It seems rather disturbing to me that the police are beating up innocent protesters, routinely lying to the public and yet the leader of the opposition, so desperate to be the voice of law and order, has absolutely nothing to say about it whatsoever.

The Policing bill and cops attacks on protesters getting any play abroad?
Are you speaking about the young woman suspected of being murdered by a cop while walking home? If so, no, I haven't seen much about it outside of the usual UK media sources.
Bristol's had about a week of protests against the bill which seeks to limit the right to protest, criminalise travellers, among other things. The police have been cracking heads, punching people sat on some grass chanting "Peaceful Protest." Some hyper-authoritarian scenes, with the cops' claims of having had bones broken and lungs fractured by protesters lasting a news cycle before then quietly admitting that nothing like that happened.
Ray Gange was saying exactly the same stuff on his FB page. Complete Police bullshit yet again.

The entire Labour frontbench are craven morons, who support the police's use of force against citizens unconditionally not because of their own beliefs, but to assuage any concerns an imaginary racist van driver might have about them.

Yeah, that's probably the character they've invented to tell themselves they're being politically clever by providing zero opposition to the conservatives.

We're a zillion years away from when Franklin Roosevelt would say, and be applauded for, that he welcomed the hate of the wealthy. Why on earth the left should give half a fuck what the worst elements of society and their allies think about being labelled monsters. Does the left act this way out of some kneejerk opposition to the fact that the right enjoys as a badge of authenticity the contempt of their own foes?

The Labour party are absolutely certain that there is no electoral support for a left-wing agenda, which they can prove by pointing out that their constant undermining and coups against the Corbyn project ensured its failure.

It's like they think they can shift the debate to the right and beat the Tories on their own proven ground. That seems totally fucking bonkers to me. It's not 1997 anymore.

It's one of those things that remind myself that, even if I support a lot of left ideals, I just can't think of myself as a leftist because what formal leftist expressions are so cowardly if not treacherous. I have faith in my values but little in what passes for the left in practice.

That's very true. I suppose i meant its not 1997 in the sense the tories aren't a beaten docket like they were then when Blair inherited a 20 point lead from John Smith. For a while there it seemed they were thinking, do nothing and we'll sail to power in the back of tory lies and incompetence, now the vaccine success has blindsided them and they're back to raising their hem to workington man.

At least the local Labour candidates are showing concern for Police actions even if Starmer and the majority of mp's aren't.

I know where you're coming from. The same dynamic i'm thinking where jeremy corbyns policies poll really well across all sections of the population but they still wouldn't vote for him to be pm. I'm actually in a place where i don't see any credible leftist option and that grieves me. The greens are closest but they need to get their act together.

That video is appalling. That's assault and battery at a minimum and maybe even worse. Hope that unfortunate young woman is ok.
