“Labour membership is on course to hit 600,000, a half-century peak”, (The New Statesman). after a second successive day in which more than 100,000 people have applied to become party members.
As far as social media presence is concerned, 'Saving Labour', which is a right wing group funded by private money has over 4,000 likes at time of writing, while 'Momentum' which is a grassroots rank and file Corbyn supporting group has 53,808.
If this was a fight, the referee would have stopped it by now to save the PLP
Blairites further punishment.
figures for Scotland ?
You know this blog is rubbish. You are either being downright nasty to people, or you are so lazy you think cut and paste from other sources gives you a coherent basis for discussion.
A man without an original thought in his head (nothing wrong with that indeed), but who uses other people's words and ideas and portrays them as his own. If it weren't so petty and lowlife it would be close to plagerism.
How many in Scotland?
The last time I checked Scotland was part of the UK.
I am indeed downright nasty to people but only to nasty people.
(The New Statesman) I credited the story, you are an idiot. Plagiarism is when you print something you copied without crediting the original writer, you are beyond parody.Social media is now suggesting that we are heading for a million members, but that is just what people are suggesting, it hasn't yet happened so I am not crediting anyone with it, you are well out of your depth aren't you, another snp moron.
Scotland is part of the UK idiot, so am I and so are you.
so you don't know the figures for Scotland (I'll refrain from gratuitpous insults, unlike you...)?
Yes Scotland IS in the UK but only a complete imbecile wouldnt be able to see why the question is a pertinent one.
Your avoiding of the question is fooling no-one apart from you.
How many people have joined from Scotland.
Also you cannot claim to be on the left of the Labour party when you have blindly backed them throught the Blair era.
Only a complete imbecile would regard Scotland as pertinent in a UK party's membership and , I have on every occasion possible voted against Blair since he appeared on the scene. You wouldn't understand that because you people do not dare disagree with the SNP leadership.
I don't know the figures for Scotland, or Wales, or Yorkshire, or Merseyside etc, because we are referring to the membership of a UK party. I don't know the figures for Glasgow either, it's rocket science isn't it.
The text of your item is all copied and pasted from several newspapers, yes some of us do read the 'quality' press.
You probably don't expect that from those you feel free to insult.
Petty and lowlife indeed.
The source of my post is credited you moron. You are just not coping with this 500,000 and growing membership are you?.
Let me get this right - you don't care where in the UK the Labour Party membership comes from, yet you put forward candidates for the 'Scottish Labour Party' (or accounting unit as it is known to the Electoral Commission). What was your Party description on the 2012 local authority ballot paper?
Is that the first time you have heard this? For the avoidance of doubt and so the slowest of brains can take it in, I couldn't care less where a person comes from whether that person be a candidate or a guy who comes to mend a broken window his/her place of origin is meaningless to me. Anyone who takes someone's origin into account before their ability is a pathetic idiot. Are you suggesting the the SNP should not stand candidates for the Westminster parliament, the EU parliament? have you thought this through, do you actually think?.
So in that case, why do you stand as a *Scottish* Labour candidate in local elections?
To win votes for the Labour Party, why do SNP candidates stand for the SNP in UK elections?.
How does the *Scottish* Labour Party appointing an MP who resigned from the Shadow Cabinet as "Westminster Spokesperson" fit in with your anti-nationalist narrative?
Can you try rewriting this and include a hint of what you are on about?.
Certainly - I apologise for confusing you.
1 - You consistently assert that you recognise no national boundaries within the UK
2 - However, you stand for election for the self-described *Scottish* Labour Party
3 - The single *Scottish* Labour Party member of the UK parliament resigned from the UK Shadow cabinet, but has been appointed as *Scottish* Labour's spokesperson for the UK Parliament
4- This looks very much like a clear divide emerging between the UK and *Scottish* Labour Party
5 - Where do you stand on this?
If you still feel I'm not being clear, please let me know.
My stance on this is that he is free to do as he chooses, just as the Scottish Nationalist Party elected members are free to go to Westminster and the EU parliament. I don't care where anyone comes from or who they are but I'm sure I've told you that before, you are clearly incapable of thinking outside the tartan bubble that you live in.
Thanks for clarifying that for me. The prism that you look at this through is that it is an individual's choice to 'do as he pleases', rather than a political decision made by your *Scottish* Party leader (I assume that you participated in the vote when she was elected)making an appointment to her shadow government. It seems a very strange way to engage in politics, but I suppose that's up to you, and an obviouis result of your denial that Scotland is a nation (despite your own party's acknowledgement of the fact).
It mut be very frustrating for you - perhaps that's why you often lower yourself to schoolboy insults.
I will tell you this for the last time I have already been over generous in dealing with you and other idiots on this issue. Now pay attention please, I couldn't care less about Scotland, I care about the UK of which Scotland is a member, I couldn't care less about Scottish people I care about people. When I look for instance at the completely useless mendacious nonentity that is Nicola Sturgeon I do not see a useless mendacious 'Scottish Nonentity, I just see a useless mendacious nonentity. If you want to carry on with your ludicrous obsessing about how many tartan angels can dance on the head of a pin and twisting yourself into a black knot about Scotland then please free to do so but, you will no longer be doing it on this blog.
"I care about the UK" - What about people in the rest of the world? Don't you care about them?
I care about everyone, I regard myself as an International Socialist.
So, as a, 'international socialist' how are you campaigning for the abolition of the UK?
