Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself!

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 17:19:11 +0100

Hello everyone.. I have recently returned to the UK after almost 50 years of living in Australia and New Zealand. I was born in Guys Hospital and went to Alma School and then Deptford Park. It's good to be home. I currently live in West Sussex but have been back to Bermondsey a few times in the last few months. Surprised at how much still looks the same in some ways but different in others. Most notably Storks Rd being chopped in half. The half where my Grandparents lived gone altogether. The old Concorde pub is now apartments and the biscuit factory has gone.
Does anyone on this site recall a small electrical repair shop near the Russell Scott buildings called Soapy Jacks? Jack Fersht was the owner.

Hello everyone,
I've been lurking this forum for quite some time now and now I've finally decided that I will start posting something. I hope that it will be fun. :)

best,

mayor of London

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 09:18:34 +0100

SK is once more pontificating about the national labour party and appearing to lay into Jeremy Corbyn.. So much for his vacuous speeches pre and post his election as mayor then. Means nothing does it. He is on probation himself and he confuse the privilege bestowed by his office with interfering in the national leadership issue

He should settle down and show London what a wonderful person he is in his eyes obviously at least

Skills should and must refrain as we can all see that he wants to return new labour people asap

JC has been elected on a massive party vote whatever careerist MPs including Hilary Benn etc might opine.

Hi edd54,
Seems interesting. Not sure you can leave a review on Amazon if you do not buy it from it though...

SandyPandy,
On Eurostar you can collect points and I manage to get the odfd free return from time to time (although they have now reduced the points you earn, so it's getting harder). Otherwise, there is still Interail, a cheap way to go around Europe, they even have prices for seniors ...http://www.interrail.eu/interrail-passes/global-pass

I can do this, I write lots of reviews and I'm the kind of person who tries to say at least one nice thing even when it's rubbish (because nothing is all good or all bad, even the book I read where the writer kept saying drug instead of drag....she drugged herself up the beach. I have no tolerance for 'of' instead of 'have' though).

nice to hear you are well, bike ride sounds good - as long as it is around my lovely SE1, can someome please move this to chatter



Re: What has happened to Zoe

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 15:49:24 +0100

I want to say that reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated, but I'm a bit too superstitious. Of course James would have reported on it, nothing goes in SE1 that he doesn't know about!

I'm still here, just been busy. Are you missing my pearls of wisdom or just want to take me up on that bike ride offer? We should have had an SE1 contingent to prudential ride London.

Anyway, this should be in the chatter section. I think I'm important but I'm pretty sure I'm not newsworthy.....

I would like to know if anyone has any pictures of the houses in Falmouth road, I remember that ours backed onto Dickens square.

How careless of Kinnock to admit to electoral fraud in front of a passing political opponent.



Re: Hilary Benn

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:57:18 +0100

Also from memory so called electoral college was right-wing union Kinnock set-up whereas previously Tony almost won against Healey. :- I was at that conference and overheard Kinnock say to Jim Callaghan and a small group "don't worry it's in the bag for Dennis! " some skullduggery was afoot.. what a traitor to the Labour cause and movement. And still it persists today with the new media creation.. seen on Sky tv this morning Owen Smith!



Re: Hilary Benn

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:21:16 +0100

Kinnock scored because pretended to be a friends of disadvantaged etc but could not practically nor did he have serous intention he climbed the greasy pole and ladder then kicked it away Blair of course never mentioned the word socialism and courted by the establishment tho now possibly suffering to a degree what goes around comes around



Re: Hilary Benn

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 20:06:02 +0100

Well you say that but when push came to shove the votes heavily favoured Kinnock over Benn. You may well prefer Benn's politics but it's ahistorical to claim they have been in the ascendency in the Labour Party in the recent past.



Re: Hilary Benn

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 17:59:36 +0100

James Keir Hardie was proper cloth cap Socialist. There were Christian association to via The Methodists. Despite right wing n centrist infiltration 20s 30s and later of which Benn was one but as he admitted opined later wished he had seen the light sooner. The Attlee government was most radical with NHS creation and family welfare at the top of the true Labour party movement principles.. remember those? as well as tradition.

Neil Kinnock Wales valley lad... Judas..
following in Nye Bevan footsteps.
Spoke left and acted right as so who so many see the attraction of filthy lucre. As Tony Benn had plenty of worldly wealth he could afford to be principled but Kinnock was from first to last a bully. I have seen him in action against senior citizens at conference in the eighties etc and there is no comparison. Benn was true gentleman and never resorted to. physical aggression


The electoral college was being trialled and eventually morphed into today's fairer system with. Corbyn etc. Benn was the darling of the left and a prince among politicians. We are sorely missing his sort today

Are we talking about the same Neil Kinnock who trashed the same Tony Benn (amongst all sections of the electoral college) when challenged for the leadership in 1988? In what mythical past was the Labour party ever controlled by the then Benn-ite wing (or Militant or any other equivalent for that matter)?
