    Even though they are quite small at the moment?
    I vote based on policies and principles, not in terms of size

    If 'in touch' means blaming all our problems on the EU and immigrants, while saying nothing about the economic system which creates so much poverty and disillusionment then it's hardly an attractive position to be in.

    You're confusing 'in touch' with the line perpetuated by Murdoch and Dacre.

    Labour is real danger of losing a town like Stoke- on- Trent to UKIP because they refuse to acknowledge this. I fear for Labour if Corbyn and his protest group win in September.

    Corbyn is a Eurosceptic who cares passionately for workers' rights and prospects. In my book he is more in tune with the electorate of these areas than the centrists. Here in Coventry he is popular with voters because of his stances on these issues and because he is not seen as a careerist politician.

    The MP who resigned from the shadow cabinet however has been roundly criticised. Won't stop the likes of yourself acting like he is less appealing to voters in Stoke than Tristram ****ing Hunt.

    I don't give a damn about Corbyn, Labour or Hunt. It wasn't me saying it was a clip on BBC Sunday politics in the West Midlands. UKIP said that if Corbyn was leader into the next election they had a real chance of displacing Labour. They also had a clip of people being asked who they would vote for.

    Corbyn maybe popular in Coventry but then Coventry is **** (apart from Cheylesmore, Finham Green and Stivichall).

    Jeremy Pied Piper Corbyn presents a tangible risk to the security and sovereignty of the UK and related territories.
    I think Blair and all the other backers of the Iraq war did a much better job at making us all less secure.

    This is just media hype of a bit of trolling, not necessarily exclusive to Corbyn supporters, and certainly opposed by Corbyn.

    When the Blair Government used the army when it shouldn't at least they supported HAVING one.

    I'd rather debate whether a few battalions could be deployed.

    Better to be looking at it than for it .......

    I definitely think it might be exaggerated in order to get rid of him.
