So what's the deal with Corbyn? Our media present him as slightly to the Left of Lenin ;)

 

Well, Labour of late has been doing their part to appear as close to the Tories as possible, so I guess Comrade Corbyn will be a return to the mean. :)

A party named "labour" that actually implements big capital politics and kills jobs for workers was not really credible. That is now the back lash by the partybase. How big was the influence of fresh members on the result? There seemed to be an influx of new members recently.

Exactly why german SPD is dying slowly. Astonishingly a few months ago I talked with a JuSo, and he had a harsh case of cognitive dissonance pertaining to his party's politics. Fascinating.

I guess Labour members have had enough.

Lets level up the lunatic side of his ideas. He is against Nato, nuclear weapons and the EU. So in that regard he is something of a complete throwback to the Lunatic left from the 1980s.  I personally reject all that, and I think any right minded individual in Britain does too. Indeed if he concentrates on that, I think he might make himself unelectable.OTOH, one can point to the Coalition and the Present Government and say they have done  nothing to assist the armed forces or Nato or the EU and so in that regard you might  think there isnt much to choose between them. :D

 

 

Interesting - I probably haven't been listening properly, but I was under the impression that the Conservatives in the UK had become so anti-EU that if Corbyn really wants to beat them on that policy, he would have to invade the Continent - and for that he needs an army  ;)

 

Great post, btw.

¨Well, support his unilateral disarmament ideas, purchase the nukes off him for "disposal", arm them, hey presto, you have nuclear deterrent, UK doesn't... Gibraltar is yours.

 

Now if he tried to go for the British Socialist Union, will Northern Ireland become Britain's Taiwan?  :ninja: ;)

I tend to think that Europe needs Britain either in or out.

 

Britain being in, having a say, but not contributing to solve European problems is a nuissance. Seems to me that this is were we are currently moving.

 

But I'd much prefer Britain in the EU to keep some of the centralistic tendencies (both in the EU and in some of the EU countries) in order, for economic stability, as a solid democracy etc.

Well, Labour of late has been doing their part to appear as close to the Tories as possible, so I guess Comrade Corbyn will be a return to the mean. :)

 

Nothing of late about it mate, Labour has been doing that since the late 1990s when St Tony of Blair managed to make Labour electable by locking the likes of Corbyn firmly in a box away from the gaze of the electorate and pretending they'd invented something new called the "Third Way". Labour got the kicking they did at the last two elections not least because over a decade in power the Tory clothes "New" Labour had appropriated had become so threadbare the electorate could see the reality of what lurked beneath and they didn't like it or want it. 

 

Fellow travellers like Billy Bragg (the millionaire socialist) and blinkered useful idiots always play the "not left wing enough" card to excuse this fact because they are mentally and ideologically incapable of acknowledging that the electorate knew fine well what they were/are selling and they simply didn't want any part of it because it only ever goes one way; personally I never cease to be amazed at the number of otherwise sane and sensible folk who either cannot or will not grasp the enormity of the damage done to this country by Labour between 1997 and 2010, and don't understand it will take at least three Parliaments to make a dent in clearing up the mess.

 

Consequently you're right about Corbyn's election being a return to the Labour mean, as it will likely render Labour unelectable for the foreseeable future, which is a good thing altho there are two downsides.  First, this will leave the Tories without an effective opposition, which is not a good thing because the Westminster system needs a strong & coherent opposition to function properly.  Second and prolly more importantly, younger folk may be taken in by Corbyn's attractive pixie dust nonsense because they have no memory of the reality of life under loons like Corbyn, having been brainwashed into thinking all past evils were solely due to St Margaret of Thatcher the Milksnatcher... :rolleyes:

They forgot him inviting Gerry Adams to Westminster not long after the Brighton Bombing in 1984and his holding a minute'e silence silence for the PIRA scum shot in Gibraltar in 1987. And he's just invited his "comrades" Gerry & Martin to Westminster for coffee again:

Another nail in Labour's electoral coffin I think. But that's what happens when you elect a "radical" student-politics ideologue who has never had a proper job or political appointment in several decades sitting in Parliament and whose sole claim to fame is standing against his own party several hundred times. :rolleyes:

He tried that during the last General Election is support of Labour, and again during the Labour leadership election in support of anybody but Corbyn. As you can see from the results of his primetime efforts, Britain was really impressed...
