    If Corbyn remains as leader, I will vote for Labour.Otherwise I'll flip a coin between Green and UKIP.
    You wouldn't support any other leader?

    No. If Corbyn leaves, it represents a "coup" by the MPs against the members of the party.

    I cannot envision a labour party I would vote for, that is accepted by the majority of current MPs.

    Fan would be too strong (ideologically i'm more an Osbourne/Hunt person although the later is corrupt as hell) but she is very acceptable to me and so far i'm pleased. If it's Corbyn vs May in 2020, i expect a massacre.

    If a general election was called now I would vote labour purely because I know a few of the (probable) candidate and they are all militantly anti corbyn)> if i didnt know i'd probably vote Lib Dem- unless labour did something like abolish faith schools which would more or less guarantee my vote.

    I fear it could be too if Corbyn remains leader.

    If the Labour Party become united once again, will you be voting for them in the next GE?


    If corbyn is still leader, No you want a strong commanding leader not a do gooder. We would be in a much better position if he died instead of John Smith all those years ago, Smith would have been Primeminister and we would still be on Blair and still a labour government instead we have Jeremy Corbyn who should leave labour and join the Greens- he is nearer to them on the political spectrum.

    There will still be enough morons voting Tory and then wondering where all their public services and schools have gone to negate whoever is Labour leader in 2020. Our generation will be the first to be worse off than the one which preceded it, does anybody here really think that Theresa 'Snooper's Charter' May wants to fix that? We can either keep believing tabloid headlines calling Corbyn a Marxist or we can look at the substance and the record.

    I will likely never vote for Labour ever again, due to left wing hardliners hijacking the party and turning it on its head. The Labour Party is an utter joke now, taken over by a bunch of left wing looneys, Marxists and communists. They are always fighting amoungst each other, rather then being a viable opposition shadow government, that is virtually unelectable now.

    Well actually they are, if you care to look at their membership and their leadership.

    I'm not necessarily agreeing with the person you're quoting (at least on the part you're pulling them up on; they're right about the party becoming a joke), but of a matter of interest, how would you describe elements like Momentum et al?

    I view people in Momentum as concentrating too much on Corbyn the individual than his ideas. I get contacted by them despite not being a member and I'm not comfortable with what they do, but I don't think of even them as communists. Let's be clear, democratic socialists are not on a par with Stalin/Mao/Castro etc.
