    Original story

    This split has been rumoured for some time as the party is being infiltrated by the extreme left.

    History is much like an Endless Waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever.

  • Problem is, you have the top people in the Labour leadership who support Hamas, Hezbollah and the IRA who have of course have bombed us for decades. On top of that, if you were to be kind, they at least have some warm cuddly feelings towards Russia. If it did come to nuclear war, they wouldn't push the button. Would be quite happy to see us obliterated, but not the enemy?

    The flip side is, Corbyn has brought front and centre the issues of mental health, social care and caring for the vulnerable and he is genuine, rather than being obsessed with media presentation unlike a certain other former Labour leader. But it was Blair, despite Iraq, that won three elections. You would think Labour would've learnt what works and what doesn't by now.

    Michael Foot was an articulate, polite and an absolutely gentleman. He was also a complete fruit cake and no one would ever have voted him to become prime minster. Same with Neil Kinnock, although he wasn't articulate or polite, but he did all the hard work at the time and got rid of all the lunatic fringe of the Labour party (who have now returned in the form of momentum) and took on the unions.

    The only reason Labour would split is, if, once they lose the election and I think it's a sure fire bet they will, but Corbyn remains as leader. Then that would be the end of Labour as we know it. Even Blair has told his supporters to go to the lib dems.
