The whole thing is toxic.

Perhaps. But it also might be just what Starmer needs. Essentially the outcome of this defines Labours future because there simply cannot be even a pretence of unity from now on between the Momentum types and the Centre/Blairite types.

One of those parts of the Labour Party has to be pushed to one side in a meaningful way. Starmer has to decide which way he goes. Now I doubt the mans political intelligence/nous but I now stand to be proved wrong.

The battle was coming but it is clear that this report will be the ground over which it will be decided.

Possibly getting legal teams to look at it before they report it?

It shows the essential problem with Corbyn and his supporters.

- If he hadn't have been leader, remain would have probably won the referendum.
- If he'd have stood down after the referendum, May wouldn't have called the 2017 GE.
- I still can't believe that JC and Momentum celebrated the 2017 election as a win. They were stood against a dreadful Tory government with dreadful policies and still not trusted. Not standing down effectively crippled UK politics for the next two years.
- If he was gone before Boris then the Tories would have been well and truely buggered. Minority governments don't win GE's.... but Labour managed to lose it by an landslide.

It was just impossible to move him, you'd just get shouted down by his idiotic supporters.

I'm so glad they've moved these deluded people from oposition. Labour's worst result since Hitler, Franco, Mussolini, and Starlin were European leaders.


In 2017, Labour were 2200 votes short of winning a higher number of seats than the Tories.

These leaks show that millions of campaign funds - raised by members - was siphoned off to protect Mps to the right of the party, rather than distributing it in target seats.

I have no issue with you believing Labour would've been better off with another leader, and 2019 was a disaster. But, had even a neutral HQ been in operation under Corbyn's rule, he would've been PM in 2017.

Well that was a lucky escape.

I'm not really sure how 2,200 votes could have made a difference. Labour gained around 30 seats overall with 20 coming from the Tories.

The Tories, whith May, bedroom tax, brexit, tuition fees, austerity, return of fox hunting, care plans. Plus people were pissed of with them for trying to call another election in the first place. Any decent oposition would have taken May to the cleaners for being so arrogant. Blair would have won a landslide.

It was really a choice between a giant douche and a turd sandwich.

He effectively won 4 more seats than Gordon Brown after the financial crisis. He was pretty much down to the core labour support, who then abandoned him in 2019 when the Tories produced a half decent candidate.

The middle ground hate Corbyn.

So does everybody else, well 99.99%. Hopefully Starmer(if he survives), will give BoJo a run for his money & Britain can have a 'proper' election battle that even the BBC will enjoy.

I'm not really here to get into another argument about Corbyn as his time has come and gone. But it's worth remembering that in 2017, he didn't only win core Labour voters: he won 40% of the electorate, more than Blair did in 2005.

But 2019 was a disaster and those of us on the left have a lot to learn from it.

Blair won a landslide though (3 landslides).

Corbyn lost two general elections.
He stood for remain in the referendum and lost that too.

This is exactly the issue Labour have had with Corbyn supporters.... it took being 3 defeat and a complete embarresment before they would even contemplate that he might be a dreadful leader.

That is a little disingenious. There were 7 Tory seats with thin victory margins that could have swung Labours way but only if those votes could be distributed specifically. And everything is full of 'what ifs'.

Now that is a bloody good point and if I was a Corbyn supporter in the Labour Party I would be fuming about that. One of the most shocking acts of betrayal I can recollect in British politics in the modern era. Absolutely despicable.

Nah. Labour would still not have been able to form a Government. A coalition with the SNP might have offered a short term stay in Number 10 but at the cost of a second referendum and utter melt-down in England. Tempting yes but mid to long term? Disastrous.

Labour is there to protect the jobs.... that includes the jobs of their own MPs.

There's two ways of looking at this.

Had they not siphoned off that money they may have ended up getting hammered in their strongholds as well.... just like what happened last year.

This is a desperately sad post.

People like you just can't smell the coffee. There has only been one Labour Government since the seventies and that was New Labour, 'New' meaning not militant lefty dinosaurs. They won by being Tory lite.

When will people like you understand that Britain will not vote for Micky Mouse Communism any more than it will vote for pretend Fascists?

Exactly!!!

Labour's first mission is to become a government. So it begs the question even more: why were there so many actively working to prevent this from happening?
