He needs to be gone. We need an effective opposition as TMs speech last night showed she is a wannabe dictator. Only card carrying members can get him out.

How about if you are a Labour member you decide what to do. OP YABU.

YANBU

By failing to properly fulfill his (very well-paid) role as Leader of Her Majesty's Opposition, Corbyn is enabling the shitshow and is as guilty of gross incompetence as the Tories are.

I wish I knew how! Yvette Cooper is providing better opposition from the back benches than he is.

Nope. He’s a breath of fresh air. He has integrity and I like him.

I believe most of the stories regarding him are efforts by other parties and those in his party who wish to claim the leadership.

I'd agree with you, were it not for seeing his ineptitude and damaging behaviour with my own eyes. Walking away from CRISIS talks because somebody you don't approve of is invited, when the talks are so very desperately needed is INSANE behaviour.

Long term member here and he's awful, awful, awful. Too sympathetic to those with anti-democratic values on the extreme left. No evidence of reading about, thinking about or interest in policy design. Unable to hold the coalition of democratic socialists and social democrats together. Too tolerant of bullying and worse on the basis that his friends must be good people by definition.

I'm staying in for the next leadership election. He will move on eventually. He is clearly tired.

The party used to be made up of socially-concerned joiners. Now the membership is generally retired and with a very 1968 mindset, often ex-SWP/Green or otherwise inclined to direct action politics. They show little attunement to society as it really is or awareness of new social challenges. They don't get far past war being bad and nationalisation good.

Both main parties are in a terrible state and the country is suffering for it.

He has integrity

No, he really doesn't.
He can be vocal in his support of unpopular issues. That's not integrity. It's stupidity.

°This.

TeamLannister Thu 21-Mar-19 17:35:45

No, I fully support him. He does have integrity. But hey, why have a man of principles when you can have austerity pushing, tax dodging, war mongers instead.

AstonishedFemalePersonator Thu 21-Mar-19 17:38:20

No, he really doesn't.

Agreed.

Poloshot Thu 21-Mar-19 17:42:57

No leave him where he is, he's fantastic to have as Labour leader as they remain unelectable.

TheGirlWithTheArabStrap Thu 21-Mar-19 17:44:51

I'm a member of the Labour party and I'm very pleased that JC is leader. After many years the Labour party is moving towards the values it was founded on.

deathbycats Thu 21-Mar-19 17:47:00

I’m a member and I think he’s a liability. I’d far rather Yvette Cooper was leader. Or Keri Starmer.

lyralalala Thu 21-Mar-19 19:44:43

I'm so annoyed with him today. It's very clear that one of the reasons TIG were invited was to try provoke a reaction from him.

Instead of him being able to say today "the meeting was pointless" as the other groups are saying, and the media focus being on the speech from TM last night it's about him and what is being portrayed as a childish strop.

When someone lays a trap for you the best thing to do is to avoid walking into it. Face of the matter is CU is the defacto leader of a group of 11 MPs at the moment, that's 1 more than the DUP which is very clearly why the SNP, Plaid etc were happy for him to be there as every vote is crucial atm.

When there is another General Election I’m sure the Labour Party will replace him as they won’t get anywhere with the prospect of him as Prime Minister.

Stripyhoglets Fri 22-Mar-19 09:13:54

We've tried and failed - the LP will need to lose another election before they even consider it and the momentum lot have taken over party leadership so will probably just get another similar leader anyway. I'm staying in to try and vote in an electable leader when i get the chance - but if it's another Corbyn type I'm giving up and leaving then.
I think he's a horrible person too - just not interested in compromise with anyone.
