I frankly dont like any of them but here is what i think of the leaders of the big 3 parties:
Theresa May: dont like her but at least she has a plan for brexit and she is delivering a hard brexit
Jeremy Corbyn: nice guy and has some good ideas but has no brexit plan
Tim Farron: wants to reject article 50 so not a good negotiator as he wants to reject the result

Does it matter, they would not be the one's directly negotiating, they will help frame parameters, they will chair discussions once feedback obtained, they may make occasional direct head of state contact to try to get over sticky bits, but negotiate is not what they will do.

Personally, if I wanted a negotiator, I would recruit a couple of used car salesmen.

Jeremy Corbyn.

Whenever the EU negotiators say something he doesn't like, or doesn't understand, he can just do that thing where he looks down over his glasses at them and says nothing for a few seconds before saying something irrelevant. By doing this, he will score huge concessions on access to the single market.

He can open all negotiations with a question from one of his jobless constituents: "Monsieur Barnier, my constituent Angela does not agree with the UK paying an exit fee. (pause - increase in pitch of voice) Why do you think we should?"

He can get the EU negotiators onside by simply handing over Gibraltar to Spain and Ulster to Ireland.

He can be very clever by pretending to be a total moron, whilst secretly being a total moron.

Bit nonsensical because they would all negotiate different forms of Brexit. In the case of Farron he wouldnt want to go through with it at all. So best would be in terms of what sort of agreement you wanted. The leaders would do the negotiating anyway.

Because he is...
I don't like they guy as a leader, he's hopeless. But of all the leaders he looks the most normal and least stage managed/awkward when interacting with members of the public.

When Osborne or Cameron did one of their PR trips and talked to ordinary people, it was as if they'd never seen anyone who wasn't upper middle class. They were just incredibly awkward.

Just watch this!!

Jeremy Corbyn had the most 'normal' upbringing yes, that's not proof he's a nice guy. Posh people can be friendly and nice too, and there are absolute horrible people who can hold good conversation!
I'm just wondering are there anecdotes or stories about Corbyn where he gets this tag as a 'nice', 'decent' chap from?

I think just generallly people who meet him, even if they disagree with him and think he's hopeless remark that he is a very pleasant and lovely individual on a normal level.

He is actually very good when meeting members of the public or when he goes into schools. He looks a lot more natural and far less stage managed than other politicians. He seems like he really cares about he concerns rather than simply doing a PR stunt and looking awkward.

Hopeless leader but nice guy pretty much sums him up well.

I do think it's weird how posh, unrelatable Tories like Boris Johnson and David Cameron had such high levels of public popularity. Like not even in a 'I don't like them but think they'd run the country better' way, but atleast where I lived they had proper surburban Essex man 'he's a geezer' support. Boris especially a few years ago was a Tory rockstar.

Because they are PR men.
Boris plays the lovable bafoon expertly and cynically to good effect.

People never loved Cameron like they did Blair or Thatcher but they respected him as he came across as professional and a strong leader.

May is the same as Osborne, when she meets members of the public it's as if she doesn't know how to act normally.

Not saying that this impacts her ability to be PM but it's astonishing to see the lack of social skills.

Probably the only thing Corbyn has over her, being able to look like he's not putting on an act when meeting ordinary people.

The chances of a Farron-led government are exceptionally remote - but let's say he did by some miracle form a government, or in some capacity ended up Foreign Sec or something - this would also assume that a 2nd referendum takes place, which yields a different outcome.

Why would you need a 2nd referendum? They are advisory only and he could argue he was given a mandate via the GE. In the event he followed Brexit through, then the type of Brexit agreement would be entirely down to the government.

Even though Farron wont get into power the Lib-dems will gain alot more seats, only because people want to hold on to that idea that Brexit can be overturned, like it or not its happened and for people to vote for this reason clearly suggests they're against democracy.
