    The OP is a special sort of idiot.

    Corbyn is Eurosceptic but simply held the Remain position to appease Blairites in his camp who would have otherwise tried to force him out.

    This is why Corbyn didn't campaign passionately for remain because deep down he wanted the UK to leave and always has done. The last thing the UK needs is to remove Corbyn and to reinstate a corporate loving Blairite who will stab us in the back. If that happens it will be a complete disaster.

    We must work with Corbyn and the unions to take back power from the disgusting neoliberals who have contributed to rising inequality across Europe whilst making the rich richer at our expense.

    Corbyn is our only hope for a democratic socialist UK that puts people before corporate profit.
    You people are traitors. You don't stand for true left wing values. Corbyn will be ousted next week, it's all but confirmed, good luck you communist joke. Time to bring Blair back

    Why should Labour support the EU? Labour is supposed to be the worker's party and I'm pretty sure cheap Labour from Europe is anything but helpful for those UK citizens in low-skill, low-paid jobs.

    This referendum really confused me, in that "left-wing" Labour supporters (in general) were so pro EU immigration, when the people Labour identify with are the ones who'll suffer from it.
    The rich Tory business owners must save so much money from hiring cheap EU workers as opposed to UK workers :lol:

    On second thoughts it didn't confuse me, seeing as left wing is now synonymous with identity politics more then anything else.

    If Corbyn is luke warm for the EU or wants to leave, he should have said so when the referendum was called and excused himself from campaigning for Remain. It was dishonest of him to lead the Labour party for the duration of the Remain campaign when he didn't want it but knew the rest of the Labour party did.

    I can't see any reason to trust Corbyn now and he should do the honourable thing and resign.

    Jeremy Corbyn failed miserably to galvanise Labour voters to the remain side.

    This radical left wing filth represents nothing left wing. He is an extremist.

    He should have campaigned immensely for the EU. He should not have said he was only 6/10 or 7/10 in support of the EU, he should have said 10/10. He should have expressed his deep passion for the EU, instead he claimed the EU needs much reform, disgraceful. He should have told the population the truth and that the EU does not need reform, that it has always worked for the people.

    Corbyn lost us this referendum. His past comments about the EU stuck with him, he should have separated himself from them completely, said he didn't really believe what he said and was mistaken.

    WHERE WAS CORBYN'S PASSION FOR THE EU?

    WHERE WAS HIS DEFENCE FOR ITS RECORD?

    WHERE WAS HIS SUPPORT FOR WHAT THE EU IS? NOT WHAT IT COULD BE.

    CORBYN IS A TRAITOR, HE MUST GO AND WE MUST BRING TRUE BELIEVERS OF THE EU INTO THE LABOUR LEADERSHIP LIKR MANDLESON AND BROWN
    You can't blame Corbyn for you not informing yourself before you voted.

    Most of our unskilled immigration is from outside the EU, while EU immigration makes a net contribution of 30% to the economy. EU membership creates jobs.

    The campaign on both sides were quite frankly disgusting; they wanted to scare us, and in doing so lied to us.

    Throughout the whole debate Jeremy Corbyn was, tbh, the only person who was talking any sense. Does the EU need improvement? Well, yes (obviously?). But, he gave his honest opinion, which is that he believes we will be worse off without it (don't know if you saw his talk on Sky nearly a week ago- you should have, it was great). Honesty is a lonely world, but at least we got it from him.

    No, his campaign wasn't particularly passionate, but it was informative and he never made anything up to try to scare the public into voting, like every other "passionate" campaigner seemed to be doing.

    I hardly think that's a logical reason to kick him out...

    Does anyone one else feel that the way Corbyn handled the election was, in fact, a perfect example of how a leader of a political party should do so? Make the relevant facts and their opinion accessible and understandable, then let the public make a decision. That would be democracy. The fear mongering, divisive and deceitful media show put on by the leave campaign may have been effective, but it was also deplorable. To condemn Corbyn for not lowering himself to their level seems nonsensical. Only those MPs who's constituency voted 'remain' have any right to complain, and I still don't feel the blame lies at Corbyn's door

    no idea why people would think corbyn should step down over this .... He still has the support of the membership and my support and until he proves otherwise, i still see as one of the best candidates for labour leadership at the current time.

    labour has been central so long, that when they start to become left wing, its seen as radical left wing, what a ****ign joke, if you support left wing politics you'll understand that corbyn is not a radical but rather has moved from the central position labour was in a few years ago.

    The EU doesn't need improvement though, Jeremy Corbyn should have made this point. He should have said he 100% supported the EU so his supporters 100% supported it too. He is a disgrace.

    Did Blair say the EU was bad? No. Did Blair say it needs reform? No. Did Blair defend the EU's record? Yes. Did Blair passionately campaign for the EU? Yes. We need a leader like Blair not Corbyn
