Despite all the sadness and horror, I'm going to remain a member. I'm taking a leaf out of Corbyn's book and I'm going to fight from within to save the Labour Party. We only have one chance left to get our Party back and I urge as many of you left-wing moderates out there as possible to join me, become members of the Labour Party, and do the same.
I desperately want to believe that a unified Labour Party is possible, so I'll refrain from cutting up my membership card for the moment, but if the current conditions continue, I and perhaps many others may find ourselves reconsidering our positions within the party.
As a Labour member it pains me to say, that if you are disheartened about the UK exiting EU, the best thing you can do now is join the Liberal Democrats. They are the only party that alongside the Scottish National Party (SNP), offers a true coherent positive European vision and agenda
While Labour might have lost this election, it is unlikely to have suffered as many losses as it is likely to suffer in the wake of a party split.
Post-referendum, everyone upset about the result is talking about leadership. How could David Cameron have risked so much just to placate a minority i...
A few suggestions. Do not give up on the idea that the country can rethink this decision. Yes, accept the verdict of the people. But watch and get involved as the people express their regret in growing numbers and in varying ways. Do not allow Boris Johnson, chief architect of this disaster, to become the Prime Minister. Do not allow him, Gove et al, to escape the scrutiny they deserve for the lies they told... If you think Corbyn has to go, join the Labour Party, and help make that happen so that it can become a proper functioning campaigning party again, not a hard-left sect and vanity project, as a general election nears.
Just looking at the list of people being talked about for the Labour and Tory leadership, and I can't help but think what a bunch of no mark political lightweights they mostly are. Barely one of them has any experience outside of politics, law, media, or charity. And not one of them looks like they could successfully run a corner shop let alone a country.
Trials and tribulations often expose the real mettle and character of people. This last week, we have seen how Corbyn has stood firm against a sea of opposition, unrelenting, on his democratic principles. Take heed, revolting MPs - your opposition to him is drawing not only public ire upon yourself, but public approbation and support for him.
I first realised that the odds for Remain were about to plummet when i was campaigning for Labour on council estates in Peckham for Sadiq Khan on the ...
Reports coming out of Brussels and Washington suggest that the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, otherwise known as TTIP, has been crippled, possibly killed, by Brexit. Informed sources suggest that TTIP will be parked until Britain's Article 50 negotiations have been completed and that there is now a possibility that the deal will never be concluded.
When Napoleon remarked 'In politics, stupidity is not a handicap' I doubt even he could have foreseen the damage of blending stupidity with unmasked plutocracy and obsequious entitlement. Last week's apathetic paroxysm by British citizens was far more about the obedient breakdown of society than it was about the affirmation of our individual and collective preservation.
When approached again and again by figures who have dedicated their lives to Labour, and whose combined wisdom and experience is immeasurable, to be told that the damage he is doing to the party is incalculable a man of principle, a leader, doesn't dig his heels in repeating the word 'mandate' as little more than a mantra. A man of principle, a leader, realises that sometimes he must sacrifice himself for the greater good.
It's the million voter question. But one that I doubt I'll be able to answer - especially given that the Labour Party itself is failing to be able to answer it, as Jeremy Corbyn has today announced that he will not resign even following the loss of a vote of confidence by 172 votes to 40.
Just over two-thirds of Labour's post-GE2015 members and supporters (68%) have retweeted, posted or forwarded a message supporting the Labour Party on social media and nearly nine out of ten (88%) claim to have signed a petition on behalf of the party. But only 15% of them have participated in door-to-door or telephone canvassing of voters or helped out at a party function...
It's not the pound that we should be worried about in these tumultuous times. Markets will recover, the economy will adjust to a post-Brexit reality, and we will find a way of protecting jobs, trade and investment.
On a final note, the scenes we have seen from the "Keep Corbyn" rally in Parliament Square tonight have been extremely worrying, and I for one am livid that Corbyn and McDonnell would condone this type of behaviour, sharing a protest with the SWP and people shouting about "Red Tories" and "right-wing scum".
