    He's anti-semitic because he walks funny.
    So... you don't think it's anti-semitic to call for the death of all Jews worldwide?

    So you would turn up to a wedding in a tracksuit?



    What do I care? If you're silly enough to follow him what difference does it make to me? You overrate the importance of your views in my consideration of these issues
    They dont look like tracksuits to me.... And no perhaps not, but that's me. Im not Corbyn.

    Lol and you think your own views are important? You think he even cares what you think? and no Im not a "Corbyn follower" As I said, he's a bit too socialist for me.

    So you're saying it does matter how someone dresses? Why? Aren't you being totally superficial?

    Why should it matter whether someone wears a tracksuit to a wedding?
    Because corbyn turned up in a ****ing suite. Stop talking about trackies.

    Me personally, I really couldn't care what people wore. I'm just stuck in human society where there are certain expectation because people are hierarchical morons, I have to go along with it unless I want to be shunned. So personally it shouldn't matter, but it does. The only time when it is important what you dress like as far as I am concerned is when you are in a job where that fills a functional purpose, like a paramedic. People need to know who you are.

    I can't believe I am wasting my time with this. Go obsessively examine his crotch for an undone zipper or something.

    Why? You must be incredibly superficial to say it's inappropriate to wear a hoodie at such an occasion.

    The underlying point is this; you dress appropriately for the occasion, and you come neatly turned out. It shows respect.

    On dressing appropriately, while I wouldn't personally dress that way I won't fault him. It's the latter point, being neatly turned out, that is relevant here. By not even bothering to do up your tie, it looks disfainful. It looks like he can't even be arsed.

    And it's bizarre given he turned up to the House of Commons the day before and the day after in a nice suit. And at PMQs he had his tie tied up. So why couldn't he be bothered at such a sombre and important event?
    There's a fairly major difference between a hoodie and something I don't think looks bad.

    It's not about appearance per se, it's about what his lack of effort says about his attitude.

    Do you think it would be superficial to not give someone a job because they turned up to a job interview in a tracksuit? Would it be superficial, or would it be a reasonable consideration in terms of what it says about their mindset, and respect (or lack thereof) for the occasion?
    OK if you want to go down this route
    In my current job, I got the job over the phone. Boom.

    There are plenty of things to criticise Corbyn for, but people are instead focusing on him not singing the national anthem and the clothes that he wears? Seriously?

    He looks fine, and the national anthem thing is a pathetic non story.

    True, I used to be a bit like that with clothes (i'm still mildly self conscious) but as long as I like it I don't care now.

    I would happily be seen in public in that mildly mismatched suit though.
    yeah i wish i could be more like that

    ahh see i could never have a navy jacket and black trousers, as it happens i have a navy an black suit and i am perpetually anxious of wearing the wrong jacket with the wrong trousers :afraid:

    He looked the part at PMQ's!
    Which begs the question as to why he couldn't be arsed at such a sombre and important national memorial for our honoured war dead.

    This is not some superficial fashion obsession. It's fundamentally about a leader who appears to be so disdainful of our war dead that he couldn't even be bothered to turn up neatly attired.

    Not bothering to do up his tie just makes him look like a surly sixth-former who's at an event he was forced to go to by his Mum

    Yah exactly.I personally dont support 60% taxes... What he's being criticised for is pathetic. What it does show with the national anthem thing, is that he sticks to his guns and isn't a hypocrite. I admire him for that.

    I'm bringing up tracksuits because it underlines the fundamental point; that it does matter what you wear. It's not about some crude or superficial fashion obsession. And I couldn't care less whether he turned up in an expensive Ede & Ravenscroft suit or something from M&S. What matters is that you are neatly turned out, and respectfully attired. His undone tie and top button simply makes him look like a surly teenager

    I might not be a fashion expert, but I don't think he's wearing a tracksuit in that photo.

    So.... not bothering to do up your tie is a matter of principle? If so, why did he do up his tie at PMQs?

    In any case, he has confirmed he will sing the national anthem in future. So is he a hypocrite now or what?

    His suits don't fit him that well and yes he does look shabby. But oh well. The Sun though keep drilling on about the way he dresses. At least he's wearing a suit.

    I guess it comes easier to some than others. I wouldn't worry massively to be honest nobody really notices nor cares.

    The fundamental point which you have conceded is that it does matter what you wear. You seem to understand it would appear lazy or disdainful to turn up to a wedding in a hoodie, and thus you don't because you don't want your friends/family to think you are disdainful of their special day.

    I'm simply applying this point to Corbyn's attendance here. I don't care whether he wears an old, ill-fitting suit that looks a bit shabby. I literally don't give a **** about that. What does matter is that he is neatly turned out. In this respect he completely failed; he couldn't even be bothered to do up his tie, and the impression it gives is similar to the impression one would give if they turned up to a wedding in a hoodie.

    The reason it is magnified is because he is the leader of the opposition and he was attending a memorial for our honoured war dead; a service very sombre and respectful in character. By turning up looking like he'd some straight from a night on the town, he looked disdainful and up himself
