Corbyn - time to go?Page 1 of 22    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)
This must be the most dreadful result for the labour party just about ever. In Scotland it would appear the Torys made ground but only at the expense of Labour. The SNP are doing well.

Down south, Labour is in disarray. The Libdems gained more votes but no seats whilst UKIP looking more and more like they've climbed the heavenly curtain.

I like Corbyn but clearly most of the electorate don't or at least don't think he makes a good leader. even at this late hour just before the General election, should Jeremy stand down and give someone else a chance to lead a credible challenge?

The Labour Party has a very democratic method of electing their leaders.
Compare that to the "coronation" of Theresa May.
The Home Secretary who promised to reduce immigration to "tens of thousands", but in fact presided over ever increasing numbers.
Rewarding boris, and Andrea with top jobs, for "graciously" standing down in the "election", which never was.

So now we have boris as our "top diplomat", a man not known for his diplomacy, he has insulted almost as many as the duke of Edinburgh.
And Jeremy Chunt.
Doing the same thing to the NHS, as he did to the leveson inquiry.

My council's budget was cut by 40%, to make the vulnerable pay for the gambling debts of the banks.

This "stable" government has given us two elections in two years, two referenda, and a third looming (Scotland doesn't want to leave the EU., but wants to leave the U.K.)

But keep believing the Tory spin, -and you'll deserve what you get.

They say they're the best people to negotiate Brexit, when there won't be any negotiating.
The rules are clearly defined.

Britain will become even more of a 'tax-haven' than it already is.
"British protectorates" like the Cayman isles, jersey, Guernsey, are where tax-dodgers hide their wealth already.
In order to "cut-deals" with china, India, Malaysia, and many other places, May and her cronies will continue to relax immigration from those countries, just as they've done already, despite still talking about "labour's open door"

Everyone who bothers to post in political threads claim they want change, but then believe the spin about Corbyn and labour.

Personally, I don't think "taxing the rich" is the solution, and I don't think "minimum wage" is the solution,
I think that companies who pay poverty wages, but have high profits,(because of that) should have to reimburse the state for any benefits paid to their employees, to allow them to live.

When we had strong unions, working people did better.
If you want change,then vote labour, vote Corbyn.

If you want more "austerity", but only for the already poor, then vote for the party that gives millionaires tax-breaks,
cuts benefits, fvcks-up the NHS, underfunds and cuts school budgets,
closes libraries and social services, and has working people using "food-banks".

Theresa want this election to be about Brexit.
The tories will get the worst deal for Britain, because the EU hates them all.
That's already becoming apparent.

If you really think that things have "got better" in the last 7 years, then I want some of what you're smoking.
Working People can't afford to live.

I just don't care anymore.

Have a nice Sunday, I'm mowing the lawn. (Eventually, I promise)

Great box chap, you're a sly one :)

On topic No .... Things could be dramatically different in five years...
Theresa May wasn't coronated that was Gordon Brown , the Gideon Osborne of New labour.
She did promise to reduce immigration, this was done to win public approval.
Her policy is the opposite though, this was done to win public approval .
Seems to me the electorate is a troubling mass of stupidity.
For with shockingly poor productivity the number of people working has to rise to keep things
On an even keel. If I was Jeremy I'd run on a platform of no taxes and then bail the treasury out
every year with quantitative easing.

The thing about Corbyn is that he started off so weakly. Made an arse of himself at question time by quoting likes of "wee baldy not from Glasgow" instead of doing his job.

He has grown up (unlike "wee baldy not from Glasgow"), but he's left it too late to be taken seriously.

I remember when Labour was socialist... then wankstains like Blair right royally screwed the system.

Great thumbnail squarey , you look like a rock God

Anyway as I was saying he could take the QE and spend trillions on whoever he wanted. If anyone criticised him he could sing a few verses of the Alexander O Neil song. And besides if they were no longer paying taxes he could tell them to **** off. I mean no one has a left leg or a right leg to stand on because the QE is already buying bonds, shares and houses. The fed is the biggest landlord in the world. Go on Jeremy stir the pot.

Yes its been tough since the Conservatives have been in but life has slowly got better and those local governments that had Conservative reps down here have fared much better than the local Labour constituencies. Because they didn't spend spend spend...


Actually Tory councils around here have been quietly eroding essential services and grants to voluntary agencies who prop up councils, in order to keep council tax as low as possible and therefore themselves in power.

I'm in Winchester too, and as Tory administrations go, it's not that bad; probably because the Tories have an effective opposition. Over in Fareham, the Tories have a massive majority and the council is led by a dictatorship. Millions spent on buying up commercial enterprises, while there's a food bank in the town centre. Madness. Yet those who bother to vote at all (a third on average)keep voting them back in. There's a good reason why.

Some people cannot distinguish between local administration and national government, so they vote for the party they've always voted for, rather than the best candidate to represent them.

