If I was been really, really generous about Corbyn, I'd say he is a left wing idealist of the type that was common in university graduates of his time.

Virtually all of those people have grown up and come to realise that the ideology of their university days simply doesn't work in the real world.

Unfortunately, comrade Corbyn never grew up and still genuinely believes the left wing stuff.

That's why he has such a hard time giving any straight answers - he knows that if he expresses his true believes, he'll be laughed off the stage.

If I was being less generous about Corbyn, you probably wouldn't print it for fear of defamation!!

 

Cheers

I think you're spot on - except, of course, he isn't a university graduate.

I tend to think of him exactly as an anti-establishment trot protester of that era, but all fart and no sh1t; sort of a Baader-Meinhoff type, but without the balls. 😂

Have lost count of the number of pictures I have seen with Corbyn cuddling up to the IRA.... in particular Adams and McGuinness.

That is not propaganda that is living proof...

...I'd probably actually vote Green...

The Green Party is committed to introducing the following measures:

The most dangerous weapons will be prohibited. These include handguns, multi-shot and high calibre weapons. There will be a complete ban on the private ownership/possession of all automatic and semi-automatic firearms.

All deactivated weapons will be treated the same as active weapons in terms of prohibition and licensing...

  1. Licensing 
    A single rigorous licensing process will be put in place based on considerations of public safety rather than the convenience of shooters. Subject to relevant criteria, licenses will be issued for permitted shotguns and rifles, all lethal airguns and permitted deactivated guns. 
    Users of firearms for sporting or agricultural purposes will be required to demonstrate their competence in handling firearms and satisfy the authorities of their mental and emotional stability:
    1. Applicants should also be required to obtain the signature of, say, ten citizens (just as a prospective electoral candidate) who will vouch for the good character of the licence holder. This will discourage the 'loners' and socially isolated individuals who are most at risk of committing the horror that occurred at Dunblane and Hungerford.
    2. The cost of medical and psychological tests must be borne by the applicant, together with a new annual fee which is sufficient to repay the economic damage - to police, court and NHS - inflicted on it by the abuse of guns generally. When licences are awarded the onus will be on the applicant to demonstrate his or her suitability to handle firearms rather than on the authorities to prove the applicant's unsuitability. Licence holders will be required to renew their applications on an annual basis individuals whose licence application is rejected will be required to wait at least two years before re-applying.
  2. There will be a complete ban on the manufacture, sale and import of imitation weapons (replica guns and blank firers) and a ban on their public possession.

Labour are going to plant 200 trees per minute until further notice - the seedlings don't exist nor is there sufficient land available...

And an oak tree only sequesters 1 ton of C per 100 years, whilst we all produce 10 tons each annually.

It's all cobblers from all sides.

...and I'd suggest there's more to play for than single-issue voting on licensing proposals that are similarly cobblers promises not even worth the ink. 😊

By the time the Greens gain any leverage, we'll be too busy bailing out the houses from rising sea levels to worry overly about Green firearms policy !

I live on a hill at 185m, likely to be looking over the Sea of Cheshire to the Islands of Beeston.

I don't think firearms legislation is a likely deciding factor for me.  A sense of proportion and priorities; and a glass of whisky is to be recommended.

Something all the remainers need to remember is that a vote for Corbyn probably means leave, even if they don't say so. To do all the very expensive nationalisation the UK has to be outside the EU!

 

I also wonder about how many people don't seem to understand how democracy works. People voted to leave, we should carry out that result. Of course all remainers are then free to try and get the UK to rejoin but that is an argument for further down the track.

Oh, that's how democracy works !  🤔

Glad you cleared that up.  There was I thinking a General Election with clear choices was also an exercise in democracy - obviously not.

Get Labour in as a minority gov, stage a second ref, not much time for all the other spending spree, wouldn't get a Finance Bill passed anyhow.  Ah, bliss

Seriously though, Brexit is clearly a major issue in the GE but by no means the only issue playing out.  Should Labour cop for a minority government it will be because sufficient people don't want Brexit or at least Boris Brexit.

I hope Boris gets a majority ( a substantial one) and a reasonable form of Brexit is delivered. Anything else would be a betrayal of the referendum. This is not particularly good for me as a Brit living in Europe but for me principles come before my personal gain or comfort.

Corbyn, a total terrorist supporting bawbag, beggars belief how anyone could vote for that.....for example:

Del, I hope so..........there would be a majority here to bin the EU but the politicians are too bent ( fingers in EU gravy train.... google Babis and Storks Nest fund for an example of our PMs sticky fingers) to have a referendum.

There is a LOT more to worry about with comrade Corbyn than just taking our guns away.

I would agree. Why anyone who owns more than the clothes they are stood in would vote for Corbyn (the terrorist sympathising communist) and the lefty bunch of clowns is beyond me - I wouldn't trust Labour (Lib Dem, Green etc.) to run a bath!

I too hope that Boris gets a (very) large majority, leave means leave (there has always been a deal available, it's called WTO!).

Bozer gets my vote , anything else is a waste of a vote if you want the UK to move forward and prosper , a hung parliament would be as equally disastrous as a Labour government . 

Voting has never been so important however much you may despise the choices.

Matt, the world has gone bonkers.......sort of off topic but just the Jewish thing..... wonder what Harriet Bradley thinks of JCB ( especially as Boris just did a plastic wall with  one).

Complaint lodged with OECD about JCB allegedly not preventing abuse of its machinery in Palestinian occupied territories

Chirst on a bike..... if I were CEO of JCB I would not be supplying any JCBs for foreign aid projects or anything in the Gaza Strip. Never mind all the good stuff you can do with a JCB....... withdrawing all heavy plant from Palestine sounds like the only way to stop Mrs Miggins tea and hash shop from getting a facelift.

Well, being honest, I'm still a little bit undecided about the direction of my vote this coming Thursday.

Obviously, I've taken into consideration what I consider to be the following major factors on the two main parties:

Voted against outlawing the glorification of terror. Voted against control orders. Voted against increased funding for the security services to combat terrorism.

So it’s a tricky one really.

The world is not black and white, both main parties are run by incompetent and self-serving individuals.

I don't want Brexit, I don't care about the nonsensical arguments about "democracy".  It's all about the 10% in the middle - have they changed their minds?

I choose the path that is least unpleasant knowing that most of the extreme nonsense in Jezza is well under control

"I don't care about the nonsensical arguments about "democracy "

Well you should. Mugabe and most of the tyrants in the world got into power and hold onto it by distorting and ignoring the democratic process. Hitler did it as well. Be careful of what you wish for. Your least unpleasant path might turn out to be very unpleasant indeed.
