Oldham by-election is a two-horse race… between Ukip and a Labour moderate

Sun columnist Rod Liddle visits Oldham, the rock-solid Labour seat, where voters are ditching Corbyn’s barmy army in favour of a Ukip dark horse.

The Sun. Wednesday December 2.12.15.

So you could say that whatever happens in Oldham tomorrow, it’s sorta lose/lose for poor old Labour.

Jeremy Corbyn hails ‘vote of confidence’ after Labour win Oldham byelection

Jim McMahon defeats Ukip challenge with increased share of vote in first poll test of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour leadership.

No Galloway in the Poll at all.

  1. Is it really necessary to book in advance for Galloway’s little “party”? Surely they’ll be dragging people in of the streets to fill them room.

  2. Unlimited tea and coffee – what a drink list – as well!

  3. a spectre is haunting the labour party, the spectre of Galloway.
    Galloway is a real man, unlike Hilary Benn ( is he a transexual? why does he have a female name?).
    Galloway, all the way.
    If you like Corbyn, then you should like Galloway.

  4. Meanwhile, from Jezzer’s comrades in STWC:

    “Benn does not even seem to realize that the jihadist movement that ultimately spawned Daesh is far closer to the spirit of internationalism and solidarity that drove the International Brigades than Cameron’s bombing campaign – except that the international jihad takes the form of solidarity with oppressed Muslims, rather than the working class or the socialist revolution.”

    A new low for the ‘anti-war’ left. How do they keep managing to go even deeper into the mire? And how long will Jezzer’s supporters keep overlooking this stuff or keep dismissing it as ‘a smear’?


    How on earth can you reconcile your continued support for Corbyn with his and his STWC comrades’ apologism for genocidal ISIS scumbags?

    Oh yeah. You’re all against ‘austerity’. Yeah. shame about the mass graves of Yazidi women, but at least it was at the hands of internationalists showing solidarity for oppressed Muslims, so ISIS are not so bad, really. Not as bad as the Tories, eh? 🙂 Eh? Nudge, nudge. Eh?

    You Corbynites ought to be ashamed of yourselves. Attlee and co would utterly despise you.

  5. @Lamia, this stuff ain’t working. The vast majority of British people do not obsess over STWC statements.
