That may well be true mate, who's to know, as Amanda said, he is already being assasinated in the media, and by so called Labour mp's who are running to the said media like babies telling tales. What i know is that he is a breath of fresh air among the usual suspects when it comes to politicians, say what you like about him, but he's genuine, and follows his beliefs up, and that's why he got voted in as leader by ordinary folk sick to death od spin. A lot of folk on here talk about sheep, when in reality they're the ones who are doing the baa baaing.

Thats right, and those nice media people together with the PLP are so running scared of his popularity ( the labour Party membership has rocketed to well over 300,000 since his election as leader) they are doing everything to stir up trouble almost every day that they get all the other sheep bleating while the Tories and their chums continue to ransack and asset strip what little there is left of the country

Assassinated in the media?

More like public suicide.

The guy is a train wreck, and the train is a steam relic from the 1970s

Great source of amusement though I will give him that.

'Public suicide' and 'train wreck'. I've read these phrases in the press myself so I can see where you get your information from. If you want to see a political train wreck you should have been with me at Boston A&E Tuesday night, four and a half hours to get a sick old lady assessed, as we waited the queue from people needing medical assistance was meandering outside with others waiting in ambulances. Non of this was the fault of the NHS staff or ambulance people, it is the fault of years of political neglect designed to make the system fail in order to sell it off cheap as they've done with everything else. It was the same last Saturday in King Lynn A&E. The people trying to cope and help those in need are dedicated and deserve more. Thats the wreckage we should be looking at Jolly, and its Cameron and his government that we should be holding to account and demanding answers and action, but all we get it calling and laughing at Corbyn.

Don't know a lot about politics but for me he seems to be like a grumpy old man with no respect like not singing the national anthem in respect of our servicemen.

Would it have hurt him to do that no but he seems to have his own little agenda.

I agree with you about the nhs though that's a fair point.

I think you should read up a bit more about Corbyn to be honest Pocket, because he's much more than what the media is portraying him as.

jolly_roger
07-01-2016, 12:18 PM
Yes there's a lot of stuff about Corbyn considering he was a backbencher for many years.

summary of it all:-

1. Every Labour administration avoided giving him anything important to do
2. He's always been a professional moaner, quick to criticise but rarely suggested anything contructive
3. He's a 1970s relic way out of touch with todays politics and world events.

Just the man to keep Labour unelectable,

Bigging him up keeps the Tories in charge

No, I don't think anyone wants that Amanda. But whether it is the scaremongering of the media behind it or not, things will have to get very bad indeed for everyone ( including middle income earners) to consider Labour under Corbyn to be a viable elective option. As a life long Labour supporter I do not want Labour to become the permanent party of disunity and opposition. And quite frankly I would prefer a middle of the road or even a right wing Labour Party in power than the Tories any day. Politics is all about the achievable and until Labour offers an electable alternative for a majority of the electorate and not just committed left wingers it will achieve precisely nothing.

I get why people see it that way but if you think about it I'll use me as an example Id never sing the national anthem but have ton of respect for anyone who has given their life for the freedom of others, you could stand me next to some tosser who has no respect for anyone but wants to be or needs to be liked, at some kind of service with the anthem being sung, he'd sing it, I wouldn't and Id be the one who'd be slagged off because people don't think about what's actually important with such things IMO.

Fully understand why people want naff all to do with politics as well, which is a real shame.

Yes I know that but it was a service to pay tribute to our armed forces past and present so imo I think he should have sung it.

I think it was more a snub to the queen but it wasn't the correct time to be doing it in my opinion

Didn't we do something similar with a guy called Dennis MacShane?

07-01-2016, 10:50 PM
Not for 33 years! And while we're drawing that comparison perhaps we should compare McShane's expenses record (imprisoned for fiddling) with Corbyn's (the lowest of all 650 MPs claims in 2010).

It seem that Corbyn is hung drawn and quartered for not singing the national anthem and showing little respect for the queen, sadly I cant see any constructive debate about the actual policies. I cant see what relevance singing God Save the Queen has got with trying to save the NHS and developing a decent and fair society. He cant sing God Save the NHS either being an atheist, so I guess we should burn him at the stake the filthy anti christ that he is.

Exactly my sentiments.

Unfortnately he needs middle England to vote him in and a lot of middle England are more interested in how many credit cards they can cram into their pockets.
Corbyn will never get the media onside, his character will be trashed at every opportunity.
He does still need centre / right people in his team.

He is doing no more no less than any political leader would and does do ie he selects his team to suit.

The vote to bomb Syria was a free vote, so no stifling of speech there and other issues are directed by the party whip as it is in all political parties.

Unelectable ? Labour has been unelectable in the last two General elections and lost seats since 1997 all this pre Corbyn. He has increased his majority in his constituency consistantly. He was elected as leader on over 60% of the vote more than any other leader. Since becoming leader there has been a flood of new and returning members to swell membership to over 300,000 the biggest membership of any political party.

He constantly tours the country and fills halls and assembly rooms to the rafters, standing room only reigniting debate and re energising peoples interest in politics who are fed up with the same old pap from the Tories, Liberals and New Labour. Giving politics back to the people.

Corbyn seriously threatens to de-rail the establishment gravy train which is why Murdoch etc. will do all they can to stop him. This country is very wealthy, the problem is that far too much wealth is exported off-shore by the super rich. Corbyn threatens to put a stop to that which is why he will be lied about, discredited and abused by the establishment at every opportunity.

Osborne still bangs on about the "over-spending" that "got us into this mess". Sooner or later, the country will wake up to the fact that it wasn't over spending on welfare, the NHS, public services, defence etc. rather the establishment (in the form of a corrupt banking industry) fleecing the country on a monumental scale. Chucking good money after bad (i.e. more into the bankers pockets) won't pay off the deficit which is effectively what Osborne is doing, we need some serious investment in UK manufacturing infrastructure for a start. The Tories will never do that. Personal debt continues to rise. Why is tha
