the fact that neither of these .....whatever have any intention of responding to the points in hand
He has no argument - neither of them have attempted to offer one, so he veers to the merits of his favourite version of Dr Goebbels

"Like the Clown of Hertford, he's best ignored."
He has his uses - the shape of things to come if Britain continues to swing further to the right
As Angela Davis nearly said, "If he comes for us in the morning, who knows who he'll come for in the afternoon if he gets a big enough gang bahind him" (they always run in packs)

Pause for torrent of infantile abuse

"I'm right here Dave."
Right as they come

MORE SHAPES OF THINGS TO COME

If there's one thing for certain about the Clown of Hertford, it's that he's not 'right there' - in the head at least.

Your words, not mine! Your erroneous conclusions, not mine!

I believe the discussion was about your obvious confusion between a known outcome(fact) and a possible/probable outcome(surmise and conjecture)

You apparently are still none the wiser, hence your verbal gymnastics, and abusive response. Typical leftie approach, cannot argue out of a paper bag so lets resort to name calling and insults.
