'Labour hasn't won since the iPhone was invented!' Adonis' lashes out at OWN party


Lord Adonis has been affiliated to Labour for nearly 25 years, serving in the Government headed by former Prime Minister Tony Blair, where he was Transport Secretary between 2009 and 2010. He lost that role after Labour was ousted from Downing Street by the Conservative Party and its leader David Cameron to break 13 years of power, first under the premiership of Mr Blair, and then Gordon Brown. But Lord Adonis’ party has experienced a disastrous time since, losing three straight general elections as the opposition slipped down the pecking order among UK voters.

The first Apple iPhone, one of the best-selling mobile handsets in history, was released amid a panic-buying frenzy in June 2007 – two years after Labour won its last general election in 2005.

In a stunning comparison to that, Lord Adonis has taken to Twitter to apparently mock the party’s dismal failures over those years.

He wrote: “Today’s fact – Labour hasn’t won an election since the invention of the iPhone!!”

Several people replied to those comments to highlight just why they think Labour has not won any of the recent general elections.

Twitter user Richard pointed out: “Labour doesn’t win elections because they do not resonate with voters outside of their own following.

“The majority of our countries electorate are actually swing voters.”

Pontaumur tweeted: “Shocking isn’t it but still the infighting continues rather than tackling the real issue of the Tories.”

Bill Warman commented: “Since Tony Blair, they have spent to much time trying to be middle class.

“We can’t even take advantage of the scandals around the Government.”

The comments from Lord Adonis are the latest this weekend in which he has seemingly taken a swipe at the Labour Party.

He lashed out at both the Conservatives and Labour over their positions on tax hikes.

The arch-Remainer also claimed #Brexit was at the route of the problem.

On Saturday morning, Lord Adonis tweeted: “So we now have a Tory government putting up taxes but pretending it wants to cut them.

“A Labour opposition which would put up taxes while complaining that taxes are already too high.

“Neither of them talks about Brexit, a prime cause of the higher taxes. Time for honest politics.”
