Under Jeremy Corbyns leadership the Labour Party has grown to over 500,000 members. In 2017 Lab gained seats at a General Election for the first time since 1997, got a higher % of the vote than in 2015, 2010 & 2005 (& almost equaling 2001), & cost the Tories their majority. (1/3)
Since the GE May's Govt has been: defeated more times than Major, Blair, Brown & Cameron combined, found in contempt of parliament for the first time in history, & suffered the biggest defeat for a Govt ever. Labour under Corbyn has been an incredibly effective opposition (2/3)
And Jeremy Corbyn will make an excellent Prime Minister, leading a transformative socialist Labour Government that will end austerity, begin investing in our services and communities, and kick start a Green Industrial Revolution. #GeneralElectionNow (3/3)

1) This is serious! Stop whingeing and whining that you don't like @jeremycorbyn you don't have to, what you should be looking at are Labour's brilliant COSTED policies and the party headed by a man who will bust a git to remain truthful and true to his word and implement them.
2) Some people es[ecially the crabby older generation (of which I am one) have moaned and droned on for years about not having people like Blair and Cameron as PMs that they wanted normal people who spoke without spin and told the truth. Well now we have such a man in
3) Jeremy Corbyn and what do you all do? You start whining and moaning about him being a NORMAL PERSON, FFS what do you want? In Corbyn, we have someone who is caring kind, truthful and decent and the Tory press and broadcast media recognise this and start smearing him and you

#poll If there was a Snap General Election, who would you vote for?

(For other parties, please vote them in comments)

Please RT once Voted! 😃
1997: Blair 13.5mn votes
1997-2015: Blairites/ Others lost 180 seats & 5mn voters
2017: Corbyn 12.8mn votes/ Gained 32


add first time voters (75% of those who vote, vote for Labour)

Subtract 2% of the population, 80% of whom vote Tories!

Labour Landslide on the cards!
Lab’s share of vote could be 14.5+mn

Once we take into account first time voters- 16 or under at 2017

first time voters -never voted before, disenchanted by Blair years whilst

removing Tory support -loss of voters due to old age

=> Lab will gain 100+ seats from Tories alone

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

Thread on #DeadChequers ... 1/ It's clear this morning that May is going to be pushed to ask for a Canada-style free trade agreement. She will use DUP and absence of Stormont Assembly to push through hard border. That's all in the Tory DNA...
2/~ The medium term effects of a Canada+ FTA will be to tank the economy and industrial investment flight. The UK will then fall apart, as United Ireland referendum and Scottish independence loom...
3/~ There is no section of British business that actively wants No Deal. Few have interests aligned to a Canada+ deal either. So: for Labour the way is open for a hegemonic offer. Norway+ and a second referendum...
