    They'll remain in power for as long as the sun and daily mail support them.

    Still... Stand by what I said. They will be forever known as thr party that let infighting get out of hand.

    It's very preaching to the converted, isn't it?

    In 2022, there won't be Remainers and Leavers; there will be those responsible and those not. Labour have failed to shine a spotlight on the way that the Tories have failed to pin the blame for putting Party interest ahead of country interest on the Tories where it belongs but that doesn't mean they can escape blame entirely. By 2022, we'll be looking at twelve years of really bad economic growth, twelve years of negative wage growth - spotted with the odd moment of mediocre growth - and, if the current incompetence is anything to go by, an utterly chaotic and disastrous Brexit.

    Labour being a bit <rude word for poo> won't save the Tories. Cameron's nice face delivered them a majority in 2015, but May is a complete non-entity and no-one better is lining up to take her place.

    If you want a Tory future, you should be seriously worried. My side may not be glowing but your side has managed majority rule in exactly two of the last twenty years.

    Just commenting on laughable labour propaganda presumably posted in this thread to get a reaction - but that’s backfired lol. Do you think it’s good?!

    You won’t have Corbyn and you won’t have unchallenged ridiculous spending and duped students and remainers to prop up the Labour Party in 2022.

    As for brexit it’s the new millennium bug...

    When we worked on the Millennium bug, we actually had a plan?

    Try not to worry it will be a Tory brexit not a labour one.

    Ah, you seemed rattled to me. Please remind me how did you lose a planned landslide election result.

    Rattled by that video? I have to say I would give people on here more credit that to post that as some sort of credible response to the student con fiasco. Do you think it’s good and not at all patronising?

    Duped students and remainers allowed labour to lose by only 50 seats - the tories are here to stay - even Corbyn doesn’t bother with that ‘election footing’ ‘pm by September’ drivel any more.

    You keep saying they duped students but where is that coming from from other than the conservatives and right wing press?

    If it’s not a problem why are we being subjected to that awful momentum video - what are they scared of? Lol

    Do you like the momentum video?

    Clearly rattled judging by your rhetoric.

    Rather than waffling why don’t you answer the question?

    The point about the Conservative saying Labour should apologise for a non-existing manifesto pledge, when the conservative manifesto went straight out the window is hard to argue with.

    Which withdrawn bits of the Tory manifesto have meant that Tory voters have lost out on tangible money? Did the tories promise to scrap student fees and then renege on it for example?

    Didn't even watch it. Don't really have much time for them. Don't know much about them.

    No, and neither did Labour.

    It's a problem because Tory lies made it a problem. Of course Labour would respond with a counter argument.

    I actually quite like it ;) and yeah, the Tories are full of ****.

    No, we'll have twelve years of economic failure, the incompetent handling of Brexit, and the consequences of the Lib Dems and Tories loading up the younger generation with debt to play with. I don't imagine that Labour has the next election the bag, by any means, but if you don't realise that the Conservatives are in a right state, you must be blind.

    Are you actually so utterly ignorant that you think the Millennium Bug was anything other than an incredible success story? The problem was recognised, people were mobilised, and we dealt with the problem. The Millennium Bug should be the poster boy for what happens when you face a really, deeply, serious problem with resolve and planning. A monument to how humanity can face up to its challenges and win by collective action.

    Brexit isn't the Millennium Bug; it's the absolute antithesis of it. It's what happens when you let people who don't understand make a decision, and then resolutely resolve not to bother facing up to the problem caused by the outcome.

    Gas bills - which the Tories promised to cap - just went up.
