?

Will we have a brexit?

  1. Yes - A fully independant Britain making its own way in the world (apart from scotland).

    18.1%
  2. A Semi-Detached Norway type deal

    32.9%
  3. No - 2nd referendum and/or face saving fudge to let us slink back in feeling a bit fucking stupid

    48.9%

    In fairness, the Labour leadership is unlikely to be forced into anything by a pamphlet.

    The idea reminds me of Spitting Image, when they had Tebbit in a tank.

    What a fucking demented thing to say, not least because of 'economic and financial' which is a bit like saying, this is gonna cost you and also you'll pay for it. With money.

    Redwood has always given me the fear tbh. Got a serious 'demon headmaster' vibe going on.

    I've never seen Redwood, Straw or the Demon Head Master in the same room together... :hmm:

    given the quality of the people involved and the concious aping of Macron, it is an achievement that they haven't called this new party Market tbh

    Rip-off merchants. I've been saying for years that Britain should be the innovation superpower to revolutionise opportunity.

    They also say they want to build social housing and increase taxes.

    What they actually say is they will build houses and "make sure that many of these homes are ring fenced for social housing and for key workers in health, teaching and the emergency services".

    "More can be done to implement existing EU rules such as repatriation of those who have not found work in a reasonable time frame."

    "James Torrance is an accountant and London Business School MBA. He has worked in India, China and Northern Ireland and was a world champion in 2014 in competitive debating. He was the Kensington stop Brexit independent candidate in the last general election and his vote count was enough to ensure the Kensington Brexiter Conservative MP Victoria Borwick lost."

    This is inspiring stuff!

    Nothing to do with Corbyn or Labour then? All down to the plucky James Torrance...

    ... and his 393 votes. However it is good news for John Lloyd (Alliance for Green Socialism, 49 votes) and Peter Marshall (Independent, 98 votes) who also kicked out Borwick.

    Are you saying that there is a way of interpreting this as meaning they do not want to build social housing?

    Their rhetoric suggests that for them it would suffice to build lots of houses, some of which would be 'affordable' (sold at 80% of market value) or available on a part-buy scheme to certain workers. It certainly doesn't suggest that genuinely affordable houses available to rent would be built in large numbers.

    What does it suggest to you?

    So when you wrote "what it actually says is..." what you meant was "what their rhetoric suggests to me is..."
