@maxblunt @meril_says @edwardpoole1975 @upsadaizy @JohnnyAldred @philbc3 Exactly, why when we have people sleeping on the streets is israel such a big problem- how often does corbyn talk about china, iran, russia or venzuelan human rights. This really shows his unsuitabilityGed @shudall • 26 Jan 05:49 GMT
@maxblunt @meril_says @edwardpoole1975 @upsadaizy @JohnnyAldred @philbc3 Pragmatism demonstrates nstrstes the understanding the life nor politics are perfect. It is accepting that we have to start somewhere. It gives us the ability to deal with things like homelessness as a priority and realising that is more important than renationalisationGed @shudall • 26 Jan 05:44 GMT

@ScarthLloyd @edwardpoole1975 OK. So you did no campaigning? But you're still more expert than I on voters in Mids/North constituencies during GE & you're advising me that we have to appeal more to L-D voters in these places? Which voter stats from the 52 have you looked at which leads you to this conclusion?Julia Larden @JuliaLarden • 26 Jan 01:14 GMT

@mattzarb @edwardpoole1975 @IndyPolitics The trouble is that the lie is in print, the rebuttal is in social media and temporary in nature.

@ScarthLloyd @edwardpoole1975 Er um, exactly what Mathematics are you referring to Graeme, and what conclusion are we supposed to be drawing from them? Would this Maths involve the 52 leave voting constituencies we lost by any chance? Or the fact that Lib-Dems tended to do rather worse than Labour in them?Julia Larden @JuliaLarden • 25 Jan 23:34 GMT
@gizzblue @Socialist_Chris @edwardpoole1975 @BBCNews Faux par? . You blame the BBC for Johnson running away from Andrew Neil?

@Charles68431225 @edwardpoole1975 And you think the Tory government you’ve just gifted power to will show much interest in controlling business? Much more interested in ripping up those workers rights you’ve just handed them on a plate.
When you back a Murdoch campaign you’re doing Murdoch’s bidding, not Foot’s.
@edwardpoole1975 I will vote for whoever I think will take the fight to the Tory government. I don’t think RLB will be able to get rid of the Corbyn tag with the electoratejohn hampson @hampson51 • 25 Jan 19:42 GMT
@Charles68431225 @edwardpoole1975 Bull.
And by ‘socialist wing’ you mean a particular wing which was more than happy to ally itself with a xenophobic Murdoch campaign to get us out of the EU because he and the rich wanted to avoid taxes and strip us of internationally guaranteed workers rights.
@iwaslabour @edwardpoole1975 PS Thanks for your chart, which graphically makes my point that vote share for Lab is a red herring. What counts, if anyone hadn't noticed, is seats. In 2005 we won 157 more than the Tories; in 2017, 56 fewer; in 2019, 163 fewer. Anyway, I'm on holiday & leaving it thereStewart Lewis @StewartLewis2 • 25 Jan 19:35 GMT
@iwaslabour @edwardpoole1975 2/2 The contrast between what New Lab did for ordinary people and what the Tories did before & have done since couldn't be starker. Living standards, public services & support for those in need rose dramatically. But I agree about Iraq - I opposed it too.Stewart Lewis @StewartLewis2 • 25 Jan 19:27 GMT
@edwardpoole1975 I'm willing to back starmer as long as he: 1). Is able to show how he will win back leave voting seats 2). Accepts the need for compromise with the left in both the manifesto and shadow cabinet 3). Doesn't try to change the party rules to exclude the leftSam Warman @TheYeti201 • 25 Jan 19:09 GMT
@norod911 @lsfletcher66 @Rishi_isHere @CallMeJeryka @edwardpoole1975 Okay so to point out something rather obvious.
What you're not paying in tax for medical, you're already paying for medical insurance 🤦♂️
The difference is, when you're ill, you won't be in debt or pay out high premiums for using national medical care your taxes paid for.
@Johnfrededdy @OmarBaggili @edwardpoole1975 Labour did back Remain in 2016 but Leave won and you'll never respect that vote. It was centrist Ed Miliband that lost Scotland in 2015 from 41 seats down to 1. Well done, centrists.CanDoJon @nojondo • 25 Jan 17:07 GMT
@YvonneLangley01 @edwardpoole1975 @LeftieK13 The evidence contradicts your troll comments.
Labour came within 2,200 votes of winning power in 2017 standing on an explicitly socialist programme.
Mr Corbyn won 12.9 million votes (40% vote sharee). He achieved the largest vote share increase since 1945 (+3.5m votes/+9.5%)

@ModernLeftie @Johnfrededdy @edwardpoole1975 Generals always want to fight the last war again, but we shouldn't make the same mistake. The next general election will be in 2024, not 2019, and the political landscape will be utterly different.

