Chuka Umunna rules out serving in Corbyn's shadow cabinet

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Personally, I'm grateful to Chuka and the other "won't serves" for marking out what pathetic right-wing shitheads they are.
    You'd hope that your MP, who after all is supposed to represent constituent interests, would participate in something that might get his party into power (because fuck knows that continuing neoliberalism-lite hasn't worked). Nope, it's got to be on his terms, or he'll take his ball home.

    The total disconnect with reality and the complete inability to comprehend the red swarm have arrived in their hordes and annihilated them reminds me of that Austrian chap in the bunker..

    not fritzl , the other one .

    We've had Labour
    We've had New Labour.
    We need Labour the Next Generation.

    Keeping the old New Labour cronnies in cabinet ain't going to achieve that. They ain't the right sort.

    From what Corbyn has been saying re: party democracy, I think he's likely to leave it to the membership to decide.

    Why ?

    Membership of it is pretty much a contract not to have socialism . They're a shower of new labour clone bastards running the show . It's a bloody awful institution .

    Because left to our own devices the cunts we keep voting for will fuck everything up a lot quicker than if we're bound to some sort of "don't be a country full of venal arseholes" contract

    Plus, If farage wants out then I want in.

    It has been said oft times elsewhere, but I really do hope that Corbyn ditches the PLP whip and makes them vote along the lines of their own beliefs.

    The Eu is run by the biggest venal arseholes going . Basically you're arguing against democracy and people having a say over who rules them .

    And with respect that position as regards Farage just isn't logical . I'd have though the best way to obliterate him politically would be with a labour party committed to a referendum .

    Have they changed the story linked to in the OP? Because otherwise this thread makes no sense.

    I think both Labour and the Tories need to split to become viable parties. They both have a chasm within their memberships.

    Makes no sense. Just vote the way you want. Farage & UKIP are irrelevant as soon as the polls close in the EU referendum.

    Yes, that way we could finally break the mould of British politics.

    Splits have happened before, you say? :eek:

    Do you have a newsletter I can subscribe to?

    Wouldn't that require them to actually formulate their own beliefs, instead of swallowing the neoliberal line wholesale?
    Poor fuckers wouldn't know what to do, would they? :D

    I remember the first time I saw that.
    My reaction was "they look like someone has just dragged them out of a secondary school staffroom".
    Wasn't impressed by them then, and they've done very little since to prove they've any political value.

    I think I might rule myself out of Corbyn's shadow cabinet too so I can feature in all the news bulletins.

    What's the odds on him getting reselected anyway? I'd wager Harrison is thinking about returning to law and the bling lifestyle.

    Dame Tessa was doing the same as JimW was thinking of doing (ruling
    herself out of a Corbyn cabinet) - in the course of allegedly reviewing the papers on Sky News.

    If freeloader Chuka doesn't like the democratic process that brought Corbyn to leadership then he can phuka right off, form his own party with his rebel right-wingers, or join the tories
