    Simply unelecatable and terrible at holding a poor Conservative Government to account. If Labour want any hope of getting into Government at the next election they have to ditch Corbyn soon and install a moderate that's able to speak to centrists but also social conservatives (the old Labour lot that have switched to UKIP).

    He is hypocritical, vain and woefully inadequate. If he really cared about the people, he would step aside and give Labour a chance to win the next general election. Ensuring another decade of Tory rule and putting up no opposition to a hard Brexit helps nobody.

    He's the only leader that actually has solutions to the big issues of today. Like it or not, we need taxes to increase to save the NHS. On many more issues he's actually got solutions. The conservatives just end up patching up problems, Corbyn actually wants to solve it.

    Or we could ditch this pretence that the NHS is the best health service in the world and it must be 100% funded through taxes.

    Haha French leftists say the same about our healthcare system, and answer any attempt to reform it by "look at the terrible English healthcare system".

    You make it sound a lot easier than it is… Corbyn has to resign, if he stands for re-election the membership skew is in his favour and will never lose. The only time a moderate can win is if there are only moderates standing for election because then they have no choice

    Corbyn identifies the issues but doesn't propose a solution.

    That's not Corbyn. It's Harold Shipman. A very unsuccessful doctor.

    From what I've seen of him, I strongly dislike him. I don't have a lot of sympathy for populism including economic populism. Corbyn's and the left's obsession with the distribution of income as opposed to absolute standards of living (whether people have good health, good nutrition, great education, etc) is something I will never understand. He's the antithesis of what I think social democratic politicians ought to be (Blair being a good example of what they ought to be - maybe he failed in foreign policy but was very good in domestic affairs). I'm not a social democrat at all but I respect centrist SDs as much as I respect my "own kind" (libertarians). Corbyn is an old fashioned socialist statist who will likely screw with whatever's left from the open, globalised market economy that Thatcher wanted to build in the UK (which is now dying as the UK withdraws from actual, gigantic free trade areas and imagines that the ultra-protectionist Trump is interested in any kind of actual free trade agreement).

    In short, very unfavourable. Too illiberal for my tastes.

    So un-electable that no one can beat him in an election. Funny that.

    i like him but hes obviously too week to run the labour party. hes had 4 cabinet reshuffles, he fires anyone who doesnt agree with him and hes 15 points behind in the polls.
    i had faith in him up until the last one. to ensure a labour victory we need a different leader.
    sorry jezza
