I hate to say "I told you so" - but I did. Over & over. As did a few others.

Dan Norris has won #WestOfEnglandMayor for #Labour making it one of the few LAB gains in #LocalElections2021.

In doing so, he also wrecked my forecast (see bit.ly/3uqY0Uu) the Conservatives would just hold on!

So what went wrong?

My...

... blog makes it clear that my forecast was in fact the minimum CON needed to do to win & was based on a number of assumptions.

The final vote tally saw LAB with 40k votes ahead of CON & crunching the numbers breaks the reason for this into 4 parts.

First an aside.

When analysing elections using Supplementary Vote, it's more correct to look at number of votes rather than vote shares.

That's because there are a number of steps to the final vote totals & errors can multiply along the way.

So the 1st reason for the 40k difference is ...

The analysis of electoral results is full of distortion, just like pre-electoral advertising lies and soon to come lies in a battle of lefty agendas.

A system that at every level builds lies is corrupt. It guarantees the worst outcome for all

So what do the data say?⬇️
First GE19 (Hartlepool context)

Corbyn...honestly, I think he was a strategic disaster for Labour, but it's dishonest to say he was the main reason LAB lost.

It's also a lie to say #Brexit lost it.

The overwhelming and unaddressed factors?

Britain’s #Political #Media Corruption: A Coalition of the Guilty – Byline Times bylinetimes.com/2021/04/26/bri…
From #Leveson to #Brexit, phone-hacking to #CambridgeAnalytica, Peter Jukes sees a consistent theme – parties on the run from the rule of law. And how Dominic #Cummings could end the cycle of corruption

During the current furore over leaks from Number 10,
and the apparent internecine warfare between Boris #Johnson and his former senior advisor Dominic #Cummings, one piece of information emerged which, if true, does a lot to explain the current febrile state of British politics.
According to Caroline Wheeler and Gabriel Pogrund

@JonahFurman So your "research" was #Triggered by the #MichaelBrown shooting

No bias there then!

Especially as there's even a #WaPo article by a #BLACK writer admitting "'#HandsUpDontShoot’ was built on a lie"!!!

And did you read the comments?!?!

@JonahFurman And did you read the comments on your #WaPo "research"?!

90% of murderers in NYC & 94% in Washington DC are Black

So what proportion of Black deaths would you expect during murder arrests in those cities

13%?

Because that's the proportion of Blacks in the US?!

And 51% women! ImageImageImageImage

Multinational retail giants @hm
and @Nike are facing severe criticism on Chinese social media following their statements expressing profound concern over forced #labour reports in northwestern #Xinjiang province.
@hm @Nike In September last year, H&M issued a statement in response to the growing international scrutiny of China's use of Uyghurs in forced labour in Xinjiang.
@hm @Nike In the statement, the clothing retailer stated that it was "deeply concerned about reports from civil society organisations and the media alleging forced labour and persecution against ethnoreligious minorities" in Xinjiang.

For The Many

As the sun sets on Jeremy’s last day as Labour Leader it is fitting that #ThankyouJeremyCorbyn is trending.
Jeremy’s leadership has seen the #Labour Party transformed into not only the biggest political party in #Europe
but also transformed into a mass social movement.
A movement which is firmly against austerity and for real change. Jeremy and our newly inspired party came within a whisker of winning in 2017 and has changed the political landscape in this country.
Finally after mass disillusionment in politics, after the #Iraq war and immigration mugs, because of Jeremy’s leadership we have become the party of #peace and #equality The party of socialism, the party that stands up for the many not the few.

I perfectly "understand what women go through & our struggles"

I KNOW It's REALLY problematic for most of you to use male logic & reason instead of FEEEELLLZZZZ

While clearly you "never understand what MEN go through & OUR struggles"

Issue is a TINY minority of men...
@Ellie74327894 @JadeAeg 2. As I said

The issue is a TINY minority

Yes of men

As well as now most WOmen

Brought up to HATE by WOMEN

Boys are brought up to hate men & themselves as #ToxicMasculinity #EvilPatriarchy

BY THE #ToxicMATRIARCHY

And many of those boys no doubt end up hating women too...
@Ellie74327894 @JadeAeg 3. Is it any wonder so many boys but still a tiny minority are driven to rejecting themselves & wanting to become part of Gay community or even Trans one

Or that some grow up to kill women who hate them & spend lives in what seems to be sole motivation & focus of lives: misandry

“Such ravages to the local population’s existing mode of life meant Spanish attempts at subjugation were met with resistance. Indigenous anticolonial movements rejected the sort of communication & collaboration demanded by the Spanish, seeking instead to reassert local cultures.
In some areas, such as the Sierra Zapoteca, rebellions were led by caciques who revived the culture of ‘old gods’ in order to encourage the youth to take up arms in a violent struggle for their liberation.
People of the Taki-Onqoy movement claimed bodily possession of Huachi gods as a way of cleansing themselves of Christian conversions, and prophesised a millenarian upheaval that would destroy the Spanish in a wave of pestilence and floods.

ONE LAST TIME...
36 years ago, today, I arrived back home, at 4am, after travelling back from a week's fund raising in #Rome (somebody had to do it!).
#Derbyshire #NUM had asked me to go, after pickets at #Felixtowe docks had received support from #Italian seamen,
who then arranged a fund raising visit...
An eye opening trip, that was eventually to prove life changing, had shown to me, at first hand, the magnificent international solidarity we received that fateful year.
I slept on the floor of a squat, on the setee of the person
who subsequently became my greatest friend, and addressed meetings in occupied buildings, universities and public halls...
It was at the last meeting, in Rome University, on Saturday the 3rd of March, that an Italian comrade read, in his newspaper, that the strike was to end...

