In the weekend that gave Corbyn a chance to offer up praise to a dead Cuban dictator.

Now they face a Northern, coherent UKIP leader:

A new version of Essex man is born in the north

Meet Geordie Tory

 

https://www.economist.com/britain/2021/06/12/a-new-version-of-essex-man-is-born-in-the-north

The London-based commentariat has convinced itself that Geordie Tory is a left-behind loser who voted for a Brexit and Boris spit-roast to express his rage at globalisation. This is only a small part of the story. For the hidden truth about Geordie Tory is that he is actually doing rather well for himself. He did not go to university (thus avoiding a pile of student debt), but quickly found a job at a local firm, and his money goes much further in the north than it would in the south. He lives in a four-bedroomed semi-detached, has a couple of cars in the drive and can rely on two sets of grandparents to chip in with child care. He zips to work or Asda in a few minutes, thinks the local school is doing an acceptable job and looks forward to his next holiday in Florida, providing the government can stop faffing about. He pities his school friends who went to university, moved down south and now either live in a crowded flat or (before the covid-19 pandemic) spent a couple of hours a day on a packed train.

...

Geordie Tory has long been attracted by the Tory party’s pro-business, low-tax philosophy, but continued to vote Labour out of habit. Two things gave him permission to switch: Brexit and Jeremy Corbyn. Whether he voted for Brexit or not he was unhappy with attempts to overturn “the people’s will”. And the north-east is to Britain what the south is to America. It has provided the country with soldiers, sailors and airmen in numbers far exceeding its share of the population, and its landscape is littered with stone memorials to the fallen (South Shields lost a higher proportion of its citizens in the second world war than any other town). Geordie Tory was damned if he was going to vote for a man who mistook valour for warmongering and made excuses for the ira.

Unfortunately, that fat fuk is currently teflon coated, because people of your ilk have brainwashed and terrified the populace into thinking CCPV is the black death. And going back further exalting compliance to violent thugs as the highest possible virtue.

 

There is no beating Boris on an even playing field now. The last chance Labour had was 2019 by going all in on Brexit. You failed, now this is happening.

People of my ilk? Exalting compliance?

Last time I looked Bozo was in charge and setting the lockdown t's and c's. Isn't that the chap you voted for?
