    the have stopped in the first countries - Pakistan have taken 2.6M, Jordan 2.4M, Lebanon 1.1M
    they cannot stay in the first country they arrive in as the resources there are already stretched, not to mention these countries have more hostile attitudes to refugees - it is not safe for them to stay there, and it is not fair of us to expect the countries closets to there to take them all - being a part of the EU the whole of Europe should share the strain
    I don't disagree. But taking them in has nothing to do with security like you were originally trying to argue.

    His views are extreme, and he only appeals to the working class and disillusioned youth (ie. the majority of people on TSR), who believe the government is against them and that they 'deserve' more. His foreign policy is nonsensical, and at home he wants to renationalise everything for whatever reason, take more money from the rich and just hand it to the poor, because why should people who have worked hard for their money get to keep it? He's a joke. The only hope we have is that he has isolated such a large part of society, and attracted groups that statistically won't even show up to vote for him.

    No, No, no and No. It is simply the neoliberal establishment consensus conducting their bullying of anyone who doesn't support this perverse creed and what it is doing to our country.

    Yes, but the government's duty is first and foremost to the security of it's citizens, not the whole world.

    Just demonstrably untrue:

    -Also, sixty percent of people support his rent control policy (for example). The working class do not make up sixty percent of the polled electorate, nor do those of 18-25.

    -Bankers bonuses are the first and easiest way to prove that wealth earned is not always wealth deserved.
    -No-one is suggesting full egalitarianism. But it's equally silly to pretend that wealth is being earned disproportionate to social value. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/8410489.stm

    He's also anti-Zionist.

    Maybe that's why you think he's a dangerous radical.

    To be fair, supporting and praising holocaust deniers and terrorists is quite dangerous and radical.

    It's entirely undesirable, but I still think it pales in comparison to selling arms to countries that the UN acknowledge commit crimes against children - which our government currently happily do. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...s-8711794.html

    I'm not saying you're on the right/accusing you in particular: I know nothing of you. But I will still point out that those on the right who hyperventilate over who Corbyn's shared platforms with while remaining silent about the Tory record here are just ethically inconsistent ideologues.

    He's a Republican.
    He wants to leave NATO.
    He wants the union and our overseas territories gone.

    Yes OP, he's a dangerous radical.
    He's not going to leave NATO
    He agrees with a United Ireland but is not going to give it back. Also our union makes it sound like you mean Scotland as well and he doesnt want them to leave.

    Stop oversimplifying.
