@pfly62 @326Pols @klalaaaaaa13 I think you probably need to get away from two ideas:
1) that appealing to northern Labour members is the same as appealing to people in the north
2) that any politician can 'deliver' a region
@JamesDAustin @robjeffecology @unitetheunion What antisemitic bile have you actually seen though? If it's in retaliation to Israel and their treatment of the people of Palestine it's not antisemitism.Mr E #ForTheMany @flyingwail • 25 Jan 22:15 GMT
@forwardnotback @JamesDAustin It's a difficult one. Yes, they should've delayed and kept Johnson hanging out of Micawberism if nowt else - but still a fair chance when the election comes, fundamentals are similar - woefully unpopular Labour leader and voters annoyed at Brexit dithering win it for Johnson.Mark Worgan 🇪🇺 @worgztheowl • 25 Jan 08:22 GMT
@flyingwail @robjeffecology @unitetheunion It wasn't MPs in the main I was thinking about, though one or two have questions to answer, but more the members who have poisoned the party with antisemitic bile over the past 4 years.
Lot of work to be done.
They've literally used a 1999 PowerPoint slide for this.

@JamesDAustin @education_rob Also most of these 100,000 who’ve joined since the election won’t be able to vote in the CLP nominations due to the 8 week rule, so it’s the members from 2019 and before who are voting which should worry her even more[AJ]🏳️ @YorkshireLad_87 • 24 Jan 17:09 GMT
@JamesDAustin Fair call there. Though does it matter in a member vote off? Assuming RLB can get on the ballotRobert Harries @education_rob • 24 Jan 16:54 GMT
@kayes67 @KatFletcher @iMattPound Matt and Luke built an amazing machine with Lab First that somehow remained competative in internal matters (aside from the big national elections) despite being massively outgunned financially/members wise.James Austin @JamesDAustin • 23 Jan 22:24 GMT
@Michael_Dunn4 Admission would require treaty change. I'd guess they'd demand we join the Euro/Schengen and probably have some sort of mechanism to block us leaving for 20+ years.James Austin @JamesDAustin • 23 Jan 15:47 GMT
