Not a fan of the Philippines going socialist but I'm enjoying these a lot!(is everyone still enjoying these? I can start posting them on my own thread if it annoys people)
oh fuck it's brace.good for them. No, really, I think what they're doing is good. I'm all in on autonomy for the Kurdish people, and that's not just because I fought with the YPG, it's because I consider myself a decent human being. And Syria was pretty cringe, we all know it. Does anyone here actually have a question about my campaign?
"...I mean, Banksy, have you seen what Kinnock has been saying? We need Tony..."I arrived early for a talk with Chris and Tony Banks. Michael Foot let it be known today, or rather it was known as a result of his refusing nomination for the Party leadership, that there would be a leadership contest, and Tony, who has just been newly elected for Newham North West, offered to stand down so that I could have his seat and be eligible to contest the leadership. I wouldn’t hear of it. It would be manipulative and I wouldn’t contemplate such a thing. But I have never known anyone make such a generous offer before. - Tony Benn, End of an Era: Diaries 1980-1990

"...Who in the lord's name would allow him to do that? Does he think he can pull this off? It's not like he'd win the leadership anyway..."
"...upon criticism of undemocratic procedure, Banks has said that the people of Newham North West had voted for Benn's ideals..."

"And once again, the Left goes down in glorious defeat."
they're still the alliance at this point, to be fair. I stole the template from the bermondsey wikiboxNeil Kinnock; “I told you so!”
That being said, a continuation of the SDP doing well could possibly be turned around if Kinnock is able to deal with a rudderless Left quicker.
I should have said, the SDP inside the Alliance. Feels like the kind of scenario where an SDP/Alliance surge that kneecaps Tory and Labour seats in 87’ allows Labour to surge too and so we get a hung parliament and David Owen being David Owen.they're still the alliance at this point, to be fair.
