Looks like Agent Cob is trying to get more hard left Storm Troopers on board.

They've been at it for a while now so it wouldn't surprise me.
Agent Cob is just checking which of the current Labour MPs to invoke the new and exciting "conditions" required in the lurch towards antisemitism and pro Islamic Marxism. Lovely new levers hidden in the trigger election conditions recently adopted. If you intend to stay and your face doesn't fit, in the drive towards our ultimate goal, we will find someone willing to do as we say. Common sense moderates raving barmpots in.
It's just to make sure the party is ready for a snap election!*

Are there many left?
Just shows how he’s no idea of how to make his party more electable. Instead, he’s going the other way!
Who hears of Hilary Benn these days? He was a rising star in Labour ranks till he dared cross swords with Corbyn and his KGB.
The tail is now wagging the dog, time to remove the Marxists and return to real Labour principles instead of their clapped out ideology.
Jeremy Corbyn has hardly any education (a drop-out from the North London Polytechnic) and has never done a proper job. His first wife says, in all the time they were married she never saw him read a book. Well, he certainly read one; Das Kapital, and he would profit from reading more and of a wider range.

I'm in shock, this must be the only thread on here where Jim and ZM are agreeing with me!

sadly khandro, the infestation is now irrevocable, I am grateful for now as the Tories in disarray. A decent opposition should be scoring in the multitude of open goals. In future the country needs a credible opposition and once brexit is sorted, the Tories regroup, Labour will be mincemeat. The Lib nondems should start to pick up the moderate Labour vote as well as those VB still bitter at brexit.

The only difference being that the real paramilitary force allowed a certain someone's rise to power.

JC must never be allowed to have his hands on the tiller.
"Who hears of Hilary Benn these days? He was a rising star in Labour ranks till he dared cross swords with Corbyn and his KGB."

I guess you are alluding to Hilary's sterling promotion in the bombing of Syria and not his promotion re invading Iraq and bombing Libya ?

Seems to be a fear here that Corbyn would be the sole voter in any selection contests ?

They do love a good purge these lefties. When they've purged all the obvious people, they get bored and start looking around for other suspects. Complete 'cleansing' is never quite achieved though, so the purging and bullying is continuous.
"They do love a good purge these lefties."

What lefties are you talking about?
//What lefties are you talking about? //

Mainly the extreme ones. You know, the ones with the (imagined) monoply on moral correctness that justifies (in their own minds) the purging and bullying of the 'bad people'.
No I 'dont know' ludwig and neither do you.

I did not know 'lefty' meant 'extreme ones', interesting.

The members who are members of the Labour party are in excess of 500,000 and they will vote in any selection contests, that is why it is called The Labour Party.

I didn't say it did. You asked me which lefties I was talking about, and I said 'Mainly the extreme ones'.
Yes you did.... "They do love a good purge these lefties. When they've purged all the obvious people, they get bored and start looking around for other suspects."

Sorry, but saying 'yes you did' and then pasting something that does absolutely nothing to support that statement looks a bit silly.

500,000 is an impressive membership though. It's nearly as many people as will vote for them in a general election.
//The members who are members of the Labour party are in excess of 500,000 and they will vote in any selection contests, that is why it is called The Labour Party. //

candidates are selected by their local party organisations, not the entire party, surely? how unwieldy would that be if the entire party voted on each candidate.....

as I understand it the CLP gets to select the candidate, and many of these are very much Corbyn/Momentum supporting bodies.
ludwig, you said "They do love a good purge these lefties. When they've purged all the obvious people, they get bored and start looking around for other suspects."

By implication that brands ALL 'lefties' as 'extreme ones'.