#Panorama - Has the Government Failed the #NHS?,
#BBC One, 27 April 2020

Summary of complaint
We have received complaints from some viewers who felt that the programme was biased against the #govt.
Our response
The programme raised legitimate questions about the govt’s role in ensuring that the #UK is providing #NHS workers with adequate personal protective equipment (#PPE), which we would consider to be of great public interest at this particular time.
The #Panorama investigation also included four significant revelations:
* That the billion plus figure of items of #PPE that the govt has supplied included cleaning products and individually counted gloves.
* That gowns, visors, swabs

#Brexiteer billionaire moves Grenadier production to… #EU
"That #Brexit is clearly a major factor at play is a bitter pill to swallow," the MP for #Bridgend tweeted.
First it was #Dyson, now Grenadier has decided to up sticks and move out of Britain
after its Brexiteer founder lauded the “excellent access to supply chains” in #France.
Billionaire Sir Jim #Ratcliffe, a #Leave campaigner in the run-up to the 2016 Brexit referendum, confirmed a new 4×4 vehicle will be built in #Moselle after hailing the “unique opportunity”
that the #Hambach site offered. It ends hopes his new off-roader, based on the original Land #Rover, would be made at a new plant in #Wales.
At the time Mr Ratcliffe said a factory in #Bridgend was “a significant expression of confidence in #British manufacturing”.

It is my conclusion that Keir #Starmer is neither capable nor fit to lead the #Labour party.
If Labour wants to win the next general election, whenever that may be, we must prioritise replacing him.
I am a clause one socialist, that means my sole objective is to campaign for Labour to win power. We cannot win with Starmer, so we have no choice but to replace him.
Starmer's poor polling can't be blamed on vaccine success but for his vacuousness (Total lack of ideas, meaning, or substance: barrenness, blankness, emptiness, hollowness, inanity, vacancy, vacuity).

Labour Party leader, Sir Keir #Starmer, has been severely censured by the Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers. Starmer resigned from the society when he was appointed DPP in 2008.
But he has now been banned from the Society of Socialist Lawyers because he is “demonstrably not a socialist”.
In a direct challenge to the govt, the academic board of University College London (UCL), which is the university’s highest academic authority,

Gavin Williamson has threatened to cut funding to universities that do not adopt the #IHRA’s discredited working definition.

#Labour Blue ~ Under ‘new’ Management… travelling the same old road…
The labour Party (Progress/Neoliberals) has a very real problem with structural class bigotry. They have a deeply-rooted sense of entitlement - they are riddled with class bigotry
akin to the attitude revealed by upper-middle class superiority complexes that 'naturally' assume that the working class of foot-soldiers to deliver leaflets and listen to the 'betters' the better educated who are self-chosen leaders/natural leaders
who resent listening to those from below the stairs.... Structural class bias and bigotry feeds the sense of entitlement - looking down on the peasants who MUST know their place.... "Deliver the leaflets - and Shut-up" Flows through the ‘new management’...

As the Canadians have been finding with CETA, despite an agreement, it is virtually impossible - and largely uneconomic - to export food to the EU. We cannot live with this arrangement either.

#Brexit
Sadly we won't get any sense out of the Tories so Labour needs to stop infighting and get serious about hard policy. It's already obvious the TCA isn't good enough. If #Labour cares about jobs, they need to get serious about trade.
That, though, cannot revert to clueless bleating about the single market and customs union. That's a long way off, if ever. We need a strategy for the situation as it is today.

Greens move into third in the polls as Labour left move out It comes amid signs that Sir Keir #Starmer is looking to park his tank on the #Tories' lawn.

Jack Peat by Jack Peat February 8, 2021in Politics
The Green Party has moved ahead of the Liberal Democrats into third place in the polls amid signs that the #Labour left could be deserting the party.

New Ipsos MORI research for the Evening Standard shows the party lead by Jonathan Bartley and Siân Berry has picked up
three percentage points from Sir Keir #Starmer’s Labour, which has been accused of parroting the #Tories of late in a bid to win back Red Wall seats.

where we focus on the role of the #British press in delivering the extreme right wing govts of Boris Johnson, Dominic Cummings, the United States
The Role of the #Media
I have no plans to relive any of the most despicable media output ever to disgrace the name of the 4th Estate. One of the main functions of an active, intelligent and questioning press is to hold those that govern us to account.
The #British #press have not only failed miserably to do that, but they have aided and abetted the very liars, fraudsters and racketeers who have taken over #Parliament and stolen the nations cutlery.

Leaked plans revealed that the Labour party leadership are seeking to 'rebrand' the party along 'patriotic' lines. With Starmer's approval ratings falling, the right think that cloaking themselves in Union flag bunting will win back the 'red wall'. [A THREAD]

Image: @guardian Image
As we have explained, this flag-waving rhetoric is doomed to fail: "Rather than lulling ‘Red Wall’ voters back to Labour, it plays straight into the hands of [the Tories], who will have no qualms about pulling politics even further to the right." #Starmer

In light of the recent events involving the owners of #Cannoli and their manager,
we at the Centre for Labour Research (CLR), in the interest of protecting the
fundamental human #right to #dignity, condemn any and all forms of #harassment.
2/12
The viral video in which the owners of Cannoli are seen singling out and
humiliating their manager due to his inability to speak the colonisers language for
their entertainment depicts a form of #workplaceharassment. Such behaviour is
unacceptable.
3/12
It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that each and every employee,
regardless of their #employment status, the sector of employment, or their
occupation feel safe, respected and included at the workplace.
