Another brick in the wall !

The "red" wall that is -  as Labour lose the Hartlepool bi-election;  but Labour still don't get the reason why.   Since Brexit, the political landscape has polarised, with the liberal left in their Metropolitan ivory towers, who've usurped the Labour Party for decades, parachuting their ex-Uni careerists into white working class constituencies in the Provinces, and taking their vote for granted.  A measure of the schism is the fact that over 60% of LP members have polled in favour of re-joining the EU; add to this their obsession with political correctness and identity politics, and it's no wonder that the great unwashed have finally recognised them for what they now are.   Perhaps a modified version of the Pink Floyd hit would not be out of place - "We don't want your political correctness, we don't want your thought control. Your dark sarcasm in discussion,  Labour; leave the Plebs alone" .     😉

I think the move away from labour had more to do with the government being seen as doing a good job during the pandemic while labour seemed to do little more than criticise every move. Hopefully politicians of all sides will eventually realise that focusing on the issues in hand is more important that trying to discredit others by name calling.

That’s my opinion anyway.

Certain members of Labour just rub people up the wrong way and unfortunately they are the ones that make the media news.

Diane Abbott for instance ?

And when elections happen these figures are in the minds of the electorate not the actual candidate..

For example who was quoted this morning about the result?

""Diane Abbott, an ally of Sir Keir Starmers predecessor Jeremy Corbyn, tweeted: "Crushing defeat for Labour in Hartlepool. Not possible to blame Jeremy Corbyn for this result. Labour won the seat twice under his leadership.""

What has that to do with the reasons behind last nights defeat ?🙄?

Until the likes of Lammy and Abbot are consigned to the LibDums, with the rest of the PC freaks, and Labour starts dealing with fundemental issues, in a pragmatic way; they'll keep losing support among the Prols.  Meanwhile, if the Tories don't get some way with their "levelling up" agenda,  controlling immigration, reform our political system and control their appetite for corruption, they too will lose support.    :rolleyes:
