Corbyn’s a Principled Man: But He Cares Nothing About the Future of the Labour Party

I'm not normally one to comment on the affairs or issues of political parties other than my own (the Liberal Democrats in case you didn't know), but the fallout from Thursday's referendum and its impact on the Labour Party has got me and indeed the whole nation wondering just what the hell is going on. Whilst it may be fair to comment that media outlets, in particular the BBC is lending far too much airtime to the leadership crisis as opposed to the clear incompetence and ineptitude of leave campaigners, Continue reading [...]

A Mock(ery) Election

The past few months have seen nothing but antagonistic and negative press regarding the Labour leadership contest.

It still remains unclear as to the exact involvement of the Liberal Democrats; is there a coalition between the two or will it be a minority Tory government? Either way David Cameron is expected Continue reading [...]

My take on Brown’s departure

With the announced resignation of Mr Brown this afternoon, it's playing on my mind that a Liberal Democrat/Labour coalition looks more and more likely. Talks have formally opened between the two parties which begs the question as to what's going on exactly with the Tory talks? I reckon, it was one of Clegg's conditions of forming a coalition; he didn't want to be seen as backing a failed party but with a new, refreshed, re-vitalised Labour party perhaps the Sheffield loving liberal leader will Continue reading [...]
