One of Corbyn's "millstones," apart from the mass media, was the determined and constant briefing against him by members of his own party. All those people who refused to serve in his shadow cabinet and who rarely missed a chance to berate him publicly. They did the Tories' job for them. It was unforgivable that the senior members of the party wouldn't at least publicly get behind the properly-elected party leader. It was transparently obvious what they were doing. I suppose that it'll be one of them who succeeds Starmer (the sooner the better). He was fence-sitter-in-chief with regard to Corbyn and the party's disastrous brexit shenanigans, but just look at how he's treated Corbyn and other good leftie people such as Becky Long-Bailey and Ken Livingstone since. Not a man of principle in m'humble, in spite of his posturing as such. He's all misplaced expediency and no substance. And I'm still a member!

I see that Blair has waded in with more right leaning comments.

From an article in the Guardian about a Blair foundation report -

"They thought Labour’s far-left economic policy was a bigger threat than Brexit.”

Without what he calls the “millstone” of Starmer’s predecessor, Jeremy Corbyn, Blair claims Labour can win many of these voters back


I think it just shows how far right politics has become. When did supporting the NHS, free education, nationalising utilities and helping the vulnerable become far left economic policies? Nye Bevan must be spinning in his grave.

I suspect you are right, Steve, that anything other than a complete exoneration will lead to Starmer standing down. But a tactical measure I think leaving this uncertain will tempt the unwary Tory MPs to try to make him commit, which actually just makes Johnson's position look weaker. It has a cost of the media asking incessantly, but maybe they reckon the is a price worth paying to have the less attentive MPs calling for him to quit. Some are attempting the awkward balancing act saying no one should resign over the fines but if Starmer wishes to it is up to him.

The police response will be crucial. "There is insufficient evidence..." = fatal for Starmer. A bollocking but not a fine, he's belly-up. Unless they actually say that the accusation is vexatious, it will never go away. The gathering, held against an uncurtained downstairs window in the house of an MP late in the evening, for all to see, was an act of supreme idiocy. The Tories, the Mail and the Express must be rubbing their hands with glee.

Let's review my predictions.

The first I got wrong. In my ward, the Conservative Jaden Beaurain did not win; he was 300 votes behind the Labour candidate. The LibDem took a significant portion of the vote, but the other two left-of-centre parties did not.

My second prediction was that the Tories would say this was bad, but not as bad as the predicted and this has been quite widespread. I haven't yet seen a commentator think Labour performed better than moderately well.

My third prediction - about the numbers of letters - will need more time to see if it was right, but I still think so.

In my ward, the Conservative Jaden Beaurain will win (What other party could be be?)
This is because there are four left of centre candidates against him? the the vote will be spilt so badly he gets through.

More generally? The Conservatives will lose seats and control of some councils, but will be able to claim "It is not as bad as we feared."

There will not be enough letters for a contest until more fines or Gray's report turns up, and maybe not then.

From The Guardian.

Jacob Rees-Mogg has given the game away

"But put all that aside for a moment and grasp the full meaning of Rees-Mogg’s admission. He and his fellow Brexiters once looked forward to these border checks, seeing them not merely as a price worth paying for leaving the EU but as a genuine benefit. Britain would at last be free to set its own food standards, superior to the EU’s. And yet now the minister admits that putting up barriers just makes food more expensive for British consumers and risks bankrupting British farmers: precisely the act of self-harm remainers always said it would be. The irony of hearing Rees-Mogg declare that “free trade is hugely advantageous to consumers” after he and his comrades pulled us out of the largest, most successful free trade bloc in the world – the European single market – would be funny if it weren’t so bitter."

No, there is no contradiction, Nigel. All you have to do is recognise no system is perfect and like the horse meat scandal, there will always be people who want to beat the system if their might be a profit to be made.

(That was a success for the EU, by the way. As I say, there will always be cheats. But they were detected, then traced back to source and the offenders stopped. In the real world, that is successful crime detection.)

The UK government is set to announce a fourth delay to physical checks on fresh food imported from the EU amid industry reports that neither technology nor infrastructure resources were ready for the July start of the next phase of Brexit.

Of course, if you can trust the EU to be keeping its people safe, and many here seem to think the EU is a marvellous institution (and the sun shines out of . . .), then there is no risk in allowing imports from the EU.

Of course, EU supporters will wish to have it both ways.
1) The EU have much better systems than the UK
2) The UK have to protect themselves from imports from the EU.

It can't be both. Which do you prefer?

Take back control but, err, not just yet (again).

From The Guardian

Rees-Mogg set to delay post-Brexit fresh food checks for fourth time

"The UK government is set to announce a fourth delay to physical checks on fresh food imported from the EU amid industry reports that neither technology nor infrastructure resources were ready for the July start of the next phase of Brexit.

The Brexit opportunities minister, Jacob Rees-Mogg, is expected to frame the move as use of the UK’s newfound independent powers to control the trade border since the departure from the EU and the single market."

And

"Sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) checks have been operational in all EU countries with which the UK shares a border, including France, Belgium and Ireland, since the Brexit withdrawal agreement was implemented on 1 January 2021.

The cliff-edge approach left exporters of fish and other fresh food in chaos with a lack of customs agents and veterinary staff to certify whether the produce complied with EU standards. But in the UK post-Brexit checks on fresh food were not implemented for imports, being pushed back in 2020 and on two occasions in 2021.

Under the current border plan, physical checks on meat were due to start on 1 July and on dairy on 1 September, with all remaining foods including fish and composite foods to be subject to checks from 1 November."

Yes Nigel, the manifesto is still important. It was drawn up by the Labour Party, not by Jeremy Corbyn. There will be a new one for the next election but until then it is all we have to work on.

As they are in a minority opposition any suggestions they do make are purely academic at the moment. The full 2019 manifesto is still available.
