I agree with you. Though corbyn has said if May loses the vote he will table a no confidence motion.

I don't think Corbyn is the answer & would actually make things worse. If Labour had a decent leader they would probably win if an election was called in the next few months


A 'decent leader' being who in your opinion?

I would sooner have Yvette Cooper leading Labour but people underestimate Corbyn. People claim with a better leader that Labour would win but how did Ed Miliband do again? Like him or not Corbyn gave Labour their biggest vote increase since 1945. The Tories are in power for one reason alone, Brexit. Once its over with things will move back to domestic issues which Labour where the upper hand.

I in no way underestimate the man but I've seen rocks with more personality, and that is where he falls, IMO. He fails in coming across as a leader should - dominant, commanding and powerful.
I have watched him tear down May, but I have also watched better. The man is too passive - we need someone with a fire in their belly and I for one can't think of anyone for his job. I seriously hope he is as good as you say Guest, but so far I haven't seen leadership qualities in him.

Corbyn's like an old geography teacher who wandered into parliament by accident, got voted in as Labour leader and is now trapped in a personal hell when he just wants to go home and drink tea.

Perfect analogy of how he comes across. I have seen a shift in the clothes he has been wearing in the Commons, I do hope that is his advisers trying to get him to "look important". I have nothing against any kind of dress but, many others see differently...

The man is clear in his political views but it is those very views that are now and still, holding him back.

Why, are you claiming original creation of it?

Right wing types such as you would never agree with JC on anything and silly little comments, such as the one you posted, is about as close to debate as right wingers get.

A proven jra sock.

I alerted and showed the evidence to the mods.


Now who could possibly know the evidence? :gigglesnshit:


No one, because it's a completely made up accusation.

This was all covered ages ago, as in I've never had a sock account on DS then and now.

But, I'm quite happy for people to believe in fictitious claims if it makes them feel good.

No skin off my nose.

Yes. As I'm allowed to do so.

Which begs the question. Why did you reply to my post, just to say that?
