Yeah, but David Mellor was a *major babe magnet* back in the day, right?

Personally I'd rather endorse John McDonnell's four decades of commitment to working-class struggle than Nigel Farage's four decades of fixation with Enoch Powell, Margaret Thatcher and Donald Trump. But that's just me.

Nigel Farage is more concerned with gravy trains than milkshakes

Tell you what Lord Sugar, we'll give you back the £200,000 you gave Tony Blair, rescind your peerage, and thereafter you just STFU. Deal?

Amazing how Theresa May will go to desperate lengths to save her own job, but not lift a finger to save jobs at Honda or British Steel

They call it British Steel: merged with a Dutch company, bought by Indian billionaires and then systematically asset stripped by two French private equity guys

From Capita to British Steel, the energy Big Six, water companies and the railway franchises, the message is the same, time after time: private enterprise cannot and will not operate these vital services in the public interest, it is time they came back into social ownership

Don't be fooled by all this talk about Blue Collar Conservatism. I've just checked the records, and it turns out that Jacob Rees-Mogg voted against enfranchising the working class in 1867.

Boris Johnson - self-confessed former cocaine and cannabis user - calling for tougher sentencing for drug dealers in the Telegraph today. Sometimes hypocrisy stinks worse than low-grade skunk.

Labour would be 20 points ahead in the polls under centrist leadership. The success of Change UK is proof of that.

Joan Ryan consistently voted for the Iraq War. Those hands have blood on them.

A former MP has quit the Labour Party because the 'Corbyn cult' doesn't allow criticism of the leadership. Given the sheer volume of criticism of the leadership I see on Twitter and hear on telly and radio, that's quite a claim.

Personally I'm fine with a Labour Party funded by its members and by trade unions, not formula one bosses, Indian steel tycoons, billionaire authors, manufacturers of dodgy computers, pornographers and BAE

Labour Party members who share material from openly neo-Nazi websites should not be allowed to become Labour councillors. Not in any circumstances, ever.

The Economist calls it 'Corbyn-proofing'; the rest of us call it tax dodging

The rich are so patriotic that they'd do anything for Britain, except pay taxes here

Tim Farron (an MP in the 2010-15 government that imposed austerity on Britain) accuses Jeremy Corbyn (one of the few MPs who opposed austerity at that time) of 'enabling austerity'. This Tweet must rank as a classic of its kind.

RIP Karol Modzelewski, brave socialist dissident under successive Polish governments, Stalinist and neoliberal alike
