    In my language we call that a Blairite, glad to see some people still want progressive politics
    'Blairite' is an overused buzzword that Corbyn's fans use for anyone they don't agree with.

    I'm not even a Labour voter.

    He's driving this country further to the right, the Tories wouldn't get away with half the stuff they're doing now if it wasn't for how feckless and untrustworthy the opposition is. Yet the Corbynistas swear that he's shifted the debate over to the left, utterly delusional!

    Tony Blair was the most successful Labour leader of the modern generation, someone like him would run rings around May, under his leadership the minimum wage was introduced, over a million children lifted out of poverty, but you think he's the problem.


    Tell me what Corbyn's achievements are? Nothing.

    I think it probably was overcrowded, but as people got off at different stops, that's when it became more available?

    That seems plausible until you look at this.

    He got his seat long before the train made its first stop.

    It would be funny if he wasn't handing the country to the Tories unopposed.

    Despite the comedy value for them a lot of Tories still admit that it's bad for democracy not to have a strong opposition.

    He campaigned for Remain didn't he. He loves foreigners and immigration he's Corbyn! Fringing new Labour isn't he? Corbin is the captain of the ship, sailing the Labour Party into the abyss.

    He was a Eurosceptic for years and suddenly went full reverse in the blink of an eye. That's why his half-arsed campaign wasn't remotely convincing.

    He's a politician none of them are convincing, it's their job to lie to the nation.

    Haha.

    Interesting how the proverbial "man of the people" went to a selective school and hasn't ever had a job in the real world.

    He's just a wishy washy lefty do-gooder, from the same stock as the Tories and cut from the same cloth, only difference is he wants to let everyone and anyone into Britain not for cheap labour, but because he's a lefty extremist. The Labour Party is finished, Britains a one party state now unfortunately. Hopefully UKIP can grasp the initiative and convince the masses that ukip is the real people's party of Great Britain.

    Corbyn is just dangerous as far as I can see, which goes for many of his followers and fellow socialists. They will destroy our already curbed free speech.

    I'm against Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader and will not vote for him in any forthcoming elections.

    However, even I think this train fiasco thing has gone on for way too long given what it is. Arguing over whether seats were reserved or not just strikes me as really puerile stuff and you have to admit most of that has come from Branson's side rather than Corbyn's. Granted, Corbyn and his team obviously didn't think this through well at all, and this stunt - seats free or not - would have always been pretty futile regarding the electorate out there who don't want to see him in No. 10. Can you honestly imagine any previous leader of this country doing the same thing?

    Nevertheless, it just strikes me as such a nothing story. I mean it's true that seats are sometimes occupied on journeys across the country - he didn't need to sit on the floor like some moral sage to prove it but the point remains valid. I feel that this is unfortunately drawing attention away from the real issues with Corbyn.

    You like me are trying to restore the positivity in the term blairite, honestly he (Corbyn) achieved nothing that will benefit our lives lol but I was just pointing out that the centrist/third way is based on the Blair model in this country. I think Tony would've torn the Cameron government to SHREDS, he would've turned their divisions into huge stunts, instead Corbyn has allowed them to unite while his side splits apart. I'd also like to say he isn't the most successful labour leader in modern time, the most successful of all time if we go by impact and general election victories.

    yeah he has a good sense of humour tbh, can't imagine theresa may cracking a joke, david cameron was bad enough
    May's hilarious! Haven't you seen her speech destroying Corbyn after the Labour resignation spree? I can't remember the last time my sides hurt so much from laughing.

    Anti-semites, blairites and tradition corbyn esque boomers still stuck in the 60's with socialist ideals tearing the party to pieces.

    Hilarious in the same way that AIDS is hilarious. The song in Team America is great, but actually if you think seriously about it it's awful.

    I can't find a seat on this crowded train, uh-oh spaghettios

    Oh, that Jezza is hilarious!

    We should honour the sacrifices of Irish Terrorists and I oppose the bilateral peace process in favour of appeasing murderers.

    Ah.
