Labour establishment already look to be getting rid of JC before the next election, probably begging the other Miliband to come take a byelection seat over the next few years

From Daisy Barber:

''Jeremy Corbyn was criticised yesterday for 'snubbing' the opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup, citing prior commitments. As Boris Johnson put it “This is turning into a national joke…Come on Jezza: Scrum down for England."

His prior commitment was a running weekly appointment to meet with his constituents. Yesterday he sat down for a private meeting with my sister in law to talk about her housing situation.

Despite a waiting room full of people outside, and having recently been elected Leader of the Opposition, he nevertheless took his time to listen to and her story and fully understand the issues.

He treated her with compassion and dignity throughout, and promised to personally look into the case. On top of that, he insisted she return later so he could meet her kids, and then took the time to explain to my nieces the exact process required to make jam (there are things called pectins which are apparently very important).

By this time it gone 5pm on a Friday, when he should otherwise have been en route to the RWC.

Pretty much every MP holds surgeries in their constituency on a Friday as that's when they're less likely to be needed in Parliament..

And I hope they're not all wasting time talking to kids about Jam .

Any involvement with Dianne Abbot should be a massive red flag IMO.

ShaneB talking sense in here.

Heard a brief snippet on the radio today about Osbourne's plan to rid the free school meals system?

Trailofdavid that is so galling. Boris Johnson is a joke of a politician, holding down multiple journalist and book deals while mayor, taking obscene levels of holiday and by all accounts having nothing to do with the day to day running of the Mayor's office, I find it shocking anyone of any political belief can want him in power.

The mainstream media is a joke. Smearing Corbyn almost as much as they were smearing Farage / UKIP.

Bunch of jobsworths.

Worst thing about this whole pig fucking thing is that's probably the least offensive thing David Cameron has ever done to someone/something in his entire life and career.
