Corbyn has fucked it. His approval ratings have been in continual decline since becoming party leader. We have the weakest government in living memory, but they're on target to gain a majority at the next election. Blame the media, blame the splitters, blame the Blairites, but the basic fact is that Corbyn couldn't win a meat raffle.

My local party has lost the vast majority of long-standing members - the people who have been out doorstepping at every election for thirty years, the people who were out leafleting every night for weeks before the referendum, the people who fought to win back our council from the Lib Dems. They've been pushed out by an angry, nasty mob of Momentum supporters who have done the square root of fuck all for the party. I've been hearing the same thing from Labour members across the country - they've slogged their guts out for the party for decades, but now they've been explicitly told that they're not welcome any more. Their long record of hard work counts for nothing, because a bunch of people who joined the party in the last couple of years have decided that they're a melt.

Anti-semitism is just a symptom of a wider problem. The Labour party has been hijacked by an inexperienced and rather unpleasant Facebook mob whose loyalty is to Corbyn rather than the party and who tolerate no dissent. They're actively sabotaging the grassroots infrastructure that Labour has relied upon to fight and win elections, all for some misguided sense of ideological purity. Corbyn is doing precisely nothing to unify the party and retain those experienced campaigners.

The Labour party should be running away with the opinion polls, they should be preparing for government, but they're completely rudderless and staring down the barrel of a humiliation in 2022. Corbyn has had three years to show some progress, but he is only moving backwards. Currently, the SNP are doing more to oppose the government than the official opposition; that's an untenable state of affairs. I don't endorse the split, but Labour desperately needs competent leadership and the country desperately needs a competent opposition.

There are no sufficiently competent MPs.
Corbyn may be utterly incompetent, but at least he doesn't think a good dose of 90s LARPing is all Labour needs to get back on top. For all his massive flaws, Corbyn has broken the party from the recent past. You can be snide if you want and go "oh, the past where they won elections???" but it's worth remembering after the 2015 election there was serious discussion of the terminal decline of the Labour party after losing Scotland to the SNP and UKIP's performance in so much of their heartlands. That discussion has now ended. I could give my whole manifesto on how Labour needs actual new thinking rooted in actual social democratic thought (read: too left wing for Blairites, inherently distrusted by Corbynites.) but honestly I don't see the point. Even if I was given single-handed control of party policy, I severely doubt any of the sitting MPs could be assembled into a functional front-bench. Definitely, there's not a leader amongst them. Christ, I couldn't find one in all of parliament - probably not in all of the party - or indeed the country.

Forget the losers who ran off to make their own clubhouse with d-ream being racist on television for some reason, forget the Blairites who stayed, forget our gutter press, the problem is the country. This country is sick to the core and beyond salvation. No other country is both so arrogant and yet so utterly gutless, cowardly and craven. No other European nation has screwed up their postcolonial transition as badly as we have. No other country on earth is so singlehandedly capable of producing so many utterly unsympathetic and often utterly uninteresting people and elevating them to positions of power and prominence. Everything else is symptomatic of the fact that at the end of the day we're a global disgrace.
Sometimes when I go to bed at night, I think that if I were a young man I would emigrate. But when I wake up in the morning, I ask myself whether there is any place else I would prefer to go.

You'd be surprised to learn I'm pretty cheerful and optimistic. I just have no time for incompetence, especially not incompetence with a pretence to maturity and reasonableness. The country's never going to improve if we sit around and pretend everything is actually going as well as it could be and just one change of party leader or one more coalition balanced out by the Lib-Dems will be enough to offset the accrued mistakes of the past 75 years.
Perhaps it's because I am a comparatively young man. There's no reason to let the tragicomic failure of one country get you down. Perhaps I'm wrong, and actually there's some hidden optimistic future, maybe from some startup executives who were drawn in to politics at the next election by the fresh old ideas of The Independent Group. (no not the newspaper.) You'll forgive me if I keep checking up on visa requirements though.

