Jeremy Corbyn coming to Sheffield

Recommended Posts

He is one of the last remaining dinosaurs in british politics . He reminds me of that idiot Skinner with his socialist claptrap . Has absolutely no chance of ever winning an election if he becomes Labour leader.

 

They said he had absolutely no chance of winning the leadership of the Labour party....

 

Never say never...

what els can it be than a job, thats what it is, you infer in your post that it may be interpreted that the armed forces is something els. Would corbyn disband the armed forces heaven help us if he does.

 

 

and as a ps I know plenty of x armed forces i dont know one that wants to go to war,

 

If you know armed forces then you know what I'm saying...no, corbyn isn't saying disband the army.

Have to say I was extremely impressed by the focus and vigour and candour of corbyn.

 

What he said about the economy and Germany was spot on. Abolishing the min wage differential for youths is a great idea. I'd like to see how it fares when put upto scrutiny. That's the litmus test.

He seems very practical minded to me, very modern in way of thinking

Can't imagine many other current politicians drawing such a big crowd, unless it was to pelt them with eggs, or bricks.

Corbyn is the only politician with a real plan for the future. His ideas are backed by 41 respected economists who regard his economic policy as 'mainstream' as does the IMF. The one with the dumbest of dumb economics is Gideon Osborne who thinks you can build growth by cutting society to the bone. Corbyn is the only politician to offer hope of a decent future to the younger generation.

That's settled then. Get ready for electoral annihilation next May. At least you'll be able to feel good about it.

Skinner is one of the best MP's of the last 30 years. Even aside from his work as an MP you would struggle find a single policy that hes supported that wasn't done for the right reasons.

 

Corbyn is a nice bloke but hes guilty of "Guardian-think". Making decisions and pursuing policies to be right-on. Something that Skinner would never do.

 

Skinner stands up for he thinks is right. He doesn't blindly follow leftist ideas.

The SNP did very well in the last election with an anti-austerity platform. I see no reason why Labour cannot do the same.

If elected, Corbyn will have a few years leading the opposition. Currently the Tory party have no effective opposition at all. It was the same when Blair was in power, the Tories failed to provide an effective opposition.

 

Political parties should be striving to ensure a plurality of voices within parliament by sticking to their political prinicples in opposition, instead of chasing the next election victory by constantly melting and recasting their policies to fit the current trajectory of popular opinion.

 

If Corbyn is elected, and if the Labour Party gets behind him in Parliament (the second 'if' is a much bigger one), then perhaps we will see some principled opposition to the ideological blitzkreig currently being waged by the Tories.

Well a lot of them teach economics in universities (see here for full list). So they're teachers, not economists.

 

And I would hardly call David Blanchflower respected. Here's one of Danny Boy's more notorious howlers, made in 2009:

 

“If spending cuts are made too early and the monetary and fiscal stimuli are withdrawn, unemployment could easily reach four million… If large numbers of public sector workers, perhaps as many as a million, are made redundant and there are substantial cuts in public spending in 2010, as proposed by some in the Conservative Party, five million unemployed or more is not inconceivable.”
