Corbyn is not fit for purpose.

Anti-semitism. Strong ties and support for terrorists.

Is anyone of any political persuasion seriously considering trusting this man with any responsiblity?

As posted earlier
JEREMY CORBYN is facing a blistering new onslaught over anti-semitism after footage has emerged of him praising the release of Hamas terrorists, which he referred to as “brothers”, on Iran’s state TV. ...
Hamas this week pledged its support for UK Labour Party leader ... And more photos show Corbyn alongside Tunisian terror chief Maher

It makes a change to see such a negative thread which hasn’t been started by the left!!!

I find myself hating, yes literally hating, this bloke more and more each day.
The bloke is a spineless weasel who for the last two years has called for an election at every opportunity knowing full well that a no-deal brexit was on the table and in fact the default position. Now suddenly he pretends to care and won't support an election until no-deal is outlawed.
I sincerely hope voters blame this arsehole for all the uncertainty and upheaval as parliament talks itself round and round in circles over the next 6 months or more.
The last thing this country needs is more Brexit delay but Corbyn clearly doesn't give a toss about that!...

Corbyn and Labour have had plenty of time to sort out the anti-Semitism issues within the party. He isn’t a man of action and once again appears to be stuck sitting on the fence.

I think it is a real shame that the Labour party has wasted so much time fighting to get Corbyn accepted when deep down all of us know he is not wanted or needed. There have been plenty of alternatives such as Tom Watson who would have made an excellent leader and I'm confident the party would be walking all over the Conservatives if Corbyn had been dumped ages ago.

Talk about brainwashing!

Corbyn has never supported any terrorists, some seem stuck in a record of mistruths or seem to distort reports to suit.

Corbyn's leadership has been challenged twice, and twice he won by a landslide over and above many people think they would like in is place.

I am not convinced he will win an election because there will be a huge assault from the opposition trying to perpetuate the distortion.

Corbyn does have sympathy to Palastine and so do some Jews but Corbyn never supported any terrorism on any side to achieve anything. he did say he feels empathy for ANY side who has lost loved ones due to terrorism, including the families of terrorists because they are forced into a corner. That is also not supporting terrorism.

Putting Corbyn's past to one side I still agree with Neros and it's good to see a socialist not ranting and raving on here.

Personally, I don't give a toss about the terrorist and anti-Semitic stuff, I care about what Corbyn does now and in the future.
He accuses Johnson of being disingenuous when he is in fact the most deceitful politician going.
The whole of Parliament are playing games, as if a delay is what the country needs right now - no-deal is not the best way forward but neither is delaying for another year or more. We have been talking about this for 3 and a half years and dithering Corbyn wants more time.
I hope the economy starts to crash and ordinary working people that Labour are supposed to be fighting for start losing their jobs - Corbyn will be responsible...

I agree with Neros, Corbyn does himself no favours and the ambiguity over Brexit is one of the biggest disfvours he's giving both his party and the country.

Yes Kallone, I know many too. Labour yes, Corbyn no.
Labour will miss out on many seats because of Corbyn.
Most people can see this, even his supporters can.
So they shout loudly while they still can, after the election they have to wait another 40 years.

Its not just voters, other parties seem unwilling to support him in any potential coalition.

Nero1954,

Where do you think deep down "all of us" know he is not wanted or needed?

I read responses to Watson's speeches and although I don't think he's a bad guy, he stabs Corbyn in the back every opportunity he gets. He also jumps on every bandwagon to try to derail Corbyn.

I found this experience of someone who worked in his office.

"Tom Watson’s team “seemed to hate Jeremy Corbyn”, actor Steve Coogan has claimed his daughter told him.
Clare Coogan-Cole worked one day a week in Mr Watson’s office and spent time campaigning alongside the deputy Labour leader's camp.
She was vocally pro-Corbyn and told her father that members of Mr Watson’s team wanted the Labour leader to “fall flat on his face”."

Those of us who joined Labour in support of the much needed change in Labour Corbyn brings, know, deep down, that it is his politics we really want. OK, some have left Labour after several years of expecting change that Corbyn has zero power to change at present, but the party is still huge compared to the Conservative Party.

My hope is that when an election marketing comes into force, Corbyn will wind up yet again to inspire people from his previously hidden skills of public speaking. Even Blair admitted he never realised Corbyn had such a light hidden in his tunnel.

It's right that Corbyn isn't manipulated into an early election on Johnson's terms. That would be weak and like a fly into the spider's web.

I have understood Corbyn's rationale on everything so far, nothing insincere at all, just not being swayed to appease those who only look at short-term solutions at the expense of long term ones.

"It's right that Corbyn isn't manipulated into an early election on Johnson's terms. That would be weak and like a fly into the spider's web."

So why has Corbyn been demanding an immediate election for the last two years, surely even you realise that is earlier in time than if we had one now? No-deal has been on the table all that time but it didn't stop him wanting an election.
Why haven't the spineless opposition legislated for no-deal to be outlawed before now?....

Michaelt. You are so wrong. My friends are ordinary working class. Some are like me and due to illnesses are unable to work and need a caring government and are fearful for the future. I don’t know anyone who wants a Tory government as their first choice but for most a Corbyn government would be their last choice even though they might be traditional Labour voters.

Kallone_1 , They are fools and ill tell you why.?

Due to our undemocratic voting system, all its going to take at the next G/E for another term of Tory rule, is a majority Tory vote from a 51 per cent turn out. Tell that to your Labour friends.

I would also like to ask your Labour voting friends why they dont like Jeremy Corbyn. ?

Sorry Michael but hardly anyone likes or wants Corbyn. He isn’t helped by all those around him who are a nasty bunch by any standards and remind me of the Stalin regime.

If we think we're in the 5h1t now, just wait and see what Comrade Corbyn & Co will do if they get control.
