It's crazy that The Labour Party having a left wing candidate for leadership is causing such a media hoo-ha! I'm not sure I recall any consternation with any Tories being "too right wing".

The political consensus has moved so far to the right of where it was in the 70s that any hint of even vaguely left policy is viewed as nothing short of revolutionary Bolshevism. You only have to look at the way the media portrayed "Red" Ed.

Thatcher won, for the foreseeable future anyway.

Even more reason why Labour should be a party of the left and leave off with this gutless turditure of social democracy. It's not about winning (at least not until the monetarist experiment blows another gasket), it is about proclaiming a clear, credible alternative that doesn't involve genuflecting to the City of London. Stop chasing popularity, stand ground on the left and let people come to you as the right are discredited.

I am watching Michael Fallon's statement to the HofC about Tunisia/IS and the intention to start bombing Syria - the Tunisian assailant/s were trained in er, Libya, and how did that country degenerate into the state it is now? - and Corbyn has just stood up to warn of the danger of mission creep. Fallon's said he'll reflect on that, in an 'I understand what you're saying (but)' sort of way.. So few MP's there, too....

Right now. Plenty of applause. Missed most of it as only just got in from work, will watch repeat. Expect on iPlayer too.

I watched it on iplayer - the issues discussed remain as depressing as ever. Jeremy Corbyn was measured, always speaking with integrity, he didn't veer from Socialist principles. Sadly though, Jeremy Hunt had the more forceful personality and talked for the longest time. It was a comparatively quiet discussion with no shouting from the panel or audience. I liked Shappi Khorsandi a lot - especially her comments about asking patients to pay for missed appointments.
There was a female GP in the audience who managed to effectively express the disillusion of general practitioners in England - apparently many of them are leaving for New Zealand. I didn't know that.
