Jeremy Corbyn Win: Bliss.

with 19 comments

Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,
But to be young was very heaven!--Oh! times,
In which the meagre, stale, forbidding ways,
Of custom, law, and statute, took at once
The attraction of a country in romance!
When Reason seemed the most to assert her rights.
I am not young but this, savour the moment, was bliss.

Bliss.

That’s it…

  1. nice jumper. At least it is better than the jumper i once seen andy newman wearing. It looked like what a weird uncle who is not left alone with the kiddies would wear.

  3. Yes, Andrew, you have helped elect an anti-semitic, terrorist supporting scumbag as leader of the Labour Party.

    And you’re proud of it.

    If that’s what you get your kicks from, fine. But Jeremy Corbyn won’t be Prime Minister, and you won’t live this down.

  4. Is he not a “fascist” then, too, Lamia? Come on: straight-talking honesty, if you will.

  5. Andrew – your credit with the Harry’s Place crowd is now zero. You must be devastated.😀

  6. If Lamia is looking for terrorist scumbags, Bibi Netanyahu is a perfect prototype.

  7. Oh what a surprise, another Israel-obsessed ‘progressive’.

    I am not Israeli, and Netanyahu is not, when I last looked, the leader of a British political party.

    Carry on with the Jew-spotting, boys and girls, but be re-assured, Corbyn sacked Ivan Lewis. You also have a Shadow Cabinet with an IRA supporter as Chancellor of the exchequer, which is going to go down a treat with the general public, and men in the top five positions which is, I suppose, progressive – if you are one of Jeremy’s ‘very good friends’ like Ibrahim Hewitt or Abou Jahjah.

    Truly tomorrow belongs to you. Bless your swastika’d little hearts.

  8. “anti-semitic, terrorist supporting” were your words (as was “progressive”).

    recently here i was denounced as a member of a sinister zionist cabal — see you *can* have it both ways.

  9. Is ‘Mr Jelly’ who I think is? I do hope so.

    Agree about the jumper, btw

  10. A ‘decent’ having a tantrum is really a most unedifying spectacle.

  11. Who knew Ivan Lewis was Jewish, and why is that relevant to Northern Ireland?

  12. Was he a Protestant or a Catholic Jew? That’s the important question in Northern Ireland…

  13. He won. And now he’s throwing it all away.

    He has signed his own death warrant: He has ‘told MPs who opposed him that he’d not seek changes to make it easier to de-select them’ Wake me up in 2050.’

    Does he really think the MPs can be bought off. They can smell his blood in the water now and will be circling.

    Does he have the right to throw away his victory like that – No. It’s not his. He was just the name (who would pick a dead flounder as their champion? that was there (it could have been Meacher/McDonnell etc) and he was simply the vessel for all the scorn for Miliband, Brown and Blair.

    Can he throw it away. Yes, most probably.

    48 hrs of excitement. Now another 35 years of cant.

    Wake me up in 2050.

  16. Thanks for that Jim.

    As you know John and I am old close comrades and I endorse his comments.

  17. Do you mind if we don’t wake you up? If you wake up by yourself: keep up the good work organising stuff in the PR business, glad to know your Trot apprenticeship is being put to good use.

  18. Is this spam?

    Where’s the big message about $500,000 dollars winnings to be transferred to my account?

  19. My previous message was aimed at Mr. Punch.
    I’m waiting for spam messages purporting to come from Corbyn:

    Dear Friend,

    My name is Jeremy Bernard Corbyn and I am the newly elected leader of the Labour Party of Great Britain, in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and I am writing to you today to ask you for your assistance.

    Since being elected the leader of my party, in an election which involved half a million people, an amazing exercise, in which almost 60% voted for me, over 40,192 people have joined Labour.

    This has brought significant funds into our party, which we need to fight the Tories, in parliament, but also emotionally, for the benefit of all, as well as providing the residents of Islinton with a new public “council privy”, on Upper Street. It will be free at the point of use, for RADAR key users.

    Unfortunately, due to an unfortunate incident beyond my control, many of these 40,192 members have not paid up by direct debit. This saves our party money. Also, under gift aid legislation, such monies could be used further to further our cause more effectively.

    Will you help me to achieve these moneys for the cause of Labour?

    Each direct debit saves the party five English pounds sterling per annum, which the banks are willing to provide to us on condition that we give them some numerical details, i.e. we need a simple number of informations from you, which will aid our party and our crusade to make Britain a nicer, more respectful place. In return for your support, I pledge to provide you with 50% of the moneys achieved. This is likely to be more than 40,192 English pounds.

    To arrange the transfer just click here

    YES, I DO WISH TO HELP JEREMY BERNARD CORBYN AND WILL FILL IN MY DIRECT DEBIT DETAILS, VISA/MASTERCARD AND THREE-DIGIT SECURITY NUMBER HERE

    The man with the very big money, but not the one with the supermarkets, will also repay you for your support in a number of shares in his FT-100 INDEX company, which sells stuff like Argos does but without the freemarket China-like multi queuing policy.

    If you have any questions for me, I will answer them politely, in a relaxed and non-irritated or angry manner. That’s what it is about. You will, and can, receive my small (and large) change.

    Click here

    YES, I DO WISH TO ACHIEVE MY SHARE OF THE IRONING-BOARD MAN’S COMPANIES, THE IRON BOARD COVER MAN WHO SELLS TAT IN PLACES OTHER THAN IN WOOLWORTHS NOW WOOLIES IS CLOSED, YOU KNOW THE CRAP WITH THE ANNOYING TV ADVERTS, YES, ITS ON FREEVIEW TOO

    JUST FILL IN YOUR CARD OR ACCOUNT DETAILS HERE, AND THOSE OF YOUR FRIENDS

    Yours in comradeship
    Viva!

    J.B. CORBYN

    MEMBER OF THE QUEEN’S PARLIAMENT, PROTECTOR OR SWANS AND DOLPHINS AND SINGER OF HER HYMN IN AN APPROPRIATE MANNER, HE’LL BE THERE, THINKING OF HIS MUM AND DAD;
    ALL ROUND UNLIKELY WOMEN’S SEX GOD, FROM GALLOWAY YOU MIGHT HAVE EXPECTED IT, BUT CORBS AND ABBOTT, BLIMEY
