    Tristram Hunt's answer to Labour's woes.

    Post by Angie baby on Sat 25 Jul 2015, 12:31 pm

    Labour can rise again, but it must resist Jeremy Corbyns siren calls.

    Reheated Bennism is not the answer the party has to show that it is on the side of aspirational voters.

    Well, what do you think of that Papa ?

    Here is the full story from The Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/labour/11761389/Labour-can-rise-again-but-it-must-resist-Jeremy-Corbyns-siren-calls.html

    .................................................................

    You have been calling for Labour to go back to it's roots in many places on ROB, but are you not willing to consider that Hunt has something there ?

    I will tell you what I "think of that" Angie:

    Tristram Hunt is a dyed-in-the-wool Blairite and he has always been against the lefty core of the party.

    He has no right to use the "Bennism" quote to try to frighten Corbyn's supporters away.

    The Blairites, still left in the party, who are happy with it lurching to the right to beg for votes from ex-Tory voters, always call reverting to the historic past of Labour as a "backward step" while they have forgotten that the party was originally designed to support the working people of the country and not the Toryesque middle ground.

    With a bit of luck Jeremy Corbyn will get the leadership position and will then rebuild the Labour party as it was first designed to be.

    He is still a very dangerous and influential person Zathrus.

    We are going to have to watch him closely.

    On the news yesterday it was reported that Jeremy Corbyn has another two unions backing him for the leadersip election.

    His position is now just about unassailable.

    Yes, my dear, I think it is going to come down to the number of New-Labour, ( Blairite ), supporters against the number of true Labour people who can register their votes for or against Corbyn.

    I feel that the number of people who used to support the Blair war-monger are dwindling at an eye-watering speed, and the few Blairites that are left in the annals of the Labour party are dwindling too.

    As soon as they see that Corbyn cannot lose they are going to jump ship as fast as they can because nobody wants to be connected with the losers.

    Sorry but I cannot take seriously anyone called 'Tristram' - he has never done a real job in his life and has NOTHING to contribute to the Labour movements

    That's a bit "nameist", ( as opposed to racist ), Gandhi, but I can see what you are getting at there.

    Mind you he had no say in being called Tristram by his parents.

    I just think he, ( his name set aside for a moment ), is a bit of a twit.

    Neither do I Gandhi, but you can be sure that your two pals Cameron and Osborne are certainly that.
