YP Comment: Labour throws in the towel. Party’s admission of defeat

 AS IF the Labour Party did not already have woes enough in fighting the general election, the extraordinary and damaging intervention by its deputy leader, Tom Watson, can only make its already invidious task even more difficult.

To admit that his party has little chance of forming the next Government, as he appeared to at the weekend, is surely unprecedented in modern British electoral history and amounts to throwing in the towel with more than three weeks to go until polling day.

    • Because Watson faces reality and accepts the Labour party will lose this GE by a huge margin you resort to childish comments?
      Are you really a typical Labour supporter? If you are then God help us all.


  1. At least Tom Watson is not specious like the rest pretending they can win when clearly they cannot. And praise be that this is indeed the case, so far every key shadow minister interviewed has had the car crash Diane Abbott moment. Not one of them has a clue or a handle on numbers see interviews with Andy Mcdonald and John McDonell, add this to the barely sentient Angela Rayner and Rebecca Long-Bailey and what an untalented crew we would have dumped upon us led by a leader with as much intellectual capability as a bowl of soup, and that is insulting to the soup.


  2. Tom Watson is the voice of sanity in the discredited Labour party and it should not be a surprise he’s woken up and smelled the coffee.
    Abbott’s car crash interview, McDonnell’s inept performance this morning on R4,Thornberry’s cringeworthy mauling on C4 and Long-Bailey’s stumbling and mumbling are proof positive the Shadow Cabinet’s so called ‘Top Team’ have no knowledge and no ideas about basic governance, and to think we’ve got another 3 weeks of this rubbish.
