    According to an Ipsos Mori poll tonight Corbyn's approval rating (potential pool of voters) is 31% and Labour are 9% worse than this time last parliament (Ipsos had a Labour lead of 7% vs 2% Tory lead this time).

    Do the left of the party still stand by the Comrade.

    That is a very interesting question actually. A poll has recently been set up in our subforum to find out and I will let you know what the results of that are.

    From what I also saw of that poll it suggests Corbyn is more popular than Cameron, is seen as more Prime Ministerial than Miliband was, and that the Tories are becoming a laughing stock on the economy. So I don't really see a reason to change my opinion on Corbyn yet, especially as he just managed to get the Government to back the motion to support taking the NHS out of TTIP (if TTIP even still manages to go through)

    Corbyn's net ratings are not as bad but his approval level is still equally awful (the difference being that Cameron does not intend to contest another election), in a FPTP system your net ratings mean jack since its your approval ratings which will contain your likely voters.

    The economy poll actually still shows an approval rating of 42% for the government, that's still a strong pool of voters.

    TTIP will go through since it's the Tories that push for it in the EU, it's the French who are slowing it down.

    Re: TTIP

    It doesn't sit right with me to give corporations the right to sue governments if their policies affect the corporation's profit making ability.

    I don't support TTIP, I just about barely understand it. I have listened to lectures on it, from both sides of the argument, but it was all a bit overwhelming. My initial reaction, and the one that I've kept, is skeptical of it though.

    It would depend on how policies which prevent profit making are defined. It could be defined as protectionist measures for example in which case we have already to similar measures in the EU.

    I tend to support TTIP given how large its scope is (it's not just a trade agreement but a step towards expanding the single market). Nothing i've heard so far suggests that US firms will be doing things that the EU firms are not aloud to do.

    TTIP failed ages ago, to be added to the pile of both EU and US trade deals that will be going on for decades with no talks actually happening and only still being on record for the sake of saying they're happening.

    Unless they've had drastic ideological changes that I was unaware of, neither of these individuals are Labourites. Use the bar next time
