    Great move, great city.

      Crap football teams though.

      • Dave Postles

        You obviously reject Bill Shankley’s observation that there are 2 great football teams in Liverpool: Liverpool and Liverpool reserves.

    But the real question is where will we hold the karaoke!

    • AlanGiles

      Yes. That will probably be the only event that the particpants will enjoy. The rest of the time they will be too scared to say anything remotely socialist for fear of upsetting the tabloid press, Strivers, and Mr and Mrs Middle England.
      Still no word about the Hammond proposal for further welfare cuts to pay for defence from anybody at the top of Labour. They come over as weak as water.

        Could I ask the loyalist who voted this down whether or not he thinks that the public have a right to know:

        1) Does Labour agree with Hammond’s proposal

        2) Does Labour disagree with Hammond’s proposal
        or

        3) Don’t know

        If the answer is 2 why is it that Labour does’nt have the courage to say so clearly and plainly?

    I think it would be politically expedient to hold one in Scotland.

She made it clear that Labour were intent on holding the Government to account and she argued that changes […]

    Understanding the election result: we mustn’t overdramatise the facts or oversimplify the answers

    “Labour’s era may now be over and perhaps it is time for something new”, wrote one commentator in last Sunday’s Observer.  Keen to gain a hearing for their views, academics and journalists have joined some of my Labour colleagues in talking up the implications of our defeat on 7 May, just as they did in 1992. Then, as now, we were told that Labour could never form a majority government again. Just five years later we secured our biggest victory […]

    Why is attacking trade unions one of the Government’s top priorities?

    The Queen’s Speech sets the government’s agenda for the coming parliament. And today’s gave a clear sign as to what this Tory government – the first in 18 years – considers a priority: taking away workers’ right to legally go on strike. In one speech, the Government – using the Queen as their mouthpiece – went from saying they wanted to help working people to outlining how they would effectively ban the right to strike. In their Trade Unions Bills, […]
