I don't think he is 'very similar' to Corbyn though, even if you ignore foreign policy and defence. Sure Miliband brought up some of the themes (many of which I think were valid) that Corbyn does as well but there is still a big departure, now that might be a lot to do with tone but honestly we have not much actual policy yet.

    They all said "Hallo," and felt awkward and unhappy suddenly, because it was a sort of good-bye they were saying, and they didn't want to think about it.

    This kind of narrative is one of the worst aspects of the whole thing for me. Just so so poor.

    Imagine if Miliband hadn't eaten that bacon sandwich
    once you think you're out they pull you back in

    I mean, before Harrisburg, it was highly improbable that what happened in Harrisburg could ever happen, but as soon as it did, the probability happened to go up to no less than 100 percent, so it was almost certain that it had happened.

    Furiously brushing up on my Japanese whilst simultaneously attempting to discover/invent Irish ancestry tbh.

    Desperately attempting to arrange a marriage with an EU citizen another possible avenue.

    Miliband specialised in dog whistles that were only heard by cats. The right saw straight through his empty rhetoric about "controls" on immigration and balanced budgets, but the left took it to heart.

    The Tories are spitting vile this week on immigration and supreme leader has hardly responded. You may think Corbyn is a wonderful man, but at times he really does not get the basics of politics.

    FMD, this country has lost the plot. Some truly vile stuff coming from the Tory conference; I'm waiting for the announcement that all foreign-born people have to wear a special badge. Genuinely losing the will to stay here by the day.

    Who'd have thought we'd have slid towards an hideously right-wing future after a vote where many people (not all) voted in a xenophobic manner. Unforeseeable......

    So the last 3 weeks the leaders and their cronies have preached to the converted and been clapped like crazy and the only one who didn't have me shaking my head was Farron.

    Have been tucked up all day and not seen any news - if I watch it at 10 will May's speech make me angry?

    or should I go to bed early?

    Cribb told me it made him angry to the point he was literally physically repulsed by it. Make of that what you will.
