I'd understand the government having to pick up the tab if it was the one who took the decisions, but these are private individuals who made the decisions and who needed bailing out.(Original post by MatureStudent36)
The bank bailout was required as the failure of them doesn't bare thinking about. But that's bailout was predominantly a loan and guarantees.
If the government is going to be the one left holding the **** bucket, it might as well own that **** bucket.
Damn it man! The UK system is a party system. Usually, one votes for the colour the candidate is wearing on election day.The government does listen to what it's people want. Otherwise they wouldn't get elected.
Corbyn wants people to be energized about policies, not party colours.
I thought everyone wanted Corbyn elected. He seems to have cross-party support (i.e: the Tories want him, Labour want him, and the SNP/Lib Dems probably want him).I think you're falling into the trap of believing that Corbyn and his supporters represent the general consensus of the population. I think you'll find that they're don't.
For different reasons, maybe but it seems everyone wants Corbyn.

That aside, she is correct that Corbyn supporters have been throwing around a lot of anti-Semitic poison recently. Mensch's error, bone-headed as it was, while attempting to expose this does not make it any less true. The fact that you are implying this, OP, makes you look like just as much of a retard as she is quite frankly.
