Anyone who's a Corbinite should take a long look at themselves.

They've basically kept in power an unelectable, terrorist sympathising communist with no chance of winning. As such the Tories have gotten away with being the weakest party we have seen in modern times as there is no competition.

You need a strong opposition to get the most out of a government and without it, look what we have!

I believe this proves my point.

This guy wants to accept all the smears and lies that all the Tory press throw at Corbyn to keep a **** Tory government in power, but wants to blame Labour for that and not the Tory press or the Tory government. :lol:

They had a chance with David Milliband, someone I'd probably have voted for.

They ousted him because he wanted to make party funding changes I believe, installed his idiot brother and the rest is history.

But you keep telling yourself that Corbin is the answer

I don't expect you to be able to answer this, but i'll ask anyway.

What was it about Ed Miliband that made you think he was an idiot?

Free trade deals aren't about "how much can we screw them for and how much can they screw out of us". Hopefully. Free trade, which most of us appear to be in favour of, are MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL. A good trade deal will be profitable for us and profitable for the other side.

We have not been able to negotiate a sensible deal with the EU, principally because the EU is determined to ensure that a free trade deal is not profitable for us - ie. not mutually beneficial. As both leavers and remainers have pointed out, the EU feels it has to be seen to punish the country that wants to leave, because of we do well out of it, the other countries might vote to leave as well. Hence, no free trade deal unless it's on punishing terms - so punishing, in fact, that even the pro-Remain House of Commons won't go for it.

And if you are trying to make out that joining the EEC in 1973 was what caused the recovery from being the "sick man of Europe", think again. Wilson's and Callaghan's governments made the economy worse; it was while Healey was Chancellor that we needed the loan form the IMF, the stringent currency restrictions a la USSR, and the 101% top rate tax. The winter of discontent was 1878-9. Thatcher's government in 1979 was what got a grip on the financial crisis.

Hunt saying it will be a european effort to protect our ships, is just another attempt to undermine Brexit. It's good to have everyone's support, thus what meigh ours are for, but we shod be capable of protecting our own ships on our own. The response from Hi t is a typical limp twisted effort, and shows why he would have been a disaster as tory leader.
You cant treat with reasonable people, when they are unreasonable the only thing they understand is strength. We aren't weak, but at the same we are only as strong as our leadership.
Countries that feel they are getting a poor deal off europe will flock to Britain if they think they can get a better deal. It's about making profit, not the size of the profit. There are opportunities there to be grabbed.

This is often said - that the EU is "determined to ensure that a free trade deal is not profitable for us" and other similar things, when the EU has never said that. They've said they can't have Britain conclude a deal that has the benefits of membership without the obligations. That isn't in any way unreasonable. That some people have to twist that into "the EU is out to screw us over" is quite sad. I can understand why - you have to make the EU a bogeyman, and do what you can to polarise the debate - but it suggests your arguments don't stand up without having to embellish them.

Of course they haven't said that. They wouldn't, would they. They're legally obliged to negotiate in good faith, so they wouldn't be stupid enough to say they aren't doing. Obviously the fact that they haven't said it is proof of nothing; but their actions tell the story.

The benefits of membership, as far as the UK is concerned. is free trade. The rest of the EU's activity - the parliament, the political union, the CAP and CFP, the mooted EU army, etc - that is not a benefit, and that's why they're willing to let us out of most of those. But free trade is the big benefit, and it is mutual. The total amount imported from and exported to the EU by the UK, is the same amount as the total exports and imports to the UK by the EU. Agreeing free trade would have a mutual benefit worth the same in absolute terms to both sides.

But, of course, the EU is bigger by a factor of about 4. So if this free trade doesn't happen, the proportionate loss to the UK is four times the loss to the EU. And, as Lancaster has frequently pointed out, the EU will use its power and size to do down its smaller neighbour. Mutual benefit doesn't come into it.

A lot of Brexiteers and Conservatives are making similar assumptions with the maverick Johnson.


So I'm not comparing Johnson to Hitler at all, but referencing the dangerous game that the Tory Party are playing in handing power to him despite all the evidence that he is completely unsuitable.

I don’t really understand the negativity around a European armed forces. Our armed forces have been systematically dismantled by successive governments and is no longer fit for purpose, as a fighting force.

Perhaps a European force would be a good option.

I want open borders. You don’t.

Democracy, as mentioned above by C&J what’s democratic about the arrival of Boris, and previously Theresa May and Gordon Brown. Democracy is only any good if politicians can be held to account, whether they’re elected or not.

Things need changing in the EU as Macron has said, but for me it is a worthwhile institution.

You do know that one fifth is only 20%.

I’m sure that the Europeans will have some ideas on how to replace the 39 billion, and most probably at our expense.

We can hold them to account at the next election. The new leader does a poor job and we can vote to remove them and their party. We, as individuals, cannot directly hold the EU leadership to account.

That’s not quite true though is it. All politicians lie and make pledges they don’t keep.

Even if you do vote for change in an election, the Uk system of constituencies still favours one party, and in all honesty as Brian Walden once said, both sides of the house want the status quo to continue, that way they can line their pockets. This belief that you get want you want when you vote is naive.

The way democracy is thrown around as some yardstick of fairness is ridiculous. The will of the majority forced upon the minority, no matter how small the difference is not “ fair “ is it really.


The choices on offer in the Houses of Parliament, apart from the new leader of the Liberals, I don’t know much about her, makes me think that having an alternative is not really a bad idea.

Were people genuinely that bothered about being in Europe? Until that nuisance Farage started stirring it up with the help of the Sun, Mail and Express nobody was that arsed. The Tories panicked and the rest his history. Yet it seems to some to be Labours fault? And if you believe the smear campaign being waged against Corbyn, well, we will just keep having to put up with the Tories. Not the best outcome for ordinary people.

However, I'm willing to use your own logic, and the words "Greenmile" and "uneducated illiterate clown" are all mentioned in the previous sentence.

It is though, if the new leader makes a mess of it and the voting public agree, they will lose a large vote share and ultimately their job. I can cast my vote, directly to help bring that about. I can do nothing directly about Junker, Tusk and Co. I mean just look at how Selmayr got his position and the power he has and then come back and try and argue the EU is not corrupt and is democratic.

Will those who voted for De Pfeffel claim that any criticism of him is an attempt to overturn the result?

Onwards and upwards. At least we now have a Prime minister who is on our side, not trying to be neutral between UK and EU. A vote for the optimists.

It'll be interesting to see what Parliament does now. If Hammond and friends do bring down the government, as they appear to want to, I presume they will be chucked out of the party? Is that the convention? Has it even happened before?

I think it's now fairly obvious that if we leave without a deal it'll be the end of the UK as we know it. I suspect Boris does too.

Boris Johnson is on Boris Johnson’s side, no one else’s.
