    Problem 1 Argentina have a illegitimate claim to a land
    Problem 2 the prime minister shouldn't befriend people who will kill British citizens
    No I meant Jeremy Corbyn.

    Britain's claim is just as good as Argentina's. The only reason that we still have the Falkland's is that at the time (1833) we had a bigger army and navy. You can't claim that we had a legitimate claim to take them in the first place. The only claim wwe have on the falklands is the fact that we have populated it and therfor the people want to remain British

    The same is true of N. Ireland.

    With that attitude should we have Normandy back? Give bits of Poland to Germany? Bring back the Holy Roman Empire? Northern Ireland is recognised as part of Britain by the UN.

    I doubt he'll even make it as far as the next election as leader of Labour.

    That's a completely different story one of conquest whereas this is one of repatriation.

    No, he's good on domestic issues but it's foreign policy that matters more at the moment and people tend to be more inclined to be on the right on such matters.

    It's more to do with the fact that the Falklands have belonged to Britain since before Argentina existed.

    That previous occupants left of their own accord.

    That an attempted violent invasion failed.

    That the current occupants have voted overwhelmingly to remain British.

    There is no debate.

    Corbyn foreign policy is entirely anti-British. I don't know why anyone would vote for a man who supports the IRA, Argentina, ISIS, Iran, Palestine, probably Cuba and withdrawing from NATO while simultaneously endorsing anti-parliamentarian and outdated socialist policies which damage British industry.

    The swing voters might see the advantage of having a socialist democratic government like free education for example.
    Unfortunately most swing voters pay tax, and most people would not want to be paying even more tax to pay for people's education, especially after paying a lot for it themselves.

    As above nationalisation pays a lot of it off.

    There's no such thing as free education. It will be funded by higher taxes either on business or income and will be poorly invested in government services which will be abused. Children at private schools take their education far more seriously. Why? Because their parents are paying far too much to allow their little brat to prat around.

    Well for a start you'd have to compensate the industry you are nationalising. I think there are now laws in place which restrict these practices, or will be if TTIP goes through. If you don't compensate you are thief and encouraging government theft of private property. Nationalisation will of course lead to a monopoly and insufficient service with a lot of taxpayer money thrown at it, the taxpayers and consumers will both lose out.

    Excellent argument, here's an interesting piece for you

    Of course with Jeremy's A-levels being so good I wouldn't have expected anything less than ill thought out policy.
