Strange thing is if Labour had any other leader than Corbyn they would probably win this election.The truth is people do not trust him.

Tell me Chrisbo?What is his policy on Brexit?

That's better. But even that's not a fortune is it? Not these days.

No. Call me a champagne socialist all you like, but I'm well aware of where I come from and that not everyone gets the same opportunities I had. I know a lot of people because I lived in a pub for 20 years, and a good portion of them have struggled for as long as I've known them. It's utterly ridiculous that some people are expected to trudge through life and are called lazy, socialists, communists, beggars, workshy or whatever else people want to throw at them, just because they hope for better.

The meme where three blokes sit around a table with £10 on it is fantastic imo. One of the men takes £9 and then nudges one of the other two, "careful that man's after your quid." That's exactly where we are, where the wealthiest have somehow convinced the rest of us it's the least fortunate who are to blame for all our ills. Future generations will condemn our apathy.

I agree with that. After 9 years of Tory austerity, Labour should be trouncing them across the country. But Corbyn has been, is and likely always will be a liability.

Its the people who expect better but do nothing about it thats the problem. Those who work hard yet earn the minimum wage deserve help/support as are those who are unable to work due to illness, disability, etc.

They're all bundled together by government and most people who do better. I vividly remember the Tax Credit changes brought in the other year by Osborne. I made the point that many of the people you knew were about to lose £1,500/year, and you defended the changes because they also caught the scroungers.

You were going off on one about how bad for the country right wing politics are and what a wonderful world we have when labour are in power based upon your rose tinted views of what Blair did for Britain :lol:

Strangely this country prospered greatly under Blair, look at us now after ten years of Tory rule! You think that's ok?

I'm sure the EU would be delighted to negotiate a deal, tick all the I's and T's then hang about while we hold another referendum

The economy is booming. If you were not in your padded room most of the time you would notice.

Sadly not the case for those killed in Blair's war in Iraq.

100% this. Never Corbyn!

Anyone else and Labour would have my vote.

Robert White?

Haha, he is probably too busy gluing himself to a train.

Did you know he DEMANDED a meeting with Bossomworth and Louisa when we signed Lenighan. Made a right prat of himself then too.

I think Corbyn did quite well there. I don't agree with some of what he said but he offered clear reasons and answers with few clichés.

All points answered in a reasonable fashion apart from deflecting his associations with terrorists & how he is going to finance his plans without a trickle down cost to the man in the street.

I didn't hear any questions about either of those issues but I did start watching about 8-9 mins in, must have missed them.

The trickle down cost to be fair wasn't asked as an outright question, what was telling was he never touched on it either.

If there weren't scroungers the decent people wouldn't be caught.

By that logic we should jail everyone for sexual assault, because although the vast majority will be innocent of that crime, the policy will catch those that are. Live by hyperbole, die by hyperbole :)

Wait until next weeks expose gets released. I wonder what the Hebden lot will think after that!
