Labour in peril

Postby Captain Sisko » Wed Feb 20, 2019 11:04 am

8 MPs now have left the Labour party!


Eighth MP to resign

So many changes this year and many more to come!

Not sure what the Asda-Sainsbury merger has to do with it ;)

Three Tories have joined now. Would need to be an awful lot more and with some actual policies before it's anything other than a footnote in politics.

Oh crap I posted the wrong link!!! I sent that link to the girlfriend whose sister works at Sainsburys

There seems to be quite a bit more political unrest recently

When they leave the party to stand on their own, should they give up their seat too and have a by-election?

Definitely not. People vote for an MP and not for a party: If their MP was doing a good job before, then they should carry on doing a good job after.

You seriously believe the majority of people vote that way? I'd suggest that the majority are "party voters" and the number who vote for the person is relatively small.

Technically that's how people should vote.

I voted for the party not the MP.
We still have a Labour MP in our area though

Just because people are idiots and don’t understand how the system works, doesn’t mean we should change the system. ;)
