The death of Labour – not with a bang but with a whimper
Shiraz Socialst 5 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks, 3 Days, 12 Hours, 56 Minutes ago
Car-crash television doesn’t even describe it. Last night’s election results placed the Labour Party on 16% of the national vote, which leaves continuing government claims of democratic legitimacy ringing even more hollow than they were b...

Oh dear, this is all a little intemperate of you... Not that I really care that much, but idle curiosity provoked me to half-heartedly poke around the comments given that your "email address" is "youknowwhoitis@gmail.com" or some such. Your IP and t...

voltairespriest, you are being a paranoid twerp -- again. Rubbish my arse. Wrong. Wrong. Thrice wrong. Not sure what the 'dusty joke' is about, nevermind. Perhaps you have heatstroke. Watching something on BBC4 having been told by someone here that i...

Ridley Rubbish, you must be a very sad man if you spend your days monitoring BBC4 to see if I'm on it, just so that you can re-heat an old, dusty, not-very-funny joke... ;) You're entirely right about No2EU though - as is Jim. It was a total misadve...

In what way did No2EU crash and burn? Polled third with 153,236, behind the other nationalist anti-Europe parties on 2,498,226 and 943,598 respectively. Hey, they hammered the Jury Team.

Dave Osler of Dave's Part provides the following reality check: North East: No2EU - 8,066 (1.37%) SLP - 10,238 (1.74%) Total - 18,304 (3.11%) So the Scargillites - a party that exists only on paper - beat Crow, the CPB and the Millies, which collec...

In what way did No2EU crash and burn? In existence for two months and it gets 150,000 votes, despite the SLP for competition?

This is all too exciting! At current we have a silly election system where it is first past the post - it could be conducted much fairer. We also have the 2 main parties where the majority votes - either Labour or Conservative. For a smaller party...

Just watched your latest telly appearance on BBC4 -- shaved your head special and everything, but the shirt was diabolical. With the orange head, you ended up looking like a bespectacled jaffa cake.

The high showing for the BNP is not just a reflection on the Labour Party or even a general populist anti-politics mood. It's also a serious indictment of the antifascist movement as a whole. It's imperative that long standing tactics are analysed...

Corrected to the nearest round figure - you're a gent, sir. :)...
