It's often claimed The Left own the internet, and certainly they do seem to be more than well represented among those willing to express an opinion -and God help anyone who doesn't agree with them. Remainers too, seemed to be everywhere online in the past 4 years. Indeed, if the internet was any guide, there would have been landslides for both Labour and Remain. But not so, and in real life the majorities lay with the other tribes, who mostly only chose to express their view in the quiet of the voting booths. So, mainly for my own interest, please state which side of the lines do you stand on, in this anonymous poll. Oh and, if you're a Labour voting Remainer, please let me know what it's like over there on the WRONG side of history. Thanks. :cool1:

I've voted Labour since that late 1960s when I became old enough to vote. I think the advent of Momentum and the pushing to the front of Corbyn (who was completely unsuitable to either lead the party or the country) combined with his hatred of Jews and love for terror groups compelled me to do something that I believed impossible i.e. vote Tory. I did that at the last election. I usually have a Vote Labour sticker in my window and when they knocked on my door before the last election and I told them I wouldn't be voting Labour they were speechless. I cited Momentum as my reason and they couldn't see what my problem was.

Hatred of Jews LMAO...
For the record I’m Jewish and it’s clear to me that just about all of the parties throwing accusations of anti-Sémitism don’t actually care about Jewish people and are instrumentalising it for their own purposes. The recent Labour leaks have shown that as have the complete ignoring of cases of anti-sémitism from elsewhere.
i agree that Corbyn didn’t have the qualities necessary to lead a government, after all he had never been in charge of anything all life but then again it always appears that Labour are judged against a much higher standard than the Tories.
And what is it about Momentum that makes them repellent to you? It just seems that they’re a catch-all term of revulsion for many people, a caricature when really they’re just an organisation founded to get younger people engaged in politics.

I'm 70 later this month and as long as I can remember (1950s) I've been appalled Jew-HATRED. I visit Israel every two years and support the state of Israel and pro-Israel charities and charities that oppose anti-Semitism.. Momentum are to blame for the past 5 wasted years for the Labour Party in forcing the election of a completely useless leader. Its possible that he will still have decision-making power from the back benches. BTW I don't know what LMAO means?

It's one of those abbreviations Lefties invented to use on the internet, to make (in their view) people feel small. It means Laughing My Arse Off. They have others: Rolling On the Floor Laughing (ROFL), Laughing Out Loud (LOL) , and the nuclear option, Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Arse Off (ROFLMAO). All designed to express their contempt and condescension towards your opinion and their innate superiority over YOU. They're generally just not very nice people.

Keep watching.... ...

24 hours gone, I donl;t think we're going to get any more votes on this:

So we have:

4 Tories
4 Labour
3 Others
3 Leavers
7 Remainers

I thought there'd be a lot more Labour than that, maybe they're just gobbier than Tories?
As for Remainers, well they were everywhere on social media and out on the streets and the online petitions, both before and after the referendum. Leavers? They did their talking with their pens and pencils in the voting booths, like true democrats. 5 elections and a referendum.

Remainers were gobbier because they were sore losers, like Krankie in Scotland. Anyway, the emptiest vessels make the most noise.

I think my skin is thick enough now not to be concerned by insults I can't even translate. Thanks B2TF ( which is another one I cant translate).
