Should Corbyn ignore the smears against him?

Recommended Posts

If I was Corbyn I'd sue their collective arses off - he really needs to put a marker dowuun with the right wing press.

 

I'm not so sure that he does. We the people are a lot wiser than we're given credit for. Most people can smell bull**** and this has been going on for such a long time now that it has become a bit of a joke. What next "Corbyn Ate My Hamster!!!"

 

The only harm the press could do him would be if they could find evidence that he was dishonest or disingenuous. Like him or loathe him, even his enemies agree that he is a man of principle who has for all his faults, stuck to his guns and not kept changing to court the current political fashion. He is excruciatingly boring. He has been an obsessed political animal all his life and it is hard to believe that anything 'saucy' would ever be found about his private life. In fact if it was I suspect his popularity would likely rise rather than fall.

 

No, I'd advise him to ignore it and not give it any credence by engaging with it. It will either blow itself out, switch it's focus to Momentum or annoy enough people to actually increase support for him in the country at large.

 

At the end of the day it is a massive testament to how fearful the establishment is of him.

The people in the article were in the IRA..you asked for proof that Corbyn had met people in the IRA..

 

No, I asked for proof that he had ever met the IRA. As I said earlier, many politicians have met people who have been in the IRA. Anyone who served on Belast City Council since 1983 has met and shared a room with people who had been in the IRA.

 

Are you seriously suggesting that they are all IRA supporters? Good luck with that lol :)

The level of delusion and grandeur is really rather cute isn't it?

You have to wonder why he isn't...

 

He's calling Ben Bradley to rights, an apology and a donation to a charity it seems.

If I was Corbyn I'd sue their collective arses off - he really needs to put a marker down with the right wing press. He cant spin it - certainly not like blair could - so he needs to do something to put this to bed. Whining about it won't stop it.

 

Whining is what his particular leftist branch specialise in though. They don't actually want to DO things, they just hate people who do actually do things. Actual power holds people to account, whining doesn't.

 

Personally I would be delighted if Corbyn sues, but I am 100% certain that he won't because then his story, from MI5 files to witnesses will all be laid out in public and the magic Momentum believer fairy dust won't work in court.

I'll stick that in the quote bank for posterity.

Please do. :) As I understand libel laws, an accuser would have to prove that it was true rather than Jezza proving that it was false, but relying on that in court would be a beyond risky strategy for any politician wishing to be PM.

 

Not that Jezza expects to be PM.

Corbyn has had constant innuendo, flak and fake news thrown at him, and has never risen to it. He doesn't 'whine' he just gets on with the job. He most certainly does want to do things which is why the right wing is so frightened by him.

 

Meanwhile the Tories specialise in extensive and expensive reports, inquiries and commissioned documents which they then ignore, instead of doing anything.

hmm, I’d noticed the quality of debate had risen considerably over the last couple of days