The infighting, propagated by the likes of the seven who've done one today is one of the big reasons for Labour's struggling in the polls. They've been lighting fires since Corbyn became leader and chastising him for not putting them out fast enough. I don't think Corbyn is some manner of Wunderkind, infalable and indefatigable in equal measure, but what these, frankly, bastards have done today is unforgivably selfish, stupid and short-sighted. The fact that these leaderless, mealy-mouthed, scoundrals think anyone would vote for them on their own non-existent merits is laughable, and that's exactly what I'll do when they lose their seats. Sadly, their vote splitting ways will quite possibly leave their seats open to Tories, which is a betrayal I can't begin to rationalise.

I'm sorry people are mean to them on Twitter, and any kind of Jew-hating nonsense is vile and it repulses me in the strongest terms possible, but unless they expect Jack Dorsey to give Corbyn and McDonnell admin priviledges there is a limit to what can be done.

I know this might be hard to believe after everything I've just written, but I don't like hating politicians. There are those I do hate, but for fine and specific reasons. However, I cringe when people call even the likes of Theresa May a "bitch" or slag off her jewelry or what have you, but I'm genuinelly fuming at these actions today. That's one, if not the sole, reason why it took me six hours to type something not totally unreadable in reply to your post.

That doesn't particularly have any relevance to where someone's domain registrar is located. If I'm reading this correctly, they've used a service called WhoIsGuard to hide the name and address of the person who registered it (common and not odd, I do the same) and people are freaking out about that? It's essentially the equivalent of going ex-directory.

It's a total non-issue.

The Independent Group bought a domain name from NameCheap, a US-based domain registrar. The ICANN rules governing domain names require that contact details for the domain name owner are published through the WHOIS system. NameCheap provide a free privacy service to all their customers; the registrant can be contacted via the privacy service, but their personal details are not made public. This is offered by the vast majority of domain registrars either by default or as an option, because it reduces the risk of spam and identity theft.

NameCheap (and many other registrars) use a registered office in Panama to provide this service, primarily because Panama has very strict privacy laws. Tax dodgers like Panama for the same reason, but it's obviously a sensible idea to base a privacy service in a country that respects privacy. Panamanian privacy laws have protected a great number of website owners against spurious libel lawsuits or attempts by governments to shut them down.

Personal data is currently unavailable through WHOIS due to an ongoing legal dispute between ICANN and the German data protection regulator, hence the "REDACTED FOR PRIVACY" entries; in normal circumstances, you'd see the contact details for the domain privacy service.

That makes a lot of sense. It's slightly odd that everything except PA/Panama has been redacted (even in domaincheap's whois record)

>>84967

Makes sense. There are two whois records for the IP that domaincheap's website is registered at, the other one being in Los Angeles:

OrgName: Namecheap, Inc.
OrgId: NAMEC-4
Address: 11400 W. Olympic Blvd. Suite 200
City: Los Angeles
StateProv: CA
PostalCode: 90064
Country: US
RegDate: 2011-01-28
Updated: 2017-01-28
Ref: https://rdap.arin.net/registry/entity/NAMEC-4

It's the typical thing of people not understanding what they're on about, deciding it's sinister and jumping to conclusions.

Oh, clear off. I've never done that once, but if you don't think having a sizable number of the PLP shitting all over the leadership hasn't hurt Labour's polling numbers you're thicker than two short planks. Corbyn has been undermined constantly and repeatedly from "centrists" who are either so old they're still scared of Militant or so stupid they think Blair was electoral gold dust who won his elections through political brilliance alone.

The economy needs to change, in the long term it is seizing up and slowing down, people don't want to run the country that way anymore because they can see it in the their day-to-day lives. That is why Corbyn's leadership and Brexit have taken place, and covering your ears and trying wish yourself back to the early-noughties won't help anyone, not even yourself or the seven silly sods who achieved nothing but helping the Conservatives yesterday.

Being called a "Trot" or some other such ancient, out-of-touch, nonsense aspersion in 5, 4, 3, 2, NEVER because you've been schooled and nay-nayed so many times you're just going to go back to nodding at Twitter posts and Times Thonk Pieces so you don't have to consider that the world is different now from how it was twenty-five years ago. Yes I'm projecting traits you probably don't adhere to, but I'm having fun, so, there. And you started it!

This is the equivalent of the socialism never had a fair chance argument, so we don't know what it really is like.

