    Child molestation is irrelevant to my daily life - doesn't stop me from decrying it.

    Yes. I was.

    Because they wanted to leave the EU. Corbyn is still my favourite, but his whole life he has attacked the EU. A thing I hate which is what attracted me to him. But now from pressure from remoaners he is changing course.

    Thought he had more strength then that.

    Your problem is your in love with a political party, and love is not logical.

    The are some of us a lot of us who will vote for who we think will implement the changes we want in society.

    I voted for Blair, regretfully with hindsight and I have voted conservative and UKIP. I don't belong to any party.

    I can think for myself rather then blindly any one party.

    Darroch has resigned.

    Another national humiliation.

    Taking back control really has gone swimmingly.

    Why the hate for Boris? He wouldn't normally be my first choice, but how can anyone hate someone who penned this article?

    The £500 gets my vote. The article makes him a legend.

    Serious question for labour voters.

    Can you trust Corbyn? Try to play the game by backing leave and now backing remain and second referendum. Now I don't care what he backs personally thats not the point of my post but can he be trusted? Seems a man of few morals and a hunger for power to me.

    Thats him and BoJo in a nutshell, isnt it?

    Seems like a bricky choice to make between the two should it come to an election.

    You're asking if a politician can be trusted? The most obvious oxymoron ever written.

    Why is it a national humiliation?

    I assume someone wanted him gone which is why it was leaked.

    Also you never write down anything you don't want your worse enemy to see.

    When you made the grand announcement a year or so back that "Corbyn has some good ideas and I will be voting for him" I had a little chuckle and smiled to myself, thinking, that's never going to happen. And it didn't. I have an ideology, that I'm committed to, not a political party. I don't belong to Labour anymore but am still a democratic socialist.

    Well for a start if he had a hunger for power, he would have joined the Tories wouldn't he? Leading Labour is hardly a role for a megalomaniac... now Clown Shoe Boris on the other hand?

    His position remains pretty constant throughout, leave but with a labour deal. Backs remain over tory deal or no deal. Give him the choice he would prefer GE where he will run on leave.

    Personally think he should back remain but he hasn't yet.

    Brexit fudge up... bought to you by the Tory Party starring Cameron, Farage, Johnson and May... but wait... wait... all the angst is about Corbyn... a man not in government... wait. I'd be more concerned with the shower of brick that caused this mess.

    I don't see how not wanting another 10-20 years of neo liberalism having seen what it leads to makes you a populist. There seems to be a train of thought that anyone wanting anything slightly different from the status quo is suddenly a populist. I look at the lib dems for example and what are they really offering other than more of the same.

    That's because more of the same works really well.

    And isn't the phrase "neo-liberalism" what the echo on the inside of a tinfoil hat sounds like?

    Well I have voted Labour in the past. If we were out of the EU i would happily vote for them as the part nearest to my views on what I feel the UK should be.

    I turned a blind eye to all the hating on Jews thing(in part because I hate them, but I hate all religions) but I can not overlook the flip flopping on the EU.

    How would you feel about a Tory Brexit? The Singapour model - look to attract corporations with low taxes, and fewer worker and environmental rights? Never mind that the UK is nothing like Singapour. We're a completely different economy and location - not next door to China, don't have lots of cheap labour, are an advanced economy etc etc. Forget that this vision is likely pie in the sky, would you be happy with the approach?

    Or is it Brexit at any cost? Has it become so ingrained like supporting a football team that the realities or implications just don't matter. Your team must win?
