@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Grab yourself a brew, here's the context...
Although, you are quite right, this government is thoroughly incompetent it has gone from a majority to a crumbling minority that can't win a single vote under Corbyn's opposition.
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Wealth inequality is obscene&the elites who wish to see Tory rule continue still have massive power through their control of the media,privatised public services&corporations.
No political figure in history has faced(let alone endured) onslaught that Corbyn has had thrown at him.
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby It's not because he's incompetent, it's because power& privilege fear him. It's not him that they're attacking either it's socialism,it's the policies that take away their privilege for a fairer society,it us &our collective strength.
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Add to that the remnants of New Labour clinging onto various power structures throughout the party, plotting,briefing&sabotaging to,as Watson said "Isolate and weaken JC and ultimately crush the life out of his leadership",whilst other rebels delayed anti-Semitism disciplinary
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby action to make Corbyn look inactive/incompetent.
Corbyn meanwhile inherited a party in the doldrums,deep in debt,after 2 catastrophic defeats,5m voters&much of its membership lost&has transformed it.
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Membership tripled to the biggest political party in Western Europe,debt wiped out,reliance on(beholdenness to) millionaire donors gone,internal democracy in the process of being restored to members/Conference.
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Throw into the mix the hugely divisive&difficult issue of Brexit,that has split all the main parties.When GE2017 was called,the story wasn't who will win,but how big will May's majority be.The right wing of the party against Corbyn's wishes went into a defensive strategy until...
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby the final weeks of the campaign when it was too late to move resources into winnable seats&this undoubtedly cost us the election. Despite all the barriers&with media impartiality rules during election campaigns we came from 25% behind to nigh on level pegging&
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby 13m votes cast for Corbyn(most since'97),the biggest increase in vote share since 1945&the swing during the campaign itself was the biggest in UK political history.

It has been a HUGE achievement.
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Since 2017 with media impartiality gone again&Brexit, we've fluctuated in polls&at times been in the lead by 9+%.
We're currently level or there abouts.
Corbyn also now holds the record for inflicting parliamentary defeats on governments (a record previously held by Thatcher).
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Mark my words once a new election is called and the excellent 2019Manifesto is released (the awesome 2017 one had to be rushed out for the snap election, this one will be miles better)&media impartiality restored we will destroy this weak government.
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Corbyn's long game is impeccable &always emerges smelling of roses.
It's not a level playing field, power & privilege will always throw everything at stopping socialism& previous leaders have wilted& compromised.
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Compromise,is Centrism&it has human victims,hence New Labour haemorrhaged support&the damage can still be seen now with lingering distrust of Labour due to Blair, Iraq, politicians' integrity etc.
@daveallsop1 @JamesEFoster @MitchBenn @savage_home @BethRigby Nothing is easy but Socialism is the right thing to do and is worth fighting for. Corbyn has brought us to the brink against all odds. It is success, not failure and you'd be a coward and a fool to flinch now. It takes courage to stand up and fight.