If something is truly going to work in politics it does it regardless of the best efforts of naysayers. No one complains that Blair didn't get a fair chance despite large parts of the party hating him. The issue isn't that people shouldn't be critical of dear leader and should give him a fair chance the issue is he hasn't persuaded them to.

Third way Neoliberalism I can stomach, but I can't abide Blairism. The Blair government was the least interesting, least radical, least long-term positive centre-left tribute act in the history of the Commonwealth and I can prove it mathematically.

No, no it isn't the equivalent of that at all. But again, wonderful job just diverting towards something I never said here or anywhere else to make your job much easier.

What I'm saying, in no uncertain terms, is that some Labour MPs are ideologically opposed to Jeremy Corbyn and that they've frequently fostered attempts to weaken or unseat him for ideological reasons. From the post-Brexit referendum leadership battle to yesterday's split, there have been numerous deliberate measures to seriously undermine him. In turn, this has had a negative effect on polling numbers as it has lead to a Labour Party in a near constant state of civil war. The agressors in these bouts of insurrection have overwhelmingly been the Centrist, Blairite, whatever you want to call them, Labour MPs, like the ones who left on Monday. They left, they called for leadership election to be rerun and I hold them responsible for much of Labour's struggling in the polls. The constant fear of a "hard left" takeover never materialised, no one was deslected, and it was only in recent weeks or the last couple of months, after years of intransigence and outright hostility towards the leadership, that these MPs began to lose no confidence votes of their own. Votes which they dismissed on the basis of not liking the results.

Despite your inane and constant "Dear Leader" jibes, Corbyn is not a sacred cow, he isn't beyond reproach and he isn't my third nan. However, I maintain that he is the best potential PM for this country given the long term economic change his government could lead to, and some whinging MPs who haven't realised what a shithole of a website Twitter is, and are frightened of being booted out by their frustrated local members shouldn't be undermining that.

This is called "being party leader". It comes with the territory. An effective leader rises above this and inspires the loyalists to stay onside.

Yeah, and if I fill your shoes with bits of glass and douse your socks with vinegar you could still play 90 minutes of football, but I don't see you scoring any goals or marking anyone out of the game. It's called being hobbled, and as I stated earlier there are serious ideological divides that are insurmountable for certain, former and current, PLP members to overcome. That's their damned problem and if they had decency or sense they wouldn't have stood again in 2017 on a Corbyn/McDonnell manifesto. It goes far deeper than Brexit and it's about the very basis of what the Labour Party is and they, the Blairtristinas oh... I'm giving people silly names too now! Whatcha' gonna' do?!, are the ones who are against Labour, not the post-2015 members, not the leadership and not me, they are.

I wish there had been a purge. There, I said it. The biggest mistake Corbyn has made is thinking these wormy creeps had any kind of backbone or desire for plurality. They're the ones who've been dictating and demanding, but apparently it only counts as a bad thing if you're left-wing. And if you're one of the Indefinable Eight then kicking yourself out of the party if more democratic than letting your local members do it, because... erm... oh, I actually have literally no idea how any of this is justifiable or appropriate.

I'm occasionally sympathetic to a Labour purge not for ideologically left-wing reasons, but because i'm genuinely convinced it's the only hope of getting some new blood and talent into the party and indeed into our party system. Roll the dice again and see where they fall.
>>85004
The ironic thing is that by going full-on into a purge Corbyn would've shown leadership, but that would be a hell of a monkey's paw to pull on the kind of people who can rationalise calling him dear leader while decrying his failure to impose his will on the party one way or another.

Three Tory MPs have resigned from party over its "shift to the right".

>it's being in the middle that wins you elections because that's where most people are, and that's okay.
this is bollocks though. there's a reason the liberals haven't been a serious contender since before the second world war.
Labour weren't in the middle in 1974, Thatcher was basically never in the middle - nice moderate people always preferred the SDP. Brexit was never the moderate position. You can't reduce politics down to a stupid little axiom that doesn't actually hold. Let alone if we go abroad and look at the radicalism of say New Zealand Labour circa 1984/7.

World history exists beyond 1979-2010. Read a fucking book.
