Yes, I agree. But it's a fine line isn't it. The interviewers can wind one up no end, can't they.
I didn't see the Madeley interview, but someone like say Piers Morgan always goes for the throat wanting you to bite.
Even in the softly softly days, Parkinson would sometimes keep chipping away...
Sure, the £3 thing was a contributing factor but, being on many other forums and boards at the time, as soon as Corbyn put his name forward back in 2015 I was taken aback at the widespread love in. And this wasn't just looney lefties, it was across the spectrum.
This convinced me...
And it's fairly evident that it's not right or left that wins power, but personality/charisma of the leader:
Blair v Major - no contest
Blair v Hague - no contest
Blair v Howard - no contest (despite Iraq)
Cameron v Brown - no contest (although Clegg spoiled the party somewhat)
Possibly, but given that Kier himself is not exactly hard left, I don't see why he should.
I think Corbyn was a bit of an aberration; Labourites just got swept up in the whole romance of it. Until it turned to dung that is. Burnham, if he does end up being the next chosen one, certainly isn't...
Ha, yes. The amicable terms quickly soured.
Given there isn't actually much news as such on GB News, I think it will fail.
Essentially it's just a 24/7 chat show. These things are more effective on radio, in that you don't need to see the people talking as there is nothing to see.
I think as far as Sir K goes, anything will be too little too late. He's not going to tear it up with a barnstorming speech. Even if he does, lots of people and especially the right leaning media will just dismiss it as contrived.
He just isn't the man but Labour are probably stuck with him...
Kier has just released a document on his "Vision for Labour".
John McDonnell was quick off the mark to rubbish it calling it a long essay unlikely to inspire voters and likening it to "the Sermon on the Mount written by a focus group".
You go girl! Handbags at dawn.
Interesting to see how their media is playing it over there. Like you said, if this was under Trump, CNN would be shredding him to pieces.
Like I said, we've got 3 more years of cover-ups and excuses to look forward to. Not from Fox natch, but they're pretty much a lone voice Stateside.
Interesting to note too, that in their presser yesterday, Boris Johnson was quite happy to take 3 questions from the reporters floor, but then when it came to Sleepy's turn, the reporters were shut down and gramps was promptly ushered out of the door.
3 more years of this damage limitation...
