Is voting Corbyn the same as voting Tory?

    • Thread Starter

    Today I heard the most ridiculous thing on the news that voting Corbyn was the same as voting Tory???

    How can that be? Corbyn is the leader Britain needs to make things better, to make the rich pay up and to hold the bankers responsible for destroying our economy. To stop the air attacks in Syria and Iraq that are causing so much misery.
    When people get used to Corbyn labours poll ratings will escalate. People all over want more left wing politics.

    May is not a very strong leader and was never elected to be PM. I'd say Corbyn would have a good chance of winning a general election. People are tired and fed up of the Tories and austerity and people want change after 7 years of Tory rule.

    So how is voting Corbyn as labour leader possibly gonna benefit the Tories?

    Corbyn will help the Tories stay in power for longer, because he is unelectable at the moment.

    However, in the long term, I think it will help the socialist cause; people will get tired of austerity, and the opposition would finally be a proper socialist, rather than a red tory, as Labour were previously.
