I also defected to the Lib Dems in 2010, I felt that Labour, towards the end of the Blair/Brown government went down a blind alley of wasteful gimmicky schemes.

Next GE, I really don't know, TBH. I live in a safe Tory seat (Osborne is my MP) so my vote is a bit academic. If Labour DOES split, I will probably vote for the hypothetical non Corbyn half, if not, then Lib Dem

Labour to split party HQ down the middle, just like that episode of 'Steptoe and Son'

There is talk of a Cooperative Party for those who won't support Corbyn.

They'd get my vote.

They'll just lure you in with promises of groceries and toasters then change the terms and conditions of what you can cash in your stamps for - if they let you cash them in at all.

Talk? It already exists : https://party.coop/

If you want to vote for it, though, you'll need to vote Labour & Co-operative.

That's not fair. We need a proper different party so we can split the vote and let the Tories through the middle in every constituency!

I'll say it again splitting is the last thing Labour should do.

Hold on. You said that if Corbyn wins the election you will not support him and will continue to fight against his leadership. The Labour Party is already split. One half is in the kitchen crying and the other half has walked out, slammed the front door and gone down the pub to get drunk.

The days are long gone when a red rosette can be pinned on a donkey and people will vote for it because that's what they have always done. Corbyn or Owen? It doesn't really matter who wins because the party itself won't all get behind the winner.

Unless he meant it in the "Commit suicide? That's the last thing I'd do!" sense.

Very much so. What happened in Scotland in this respect was a wake-up call that I'm not convinced has been been heeded yet.
