It would have been inconceivable for a Stoke Central contest to be even marginal until recently. The corrosion of support for Labour in this notional heartland area cannot be attributed to the partys current leadership. It is the expression of a social, economic and cultural dislocation that has been building for many years. But Corbyns leadership was meant to repair that damage. It was sold as the tonic to restore faith in socialism where New Labour had whittled that faith away. The decisive factors in Stoke appear to have been residual, tribal Labour loyalty in spite of the current leadership plus an electoral machine that is a bit rusty but still good for identifying and turning out the most loyal voters.

Im not going anywhere: Ukips Paul Nuttall reacts after Stoke byelection defeat Most important was the good fortune to have, in Paul Nuttall, a Ukip challenger who radiated dishonesty and opportunism. Labour canvassers working the constituency yesterday were heartened to discover a firewall of anti-Ukip feeling aiding their cause. Nuttall plainly thought he could turn up from the outside, march around the Potteries blowing his Brexit trumpet like some tweed-clad Eurosceptic Joshua and see the walls of a Labour Jericho crumble.

He ran the London Labour Briefing newspaper, which helped propel Ken Livingstone to power on the Greater London Council. He was elected to Parliament in 1983, to represent his home patch of Islington North, a seat he has held ever since and where he has increased his majority from 5,600 to 21,000, and as a back benchers was by most accounts a popular and hard-working MP. The Bennite faction that Corbyn belonged to was กางเกงคนท้อง สีขาว already in retreat, following their leader's failure to capture the deputy leadership of the party in 1981. 'Modernisation' After fighting and losing the 1983 election on arguably the most left-wing manifesto it had ever put before the British public, with its commitment to renationalising the utilities just privatised by the Thatcher government, pulling out of the EU, nuclear disarmament and the creation of a "national investment bank" to create jobs, Labour began the painful process of "modernisation" that led to the birth of New Labour. And Corbyn would spend the next 32 years on the backbenches fighting a rearguard action against his party's abandonment of the radical policies and values contained in the '83 manifesto in the name of electability, under Neil Kinnock, John Smith and, most notably, Tony Blair. Image copyright PA Image caption Corbyn has suggested Tony Blair should face a war crimes trial Corbyn might have hailed from the same North London district as Blair and entered Parliament in the same year but that is where the similarity ended. He abhorred Blair's embrace of free market economics and did his best to be a thorn in the younger man's side throughout his time in Downing Street, although Blair's large majorities ensured the damage was barely noticeable. He would always vote with his conscience, rather than be dictated to by the party whips. It earned him the accolade of being Labour's most rebellious MP, defying the party managers more than 500 times. It also meant he and his allies became increasingly isolated, with their views and interventions ignored by the mainstream media and most of their colleagues on the Labour benches.
President and superintendent of the Veil hospitals was Charles M. Janes, of Missouri. Janes was the grandson of Erie real estate mogul Heman Janes, best remembered for designing casings to prevent oil wells, including his own, from flooding during the region's 19th-century oil boom. Heman Janes left his money to his grandchildren, including Charles. "He said his children had received enough money," Puckly said. Charles Janes opened the firstVeil hospital in Kansas City in 1903 or 1911, according to differing accounts, and the Corry hospital, in what previously was a cancer sanatorium, in November 1921. Janes also had an interest in Corry's St. James Hotel, on Center Street, which housed overflow Veil patients and couples coming to Corry to adopt. Corry's Veil hospital was relocated to Langhorne in 1927 and later to West Chester. Dr. Amos Rees continued to operate the Corry facility as a maternity hospital for about 10 years.
