I don't know if Corybn is even that left wing tbh

I've not read anything positive about him in the Guardian or BBC - it has literally just been the middle class nomark cunts attacking him

They've made him out to be this monster, threatening to quit the party if he takes over because they couldn't possibly condone such an evil bastard presumably... to which I say good, fuck off, and why stop there, why not hang yourself in your garage too, Kendall, Cooper, Burnham

It's time we had a purge of that lot

Anyways I'll have to go read about him. If that lot hate him then he must be alright

I think Corbyn's getting so much flack from the Labour party members because they've got so caught up in the Blair-esque mentality that they've forgotten what their party is supposed to stand for. Makes me hate Blair even more, he's turned Labour into Tory-lite, to the point that most of the current party don't even seem to know who they were any more.

Demanding an answer to a hypothetical question based on an impossible scenario is wummery

Might as well ask if he gave you 10 million quid and a blowjob, would you vote for him?

Yes
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

Spot on. Labour is two parties rolled into one; there's the Labour Party which is what working class people round here want, then there's the New Labour Party, which is what wankers want. Like you said, it's basically Tory Lite

The New Labour lot should create their own party that is disassociated from the unions and their funding (and thus the working class), and raise funds the Tory way, which is to bend over to business, industry and banks to get funding in return for tax cuts, favourable legislation, policy etc.

Nothing wrong with hypothetical questions in developing a line of argument, surely?

Swamp, Sid and I will now demonstrate how this is supposed to work :-

Here Sid, I saw a load of posh cunts bragging about how much money they had at 21, and they started throwing twenties at state school kids shouting trust funds mother fuckers!

I didn't intervene because I wanted to wait and pick up any score notes that weren't covered in tears, how does that make you feel?
