    I subscribe to prospect and opened it yesterday to find this piece:

    http://www.prospectmagazine.co.uk/fe...-never-grew-up

    For me, that line “He just says what is in his head… which is also the most pungent critique of him” absolutely nails it.

    What does everything think? And about that line in particular? (Would be particularly interested to hear from people who disagree, though of course interested in all comments!

    And most people do say what is in their interests. The only difference is Jeremy Corbyn isn't afraid to complain about poverty and inequality while stamping on the toes of all the lobbyists.

    At least you know what you get with Corbyn, even if you don't like it.

    With the Tories, well the lies and deceit is endless.

    You want somebody who fits this description to negotiate with other world leaders? Are you simple?

    As it happens I don't believe that's true but if you believe it so and still want him as PM then I'd actually be impressed if you could tie your own shoe laces.

    Considering how Corbyn is a eurosceptic, unilateral disarmament supporter and anti-monarch kinda guyI don't really think he sticks to his values. Sure, he's the vice chairman but he doesn't control his party or push on any of these issues as hard as he should.

    He understands that the population of the UK isn't a bunch of hardcore Socialists so he is playing his cards right.

    If only his supporters on TSR would grasp this. Would save a lot of headaches.