Secondly, as long as people don't feel as though their pockets are being directly emptied, they'll turn a blind eye to a lot of things. At a local level, as long as their bins get emptied, they don't care. At a national level, as long as taxes and interest rates are low, does it matter about the NHS? Only when they or a family member need it. And it's not just related to the Tories. Blair literally got away with murder until Brown messed up the economy.

As far as Corbyn goes, I'm not a Labour voter, and I haven't looked that closely at him. What I have noticed is that for a politician, he comes across as a little too normal. Not a good thing for a party leader maybe.

Pauline

I just read something from the Trussel Trust that said that when Cameron got in they had 46 foodbanks, they now have 446


I help out at one of their food banks. 3 more have opened in my area in the last 2 years. It is a bit soul destroying seeing folk come in totally embarassed to admit their need.
We sit them down, give them a cuppa n tell them it's nowt to be ashamed of.

Anyway, in my younger days, I voted for the Tory councillor. I'm a nationalist to the core, but he was a man of the people n wasn't parachuted in. He actually lived in the area.
At council elections (for me) the address means as much, if not more, than the party!

Well, Marine le Pen got her nasty "racist" arse kicked, which gives me great hope. (Although 10 million people voted for him, which is a worry)

Nice try with the vote thingy Dave, but it still doesn't seem to be working.

This isn't a presidential election, this is an election for the party in government.
May wants it to be about Just Corbyn.
Or just Brexit negotiations.

After 6 years of "austerity", cuts to services, and pay freezes, last year, the wealthiest on the "rich list" saw their wealth increase by 14%
For someone who is already a billionaire, that's about another 140million.
That didn't come from improved productivity.
That didn't come from property price inflation.
It didn't come from stock-market increases.
It came from you and I.

One more post, and it'll be an open goal.
You're welcome.

Back of the net!!!......basically jo lost possession and some left winger with a dodgy squad number threaded the ball through to me who.... bingo'd bango'd.

Saw our winsome pm and her lovely husband on something called the one show tonight clearly they know how to put it on the streets. What a dynamic duo. Her damn fine legs were kept under wraps for later in the campaign when all the great beer swilling lefty unwashed demand a leaders debate like a broken Gramophone record...

Ps I think dave's box is the dog's box.....it works for me I can vote early and often

Vvvvvvv
She's streets ahead in the polls, why would she let a load of .....*I'm gagging*....... socialists score inane points off her.
They would simply call her evil and demand more public spending. She's printing money .....the whole world is....
at $250 billion dollars a month. This is unprecedented in world economic history. I left the casino a few years ago .
On her watch this is all going to come crashing down. It was saved the last time, when sub -prime lit the fuse world
total debt stood at 157 trillion dollars now it's $250 trillion . It can't be paid. It's a ponzi. A pyramid scheme. I don't
know what will light the blue touch paper , maybe China , but the U..S. Currency is finished as the world's settlement
and reserve currency no matter what violence.....

Breaking news Trump's pumped Comey.....
She's afraid of losing the election to at best a bunch of sanctimonious fools.

Mays husband is currently being investigated for conflict of interests/access to "insider information" which could/has proved extremely financially beneficial to him, in his role as a "hedge fund manager".
This "vicar's daughter" has an extremely "cafeteria Christian" sense of 'morality', when it comes to the treatment of the sick, vulnerable, and disabled.
Instead saving all her "charitable thoughts" only for the very richest.

May has already been described as "living in another galaxy" , by J-C Junker.
The riles of EU membership are clear, and Britain will have voted for them.
If you're a member, you get: THIS, and if you're not, then you don't.

IMO., anyone but the tories would get a better deal.
Look at Cameron's efforts which led to his petulant referendum.
He achieved nothing.

The majority of immigration comes from outside the EU, and May's record numbers on that were entirely under her control, but she reneged on her election "promises", because economic considerations will always outweigh social considerations, in the minds of a Tory.

So they "cut deals" with china, and India, and Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain, and anywhere else where they could sell expensive weapons, regardless of human rights, or the purposes for which they'll be used. And those countries want to be able to send people here, and make their purchase of weapons, which will "boost exports" here, dependant on those concessions.

Interesting that the announcement from the CPS., that there would not be any criminal charges brought against the 30 Tory MPs who cheated election expenses to win in marginal seats, is made on the same day that Trump fired the man leading investigations into his campaign.
Apparently, it's all about "intent".
Seems like a re-writing of the "Nuremberg Principle" to me.. [/Godwin, no returns]

Mays govt is slashing the funding to education, already resulting in the sacking of teachers, and increasing class sizes, while she sets aside money to fund more "grammar schools", and more "faith schools", where children are indoctrinated with odious fictions.

Any working class people supporting, or voting for the tories, will deserve what they get.
Want change?
Vote Labour.

