Cocky Corbyn Marched into
his Conference
Surround by very young Labour members.
Happy he has sorted Watson into a
Special Slow review on him.



He is getting a low rating in every poll.


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-49767667
[Some of the more eye-catching proposals include:
Integrating all private schools into the state sector, removing their charitable status,
redistributing their assets and limiting the number of their pupils going to university

Moving to a four-day, or 32-hour, working week, with no loss of pay
Closing all detention centres and replacing them with community alternatives
Ending all airport expansion and re-wilding 25% of British land
Moving to zero-carbon emissions by 2030
Powers for local authorities to compulsorily purchase empty properties
Expect a lot of brightly coloured clothing to be waved around as delegates seek to get called to speak.
If they do get lucky, they won't have long, as the majority of speeches will be limited to two minutes.]

No.

Where's the money coming from?

Quote:

Don't have much of an opinion, leaning more toward no.

Quote:

YES!

Quote:

How? I'm for it, but how?

Quote:

Nope. Well it depends what "empty" means. Plenty of people have additional homes they're not in all year.

That's what I don't like. Events like this could win me over, generally I lean to the right but my biggest buggaboo is the environment and protecting our greenery.

Labour seem to be with me on that, but I also believe in lowish taxes and minimum interference from above, and basically everything else goes against this.

Thanks. I didn't know that Tom Watson's lost his right to automatically fill in if Corbyn steps down. That's interesting.

Otherwise, that heading seems to be based on nothing. The very next sentence says he's not packing it in... I think it's just based on the fact he looks old and doddery, but he's 70 ffs, leave him alone tabloids!

there have been rumours spreading about Corbyn's health, and even if they are completely false, once they spread there is no going back. He may last as leader a bit longer but he wont last 5 years and that's not really a viable position for a future facing party

Corbyn does look healthy and trim for his age. Far healthier than that orange sack of cholesterol across the pond.
I think the issue is not his health but his psychological fatigue and lack of enthusiasm for carrying on.

He basically always mutters and looks "bored of this ****", I think it's just his demeanour tbh. I don't think he seems any less enthusiastic or more fatigued than usual.

Doesn't matter which woman, the only criteria for the job is that you have a fanny.

It's so insulting to Women.
