Comrade Corbyn to the fore - whither (or wither) the Labour Party?

Does the phrase 'Bread and Circuses' mean anything?

Labour promises four more bank holidays if it wins general election

Comrade Corbyn obviously doesn't understand productivity, does he?
Most of his voters don't work anyway.

So who gives a shit about them having extra days off. You'd think they'd do the maths and work out "less work = less tax = less government revenue and a cut to my benefits".

Comrade Corbyn doesn't quite get working class means you have to have a job (a real one, not a permanent gig as a 6th Form politics society chair).

I wonder if he has ever heard of the five giants? Idleness is one. So is ignorance, which our country is full of right now.

 
She sounds ideal front bench material.

Anyone asked her views on the Jewish faith?
I suggest the position of Shadow Minister for Public Telephone Boxes ?
We have a Shadow Minister for Busses,so why not one for phoneboxes that will fill the front bench up.
Corbyniski can have even more nodding and cries of 'Oh yes Jeremy' when he reads out his scripted rant and fake emails from Brenda a NHS Nurse forced to use a food bank because of those evil Tories.
 
I think he means a three day working week. Unfortunately that means less pay and fewer services, rubbish in streets - oh wait Birmingham already trialled that so they should be ready for it.
well it worked ( well not work as in work,but you know what I mean) in the 70's,so just in case I'm stocking up on Candels. Not catching me out again,also IF Corbyniski manages to get Momentum in power then all my elderly relatives/neighbours/friends are getting bumped off. Not having them laying around not buried stinking the street out,thats the uncollected rubbish role.
No flys on me (they will be all over my wheelie bin)
 
Also amazed that his proposed holidays are all date-specific.
None of this 'last monday in March' scenario.
So, that'll break up the working week nicely.
And if it is near easter, you could have a potential day of on tuesday or wednesday, then Good Friday, then Easter Monday.
3 days leave, and you get 10 days - SSMTWTFSSM - off!
Yep, why not just pulls the shutters down on small businesses now,

Jeremy Corbyn says workers deserve more time off after years of ‘damaging Tory austerity’

Under Labour’s proposals, UK-wide public holidays would be held on St David’s Day (1 March), St Patrick’s Day (17 March), St George’s Day (23 April) and St Andrew’s Day (30 November).

Now, the earliest possible date for Easter is March 22 and the latest possible is April 25.
So, in a two month period, you'll have FIVE days off.

No sign of Trafalgar Day, Empire day or Commonwealth Day then. VE Day or VJ Day perhaps?
 
Even stranger no sign of an Al Quds day, you'd think that would be the priority of Jezbollah
I suppose everyday is Al Quds day for him.

Happily listed as a sponsor here.

Our Patrons - Palestine Solidarity Campaign

Now whilst I understand he does speak Spanish, like most of the Palestinian solidarity Campign people I had ever met - he doesn't speak Arabic.

One wonders how much of an actual handle he has on the situation given that small issue?

After all, I cannot mock Seb Gorka as being an "expert" on terrorism who cannot speak the subject matter language without extending the same suspicion to Jez.

Agincourt day? Waterloo Day? Malplaquet day? Act of Union Day? Learn some history day?
 
Here was me thinking bribery was a criminal offence...

What a pathetic & dishonest pile of poodle crap he is & so typical of socialists, where the end justifies the means, all the way from promising free bus passes to mass murder.

I’m pretty sure Mr. Corbyn isn’t planning any mass murders.


I mean, I don’t follow every word he utters but that would probably have been in the Express.

He has friends who do and admires those who have - judge a man by the company he keeps!

Your comment on understanding productivity may be valid, but not just because some people will get extra days off.
A huge percentage of workers have to work bank holidays if they are on shift so won't get any extra days off. Many of these workers work in the care or retail sector and many get no extra pay for working bank holidays.
Four extra bank holidays could easily mean four extra days a care worker has to fund child care as their child/childrens school may be closed due to bank holiday.

For employers who have a fixed income like the: police, fire, ambulance, NHS, armed forces etc this will just add an extra burden to their finances and man power.

There will of course be extra hassle for those needing to get to work while the bus companies have an extra four days of 'bank holiday' services.

This would be yet another set of days off that mostly benefitted shiny arses or lackies like politicians.

Edit. For those who seem to think most Labour voters are on benefit this will of course mean an exta four days that the DWP are closed so unable to offer advice or take claims.
