I was always on the left of the party on most issues but Brexit (not so much the result, which I was disappointed by but accepted, but what came next) was the straw which broke the camel’s back.when did you stop aligning with the Tories, and why? just out of interest!
is he though? most of his actions (expelling Jeremy and Ken Loach for instance...) seem very much like the opposite of that. I think Labour's probably even less united internally than it was when he took over. his deputy is out here openly defying him (and rightfully so) at every turn!Starmer's doing the right thing (sorting out internal strife)
Good, "civility" is Boris's best friend. It prevents people from calling a spade a spade: a disgusting, duplicitous, corrupt, obese, opportunistic bigot who will stop at nothing to cling on to the trappings of power. We need to call the evil by its name.I think Rayner has twigged that the era of political blather and doublespeak is over. Better to take a stance and be criticised for it later than to waffle on endlessly like Keir did with Marr today and open yourself to the accusation that you don’t stand for anything at all.
The bit that really annoys me is that polling consistently shows broad support for trans rights among the British public - all of this is literally just them TRYING to make it a culture war issue, at the expense of people's lives.
Yeah, the thing that bothers me is that Javid hasn’t been caught out here. He has actively decided that bigotry is going to win him votes and to hell with trans people.

Thanks. I found this (from June 2020) which concerned me more, particularly in terms of securing their own vote, and winning over the people who don't see it as a primary concern.YouGov polling earlier this year: https://yougov.co.uk/topics/interna...national-survey-how-supportive-would-britons-
