    They're certainly acceptable to Blair, Campbell, and Mandelson.

    The prevailing mood seems to be that 'they're all the same' and a general apathy to the quality of politicians from all parties. If one party can successfully demonstrate that isn't true it'll be pretty relevant to the next election.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    I have been very impressed with Reyners performances over the past couple of months, although i know she is far from perfect. She is a very good orator and seems to speak with some pretty good grounding in relation to the economical disparity on show in parts of England, has held the Tory front bench over hot coals when in the 'leader' role and she utterly wiped the floor with Alexander de Pfeffle Johnson on a couple of occasions to boot.

    It does beg the question: as Starmer, although analytical, is pretty shit at PMQ's and holding the tories to account in the house, why was he elected and not Reyner? She seems so much better at the job than Starmer and would really resonate with a significant number of plebs.
    Shitting up eve for .... well, longer than most of you scumbags.

    Because she didn't stand for the leadership. There are separate elections for leader and deputy.

    Rebecca Long-Bailey was the nearest equivalent to Rayner who stood for the leadership.

    Rayner is a good orator and excellent at firing up the "hang the tories from the streetlights" far left segment labour base.

    But she has also demonstrated she is happy to very publicly try to undermine the elected leader of her party over and over again over basically non-stories (like this reshuffle).

    She is pretty nakedly and obviously going to try to unseat Keir. This is good for Rayner, and its probably good for lots of you anti capitalists, but its guaranteeing Labour more years/decades in opposition.

    Apologies, it was a bit of a rhetorical rant. I knew Reyner didn't stand.

    Baring in mind, she IS proving to be a better leader than Starmer atm and would have resonated exceedingly well with the labour party members at the time, Starmer appears to be a pretty poor choice. Also iirc Starmer has already attempted to give Reyner the boot due to 'differences' on multiple occasions (and i would hazard a guess that he can see her being able to defeat him handily if another party vote was held today) as well as run his own purge within Labour. Atm it looks like we are running up to Blair Mk2, not because Starmer is good, just the current crop of Tories are utter piles of corrupt, moronic, selfserving dickbags.

    Yes, because obviously when she scheduled yesterday's speech ages ago she did it especially to distract from the reshuffle she knew nothing about.

    She had her people anonymously brief the press that the shuffle was done without her knowledge (a lie they later walked back to 'she knew it was happening but not when' which is probably also a lie)

    So you mean she's doing exactly what Tom Watson spent his entire time in the Deputy Leader's position trying to do? But this time it's Bad, Actually?

    Mandelson was deeply involved in Ed Miliband's 2015 election. You know, the one where Labour got 29% of the vote that everyone's forgotten about while they go on and on about the worst result in a century where the Labour Party only got *checks notes* 32% of the vote.

    It's only infighting when the left instigate it.

    Tories hold by-election but majority from 19k to 4.5k is quite a swing for a stronghold seat.
