    Conned by two rent-boys, and now probed by the Metropolitan Police's finest.

    I reckon old Keith has maybe had better weeks.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    — Joe Strummer

    Obvious really. Unfortunately the media have such power because most take everything as read although it is pleasing how trust in mainstream (and particularly) right wing media is waning and much more up for scrutiny.

    Brave Sir Dave, he ran away
    Bravely ran away away
    When danger reared its ugly head
    He bravely turned his tail and fled
    Yes brave Sir Dave, he turned about
    And gallantly he chickened out
    Bravely taking to his feet
    He beat a very brave retreat
    Bravest of the brave, Sir Dave!

    Cameron is a coward. He doesn't want to be sitting in the Commons chamber while the Bill to leave the EU is debated for the next two years and be laughed at because it is all down to his personal misjudgment and failure to deliver a vote that he called.

    Typical of the Poundland Flashman - he can dish it out to Corbyn but he's too arrogant and self entitled to take it.

    After recent political controversies about standing room on trains, I can't help but notice there are a lot of empty seats here:

    Where was the Corbynistas? We might expect Blairites and others from the center not to be arsed, but the comrades from the left?

    This was the same with Caroline Lucas' NHS Reinstatement Bill, no one from Labour turned up for the debate then either.

    EXACT SAME BENEFITS

    Just for a little background, the debate was on Southern Rail's franchise.

    Presumably Jeremy didn't think it was worth sending anyone because he's going to strip all the companies of their franchises in four years' time.

    The funniest one is Tristram hunt having a go at the boundary changes. Labour were against the AV electoral system because they benefit the most from first past the post and there is a bill to equal out the imbalances of the current boundaries they kick up a fuss. Don't get me wrong first past the post is bad but for labour to complain is the funniest thing ever.

    There's no point in Labour whining about boundary changes until they are actually electable under a fair constituency set up. As it stands they failed spectacularly when the odds were skewed in their favour in 2010 and 2015 and under Corbyn look set to do worse next time.

    Finally, as EmmersonForest4 so rightly says, Labour have hardly banged on about changing a system that disadvantages others regardless of individual boundaries, namely FPTP.

    Having to fend off a leadership challenge from within their own party. Also do Labour even have any MP's on the route? But it must be Corbyn's fault.

    It would be a surprise if Corbyn had a leadership challenge from another party.

    And what kind of socialism is only concerned with "my back yard"?

    Some people have been disenfranchised by the NEC for showing support to the Green Party.....maybe fear of the purge spread to the MPs as well..

    Ok pedantic!! Until September Corbyn is preoccupied fending off attacks from within so hasn't the time to fend of the government too. I'm sure he will be back there attacking the government when allowed to just as he was before.
