Labour's Manifesto is so good, why hasn't it been done before?

Because Labour hasn't had such a left wing leader.

Plus corbyn can promise what he likes. It's never going to happen. He is on borrowed time.

2015 We had The Ed Stone.
2017 We now have Corbyn taking the UK back to The Flintstones.

40 years out of date that's the way it read to me, clearly these people are not up to date with current affairs. Next thing we know they will want to bring back CND.

Where do people get this idea of "taxes beyond acceptable levels"? Its a myth. They might restore the income tax levels to what they had in the middle of last decade, and raise corporation taxes a bit. This is not going to change any individuals lifestyle to any dramatic (or even in most cases, noticeable) extent as its mainly focused on the wealthiest, but collectively speaking it will potentially raise a lot of revenue that can make a huge difference to this country.
I would advise people to take a deep breath, ignore the right wing media (or take all media hyperbole with a pinch of salt), and just read all manifestos with an open mind.

The Greek, this is basically the Green manifesto plus Trident. Is it the Trident bit that makes it the best you've ever seen? Please don't tell me you've voted Labour whatever they've said in the past while ignoring alternatives that reflected your values.

Especially if it so popular.

The cost of implementing even a fraction of these policies would not be achieved by raising only the taxes of the rich. Can people not see that? Is Corbyn going to give us the figures or would that spoil his Santa Claus impression.

The problem remains with Labour that while their policies are popular with the country proven in polls such as rail renationalisation, keeping the ban on fox hunting etc the fact is that most people can't stand labour members and supporters who go around squawking fascist/racist at every one who disagrees with them

@tonk - don't let a noisy minority put you off, as there are people within all parties who are unsavoury or overly dogmatic. A huge tory majority certainly won't be supporting or implementing these policies (not at least till the NEXT election )

It's really funny to see Brexiteers, who want to drag the country back 40 or even 60 years to some imagined 1950s golden age, accusing Jeremy Corbyn of wanting to go back to the 70s. Actually the 70s were in many ways much happier than today - I was there. But the truth is, everyone's looking back because, if you look forward and take the blinkers off, you see a world devastated by climate change and its effects, (By the way, did you know about the ancient diseases starting to be released from ancient permafrost? Lovely.) So after one look at what's coming, everyone turns away and looks backwards, hoping that the future will somehow go away. It won't.

Thanks for proving my point buzzard, I wonder if you knew 42% of tories voted remain while 37% of Labour voted leave but hey don't let facts get in the way of your delusional narrative that all 'brexiteers' hate Jeremy Corbyn.
