So why the rumpus?
:rolleyes: It's like Groundhog Day round here. For all the same reasons we've been arguing about for the last four years, obvs - it's a proxy conflict for the actual one that the Labour right doesn't want to have because it will lose. As @Profpointy says above, it would be refreshing if those actually creating the mahoosive rumpus were expected to provide the evidence that there is a problem specific to Labour, because they have come up with nothing of substance to date.

I'm trying to keep-up at the back, honest....

From the Guardian today.

9 MPs resigned
3 Peers resigned
Protests in the streets from minority groups.
Hundreds of staff write to complain
67 Peers publicly speak out
Under investigation by the Equality & Human Rights Commission.
Labour now at an historic low with public support at just 18%
Corbyn now the most unpopular Labour leader ever and the worst rated opposition leader.

Not doing too well is he?

Bunch of unelected toffs, millionaires and corporate stooges wildly hostile to democratic movement shock.

  • A leading Labour peer, Lord Levy, has apologised after admitting failing to register three private interests connecting him to a billionaire Russian businessman.

  • Fifteen peers are working for or advising foreign governments, including a former coalition government cabinet minister and a former chief of defence staff.

  • Thirty-eight peers indicated they provide public affairs or strategic advice, an area of particular sensitivity because such work can easily stray into lobbying.

  • Eighty-three peers have declared an interest in finance or banking, with HSBC, Santander and Royal Bank of Scotland among those to have provided paid roles as directors or paid advisers to peers.

  • Twenty-seven have declared an interest in energy firms, with the same number reporting an interest in companies working in the defence or security sectors.

Where’s Shami Chakrabati in all this? Oh, that was 2016, seems only yesterday....
3 years down the line following her report, Labour are in a worst position!
Was the report useless or was nothing learned?

It didn't tell the right story.

I find it laughable that Corbyn, the leader of the currently most dysfunctional and inept party of the day, in the most inept and dysfunctional mother of all ELECTED parliaments, dares to dabble with an archaic UNELECTED chamber which on the whole seems to have been doing a generally OK Job in these stupid times. I think Corbyn needs to get his own house in order first.

ain't that the truth.
I guess that'll be why LFI have finally decided to go openly after Al Jazeera, who exposed their mendacity in an undercover documentary. Basically their line is 'dont believe the evidence of your own eyes - you can't trust these Arabs'. Ofcom disagrees. LFI is proper rattled and looking desperate. I reckon Corbyn should do an Ilhan Omar on them and their Trumpist attacks.
