In reaction to the General Election results Jeremy Corbyn said “it was a disappointing night of results for Labour”, no Jeremy the 2019 General Elections results weren’t ‘a bit disappointing’ for Labour, the General election results were fucking disastrous (then some) for Labour.
Jeremy Corbyn has now said he wants to stay on as Labour leader to oversee a ‘period of reflection’ as to why Labour lost the election, hey Jeremy you want to reflect upon why Labour have so devastatingly lost this election then go stand in front of the bathroom mirror, because time & time again Labour activists were met on the doorstep with “I would vote Labour if it wasn’t for Jeremy Corbyn being leader”.
Corbyn & McDonnell & co are saying the reason Labour lost this election was because of Brexit, I don’t deny that people wanting to get Brexit done wasn’t a factor with this election, but Labour’s policy on Brexit didn’t help any, to say Labour were going to renegotiate a Brexit deal with the EU but then tell people to vote against it in a referendum is a nonsensical bullshit mess of a policy & people saw it for the mess what it was.
If it ain’t Brexit which the current Labour leadership is blaming for this General Election defeat then it’s the mainstream news media, yes most definitely the mainstream news media have continuously vilified & smeared & egregiously demonised Jeremy Corbyn since was elected leader of the Labour Party, but it doesn’t matter how much I or any other Labour support might bitch about how much the mainstream news media have been utter evil cunts in continuously demonising Jeremy Corbyn, whining about doesn’t get us anywhere.
The harsh reality is the accusations of antisemitism have hang over Jeremy like a bad cloud & it’s toxic to the Labour Party, I certainly do not believe Jeremy Corbyn to be antisemitic nor an IRA sympathiser or anything else the mainstream news media have smeared him as & I’ve written countless articles defending Jeremy from the mainstream-news-media’s bullshit smears spun against him, but it doesn’t matter how much I think Jeremy has been a courageously compassionate & principled man because ultimately it’s what the voters think of Jeremy Corbyn & Labour which is of importance & the GE2019 result speak for themselves on that matter.
Jeremy Corbyn should have resigned already, he should have gone this morning, the 1983 General Election result under the leadership of Michael Foot is often considered as an utter fucking disaster for Labour, well Jeremy Corbyn has surpassed Michael Foot when it comes to leading Labour to a mitigating fucking electoral disaster, at least Michael Foot had the courtesy to take responsible for the ’83 result & fucked off pronto.
I know some will accuse me of being too quick to throw Jeremy under the bus for the defeat of Labour at this General Election or make out that I’m just in shock regards the GE2019 election result & should give myself a few days before I write anything meaningful or some other bullshit to dismiss what I’m saying here. Hey do you know who I truly blame for the GE2019 result? I blame myself as I twice voted for Jeremy Corbyn to be party leader & was one of his most ferocious cheerleaders, but here we are in the cold light of day & I’ve not only just helped to inflict further misery upon my life but on the lives of millions. The people of places such as Darlington & Workington & numerous other northern towns which were devastated by Thatcherism back in the 1980s, have just given a Thatcherite government a hefty parliamentary majority & many living in in such places will seriously come to regret it, but I as well as the Labour Party need to take responsibility for the regret they will come to feel in time.
I know some Corbyn supporters will no doubt point to the 2017 General Election where Labour gained seats under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn, well with the gift of hindsight me thinks that had more to do with Theresa May’s woeful performance as Tory leader then anything else, oh & Labour’s 2017 General Election manifesto was radical but not so radical it frightened people into thinking if they voted Labour they’ll be next be living under the rule of Marxist doctrine, you see before anybody accuses me of suddenly becoming some sell out watered down piss weak social-democrat that’s not in fact what I’m advocating at all, Jeremy Corbyn ostensibly won the argument on austerity, there were a lot of great ideas proposed by Labour with Jeremy as leader which have a great deal of public support such as axing tuition fees & renationalising the railways but the bottom line is Jeremy Corbyn was unable to sell those great ideas because of his past associations being toxic as fuck.