Presumption of innocence for Mr May...Junker is a foreigner and a drunk. May be not the first person to concern one's self regarding the british national interest. The rules of the European union are clear a 5000 page constitution as opposed to the u.s Constitution's 5000 words. Culturally different too, we have a liberal common law while they can't Stop writing code. A deal's worth pursuing but trade is not where it's at. We do have to finance a trade deficit with them. WTO rules. . tariffs at 4% and the 15% depreciation in sterling because of our trade deficit ( it needs to be more) ....makes it better than free trade for us not that we can beat the Germans at that in or out. She's already elected, Corbyn and the Labour party are going to take a beating. Mind you the eurozone does have 10,000 tonnes of gold which is more than us, thanks to Labour and Gordon bailing out the bullion banks. The labour party, the curse of working people.

Presumption of innocence for Mr May...Junker is a foreigner and a drunk.

Well, I'm probably as biased as you clearly are.
To me, the words "hedge-fund manager" initiate the same "fight or flight" response as the words "puppy-strangler".
It was "hedge-fund managers which began the 'run' on northern rock, and profited from the financial collapse.
Betting on failure is already a "conflict of interests", if you're married to the prime minister. IMO.

Theresa May is a self-serving politician, with personal ambition, just like cameraman was.

Corbin is an honest and modest man, who cares about people, and the country.
He is, by his nature "anti-establishment".
I hope all the people who used that reason as an excuse to vote Brexit, or ukip, realise that the best way to stick it to the establishment, is to vote labour, and get a real socialist for pm.

Politics has changed to being more about "PR" and media manipulation, than politics.
And the electorate are happy to limit their political involvement to voting for "X-Factor".
"Post-Truth", and "alternative facts" will no doubt decide the outcome.

The tories have destroyed this country.
I can only hope that if things continue to get worse, for the vast majority of working people, that eventually they'll snap.
The levels of inequality in this society would put the victorians to shame.

I'm glad I'm not 20 today.

When I was born, the national debt was about 200% of GDP., and we played on air-raid shelters.
We built the NHS, from scratch, roads, rail, infrastructure, schools, and social housing on an unprecedented scale.
In the 70s, workers had something which was approaching a good standard of living, and improved employment rights.
The tories destroyed the unions, and workers have gone backwards, ever since.

Capitalism failed, not socialism.
But because that failure occurred during 'labour's watch', the tories have somehow managed to persuade the electorate it was due to labour policies, and overspending.
And most of the electorate are far too stupid to bother doing their own research.

We'll see.
Theresa May makes me want to vomit.
"Tim Nice-but-dim" in drag.
She's at best, a mediocre dimwit, in expensive clothes.

If you want "anti-establishment",
Vote scruffy geography teacher.
Vote Corbyn

I don't think Corbyn is scruffy, he has obviously learned from Michael foot's travails in 1983. As for my clear bias and your probable, I won't be voting for Theresa May on June the 8th because she is a socialist. I will leave my ballot paper blank. I voted brexit last year because I didn't think I had the right to hand over Britain to a German wannabe empire after so many had given their lives in World War Two to prevent it. I am not without honour.

Jo you are a Labour Party zealot. You post as if Britain and Europe were closed and not open economies with a current account. I can't read her mind but maybe she feels that Jeremy is big on talk and short on walk. Maybe she feels that the stability and maintenance of our economy and the reasons for it like the special relationship, the city of London, unchecked insolvency with a few flagship lefty policies defeats Jeremy's big bold revolution which would upend the prevailing cart and usher in an even worst economy.

For me it's the global debt and who will eat the losses. And the massive collapse in living standards that's coming probably on her watch. You'll enjoy the tories being hated and despised maybe Jeremy will get his go in 2022. The next twenty years will be the austerity years the last twenty were the boom years marked by rising inequality as the banking criminals tightened their grip, all kicked off by your bought and paid for Tony and Gordon. President Obama only yesterday gave a 90 minute speech for $3.2 million dollars in Milan. It's graft isn't it. For a president who was elected on an unprecedented ocean of banking money back in 2008.

Have ye traced the monarchy at all?

As for global debt, the entire planet appears to be in debt to just a handful of people.

Sake.... Abramovich's biggest boat alone is worth 1.5 billion.... prob more than the entire Russian fleet. Communism ans capitalism may claim to be oppsite sides of the coin, but are equally corrupt.

Not prosecuting the MPs and their agents was deemed to be "not in the public interest". I have read and understand the CPS reasons and they are probably right but by not allowing it to go to court the whiff of corruption remains.

As for Jeremy, I think he's OK but it matters not what I think. Talking to my friends, many of whom will vote Tory, after pointing out that the NHS will likely be privatised under May, they still say there is no alternative, the electorate do not see Jeremy as a possible leader.
