    Great mandate for electoral suicide imo

    Relative to the electorate as a whole, the overwhelming support of a relatively small number of commies does not a PM make

    Communism won't be elected to power; the only realistic way for it to gain power is through revolution of the proletariat.

    Goodbye labour.

    It's a shame because not having an opposition isn't very good. I prefer the Tories to labour in many way (mainly because they are actually competant and they have brought unemployment down to an all time low) but their illberalness on some issues annoys me.

    I struggle to understand how Corbyn's supporters fail to comprehend that the more extreme Tory government under May, is a direct result of Corbyn's shambolic opposition.

    Yeah, except wage growth in the UK has been comparable to Greece's.

    That's what happens when you have a really high employment rate.

    Our unemployment rate is much lower than much of europe. My point is, a low unemployment rate is nothing to celebrate when wage growth is so abysmal.

    Especially when the employment rate rise is partially the result in the enormous growth of part time, zero hour and temp work.

    The United Kingdom has one of the highest minimum wages in western Europe, so it isn't that abysmal. Although there might be a large number of people in low-paid work, at least they're not milking the state on benefits and at least they're contributing to the circulation of capital.

    Also, Jeremy Corbyn did not win an increased share of the total vote. In 2015, Jeremy Corbyn won 59% of the popular vote, but that was after the first round of voting. If the voting process had been allowed to continue - and therefore had Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall been out - he would have won much more than 61% of the total vote as he did do this time around.

    Socialism has never worked. Never. It didn't work in Venezuela, Zimbabwe, France, Scandinavia, Cuba, the USSR, the PRC, North Korea, Vietnam or Brazil - and it won't work in Britain, either.

    Surely an unnecessary constraint on the free market? It is, at least, one of the reasons we are so attractive to low-quality immigrants, and are terrible at exports.

    Although there might be a large number of people in low-paid work, at least they're not milking the state on benefits and at least they're contributing to the circulation of capital.
    That is little comfort to me, when the main driver of job growth seems to be low-paid jobs, which is not something I'm particularly aiming for.

    The UK has piss poor productivity; GDP per hour worked is around 80% of France and Germany's, and it hasn't been significantly improving. This means Britishers are spending much more time at work to maintain the same economic output, as workers in France and Germany. http://stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?DatasetCode=LEVEL

    How do you define socialism?

    1) a system under which wealth is redistributed from the rich to the poor
    2) a system under which the government controls the economy
    3) a system under which the working class control the means of production

    And, imo, France and Scandinavia are doing fine.

    Neo-Nazis: because promoting multiculturalism and undermining Britain is fine, so long as you get to hate Jewish people
