Where did it all go wrong for Jeremy Corbyn and Labour?

  • It could hardly have been a worse night for Labour - as one by one, that so-called 'red wall' of rock solid heartlands crumbled into dust. (Subscribe: bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe)
    And now, after the worst result for the party in living memory, and in this radically different political landscape, the political recriminations have already begun.

    Corbyn didn't stand a chance, he was not supposed to win and the Blairites stabbed him in the back every chance they got. You can't move forward when you're always watching your back.

    As Thatcher said - NEW LABOUR was her best achievement.

    Now people have a choice of Tory red or blue. which is no choice at all.

    Well done

    Lol that has to be the most ludicrously stupid question ever asked .It all went wrong when a vile far left radical was voted as their leader NOT by Labour MPs (84% voted against him) but by the far left commie unions and even further left Momentum.The result of that of course was Labours worst defeat in 85 years.I am a Tory supporter and always have been but I would be happier a credible opposition to keep us on our toes.Sadly we havent had one since Blair left the party and the lunatic Brown took over.That was the beginning of the end .Corbyn finished them off.

    Electoralism, Corbynism and the zombie Labour Party are all dead. If only someone had told you that electoralism was a waste of time and energy. What the working class needs is not Labour fire-blanketting any real threat to capitalism, we need a genuine anti-capitalist, grassroots movement to confront capitalism and smash it from the outside. We cannot afford to wait another 5-10 years for a capitalist Labour government to get elected, as if that's going to happen!

    labour is infested with the Muslim league. Labour party definition "Islamophobia" is "an invented term mainly designed to shut down any debate , critical discussion about Islam"

    I used to think Bernie had a better chance at beating Trump than Biden, but after watching this I'm not so sure. Sounds like exactly what older dems would say if Bernie got the nomination.
    Brexit and illegal immigration seem to be the UK and American version of the same issue. You can't push for a stronger welfare state while simultaneously saying anyone who pops into your country can benefit from such a policy. I don't even think Bernie truly believes this, but it's just an emotional issue pushed by maybe 25% of voters who yell the loudest. America needs some of the policies Bernie pushes like a public option for healthcare and federal paid leave, but as long as he caves to the emotional and totally batshit rhetoric of people who are pro-open borders he's screwed.

    Hilarious how Labour say "it was Brexit that destroyed us". Labour claim to be politicians. Brexit was a political puzzle (not some unstoppable cosmic force). They fail to grasp the fact that it was THEIR CHOICES surrounding Brexit that destroyed them. They dug their own grave here. Along with every other spiteful, nasty, fascist left policy that they were pushing (SHOVING) in people's faces, they deserved to lose badly.
    "Government in waiting". Don't make me laugh. They are worth less than spit.

    I must admit Anna Soubry has been the most honest out of all the Corbynites! But she should have spoken up earlier in the run up to the election . It's no good moaning after the horse has bolted! But look at RLB, who gave 10/10 for Corbyn, she still can't understand why Labour lost!! Boris is definitely in for the long haul with these clowns still on the front bench! As for Burgon....words fail me! He actually says that he has to focus on: "Why we lost? How we lost?!" Can he not see that from here?! lol.

    Where did it all go wrong? Let's see. A leader at the dispatch box with those behind him throwing knives at his back. A media including channel 4 and the BBC buying into the anti semitism row without properly vetting the claims. Corbyn lowering his natural european scepticism and accepting the sitting on the fence party choice. And a party that deserted the working class in favour of middle class pro euro, pro identity politics agendas

Jezz grow a couple you fucked up big time your ideas were not of the comonworking man you took, the labour party in to the desert and left it there. But i dont just blame you the so called labour politicians you had around you were as bad. You kept saying i want a general election but never asked for it. Thats becouse you were not sureof yourself, so how did you think the labour votes would vote for you. It is know 2020 and you still will not go.

    Comrade Commissar Corbyn and his Momentum comrades wanted to turn the clock back to the dark miserable days of Arthur Scargill and Michael Foot. It is now 48 days since the election and if Commissar Corbyn had won he would by now have handed over the Falkland islanders to the Argentinians, started negotiations to sell our entire navy to India and Pakistan, turned Sandhurst college and Buckingham Palace over to the homeless, started to make all our military personnel redundant, close down Faslane nuclear submarine base and all our nuclear submarines and trident missiles, shut off funds to the Royal Family and start to make plans to integrate and merge our great nation into the Russian empire. This man is an evil terrorist supporter and hates everything that will take our nation forward to a wonderful bright future. He supports the Iranian regime which is supporting wars and destruction all over the Middle East and supplying missiles to the houtti rebels in the Yemen where 100,000 children have already been killed. He is an evil two faced dangerous man and should not be allowed anywhere near the keys of government.

    Since he was a teenager Corbyn always been firm and unchanging in his politics, cleaved only to those who agree with him and regarded disagreement and electoral rejection with contempt. The St Jeremy veneer has only ever thinly disguised a peevish, supercilious arrogant man. Labour seriously needs to ask itself the Hattersley question. When touring the heartlands after a brutal Kinnock defeat an activist asked him: what's wrong with them? He replied: we should be asking what's wrong with us. Corbyn has never been able to do that, and that's a large part of the problem. Politics may be driven by convictions, but it's ultimately (per Bismarck) the art of the possible. it's a trade, not a craft.

    Labour lost because Corbyn was inept, too far to the left in terms of politics and failed to keep members of his party from blurting out racist remarks plus he didn't have a clear plan to deal with Brexit and other things.

    He was up against the bumbling Boris Johnson whose been described as the British version of Trump and Corbyn couldn't beat him. Anyone who can't beat someone like that in an election shouldn't be leader of a political party, Corbyn should resign as leader of the Labour party as they'll never win with him in charge.
