    Is this about having him in the not-Potter movies?

    What's she said?

    I can only imagine the twitterverse has exploded, while I do think he's a cunt I'm more surprised they cast him as he's genuinely awful these days.

    You’re the one in trump army. You tell me!

    So, I take it Corbyn was indeed right to support his promotion despite being aware of allegations?

    And responding with spicy memes or ‘melt’ doesn’t count.

    Ugh

    She's not the only one, Terry Gilliam was quick to the 'how dare some bitter woman try and bring down a great man/my mate' when the accusations first came up. A real bummer when they've done some fantastic stuff I really enjoy.

    He was wrong to appoint him and right to suspend him. It was poor judgement, and in hindsight looks a desperate move.

    Okay good, now take a deep breath and make 50 spicy Corbyn memes as penance.

    Hopkins came in after one of the mass/group resignations didn't he? I can see why they'd be too quick to appoint without checking properly when loyalty was at a premium.

    Jared O'Mara as the leaderships pick would be another case.

    They're getting better now there's a long truce and acceptance among the PLP and the leaders office has got their shit a lot more together.

    That Vice documentary was scary stuff but they couldn't still be that chaotic and flappy when it comes to internal matters*

    *obviously they're still not too hot in the chamber but the rest is a lot more professional

    Have you been going back over month-old news looking for things to bring up on here, Mfolf?

    Appreciate you've a hard-on for me and while it's sweet, I'm happily married with two kids.

    And I don't kiss centrists.

    Sorry.

    Yeah, but it's no excuse.

    No, it stood out as another blaring hypocrisy in your post criticising Rowling (in the politics thread?!) with some nonsense about centrists when the god emperor himself is guilty of much worse.

    Of course not, I can just see how it could have come about

    At least I hope it's that and not the kind of toleration of bad shit we see among some activist communities covering up for the greater good like the SWP claim when they did/do it

    I expect more from him. And come to think of it, Corbyn consistently sharing a platform with the fucking rape cult that is the SWP is disgusting.

    Yes, after supporting him. And he wouldn’t have fired him if it didn’t get the spot light that these things are getting now.

    I dunno, I don't really feel too great about a potential wife beater being the biggest star in a kids film with the probably the bestselling children's author in the world wholeheartedly endorsing him
