What's not to like about that?

You can see who's coming to town...
If Corbyn was in power there would be statues of him and Stalin in every town by now at a far higher cost. Plus Comrade Corbyn would probably have some Ilyushin transport aircraft to fly in on his visits to Moscow, Beijing, Pyongyang, Tehran and Havana, oh and not to forget Caracas.

And the Graun and Indie would be singing his praises.
 
I feel that we need a retrospective on Labour Leaders this century. Just to revel in the glory, the capability and excellence...




Looks like that Brigadier in the first picture is going “WTF is he on?”
Gordon Brown, “oh shit she’s sussed.”
Miliband playing Moses.
Corbyn evidencing he wasn’t there
Smarmer, seeking inspiration

The expression on the Brig's face is priceless: "WTF did you just say?"

So was it shirt sleeves up or down day when Tony visited, seems he went for half measures.

Whilst I agree with your observation, here is a list of Conservative leaders in the same time frame.

Between the two sets of leaders it shows a real paucity of talent in British politics in the last 30 years or so.

Yeah but this is the Labour leader thread :p They also, I think, managed to avoid too many photographic howlers like above.

Finally, I'm pretty sure that at least three of them would have gotten to at least Mediocre. Didn't IDS have some good ideas on reform of the benefit systems, and actually seemed to give a damn.
