Before you joined the site LadyVera, Corbyn was the subject of much venom here, along with anyone who supported him.

I try to have polite presentation of facts, but unfortunately, some only have the skills to mock the denigrate the views of others, often it seems, without reading the evidence.

In my personal opinion, I'd like to give Starmer a chance. He is who Labour has, who was voted in, and already the factions have started to seek out any skeleton in the cupboard and sadly, often just believing journalists who create attractive headlines but with little substance.

I also have a tendency to support an underdog, or someone who becomes an underdog, because they often have a light hiding under a bushel somewhere and again, in opinion, rather than ganging up and mocking contributors with a different view, what makes a good conversation is having different views and being grown up enough to look at all different perspectives.

I couldn't agree more JustLyn. It is the differing opinions and ideas which make the forum worthwhile and it's good to see a new poster as we don't get many of those. If only the trolls could learn how to present the facts in a polite manner the forum would be a better place.

"Why does Fosy remind me of a little dog woofing insignificantly and doesn't even know what he's barking at? etc.."

ah, so you do read my posts j/l, even if "offline" , bless you...

"not even his own invention"
brian never called himself the messiah, it was his followers and they treated him as such...

i like the little dog analogie,i like dogs...but i am a well trained dog that is not a back slapping, licker of left wing socialist arses.

now dont forget j/l to keep a copy of my post so that in the future you can prove what i said, and then people will know its not a figment of your over worked imagination...unlike last time.

ttfn !

"Why are we defending Corbyn, a past leader, rather than defending Starmer the present leader?"

Maybe the fact you said "It's very obvious that the Tories were frightened of Corbyn and perhaps they still are" has something to do with it?...

I rest my case this time on the above post and his truly disgusting comments.

I see he has started up again, real trolling with such language and mind.

But Wondie said that Bella had hairballs?

I had a cat called Bella, it was long haired and used to get hairballs.

Wondie is psychic?

Oh JL, I think you mean Fosy?

He says he is ok with being a little dog.
But does not use his tongue much.

Sorted!!

Wrong as usual Fosy.
After your vile posts late last year, mocking my concern over my children's health assessments, I blocked you.

Why would I bother to seek your posts out offline when blocked someone?

I thought you might be more pleasant but clearly not.

Hierophant.

I stated I had unblocked him so hence I can see his posts but I don't know why I bothered.

PUTTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT.
its time to call it for what it is.
members may be aware that there is a problem between justlyn and myself that has been going on now for well over a year, which centres around me " mocking my concern over my childrens health assessments", it was originally her sons situation i was supposed to have been unkind about [but now she has broadened it out to "children"]...shes very good at playing semantics and fudging issues when she has no answers.
 
if you are going to make accusations about people then you should have relevant evidence/proof, which by justlyns own admission she doesnt have, the reason being is because i was never disrespectful to her [sons] childrens predicament.
  
there are other discrepancies in her latest postings about me,eg, " vile posts late last year"...there were no posts between us late last year [nov/dec 19?], indeed i have been defending my position over this matter since approx. this time last year, as has another member who she has "got it in for".
"i stated i had unblocked him"...i have twice asked her for evidence of this, both on the thread and by PM...and nothing, because yet again its a figment of her imagination.

its clear that justlyn cannot, will not, stop these irrational accusations, and so to that end i will no longer pussyfoot around her and state that she is a SLANDEROUS LIAR.i reserve the right to defend myself in no uncertain terms every time she posts untruths about me.

i will probably get slated for this post, but before anyone does, just ask yourself how long would you put up with false accusations on a public forum ? how long would you put up with character assassination on a public forum ?

i state again, i have NEVER, EVER,dissed her children's predicament.

Going off the topic slightly, I'm not sure I like the adverts appearing in the middle of posts. Mind you, I suppose we could start using them to describe the length of posts. I noticed that Fosy's post was a one adverter whilst Maglorian's was a full 3 adverter!

No slating! I think other members have read many of the posts and have formed their opinions from what has been written.

But Hotty, we're not allowed to make up our own minds about a person or a situation from what they've written because we have to have an agenda, a cunning plan to subvert things that "normal" people think and believe. We're not allowed to start a thread on something we care about without being pounced on, denounced and having bile poured over us. It dosen't matter who you are or what you genuinely think, feel or believe, someone will twist it to suit their own agenda which is that everyone has an agenda, its all starting to resemble witch hunts and I wonder how long it will be before there are calls for some to be burnt at the stake for having the wrong agenda or no agenda.

I didn't favour Starmer for leader of Labour, but so far he is giving a credible performance. In the current circumstances there is plenty to challenge. Charging NHS workers from overseas to use the NHS being particularly horrible. Glad a u turn has been achieved at least on this point.

I have commented before on PMQs but I watched it again tonight in case I had missed anything.
Boris Johnson was his usual self. He sounds a bit bumbling but makes his points and remains unruffled. He did catch Starmer on the hop and it was obvious Starmer was not fully prepared.

I didn't read this thread before now, but I wish I had. Some witty comments made me giggle.
