Blairite fury over Corbyn poll boost

A number of right-wing Blairite MPs have voiced outrage over the rising popularity of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, after several polls suggested he is now more popular than hard-right Prime Minister David Cameron.

An anonymous Labour MP told Newscrasher: “Jeremy Corbyn’s rising popularity is a fucking disaster for those of us who broadly agree with Tory austerity.”

“It just isn’t realistic to think that Labour could win a general election on a platform of getting the wealthy to pay their fair share of tax, and using the money to improve the lives of the poor. With Corbyn at the helm, the party is totally unelectable as far as voters earning £100,000 or more are concerned. ”

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a former Labour Prime Minister said: “Jeremy’s a nice guy and probably means well, but Alastair and I feel he just doesn’t have what it takes on defence. He probably hasn’t even got the guts to start an illegal war, causing millions of civilian deaths and plunging an entire region into turmoil.”

Speaking about tentative plans to topple Corbyn, another Labour MP said: “Our attempts to damage Corbyn’s credibility with continuous leaks and back-stabbing in the media haven’t been effective, so it’s now time to stab him in the front.”

“Jeremy needs to understand that left wing ideals and skateboarding are exactly the same thing. Having a long-held belief in improving the lives of the poor and vulnerable, to be paid for by taxing the rich, is like saying: ‘I’m going to skateboard until I die.’ It’s just ridiculous. Grow up!”

    Would any voter in the UK ( Labour or other party member) trust an MP like that one? I wonder

  2. And two other Labour MPs using the pseudonyms Bradshaw and Doughy together with an ex-Labour Home Sextesary all representing the Christians on the Left movement stated that unless we don’t support Tony Blair and bomb the shit out of Syria then Europe will be flooded by refugees.

  3. For the first time since Harold Wilson, I think the Labour Party, ONLY if it is led by Jeremy Corbyn, actually stands for the humane, idealistic, Christian[ love your neighbour as yourself,] ideals of a country I can be proud of. New Labour under Blair was just conservatives in disguise, and Labour has lots of in disguise Conservatives in it. I hope their ground root party constituencies put real Labour candidates up for the next election.

  4. I wish to make a complaint… this article should not be here because its not satire, and god damn it I came here to be entertained – not have the very real views of John Woodcock(up), Jamie “dodger” Reed, Angela “stole from” Smith, Simon “I’m still pissed and texting young totty” Danczuk, Chuka “another pleb on the fire” Umunna presented as a satirical content.

    Yours, slightly miffed of Tunbridge Wells.
