Join the Labour Party and save your country!

Postby Stevo 666 » Wed Jun 17, 2015 12:08 pm

What a fantastic idea :)

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/general-election-2015/politics-blog/11680016/Why-Tories-should-join-Labour-and-back-Jeremy-Corbyn.html

If this goes viral, for the measly sum of £3 each we can put Jeremy Corbyn in charge of the Labour party, consigning Labour to electoral oblivion for quite some time. Quite a few people need to register to make it work, as it says in the link:
"Could this actually work? That depends on how many Tories sign up. The size of the Labour leadership electorate is projected to be 240,000 or thereabouts, so quite large. Second preferences are redistributed and, assuming Liz Kendal’s eliminated first, followed by Yvette Cooper, I can’t see him getting many of those. To win, therefore, Corbyn would need to get close to 50 per cent of first preferences – quite a tall order, even in a party as bats**t crazy as Labour." :lol:

I'm now a registered supporter of the Labour party :mrgreen: Come on comrades, your country needs you - get registered and tell your friends...

Very funny. Would be interested to see it work out but doubt it will.

Save your money Stevo. It may be a ruse for the lefties to raise money. Even if loads of us voted for him, I'm sure we would be outvoted when Red Len rocks up and casts his votes. :lol:

Really just £3?? I think I saw something about it being from £3. Or in the style of telecoms broadband speed in reverse. They say from £3 but most have to spend £25 to become members unless one of the workshy slackjaws who normally support Labour left!!! :wink:

Could this not just generate a load of cash fro Labour. Torries joining so they can vote and then a load of labour supporters who wouldn't have normally joined sign up to stop the torries swinging the vote.

I think I preferred it when Tories had the good grace to be ashamed enough about their political views to keep quiet about them.

Has any political party ever been ashamed of their policies. Thinking about Blair's Iraq war as a prime example of policy to be ashamed of.

What, you mean you only realised because you read Ricks witty and incisive reply? :P

Not sure why he's so narked about this, unless he's finally given up on the Lib Dems and defected to Labour in an act of political desperation :wink:

I have no ambitions to stand for elected office - unlike some people :wink:

All I want to do is exercise my democratic right to help get beardy Captain Bats**t elected to lead Labour into the electoral wilderness, a bit like Michael Foot did in the early 80's. It's the least they deserve :)

You might want to think more on why Shiny Face Dave is pandering to the 50 Euronutter Tory MPs. FFS there are 280+ other Tories, what's up with them? Paralysed with indecision on whether to be rational or conform to the tax dodging newspaper owners' personal agendas?

Bompetta, being 5, is a keen Cbeebies fan, and I had a nagging feeling Corbyn looked a bit familiar:

Why? I get my vote on that as well and I'll make my own mind up :)

Five years ago I got to enjoy, no, endure a speech by Dave Nellist, who had been a Labour MP during the 80s.
These people should be encouraged to speak at every opportunity. I had never heard such vicious bile in all my life. Let the people know what they really stand for.
And some people want the Labour Party to go back to these 'traditional' values espoused in the 70s and 80s? FFS!!!