@PortiaLawrie @LeonPool @edwardpoole1975 @J19721 2017 saw general election called by the worst Conservative Prime Minister in history and yet still Corbyn lost. His vanity is such that he really thought he could win this time in a general election called on Boris Johnson's terms. The result says all we need to know.ceedoubleu @ceedoubleu • 25 Jan 14:00 GMT

@edwardpoole1975 Careful Ed. This sounds a bit like paranoia. No Labour leader can take the UK back into the EU without the support of the membership and the Country. That being said, 75% of Labour members voted Remain, so not unreasonable that rejoining the EU might well become Party Policy.LostAtSea 🕊️☮️🕷️⚖️🇪🇺🕯️ @LostAtS93990553 • 25 Jan 13:00 GMT

@edwardpoole1975 I thought if you joined Labour since the GE you couldn’t vote in the Leadership Election, if I’m wrong and a surge of new members have joined to keep out RLB then I would say they have been members of another party which again would make them invalid to voteWorking Class Socialist @logical4ever • 25 Jan 12:16 GMT
@edwardpoole1975 Equally so, it could just be the natural inflation of the next batch of young members joining.
Whoever they are, I doubt they have a unified position. And I very much doubt they were fans of JP, as the press are spinning it.
@maxblunt @meril_says @edwardpoole1975 @upsadaizy @JohnnyAldred @philbc3 Of course but you have to sell this to people on the fence.

@SaveTheNHS4U @SnoringRob @edwardpoole1975 @UKLabour @johnmcdonnellMP It was a wholly irresponsible act & by implication casts aspersions at previous Labour voters that voted Tory this time, the opposite of what’s needed right now in @UKLabour & the country. Lost the plot or true colours, I’m undecided.Nurse Moneywise @nursemoneywise • 25 Jan 11:27 GMT
@edwardpoole1975 You haven’t got that feeling because you know it’s utter nonsense, you’re trying to spread scare stories to benefit RLBNeil Midgley @midgley_neil • 25 Jan 11:19 GMT
@SaveTheNHS4U @SnoringRob @edwardpoole1975 Yes, although my personal stance will not change, I accept the will reflected in the election but I won’t apologise for backing a 2nd referendum just because we lost. My constituency voted 70% Liz Truss & is firm Brexit.Nurse Moneywise @nursemoneywise • 25 Jan 11:09 GMT
@MattScottMusic @Richard74579795 @edwardpoole1975 So cravenly acquiescence to the most catastrophic Tory policy of all time would have won Labour the election?
It was only Corbyn's luke-warm endorsement of PV that prevented Labour annihilation.
@edwardpoole1975 Maybe people are joining because they voted Labour & want to be part of a movement that will make life difficult for the tories & get into power next time round. One thing I am disappointed with is the constant in fighting I see on here and in this thread. Work together.Suecrag @Suecrag1 • 25 Jan 10:52 GMT
@edwardpoole1975 But surely you need a leader who is going to broaden the appeal of Labour and Keir would do that. I’d of thought a true socialist party would not win enough support as evidenced on the last two elections which Labour have lost. Happy to hear your thoughts on this.Ian Startin @startin_ian • 25 Jan 10:49 GMT
@ScarthLloyd @edwardpoole1975 I was born in 1982 so have lived under the tories apart from 13 years.

@SaveTheNHS4U @SnoringRob @edwardpoole1975 I supported a 2nd referendum because I don’t want to Brexit & I still don’t want to Brexit. I tolerated the policy on a 4 day week even though I thought it was ludicrous & showed ignorance of commerce & supply chain & the real world.Nurse Moneywise @nursemoneywise • 25 Jan 10:32 GMT
@edwardpoole1975 By the next election the UK if it survives intact will have had enough time to appreciate the sunny uplands of Brexit, so perhaps a Labour leader who's consistently argued against this Tory led shambles will do better with the electorate.Ursula Earl @EarlUrsula • 25 Jan 10:24 GMT
@edwardpoole1975 Err..why? The vast majority of Labour voters are Remainers. If Labour has to let go of one group it should be the Lexiters. Suspect many of them will return to the fold soon anyway.A Serial Luncher @Serialluncher • 25 Jan 10:11 GMT
@aardgoose @edwardpoole1975 @whynothomer @IanGunslinger @unitetheunion You know it, I know it, it was a desperate attempt, supported by centrists, to get remain back on the table. They underestimated the “knuckle draggers” who saw straight through it and THAT’S why Labour lost. Not Labour policies, not Jeremy Corbyn, Brexit.Lynn Kelly @Sparkyxxx • 25 Jan 10:03 GMT
@maxblunt @meril_says @edwardpoole1975 @upsadaizy @JohnnyAldred @philbc3 Yeah but more precisely I left because the election of Corbyn has predictably proven to be a disaster for the poor. He justified this around the time of the 2016 election by talking about the record membership and i was not happy to be part of his justification.Ged @shudall • 25 Jan 09:56 GMT
@aardgoose @edwardpoole1975 @whynothomer @IanGunslinger @unitetheunion They voted to ‘get #Brexit done’ because ‘centrists’ called them knuckle draggers and thought they wouldn’t notice the little tweak in Labour policy that meant their referendum choice would be ignored.Lynn Kelly @Sparkyxxx • 25 Jan 09:52 GMT
@edwardpoole1975 Still no Long Bailey positives. Perhaps it's the fact that you keep claiming Starmer is a remainer and LB a Brexiteer is one of the things that is drawing remainers to him. What I am sensing is a growing panic among LB supporters.Kim Arrowsmith @whoviankim • 25 Jan 09:44 GMT
