    Jeremy Corbyn

    Will Corbyn become the new leader of Labour.?

    Back in the UK at present and watching this fiasco about Corbyn is unbelievable, the news channels newspapers etc seem to be Petrified of this guy becoming the new leader of Labour.

    The news channels are choosing to interview all the so called militants from the 80s, to discredit him.

    Surely giving him this amount of exposure just gives him more chance of winning.

    The situation reminds of a good film from a few years ago, A very British Coup.

    I think it will be good for British politics. At the moment you can have Conservatives or Conservatives lite.
    Corbyn is old school hard left and a working class hero. At least he would do a job of holding government to account, instead of the meek agreement of the present Labour party.
    The alternative is to go the merkin way. No thanks.

    Not saying I'm a supporter H. It just seems to me there should be at least a hint of an opposition party to hold government to account.
    Strange that disaffected youth did not rally around Farage, but they like the Corbyn message?

    Chas No I knew what you were saying,there's a lot of people in the UK that are really pissed off whats going on over here, and anyone that can make them accountable for there doing gets my support.

    Possibly not as PM, as a possible real step back in time,though wait and see what he comes up with.

    We now have UKIP SNP and possible Labour leader, should start some alarm bells ringing.

    Don't follow UK politics way I used to but whatever his politics the establishment will sort him out just like that other darling of the left -- er -- his name was something like Tony somethingorother. A fuckin' nondescript who betrayed the hopes of the UK working class much like this one will. Guaranteed.

    Tony was a Tory hence he got Labour elected, Corbyn while a likable straight talking nice guy is a total economic fruitcake, should he become leader and I hope he does any manifesto he puts together come general election time will be a total joke, we can all come up with great ideas when we don't have to tell people how they will be paid for which is what he's doing now and I sincerely hope it works for him.

    Lets hear him publicly name the pedo child rapist that was a Bliar Minister, and he might have a little bit of credibility.

    evette cooper, wife of ed balls might be a better option for labour.
    trouble is, she looks like an ostrich which has had its neck stretched
    and then come back to life.
    snp, ukip. liberal, fecking greens,,, too many opposition parties
    uk needs an opposition with clout.
    think the days of politicians like JC will remain in history folklore.
    if the conservative heavy austerity fails after 5 yrs then there may be a chance
    but there will be no financial back-up to their program of light austerity.
    getting rid of trident to fund it will never happen.
    JC has a 20% lead over the others.

    Hes unelectable though. BEcause Scotland are now SNP, Labour are dust, and even so, the people who voted in Bliar are the tory sway voters and they got what they wanted. Ignorant twats.

    It isn't a one round first past the post election though is it?

    Isn't it similar to a balloon debate with one candidate being dropped off the ballot until there are just 2 left or has the system changed?

    If that is the case it is hardly surprising that he is currently in the lead as a true man of the left while the others divide up the non-left votes until the final round

    didn't nigel farage get similar treatmemt from the press when he first
    appeared on the scene ?
    JC is a seasoned politician with a lot of answers under a cool head.
    going after tax safe havens will benefit countries who allow it, like america.
    wealth creation is the name of the game
    but then we have the robots/artificial intelligence competing with humans on the horizon.
    we're fvcked.

    There's a lot of wealth already, but it's not spread around.

    Sustainability and economic diversity seem to be drivers, along with justice, accountability and equal opportunity.
