What have they learnt and how's it different?
+1

The Left is the same as it was 100 years ago. Socialism always fails cause it's run by capitalists.

They have a facebook page. They must be serious.

We could go over there and spam it with sarcasm?

They are probably only trying to emulate Dylan Haskins and get more followers than votes.

The same old boring crap from the left. Perhaps if they didn't split every five minutes the electorate might give them more attention. Perpetual losers. And I say that as someone who would consider himself a centre lefty.

Will they be asking Alan Shatter tough questions about Palestine?

The big problem I see for those on the hard-left is that they fail to see the difference between what is achievable and what is aspirational, a kind of all or nothing approach. That is the big difference, most on the right would settle for not having to take any more tax hikes which may be achievable.

Essentially the far left have an inability to compromise, and when they do it usually results in splits and fragmentation, often over utterly banal and pointless "issues". Look at the Socialist Workers and Socialist Party. Feck all difference between them. However the SWP believes change can only come about through mobilising the workers outside the political system, while the Socialist Party believes change should come about by mobilising workers within the political system. Daft cu.nts!
