    Yeah, I think Biden is a good example, it would be progress to move the dial away anywhere from where it is now, agreed. It also needs to be a beginning of a further shift though! Hopefully anyway.

    Would be fun to watch though.

    Yes, I read something recently by Dominic Grieve. Tore Boris to pieces, then pledged undying support to the current leadership at the end, lol.

    The post-Blair, centre ground style seems so flabby and financially self-interested, I'm personally not sure there is a need for a party that is just slightly less tory, guys like Owen Smith etc. It feels quite outdated. The Corbyn movement at least had energy and a freshness for a while.

    Labour hasn't really had a purpose since Blair if we treat the Corbyn/Momentum thing as something separate. Where do you go when 'New Labour' becomes the past, it's dead in the water. The Conservatives at least have moved to contemporary techniques of huge headline bullshit promises. They know no-one cares if they don't deliver. We are now in the time where a sensible, costed-out manifesto to help everyone in society is defeated by Boris in a hard hat, driving a JCB through a wall with 'get it done' written on it [or whatever it was].

    I would have liked to see Jess Phillips as a counter to Boris, sure most will laugh at that, but it could have been interesting in my opinion, maybe Nandy is the safer version of that. Starmer seems like the person before the person who will have any success. I think he will struggle to convey a human side that isn't a product of a PR campaign, he's probably a nice bloke, but it is a different matter to get that across to the public. He gets lost in the detail too much so far.

    I LOVE riding this bike.

    That's all that matters really.
    Is this thread really coming up to 4 years old?
