    I dont even wear a tie, or do my top button up, Maybe it's cos of people like you?
    Nice dodge of the question

    Corbyn has said he will sing the anthem in the future. Is he a hypocrite or not? You implied that not doing up his tie at the service was some principled act of rebellion (:lol: how juvenile). He did do up his tie at PMQs. So is he a hypocrite now or not?

    As for not wearing a tie, what do I care if you can't be arsed to dress respectfully at your own family's funerals / weddings etc. What does matter to me is the impression the man who is asking to be considered a potential Prime Minister gives when he goes to a service for our honoured war dead and appears like he can't even be arsed

    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?
    You are misinterpreting it his outfits show to me that he is a person who will do things on the basis of his own principles and not simply be bullied by society to do things the way most people expect them to be done.Society expected the Labour leader to be more right wing and society expected the Labour leader to wear more smarter clothes, he goes against the general norms and is showcasing a new vision for the country.

    I am sick of people being obsessed with uniform or smart clothes, the reason you think a suit with matching jackets and trousers with tie and top button done is because rich and important people/celebrities have worn these clothes at important events and you have been brought up to believe these clothes are what is smart, if people kept wearing similar to what Corbyn wore and you were brought up to believe that was smart then you would say the other peoples clothes were shabby and disrespectful and showed a lack of effort.

    Also, I think that the wearing of suits and smart clothes is really a sort of elitism as poor people can't afford such clothes and they are usually used to identify people of higher status.With Corbyn being left wing and socialist then he would not want to be involved in the elitism that smart clothes really represent in society, a lot of his supporters may not be able to afford the sort of clothes that the other people were wearing in that picture and so he could be seen as representing his supporters.

    I don't think there is any real scientific evidence that some clothes can be smarter than others and that its all down to opinion really and most people think suits are smart due to being brainwashed by society.People should wear what they want to wear and try to invent their own styles, dress codes and uniform remove individuality and force people to conform to societal norms and not be themselves which is very bad, this is why all dress codes should be banned within reason and people should be accepted on the basis of what they do and say and not how they look.Dress codes can put huge pressure on poor people with smart clothes being made really expensive by businesses since uniform is compulsory for school children and smart clothes are expected on several occasions, the employer shouldn't reject someone on the basis of how they look because the applicant might be really poor and might not have the money to buy expensive clothes.

    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
    My comment is a suit is appropriate a hoodie is not.

    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.
    And if he'd have sung it, the same people would be attacking him for being a hypocrite by signing about god rescuing a monarch when he's a republican (and atheist/agnostic if I remember correctly, but don't quote me on that).

    I just don't like it when people debating something completely miss a good target, and instead make stupid arguments when there are plenty of decent arguments to be made. Not just with Jeremy Corbyn. Criticise what needs to be criticised, instead of distracting attention from important good quality discussion with ridiculous BS.

    It has nothing to do with wearing smart clothes. As I said, I literally couldn't care less whether he wears an expensive Saville Row suit or something from M&S. What does matter is that he is neatly turned out, not looking like he's just come from a night on the town.

    Presumably you would be okay with wearing a tracksuit to a wedding? Is it superficial to think it would be disrespectful to do that?

    Oh dear. I think you're confused. Perhaps you can point out how bothering to do up your tie is the preserve of the rich? Or is it that people doe up their tie to look neat, because that's what you do? What is interesting is that you seem to think middle and working class people are inherently slovenly

    In that sense he would be I guess, but equally it looks like he's only doing it cos of people like you...
    You were talking about work a second ago, and if I was at a funeral, I'd be wearing "shalwar kameez" and not a suit. That'd be a lot MORE respectful...

    He wasn't wearing tracksuit bottoms. He was wearing trousers. He was perhaps unshaved, but he's usually unshaved..

    My comment is a suit is appropriate a hoodie is not.
    And my comment is that it is appropriate to look neat. Do you disagree with that? Do you think it would be appropriate for him to turn up with yoghurt stains all down his front and not having taken a shower?

    Turning up neatly attired is important. It is respectful. Whatever suit he wears, however fashionable or unfashionable (I couldn't care less), he should be neat and clean. The tie unbuttoned is appropriate at the end of a work day, after a long meeting, or something like that. He turned up looking like that. Bad form

    So he is not some sainted man of principle. He immediately changed what he was doing to come across better in the media. Based on that, he is a hypocrite if we are to consistently apply your standards

    if I was at a funeral, I'd be wearing "shalwar kameez" and not a suit. That'd be a lot MORE respectful...
    Maybe for your particular ethnicity. It's pretty laughable to claim it's inherently more respectful that an appropriate suit at a funeral for Anglo-Saxon / Westerners

    Fine then. I dont even support the guy. What are you trying to get at

    There were Asians who fought for the UK, were there not? At any rate, at something like that, yes I'd perhaps "suit up" but plenty of people wouldn't.

    It's nonsense like this that will only serve to bolster his position. The likes of Farage and Corbyn rely on their individuality and rebel attitude, so any personal attack only highlights that further. Attack the man's policies, for Christ's sake. All of this childish nonsense is the very thing Corbyn has alluded to for the last few months and you're just giving him more ammunition.

    What do you think I am someone who follows everything Corbyn says as gospel. The fact is although I disagree with him on some policies he is the closest to my beliefs and the only person I felt provided any real opposition to the tories.

    If this was Burnham or possibly even Cameron being criticised I'd point out it was nonsensical.

    That's such an illogical remark I'm going to ignore it completely.

    This is not some superficial consideration of fashion. I was brought up to understand that being appropriately dressed and neatly turned out shows respect for the occasion. Dressing appropriately, at a wedding for example, shows respect for the couple and that you care enough about them to dress respectfully.

    This has far less to do with what he actually wore and far more to do with what it says about his mindset. The fact he couldn't even be bothered to do up his tie at a serious and sombre national memorial for war dead? It screams disdain
    He turned up suited and booted, did he not?
    Oh no, not his tie. He may as well have flipped the Vets the bird right there and then!

    If you've got an issue with Corbyn's politics then enter a political debate, but this hysterical and constant scrutinising of every detail of him has got to stop. And that goes for all of you.

    At best it's amusing, at worst it's retarded. And come to think of it, there isn't even really a middle ground. Baseless ad homs.
