As I thought, Warren is playing her role as the Sanders-spoiler admirably.
@NarcJoeKennedy I'm of the opinion that the answer is no, but Rebecca Long-Bailey is by far the least bad.
Here’s how Remain can still win
Retweeted by Jon 🚩 @Nes2r3 I don't much will change.And, I suppose we're out.Thirty seconds.One minute.30 years from now, there'll probably be one or two interesting alternate histories written about Brexit.10 minutes left in the EU. All the lights will go out! We'll all die! Oh, hang on, very little will change.With less than 20 minutes left in the EU, I predict that very little will change in the short term.Huh, weird

Say what you want about capitalists, but they sure know how to fuck an entire planet up. @comrade076 As far as I know, yeah. She's said a lot of wrongheaded things during this campaign, but this is unequivocally positive.A positive step was it “divisive codswallop” when you were voting to deselect me Luke?! #OpenSelection

Retweeted by Jon 🚩 @davidschneider Movements are more important. @Ota_Benga24 So what you're saying is, it doesn't work?
@ScreamingStatic Has that ever worked?You can't vote socialism into power. At most, you can vote for tiny, moderate societal improvements. Electoralism doesn't work. @simonmaginn This is actually exactly the Labour Party I recognise. Corbyn, it seems, was an exception rather than the new normal.this is absolutely fucking vile

@mitchmusic I think it's a little less clear cut than that, personally. Explained my thinking on it earlier. @mitchmusic I'm not 100% sure that that tweet of mine made sense, but I think it gets the point across. @BolshevikPotato "You just don't the TRUTH about the DPRK!"Jar Jar used his senate PROXY VOTE to move the Emergency Powers Act, the equivalent of the Nazi Enabling Act of 193…
Retweeted by Jon 🚩 @TwoPabloAngel @britainelects @Survation Can't disagree, but it's still a distance back from the bar set by Corbyn, and he wasn't faultless."Those who do not move, do not notice their chains." Rosa Luxemburg was killed on this day in 1919.
