Jeremy Corbyn

Thank You ...

Whatever he said was probably correct, but don’t the Tories have something a bit bigger to worry about.

I think the whole country has more to be concerned about than Corbyn saying stupid woman even though he was a stupid man for denying it and causing all this fuss.

I think he said stupid woman. I don't see the issue with that... If He called her a stupid cow, whore, bitch, slut, c#nt... Yes I could see a issue.

Storm in a tea cup me thinks.

I don't honestly think it matters. I do think it's unbelievable that people will argue over such as this when there are far more important things to argue over...and it re-affirms my belief that a good proportion of mankind are still as selfish, greedy and judgemental now as they always have been.
And just for the record, I DO believe May and the rest of her tory cohorts to be all of the above and those who vote for them to be poor deluded fools who whilst claiming to be 'intelligent' are simply getting that term mixed up with 'greedy'

What a surprise...

Well said. My interpretation and experience also.

..."and it re-affirms my belief that a good proportion of mankind are still as selfish, greedy and judgemental now as they always have been."

Let me guess, that proportion is anybody who doesn't support Corbyn and the new, new Labour party? Anyway, I thought Labour was "for the many, not the few" - bit ironic they don't like minorities isn't it?
Aren't you being equally judgemental about us poor deluded Tory voters or do you already acknowledge that you are part of the selfish, greedy and judgemental brigade too?...

So all those people who voted Tory are poor deluded fools.

A lot of people voted Tory to stop Labour getting into power because they remember what it was like when we last had a Labour Government.

Funny how Labour supporters always refer to Tories as the nasty party.

"A lot of people voted Tory to stop Labour getting into power because they remember what it was like when we last had a Labour Government."

Yep, so many voted Tory to stop Labour that it took the help DUP to prop the Tories up and now look at how they have repaid them, stabbed them in the back with the usual tory attitude of "Fcuk you Jack i'm ok :P

But it is of paramount importance to keep Labour out until they find themselves a good and honest leader. I don’t think anyone from any walk of life would be happy if Corbyn or Momentum we’re running the show.
barney  Male  Surrey 31-Dec-2018 15:22 Message #4732334
Just for the record I used to vote Tory but in the last election I voted UKIP.

After the total screw up over Brexit in future elections I will not be voting for anyone because I couldn't care less anymore.
AndyMacG  Male  the West Midlands 31-Dec-2018 16:10 Message #4732337
Personally i really don’t care who votes for whom, in fact anyone who moves there vote around when they don’t agree with the party they supposedly support just to stop someone else having a go says more about them than they think.
Or is it fear even, fear of the party they are forever running down actually getting into power and actually making a good job of things, maybe.

More likely that they are concerned that Labour will actually do a bad job and do irreparable damage to the economy, society and the country as a whole. That is why I fear a Labour government before they find themselves a genuine and honest leader.

wonderoushen  Female  Gwynedd 31-Dec-2018 18:57 Message #4732394
it dosen't matter who you vote for the government always get in.
barney  Male  Surrey 31-Dec-2018 19:33 Message #4732413
Now I am quite looking forward to Labour getting into power.
The youngsters who have never experienced a Labour Government and think Labour is the answer to all their prayers need a wake up call.
People like JustLyn will be happy as there will be loads of money available to pay for all the things she wants to happen.

Thing is they will have to act quick as reports in the papers a couple of days ago states that the money people fearing Labour winning a election have already started moving their money out of the Country so there will be no pots to plunder lol.
JustLyn  Female  Cheshire 31-Dec-2018 21:11 Message #4732451
From various sources. Check further.

Of course it's taken as given, wherever I provide figures from, if it's anti Tory, many here are blighted with tunnel vision.

"As Theresa May and her ministers paint a Jeremy Corbyn victory as one of chaos and risk, it is time for Labour to not only cast itself as a capable pair of hands but relentlessly jab at the Tories’ blustering incompetence.

Bullying of disabled people has got worse – because it’s government-sanctioned...
Few things demonstrate this better than the Conservatives’ record on welfare spending – an area they have long claimed as their territory, but in which they have overseen a culture of waste. Just look at disability benefits. We’re told repeatedly that spending on “welfare” for disabled people is out of control, yet the Department for Work and Pensions has gone nearly £200m over budget, paying two private firms to run the personal independence payments (PIP) assessment system.

The Conservatives have now spent £700m in taxpayers’ money on these contracts alone, despite the fact the process is so flawed that one charity reported that four out of five rejections that they appealed against were overturned.

And if you think The Guardian only produces rogue figures, try this link to an economics one.
JustLyn  Female  Cheshire 31-Dec-2018 21:31 Message #4732455
I'm not stupid enough to think we should borrow borrow borrow, and I don't support a free hand out to people who could work.

However, if a service costs X to run, profit would make more sense to be ploughed back into the service improvement not the bank account of overpaid executives with huge bonuses.

If an essential service is needed that doesn't pay then if it's essential, ie transport in remote areas, elderly care, then we should pay a little more into the system.
We should stop blaming those not paying tax, not because they are being branded scroungers, but because the huge net of support for the genuine has got great big holes letting down genuinely sick human beings.

We have people with only 6 months to live being told they're fit to work. We have people with variable conditions being treated as if they can do the same thing every day. We have people already in work having to give up their jobs because they are losing their mobility money that gets them to work.

How daft and unfair is all that?
JustLyn  Female  Cheshire 31-Dec-2018 22:10 Message #4732472
It wasn't him, but plenty other sources with similar data.
HotOrWot  Male  Lancashire 31-Dec-2018 23:11 Message #4732498
The Guardian is a bit like the Labour Party. It always bangs on about the poor, the underdog and fairness then behaves in the opposite way catering for the privileged Guardian readers and doing no more than spouting words for the poor.
Corbyn stop your lies and move over for a real leader who will help the under privileged.
