You should check your facts, BRI. I’ve said on numerous occasions that there are racists in the Conservative party and everything needs to be done to get rid of them, though many are literally dying off as they do tend to be the older ones. That doesn’t mean more shouldn’t be done to tackle racism in the party. However, the Tories do have a mix of race and religion far broader than Labour in senior positions, which does send out a very strong signal.
As for “misunderstanding the Corbyn support here”, what a joke. I don’t recall many people on here having a big problem with him less than 12 months ago in an election that was going to put a true socialist in power. Gurnelista’s “the Tories are finished” makes a great epitaph for the left of the Labour party he supports, which once again was rejected by the British public with a complete humiliation at the polls. Of course the likes of him and Fans come out with the same old nonsense about the media, etc, etc, but Starmer isn’t so stupid.
It doesn’t need Einstein to see what’s happening on this board. It isn’t a message board but a moaning board. Of course all the moaning is about the Tories, which would be fine if there were at least some recognition of Labour’s own weaknesses. Ironically I agree with rather more of the comments on here than you might think, because I recognise the Conservatives are far from perfect; and this government has been pretty useless. The point is that I don’t need to come on here to know that.
But this isn’t going to change unless and until Labour gets its own act together, which will never happen while the likes of people on here do nothing but complain about everyone else at the same time as patting themselves on the back with pathetic virtue signalling. As for “Labour values”, what a load of tosh. Anyone who thinks the Conservative party’s made up of greedy right wingers only in it for themselves while Labour supporters are on the side of the angels is only kidding themselves.
