    New Labour Leader

    Labour is in the grip of its momentum membership. Starmer will be faced with internal infighting that will dog him for the next five years. They will set traps for him like commiting to trans rights or something unimportant. He will have no time to fight the government.

    He alerted the enemy that his ship was not in a state of readiness. This was a disgraceful dereliction of duty and getting rid of him was the right thing to do.

    It has a lot to do with it. Labour party, the so-called champions on diversity and minorities, when it came to the crunch, rejected all its non-white candidates, all its minority candidates, and once again all its women candidates. And who did it choose? A middle-aged, middle-class, rich, white man. And if you're telling me he was the most competent for the job then I offer you Labour's Brexit strategy as the project for which he is well known. Someone who has as much in common with the residents of Blyth Valley as his predecessor. Now compare that to the Conservatives who already have had two women leaders and two women prime minister's, one of whom was hopeless I will grant you, but a front bench of diversity, immigrant families and aspiration, as you would expect from a party that is open to anyone from any walk of life.

    So you are saying that foreigners who enter the country having never contributed to the welfare state should receive free benefits. That is ridiculous and totally against the original ethos of the welfare state that everybody contributes their fair share.

    Congratulations to multi-millionaire, knight of the realm for being elected as head of the working people's party. Your creation of Labour's Brexit strategy was a wondrous thing to behold and we look forward to similar foobars in the coming years. Ps. Watch out for Momentum.

    So you are saying that 'unskilled' is a social construct. Merely by saying something is not unskilled it ceases to be unskilled.

    Watched the Great Hack and wished I hadn't. Basically the story was about a mentally unstable woman who got used by some journalists with an agenda.

    You actually said 'cynically spent' which is not the same as an ad being cynical. But anyway thanks for the tip about the Great Hack. I'm going to watch it right now based on your recommendation. Cheers.

    NCFC to furlough staff

    It is a time for responsible capitalism everywhere and not just in football. Leaders of businesses need to forgo bonuses for the time being, high earners should cap salaries. Even if it doesn't make that much difference in a financial sense we need to see a show of solidarity from those in the public eye, otherwise this could lead to instability and discontent throughout society and then we would be in big trouble. It needs sacrifice of from those who have it good when times are good. It's the right and moral thing to do when many are faced with hardship and economic meltdown. I'm really surprised at our club given the religious and socialist credentials of our owners that they haven't realised the importance of moral leadership at this time.

    Well I was referring to your original post, mate, where you said: The Tories spent something like £5m on propaganda compared to Labours £200K!     How else do you think they were able to mask all their lies! So it looked to me that you were making a point about how much a party has in their coffers on the basis that you have to have the money before you can spend it. Though that is a pretty novel idea for the Labour party, I'll admit. But why do you say it is money 'cynically spent'? I don't get that. Adverts on social media is common. In fact, that's how social media platforms are able to provide free services, through the online advertising. So any political party putting out promotional material on social media is no different from stuffing abflyer through your letter box. Nothing cynical about that. I agree there is an issue in harvesting account data from sources where users believed their data was confidential but that's another topic altogether.
