I did forget about that, but the public wouldn't have been aware of that note so I don't expect it swayed the vote either way. I thought devaluing was held off because Labour had previously devalued the pound once or twice before and didn't want to become the party of devaluation.barcode wrote:I do believe there was something about the Economy in that elections, remember this is where the note about having no money first appeared, its also why devaluing was held off for so long...1964 Not Economy
Tony Blair's intervention and the constant near bullying of Corbyn is only benefiting one person - Corbyn. As he is polite and calm it only makes him look better than his vicious, careerist opponents. If he doesn't win I reckon there's about a 33% chance of a split in the Labour Party - with the left going off to form their own party. While this wouldn't be electorally beneficial I expect the new party would be as popular as the remaining party and it would fuck the leadership of the Labour Party who take the 50 MPs who oppose them for granted.
Also is it wrong that there is a part of me that wants Liz to win and Labour to lose the next election to prove that being right wing isn't beneficial to the Labour party. Although the Chuka and the gang will probably decide they lost the election because they were too left wing and turn the party into some kind of Gladstonian mess.
