Are you with momentum Sid?
No

What did you mean about the muslims in china comment?
Getting with 'the programme' sounded a bit sinister, Sid, as in the re-education centres for Uighurs in Xinjiang.

"...the countless Muslims who have in some cases been held behind walls and barbed wire for one and a half years without a court order are benefitting from a "free vocational training programme". Xinjiang's head of government and deputy party leader Shokrat Zakir praised the "programme" to the skies this week..."

I was beginning to think you thought I should be rounded up and reprogrammed too...
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord deliver us...and while you're at it, a bit of a helping hand with hobbits wouldn't go amiss...

Haha, no. I get what you meant now. Fair enough.

What's happening to the Uighurs is shocking. They're modern day concentration camps and no one does anything about it because the state is too strong.

So Keir Starmer is the next person to lose to the tories. The centrists are back. The workers party now led by a knight of the realm, who when he was QC failed to prosecute over the Charles de Menezes murder, and the Ian Tomlinson murder. But that won't put middle England off. Expect another socialist / lefty exodus from the new capitalist party and with it their union subs.

He faces the task of keeping the neolib show on the road when it's effectively finished, died in 2008, finished off by corona in 2020. We have to spend now.

And tbf now the Tories have found the magic money tree and nicked all Corbyn's ideas that they called fantasy 6 months ago, Starmer looks more right wing than the Tories.
