Is it dirty tricks, are they determined to remain unelectable?

Couldn't judge at this point as "hacking" is an inflammatory and suggestive choice of words much different to "accessing" a database someone may have legal access to.

Until recently, I had legal access to patients' health data but I would not have been hacking it, even if I naively or stupidly broke confidentiality.

I'd be surprised if Keir Starmer himself would authorise and jeopardise any election campaign but someone infiltrating their team with another agenda might.

The accusations are not from his own team?

It points to the far left panicking that Corbyn clone Long-Bailey might not be a favourite with Labour voters. Having lost the election because the ordinary Labour voter hated the idea of a far left elite ruling the country they have turned a blind eye to reason and keep pushing the same old communist doctrine.

Do you have the source Hermit? I don't read tabloids, I tend to feel dirty after lowering myself to their sensationalism.

It's quite scary how obsessed the hard left are and how the will stop at nothing to get their way. Keir Starmer is mourning the loss of his mother-in-law and yet that matters not one jot to them.
Interestingly, RLB is as unpopular with "normal" voters as Corbyn, anyone notice a pattern?
The hilarious fact is there's another 6 or 7 weeks of this nonsense before we know who has won...
NotHermit  Male  Derbyshire 9-Feb-2020 21:55 Message #4770239
Yes, the lunatics want to do the same thing again.

But expect a different result?

Attempt 1, Starmer should stand aside (diversity).
Attempt 2, A smear campaign.

Anyone know what happens next?

RLB is apparently more unpopular than Emily Thornberry with voters.

From what I read both sides seem to be using slightly dubious means to gain access to members, the next GE is a long time away and unless whoevers the next leader does something disasterous in the meantime its long enough for most people to forget how they became leader. I think a lot of people think RLB has an unfair advantage because she has access to Momentums data base and the others don't.

I find it heartening to see some odious right wing cheerleaders attempting to put down Rebecca so soon. That alone ensures me she is the better choice. Momentum activism verses Corporate greed control. Only a fool with no morals would side with greed.

"odious right wing cheerleaders"?

I say, that's a bit strong old boy.....

NoSaint  Female  Devon 10-Feb-2020 11:53 Message #4770281
Haha. He’s getting his knickers in a twist.
NotHermit  Male  Derbyshire 10-Feb-2020 19:49 Message #4770320

So nothing was wrong for Labour at the last election?

If you are communist, why do you not join that communist party?
