Yes, I'm fully aware of how Australia is made up. What is the point you're making?
I wasn't making a point, I did not understand your point about India and Pakistan, but I have subsequently read further posts and now understand what you were getting at

More self implosion from the Labour party, Tom Watson IMHO is far more electable than Corbyn and for Momentum to try and do this will only mean Labour in opposition for years to come

The Labour Party conference....what a clusterf**k!!!! 😂
In "Normal" times that conference would be virtually a victory parade with the Government so divided too, Labour would and should be miles ahead in the Polls but no, They are even more divided and unelectable than ever. Whatever your politics this country needs a strong opposition when the Government is in such a mess too

Unfortunately Corbyn makes Vlad Putin seem a more attractive candidate. He's not such a liar as Johnson but maybe that's because he never takes a position.
To be honest I was unhappy to see him poking his oar in during the school global warming strike : they don't need him. Retire mate.

When you base an entire political party around a personality cult you don’t deserve the support of the wider public. I can’t believe I voted for this rabble last time round.

I genuinely thought he'd be a good leader and would do something but the last two years have shown him to be the worst leader, totally non understanding of the Brexit situation within his party and Labour supporters especially leave ones up North. To my mind his best attribute is as a pain in the arse backbench MP annoying his leader

Here.
Apparently, his popularity rating is lower than Michael Foot's. Which, to be fair, can be classed as quite an achievement.
