    I'm backing Corbyn to do a Trump. There are plenty of people who are pissed off with the status quo and all the other parties are offering is more of the same. Corbyn is offering a different view and, even though it's a flawed view and the spectre of Diane Abbot as an actual minister truly scares me, the system needs a kick up the arse. So I'm voting labour. He's absolutely bang on about the elite having looked after themselves to the cost of everyone else.

    And there we go again (ages posts back), another person (well a same person for a third or fourth time) labelling others thick and thus media influenced. Only about the 300th time on the two threads since the election was announced.

    It's pathetic and the debating level of a 10 year old.

    If your party is good, talk about them. Espouse the great policies that will make the country better. Talk your side up.

    Don't just denigrate the media or the voters that may go another way. No one ever had their view changed by being called an idiot.

    I thought the same when when I read his quotes today. Not sure he has the charisma and will to bare faced lie in the same manner though.

    But stranger things have happened.

    There are many people rightly pissed of with the status quo with good reason, not just in politics but many areas of society, but before you vote Labour you might like to consider that chopping your own bollocks off is seldom a solution. OK Dianne Abbott did at somepoint I suspect but thats a different matter.

    Yes but only if we are in Spoons am not coughing for three in any of the posh Cheshire or town centre places...unless you let her sit on your face as well, that would deserve and probably require more than three pints.

    I'm of the view that change is necessary. Labour are not likely to be a competent government. But " competent" within the confines of the present system is just more of the same and that equates to a collapsing NHS, chronically underfunded social care and real poverty for millions of people. I see the effects of the cosy system of politics Britain's M.Ps have made for themselves everyday and this government, like the one before it, are basically liars denying it is happening.

    Corbyn is an idealist. I don't agree with a lot of what he says, but he is right about some things and he has principles. That's just about unique in politics and he will fuck over the status quo. So he gets my vote.

    I'll try a cocktail of Viagra, Kronenburg and performance enhancing drugs in the hope of raising a semi.
