Which Labour leader are you?

Post by Ivan on Thu Sep 08, 2016 8:34 am

Labour has had a lot of very different leaders. Have you ever wondered which one you are? Take the test and maybe share your result with the rest of us:-

(Apparently, I'm George Lansbury, grandfather of the actress Angela Lansbury. I must read up about him!)

That quiz resulted in Lansbury for me too, but I can identify with Harold Wilson: shrewd, calculating, plausible and manipulative.  Enfeebled mind in retirement....and there was something else I was going to add.  Can I get back to you?

The voting record of a party member nust be an important factor in any contest for Leadership of the party, so what would you think about this ....?

Consistently opposed South-African apartheid and supported (The "Terrorist") Nelson Mandela.
In 1993 opposed Blair's jettison of previous party-commitment on disarmament.
In March 2003 voted against Blair's proposal to invade Iraq.
Opposed the introduction of ID cards for British citizens
Resisted proposals for extended detention
Supported gender equality and equal pay rights
Fought for worker-protection and Trade Union rights
Spoke out frequently against racism
Campaigned against tax breaks for the very wealthy
Opposed the Bedroom Tax and the recent Welfare Reform Bill
Never supported the PFI which now cripples Hospitals and Schools
In march 2011 voted against Cameron's intention to bomb Libya.

The full above record applies only to two people. (John McDonnell is one of them.)

The other  one is that nasty anti-Semitic, racist anti-women Jeremy Corbyn - that terrorist sympathiser and traitor to his country.

As all British political commentators are now apparently required to describe Mr Corbyn, by law, adding the adjective "unelectable" at least once in every paragraph.
