I'm not one to tend to believe that these things have an effect because even the social media outlets themselves have struggled to work out just how to get a message they want across on a platform and we also know that people are at risk of speaking to echo chambers (Twitter notably leans left) however over the last 24 hours a targetted Tory attack against Corbyn (by the folks who masterminded Obama and the 2015 Ed and Salmond poster) has gained over 1.3 million views on Facebook and i have to admit is utterly brilliant.

One has to admit that it's a work of art whether one agrees with the content or not, for your average patriot it's just so damaging.

It reeks of desperation if we're to be honest. For starters a lot of what is said on the video he's changed his mind on anyway.

In this country you vote for an MP not for a "leader", the only reason to attack Corbyn is his capability as a brexit negotiator. Other than that the tories should be looking to go after their manifesto, which they cant because they know it's better.

It's also disgusting how theyve politicised the terror attack. The tories are the ones in power so thats ironic in many ways.

I'd say that showing that Corbyn has voted against every piece of intelligence legislation is actually very relevant at a time like this.

The deeper story here is that Facebook allows hidden campaigning to take place, getting around the regulations and laws governing electoral expenses and enabling any lies to be distributed without public scrutiny or comeback.

It's conceivable that Facebook are engaged in political manipulation as well. The owners and backers of Facebook are extreme libertarians and there is no question they would favour a right wing government here, or at the very least, one less likely to impose a regulatory environment on them.

Iraq War vote - Corbyn against, May For

Libya Bombing - Corbyn against, May For

Bombing Syria - Corbyn against, May for


Iraq = haven for Daesh

Libya = Jihadi wonderland

Syria = Had we bombed it to oust the dictator Assad, radical alqaeda-linked groups like Al Nusra and Daesh would have taken over.



I think i'm going to stick with Corbyn. I like genuine people with insight.

This could backfire for the tories. If we had Corbyn instead of Blair, we probably wouldn't have had 7/7 or all the other atrocities committed against us - because he doesn't want to get involved militarily in other mans business :rofl:.

Corbyn is a better leader, May is a sheep who will continue to follow the US
We need someone who actually leads on behalf of Britain and Corbyn will provide us this
May is a dictator who has "strong and stable" on permanent rewind in her mouth
What have conservatives done for us students?
Brought in this (soon to fail) system known as (9-1) GCSE
Raised Uni fees to £9,250
Conservatives hate students, hate the middle and working class but love the rich

You deliberately ignore the fact that his approach to terrorism is entirely different, which doesnt need intelligence legislation that thus far has been unsuccessful and infringes into our privacy. These buzzwords you use to make Corbyn look like he doesnt care about terrorism is not working.

Do you honestly think if we disbanded our army, gave no support to our intelligence services and told Daesh we're very very sorry for bombing them and we won't do it again, they'll just leave us alone?

That's not what Corbyn is proposing. Try again, this time try not to make up what he said.

I find the Conservative election campaign to be quite bizarre. Rather than focusing on what they have to offer the country, more time seems to be spent attacking Corbyn.This was meant to be the election that the Tories buried Labour, instead polls show a Labour resurgence and the Conservative lead has approximately halved in the last couple of weeks. I see undertones of both the Remain and Clinton campaigns in their strategy and we know how well that went (not that I see a Labour victory).

He wants to make deeper cuts to the armed forces and stop bombing Daesh. Are you sure you're paying attention to your own messiah?

9/11 and the US embassy bombings say what now.

Although foreign policy contributes, the rise of terrorism has its roots in the end of the cold war. The Soviets and US left the world to it to a larger degree.

This statement is different to what you said earlier. Make up your mind.
