'The Labour Party is expected to have “one of its worst local election performances in recent history”, the prediction coming just three months after the party experienced its worst national election loss since 1935.

Locals will be voting in 118 councils in England on May 7th, and the Labour Party is expected to lose up to 315 seats including Labour strongholds like Sheffield which the party has held for 75 years, according to an internal party document seen by the BBC and reported on Tuesday.'

I wonder why?

Just a quick comment that, to me, all the current candidates for the Labour party leadership look disastrous for the party. I'm not a socialist (nor am I an unthinking conservative), but I recognise the need for balance in politics - and they are pushing Keir Starmer as a moderate!? Wake up, please, the coffee is boiling over! We need an effective and sensible...

Thank you for B.A. Khandro - a poster whom I respect.
How can the debate start within the Labour Party on the reasons for their defeat, when the biggest reason is still hanging on to the last minute, and appears to be beyond criticism at the moment.
Corbyn should have stepped down the day after the General Election, and a caretaker should have led the party on a temporary basis, the way Harriet Harman used to.
At least that's what I think.

Labour remains in the iron grip of Momentum, and until a leader that Momentum approves on - that being a carbon copy of Jeremy Corbyn - then Jeremy Corbyn stays in place, in order to make the hand-over as seamless as possible.
It all looks horrendous. I rejoined the Labour Party in order to vote for Jess Philips. She’s gone but I’m getting loads of messages from Keir, Rebecca and Lisa. I don’t like any of them. I think I’ll leave again.
That's right, keep knocking Labour, it diverts attention away from the hopeless incompetents running the country, and the smokescreen is heartily supported relentlessly by all the Billionaire Press barons who know the Tories won't interfere with their non-tax-paying status.

Shocking isn't it Canary. And them so popular and worthy of praise too.

^^ not to mention the country abandoned Labour & gave them an 80 majority in Parliament on their manifesto, which they are starting to put in to practice, where's the beef?
