Hear Corbyn has won another leadership election with high figures of support.
Hopefully the rest of the labour party MPs start taking the message on board.
Whilst I wouldn't exactly be fully convinced by Corbyn, he would be one of the few hopeful leaders in western democracies that I'd have some faith in challenging all the bullshitter trends over the past.
Well. That was a good speech.
Particularly enjoyed the Shankly quote. I have a T shirt bearing the same quote.
Think he's more loved by the Tories than Labour
Stephen Hawking the latest to weigh in. Says Corbyn has allowed himself to be portrayed as "a leftwing extremist".
Not sure about the logic there. The tabloid press portray anyone however they like.
I believe the word "disaster" was used. Maybe he's been watching too many Trump rallies.
Tories will win big at next election. Nothing can stop that. They have the support of the well heeled and growing support in the working classes. They are doing OK in government and OK is more than good enough to hammer Labour.
Blair was fairly well spoken and sometimes that's all people need:
I honestly, honestly think that Labour could have given the Tories a run for their money at the next election if the party had united under Corbyn. I'm talking fire and brimstone shit. They wasted all that energy trying to oust him. But as it is, I agree with you, the Tories have somehow hoodwinked enough working class people that they are interested in their plight.
They are going OK in government? For real? I for one feel like I dodged a bullet in not being born 5 years later. If I had, I wouldn't have been able to afford uni, wouldn't have been able to get a decent job, wouldn't even be dreaming of getting enough money together to buy a house. Doesn't surprise me that homelessness is rising (I'm in Brighton and there are noticeably more on the street compared to last year). Doesn't surprise me that suicide rates are rising amongst young people. Surely they can't all be snowflakes expecting something for nothing, right? I'm guessing some have genuine grievances.
Fact is in late 70s only the elite went to uni. Now dopey Dave from Doncaster can get a degree in Jedi at huddersfield Poly. If millions want to go to uni even if they are a bit thick then I support that but without charging us all 70% tax who is going to fund it? We have ageing population which have to support with folk now not snuffing it 5 years after pensions due, many are pensioners longer than they are workers.
Debt is decreasing and I support that. I'm worse off under tories. They came in and removed child benefit for the 'rich' which every parent has got for generations whether poor or millionaires. And when I say rich I mean a parent earning over £50k. They're doing ok. Just as Tony's mob did. Wish we had a stronger opposition but Corbin is a clown. It's not the 70s and much as we'd like for football reasons we can't turn back the clock. At least leaving Europe has benefitted most of us so far. Stock market booming and as most of us have pensions were thousands better off without even knowing it. Booom
