    The right wing smears are beyond a joke. And people actually argue that our media isn't horrendously biased?

    Extreme left? Don't know what you're talking about OP......
    Using the same daft logic I suppose everyone who's ever visited Auschwitz is a Nazi as well. If not, what's your point?

    A politician goes to an event full of young politicians and suddenly its crime of the century. This nonsense is almost getting as bad as the Farage stuff. Its incredibly boring and just goes to show how dumb people are when it comes to believing whatever is printed in rags or online.

    I come from Coventry which will vote Labour for all eternity but live in a part of Scotland which has only seen Liberal, SNP and Tory MPs. I can tell you that the SNP were praying for a Liz Kendall to continue to peddle the 'red Tory' label. There are 40-50 seats up for grabs in Scotland which will make the task in England a good deal easier.

    Not just by the numbers, but because if Labour is strong up here it eliminates Tory scaremongering over an SNP coalition, which swayed surprisingly large numbers this year. It would also strengthen the general state of the union, which can't be a bad thing.
    I'm hoping for a Labour, SNP and Plaid Cymru coalition, possibly with the Lib Dems involved in one way or another. Either way, I hope it brings around the talk of devolution, a federal system, more localised investment as opposed to a London-centric model and the talk of proportional representation.

    I suspect your criticism comes more from a dislike of Corbyn than over a genuine aggrievement with the selection.
    Yes because the only reason a Labour supporter could be aggrieved over the selection of one of the party's most insane MPs (and that's saying something) to be shadow chancellor is because it's Corbyn doing the selecting.

    If couldn't possibly be because he's the type of nutcase to come out publicly supporting The IRAs bombings and shootings and managing to get himself sued for libel in an election campaign.

    Hes like George Galloway but without the charisma, the brains, the debating ability and the speech.

    I have no desire for anti-British parties to form part of a government. I hope the Lib Dems will come back and the impact of them not being in coalition is there for all to see. PR is a must though, I am no UKIP voter but to gain over 4 million votes and have just 1 MP to show for it while the SNP gain 56 MPs from 1.5 million votes is farcical.

    RF is complaining about the cabinet being unequal because women have been awarded 'inferior' posts. The whole point of the selection is that Corbyn does not sign up to certain areas of government being more important than the other. None of these appointments are guaranteed to last the whole term, and I include Corbyn's own position in that. If McDonnell proves too much of a liability he will go.

    Why do left wingers seem to support Islamic extremists? They have a tendency to defend extremists and always defend the side of the extremists in any incidence. What is their real agenda?

    I have nothing against Corbyn, he has his opinions on what makes the world tick and we have ours. I was actually quite expectant about his landing on the scene and what to expect over the next five years and it is a bit of a let down to feel, 48 hours into it, that he is not going to last the distance. I'm off to the bookies tomorrow to put at least a tenner on it.

    It's hard to explain so don't ask why. It just feels that way.

    Perhaps, but McDonnell is an old friend and in politics that always makes you eminently more qualified for a position.
    Yeah, just look at towel folder George Osborne - out of a nation of over 60 million, we have such a person running the finances

    There's nothing wrong with George (nee Gideon) Osborne, he is going to succeed Cameron and be PM if Corbyn is still about. He has an edge to him as well, will be an improvement.

    Nothing wrong with him apart from no qualifications other than being Dave's mate.

    He is his own man, considered a 'nutter' even by the Michael Foot camp. Labelled an 'extremist' by Livingstone, a fine emblem for the 'loony left' but I still wished him well because we need politics to liven up. Picture him as PM over here and Trump as president, if that didn't stimulate politics what would?

    But he's not going to make it, this stage is too big for him and his acolytes. Happened to Brown and it will happen again.

    Im sorry but have you seen who he's put into the two environment posts? If that's not something to be genuinely aggrieved about I don't know what is.

    Plus I have always always championed equality.

    We don't care, if he does the job. There is no such thing as 'qualifications to be Chancellor', being an MP is the only requirement and it is better to have them as mates than to have them fighting each other like Blair and Brown.

    Maybe more qualified candidates refused to join, maybe more qualified candidates are not present in the PLP at present. Scientists are a rarity in politics and as one myself I get your frustration but Corbyn has to work with the hand he's been dealt.

    Real champions of equality do not rely on quotas to achieve it.
