    He's like a 6th form student that hasn't grown up.

    But a lot more calculatingly dangerous. An absolute danger to our country which is why he will never be P.M and won't even be contesting the next election.

    Please tell me you aren't serious.

    Corbyn's views on international relations are just warped.

    Who in their right mind would abandon all of our western allies?

    People criticise UKIP for wanting to leave Europe, but love Corbyn for wanting to abandon ALL of our western allies.

    How in any world does that work?
    when did he say that? ty

    I don't support bombing the ME either but stuff like disarming Trident is a bad idea esp. with threats like Russia
    I think - I'm no expert here, admittedly - that there are plenty of ideals Corbyn holds that he won't try to bring about. I don't think he'll try to remove TRIDENT. I think he might try to argue that taxpayer money is better spent on *not renewing it*, but frankly I think he's far more likely to compromise as Labour leader than he was as fairly anonymous backbencher.

    I agree that national security is an issue, but equally don't think that the government is currently taking the best steps to ensure that.

    why
    the current tory government is a threat to
    - our human rights
    - our privacy
    - my (and others) education
    - my family (my mothers primary income is DLA)
    - millions of other disabled peoples lives
    - our health service
    - safety of our land (allowing fracking to destroy it)
    - safety of our farmers livelihood
    - survival of millions of refugees

    possibly more but yeah its a great idea to scare the entire population of corbyn!

    Take the blindfold off. Amazes me how people can overlook some of the policies this guy has and the views he has expressed during his lifetime purely because he is left wing. They even attempt to take the moral high ground while doing so. Look at who he has appointed as his shadow chancellor ffs. An insult to the nation.

    It's no secret Corbyn wants to leave NATO, which would literally have no benefits whatsoever.

    What would he rather? Us buddy up with Putin?

    Ah the typical left wing response, screaming that other people are offended when actually we all know that lefties are the most oversensitive people in the UK. FYI people are allowed to have right wing ideas and disagree with you and he even said he's a leftie. I can see why half of Labour is resigning with all these extremists in lmfao. Brb pointing out hyperbole is "being offended".

    Also, you have to be really ****ing stupid to claim that size 20 can be healthy (I saw your posts on the body shaming thread, just LOL) and that saying otherwise is "body shaming"

    Yeah too right left wing people are sensitive. Too right we care about inequality and injustice. I don't see being sensitive as an insult, if it means I have compassion and empathy for other people.
    The issue of body shaming is completely separate to this. Maybe you misinterpreted, I didn't necessarily mean it was healthy, my line of argument is that it is literally NONE OF ANYONE'S BUSINESS.

    He's almost more isolationist than flipping UKIP...

    The point was that her post was obvious satire, not hyperbole, and the other poster was responding to her post as though it expressed opinions she actually held. It was parody, thus justifying the tone.

    Though I understand that our geopolitical position is hugely different to Switzerland, I think you could have chosen far worse examples of nations to which we might aspire to be like.

    No you're the one calling someone "****ing stupid", you sound much more offended than him :rofl: He was just pointing out your use of hyperbole to make a left wing point, despite your attempt to pass it off as just satire.

    FYI I don't think Corbyn is dangerous but denying that you were trying to push the opposite viewpoint makes you look silly. Satire can be used to try and argue something as well as just be funny, and you obviously were. It can also use hyperbole. L'Allegro

    Also you did lmao, this was your post. In b4 edit

    People at size 20 can be healthy, just like people who are size 6 can be healthy. We're all different.
    You need to stop making ridiculous posts and then trying to backpedal. I'm out.

    I don't know how to feel with Corbyn. I agree with some of his economic policies but then he has a large number of insane ones. Shrinking the military, scrapping Trident, abandoning NATO. I believe we should have an army and military that is ample enough for defence of the nation and its territories to maintain sovereignty. I do however agree that we should stop pretending to be a major military power getting involved in every foreign conflict. We should keep the alliances but not so willingly jump into expensive conflicts that only serve to destabilise many regions around the world. In regards to defence, yes Corbyn is insane.

    yeah i dont really agree with leaving nato (unless there is an EU defence force to replace it)

    however, remember policies dont mean they will come into action if he was elected, (there is a long parliamentary process)

    however, i would say the rest of his policies out weight the one or two more extreme ones (and if you look at the first link you posted, the majority of people agree with all but on of the policies stated)

    Yeah, this is the salient point. Corbyn's positions will no doubt be tempered now he's at the forefront of political discourse. That's not to say he'll become bland or that he'll prevaricate: rather, he'll recognize what is politically possible and what isn't.

    None of those diminish our 'general security' (in fact, a few enhance it), which is what you alleged the Tories threatened.

    Would you like to try again?

    security - not an in defence/national security my families security, not from invasion, but to have a stable, secure life - (i used the word general to try and emphasise this, sorry for the confusion) but there is more than one type of security and its a governments job to protect all of these
