Another fantasist with hands on the levers of power, just what the UK needs.
 
I’m definitely not a fan of Corbyn or what he represents, but there is a whiff of desperation over the best way to get the message across to his loyal breed of fans, in the hope they will see the real ogre that lurks in the shadows.
Apparently the Mail on Sunday has devoted 20 pages today, slating the sainted Jeremy as ‘unfit for office’. Who’d have thought it?!
One of their exclusive revelations is that he prefers Tesco brand baked beans to Heinz. Come on! Of all the real shit you can hurl his way, you are wasting time and effort on this level of journalism? :smile:

There is a new biography out, full of salacious details.

Its merely free headlines and stories for the lazy DM and its useless journalists, rather than any sort of timed or targetted political campaign.

Since they changed the ingredients I have moved to Branstons beans so I can't fault him too much on the been front.

Asda's own brand reduced sugar/salt is my current choice. much nice than 'name' brands I think.

Well that's concerning. There's just enough hard of thinking voters out there who would vote for JK Rowling because of her series of books which are quite popular*. If I remember correctly she's come up with some pretty lefty ideas before, which obviously haven't involved her splashing her huge pile of cash about. Yes from the outside she appears to be another champagne socialist, jsut like Blair... Ahh I can see why they're getting on so famously!


*If you don't believe me try going for a piss at King Cross. The entrance to the toilets is right next to some ghastly cash generating tourist trap and its always rammed with people "oooh'ing" and "ahh'ing" over someone standing next to, what appears to be, some modern art masterpiece of a shopping trolley half embedded in a wall.

JKR donated £1 million to Blair's New Labour once. Her former single parent on benefits status goes down well with Guardian reader types.

Quite. Bottom feeding hacks trolling for turds.
 
You gov doesn't count as its biased and a Tory puppet

Only an independent labour backed survey is independent enough to be trusted im told
Conducted by the Baroness, obviously.

I've always considered him a bit of a has-bean.

They’re serialising a biography of Corbyn. All these revelations, most of which were already known, ie he’s a feckless dullard who is financially incompetent, are courtesy of the book’s author, not the Mail directly.

All leaders have their personal weak points. For example what about Winston Churchill. According to a biography I read recently, he was not only drunk most of the time (which is fairly well known), but also had a penchant for exhibiting himself, "au naturel" having "just got out of the bath" when important visitors arrived.

Apparently he even exhibited himself to President Roosevelt. Does it matter?

What were his weak points though?

One of the problems of modern public life is that we ('we' being the salacious end of the media who purport to represent 'us' and political opponents looking to gain advantage) expect our leaders to be entirely virtuous.

No-one is, and not being so does not mean that people are incapable of doing their jobs. As noted before, I've met some bloody horrible individuals who are also very good soldiers, I've met some very strange somewhere-on-the-spectrum individuals who are very good in other specialist fields.

It's nonsense that 'we' are unable to divorce individuals' harmless (in the sense of not causing major harm or upset) personal habits and peccadilloes from their professional capabilities.

That is not to excuse poor or doubtful behaviour; it is to recognise that one's 'failings' do not detract from the ability to see a job well done.

...however, in Corbyn's case, he is entirely unfit for any public office, starting at bin man and ending at PM.
