    Great move, great city.

    • Daniel Speight

      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.

    Corbyn: We are fighting inequality and forcing the Tories into u-turns

    Jeremy Corbyn and his senior allies have launched a fightback after Labour failed to make a breakthrough in English local elections and suffered another meltdown in Scotland. Corbyn delivered an impassioned speech in Sheffield, where he attacked the Tories over their failure to deal with the steel crisis, condemned the running down of the NHS and challenged David Cameron to tackle tax avoidance. The Labour leader was in Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough to congratulate Gill Furniss (above), one of two new Labour […]

    Backbenchers tell Corbyn: Results are not good enough

    Labour MPs today piled pressure on Jeremy Corbyn after the party held on to key councils in England but fell back heavily on its performance in the last set of local elections. With Labour’s share of the vote down by about six per cent on its 2012 result, according to a BBC analysis, backbenchers criticised Corbyn’s performance and said the party was no closer to returning to government. The prospect of any coup attempt diminished, however, as Labour avoided a […]

    Welsh Labour has fallen just short of a majority in the Senedd, winning 29 of the 60 seats available. Welsh leader Carwyn Jones said he is now talking to opposition parties about the possibility of coalition. This would mean talking to Plaid Cymru as well as the one Welsh Lib Dem Assembly member. Jones’ party performed slightly better than expectations on a night when Labour were hit by a UKIP breakthrough. The Tories and Lib Dems were the biggest losers. Today, when […]

      This is an extract from the speech Jeremy Corbyn has just given in Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough where Gill Furniss has won the parliamentary seat. “All across England last night we were getting predictions Labour were going to lose councils.
