Always remember him for THAT fight scene. Not sure if it's the longest ever, but it can't be far off.

I'm not really sure the point you're trying to make with the poster. But without phase 1, phase 3 will never happen. Going back to my original point, Corbyn makes phase 1 less likely.

There are many aspects to phase 2. As I think we agree though, we won't just walk from phase 1 to phase 3.

I'm not asking for a split of the left - I'm asking for a split of the left and right. The trade union link would be retained (wrongly imo - why do we need that link?).

 

The natural position of the Labour Party left wing may be opposition to independence, but that is not the case for many (most?) of their ex-members. Most former Labour members I know left the party due to the Iraq war. Most support independence.

destroying all opposition to [the SNP]

 

 

I have no interest in destroying the Labour Party. I think a one-party state is a dangerous thing (look what Labour did to us in the decades they ran a one-party state). I'm merely arguing that voting for a left-wing leader weakens the argument for independence, and therefore we shouldn't vote for him. We should be looking to weaken the Labour Party in the short term, forcing a split whereby Scotland gets a left wing Labour Party that supports independence and policies that reflect what members, supporters and ex-supporters in Scotland are crying out for. 

 

I'm sure your superior intellect will have a smart answer as to why I'm completely deluded and only your path is the right one, but I've been down the Duncan Hothersall route (arguing with someone who's never wrong) before and have no intention of going down it again.
