    He is everything you guys want. He is left wing and supports a left wing system of governence. Why would you not vote for him. He voices the same concerns as you people?

    Some of his policies regarding the military situation are controversial such as the scrapping trident and no bombing of syria were unpopular with members of his own party and the public

    If they vote for a popular party like Labour, they'll lose their special snowflake status.

    Because there are still too many rightists (or 'moderates' as the media calls them) in the party, and he keeps consulting them over policy to please the media/corporations/retards. The thing is however accommodating he is, he's still going to get painted as Charmain Mao, so he may as just as just go full leftist and send them to the gulag.

    I agree with him on some things but there are 2 things which mean I would never vote for him;

    1. He is a Statist. The State is a vehicle of our oppression not a savior from it and 2. He thinks the British electoral system is either ) a fit for purpose or b) foolishly thinks it's capable of change.

    He calls terrorist groups 'friends' and associates himself with twisted organisations that promote anti-Semitic and just plain sick ideologies.

    I like a lot of Corbyn's ideas and policies. Not all of them, but a lot of them. As a green, I am undecided whether I would vote Labour in 2020. It depends on how much control he has over the parliamentary party, most of whom I find repulsive.

    Most people consider the 'moderates' centre-left/left.

    How would that explain Green Party supporters not turning to him? :laugh:

    I have quite a few Green friends who are having the same conflicion, so you're not alone.

    I get what you mean, though.

    the absence of a state quickly degenerates into the purest form of capitalism, as does anything which strips back state power (assuming you don't mean 'oh yeah lets add lots of economic regulation but remove the minor state interference in social matters').

    The Lib dems dont really exist- there just happens to be a confederation of social democrats that happen to support PR and are more socially liberal. Oh and have a loopy evangelist as leader.

    So now the lib dems hold a global monopoly on liberalism?

    That is actually the best summery of the LibDems that I have ever heard. Well done.

    The liberal democrats are left wing and the sort of policies they desire are what Jeremy Corbyn is offering

    I have no doubt that Corbyn is more socially liberal than anyone in the Parliamentary LibDems.
