British people are far to easily brainwashed and will believe everything Jeremy corbyn says. The man is deluded, can’t answer simple questions is against democracy and will quite frankly ruin our country along with Diane Abbott. The end is nigh

Similarly, another high profile labour candidate has recently said that comments regarding “celebrating the deaths of Tony Blair and Benjamin Netanyahu” were made when she was a naive student.

Daily Mail readers are too easily brainwashed. He never said that about SB. He argued against stripping her of her citizenship and argued that she should return to the UK to face trial. I can't remember a time when he has demanded that 16yo's should vote. It seems unlikely. Perhaps I missed that.

Wasn't Begum also under 16 when she actually went to Syria and married her Daesh fighter husband? But I'm sure there's plenty of comparisons to draw between a young girl potentially groomed to join a terrorist death cult and to putting an X on a ballot paper. So long as we can blame or use it against Corbyn we should just rehash rubbish, disingenuous right wing talking points.

With respect to the original post, I don’t think anyone need worry about Jeremy Corbyn or Dianne Abbott.

Hobbies interests: I like to surround myself with socially inept people and have tried to avoid mixing with anyone of any intellectual gravitas.
Personal statement: I am sure I would be a very good PM for Britain, firstly by instituting a Government of perpetuity, that way we do not need to spend any more money on silly elections. I would then hand over complete control of the UK firstly to the EU and then as that develops within ten years a World Government overseen by the UN. The UN as you will be pleased to know, has 164 members, of these 20 are classified as fully democratic (Democracy Index), 55 are regarded as flawed democracies, with the remainder not being regarded as democratic. So we should be in safe hands!! Finally, all of my socialist friends and I will live a life of luxury while we rape and pillage the lifestyles of the wealthy who worked for their money and created thousands of jobs for the economy.
Vote Corbyn, you know it makes sense !

Well it made me chuckle.

Yea it's good to chuckle at those respecting the deaths of almost 50 Palestinians bombed by Israeli military, many civilians, and try to make cynical political gain from it.

This is the issue with modern political discourse. If you've made up your mind about someone, there is little need or motive for context or even truth. You just carry on believing what you want to believe and not holding your own political parties, policies and politicians to the same standard. Total lack of critical thinking from the likes of sleeveless et al. But these are the types who have "just about had enough of experts".

Are you not a Guardian reader, Greensleeves? The account of how Corbyn was present at the ceremony in respect of 4 members of Black September is available.

He and Labour confirmed the last time the media and Tories felt it was relevant a distraction), that they were there as a mark of respect for those that lost their lives in 1985 and not those responsible for the Munich killings.

It's election time, the old, well-worn anti-corbyn stories come back into the narrative very conveniently.

Tory way. When you are short of money you cut costs.
Labour way. When you are short of money you carry on spending.
Which makes more sense?

The Labour way Nancy. That way you simulate the economy to get future growth. The government is mainly borrowing from taxpayers anyway. Maybe tax should be higher. Is that what you are suggesting?

Let's say we both want to go out for a drink tonight but neither of us has any money. I would stay home until I get paid whereas you would borrow money on the off chance you may be able to pay it back in the future.

Thatcher started this housekeeping analogy. Countries are not like households. In the situation you describe it would be more accurate to say that I borrow money to invest or spend to create more money that I can use to buy a drink with.

Hmm..yeess, next time I bump into Jo I'll recommend you as a possible chancellor of the exchequer. Have you been taking lessons from Mark Carney? If you don't mind, I'll try that one out on the wife the next time I head off to the Dog and Ferret.
On 13 Nov 2019 at 7:02am Green Sleeves wrote:
Nevillman is correct, it's absurd and economically illiterate to compare an individual or household budget with how a countries economy operates. If we cut our spending and expenses as a household, our income/salary remains the same as income and expenditure are broadly independent from each other. However when a country cuts spending, income falls.

On 18 Nov 2019 at 6:58pm Tom Pain wrote:
I can't see it either! If all the households cut spending then their incomes would fall because their incomes depend on selling goods and services that would be in less demand. I find the economic illiteracy boot to be on the other foot. On the subject of literacy may I suggest that someone who writes "countries economy" should bear in mind the proverb about glasshouses and stones.

You're being obtuse. We weren't talking about ALL households (and you probably knew that already). We were talking about how when some economic dunderheads attempt to compare an individual persons household budget compared with that of the world's 6 largest economy (when attempting to argue for shrinking the state). Expenses and income are simply not anywhere nearly as intertwined. One could cut down on many expenses in their outgoings and yet their income would remain the same. This just isn't the same in a national budget.

Your penultimate sentence is so grammatically compromised it is impossible to understand. As to your use of the term dunderhead, allow me to refer you to my previous mention of stones and glasshouses.
On 21 Nov 2019 at 8:17pm Green Sleeves wrote:
Grammatical attacks, oh drat. You got me.

I have re-read that sentence that you're struggling to comprehend. It certainly could be better articulated and worded, but it still makes sense. Reducing your household budget expenses isn't likely to reduce your salary because it's independent from each other.
