    no, just no kangaroos are marsupials not rodents....

    Cavy definition = any of several short-tailed or tailless South American rodents of the family Caviidae, as the guinea pig, capybara, or agouti.
    Ah okay... I did a Google search and saw a kangaroo

    Labour leaders don't have a good history on foreign policy
    I'm not sure about that.

    MacDonald's first political act was to recognise the USSR and everyone else followed. He wasn't in government long enough in 1924 to capitalise on this.

    Really the only stains on Attlee's foreign policy were the disorderly disengagement from India and Palestine. The start of the cold war, NATO, the Security Council, the independent deterrent, German re-armament, Malaya and the Far East Empire and Korea were all successful.

    Wilson's record is less successful but Callaghan's was okay. The stain on Blair's record was the failure to provide challenge to the Americans about what to do next with Afghanistan and Iraq. Did Brown have a foreign policy?

    I don't necessarily agree with Corbyn's foreign policy(Labour leaders don't have a good history on foreign policy) but the idea that somehow it is Britain keeping the russians at bay is ridiculous.
    Not Britain, NATO. Britain is a big player in NATO, along with France and the US.

    Putin will never attack a nato country. Latvia,Lithuania and Estonia, all share borders with Rus and have never been invaded. Georgia and Ukraine, which also share borders, have.

    Withdrawing from nato would be disasterous, cutting defence spending any further would be bad and giving up Trident would be stupidity.

    Tbh I don't really care about politics.

    I don't agree with a lot of what he says like stuff about trident etc. If he is what labour wants then they have him.

    Let the character assassination by the right... Commence (/continue)!
    Well the Conservatives had already been doing this a bit, but I was sent an email today saying he's a threat to national security and believes in X/Y/Z misrepresented position.

    If you're wondering why I get Conservatives emails, someone with a similar name accidentally signed me up and they keep using different email addresses for things so I can't stop them all getting through - this was the first one I've had in about a year.

    I think it's great for democracy in this we now have two main parties who are clearly different.

    Not of this fighting on a pin head of centreism.

    I also think The Tories have to up there game. They won't get away with the same boring rhetoric they have for the last 5 years.

    The Tories have issues themselves. Europe is obviously splitting them. They will have a leadership contest in probably 2018.

    They do not want an Oxbridge educated career politican to dictate to them what is best for them and their families...
    I think that's a bit unfair. Some people got in off their own backs, if people are aware of that, it would probably play in their favour.

    Absolutely overwhelmed and proud that Jeremy Corbyn is Labour's next leader with almost 60% of the vote. He honestly deserves to win as he's a straightforward talking politician who's honest and has something different to offer. #JezWeDid #Inspirational
