      I actually think Boris does say some incredibly stupid things from time to time but I do NOT think he is racist or homophobic, he has however worked as a journalist most of his life and was known for his colourful use of language which on occasion was completely inappropriate and which he has apologised for.

      It's not colourful language, it's casual racism!!

      Any link to that "fact" about Thatcher, honestly don't know about this.

      Using google really isn't particularly difficult, you should try

      As far as I know the Jewish population in this country do not have the same issue with Boris as they do with Corbyn, ask yourself why that is, perhaps just perhaps its not just a smear campaign against Corbyn. A few days before the election I was talking to a few Jewish friends who were genuinely terrified at the prospect of Corbyn gaining power, they were also bitterly disappointed that the EHRC report had not been published before the election, by all accounts it paints a damning picture of a once proud party!

      You keep overplaying the Anti semitism card, it’s going to loose its meaning..

      They also transformed the UK electorate and ensured the Conservative party stormed to victory to form a strong Government.

      Classic Corbyn.

      I prefer it when Labour transforms the country as opposed to the party itself but hey ho... each to their own.

      I mean, who would deny this?

      I’m still struggling with the result to be honest...

      Labour never lost on its policies but Brexit.. its a shame Corbyn listened to the right & Blairites in the party to hold a 2nd referendum...

      Just listened to the Queen speech.. not confident going forward..

      If they had gone all out for Brexit then they'd not only have succeeded in wrecking their core vote in their working class heartlands but also that of their liberal/metropolitan urban centres.

      Labour backing and proposing their own version of this right wing project would have been awful and somewhat humiliating for Corbyn. Attempts to appease it were pitiful. That they even attempted to do it and not even bothering to expose the suicidal nature of it means that Corbyn will be seen in history as an enabler of this grave constitutional error.

      At the end of the day, Labour are and always have been an internationalist organisation. Past Labour governments input into the EU were befitting of a party that understood it's responsibility not just to Britain but Europe and were a refreshing change to the arch imperialist, we stand alone, attitudes still found to this day in the right. Those in Labour who stood by and continued to campaign for Britain's place in the EU understood those values better than the rest.
