Corbynistas will never manage to change politics as radically as Brexiteers Watch

I agree with your point if you are trying to say that the Blairites are the truly effective wing of the opposition party. However, I got to back up Mr Osborne. Unemployment decreased to all time lows and employment to all time highs whilst growth only came back post 2013. It can be purely attributed to the Corp tax cuts from 28% to 20% between 2010-2015. I believe that businesses would rather have small reductions across the long run than the latter because it is more sustainable. Personally, I think that corp tax should be cut down to 10% by 2022 as it would give us a real competitive advantage over the continentals post Brexit. I think that instead of giving 2.5% promise to pensioners should be scrapped, instead the difference between either growth in the economy or inflation (which ever is higher) should be spent to reduce the VAT rate as it would incentive tourism, increase our savings rate for long run sustainability and stimulate consumption. I think that the public pay freeze should be scrapped and the shortfall should come from controlling excessive growth in the DFid budget. I want to eliminate the regressive NI tax by rolling back on the income tax exemptions (I believe that the tax payer's alliance said it costs the exchequer's around 100bn GBP) and that in the long run our goal should be to reduce the top tax of income tax towards ~20%. My opinion is that all public sector pay should be re evaluated so that the PM has the highest pay in the public sector as it holds the most responsibilities then followed by the Chancellors and that all pay should be re adjusted in the long run to make up for the gap. Finally, I think that the business rate should be scrapped and that all public sector workers that are not inhibited by a pay cap should have their incomes revenue neutrally adjusted for the Exchequer. In other words, I want a competitive economy that can properly fund its NHS, Education, Infrastructure (including r&d), law and order and defence so that we can remain at the helm of innovation.
I think everyone agrees, across most political and economic lines, that incomes in the long run rise with productivity gains. Hence, I would believe that these proposals are necessary, the increasing of expenditure on:
Education as it leads to a higher educated workforce
Health care as a healthy workforce is always a better performing one
Net capital investments by the government to improve transport links and data interconnection
R&D to develop new industries domestically
A tax expenditure specifically constructed to encourage a business to offset tax with investments made by the company to improve performance and quality of products produced with evidence.
A probusiness and entrepreneurship tax code to encourage innovation, growth of business and development of industry by private investors.
I would like to add that by slowly reducing the size of the state, public adjustments would easily take place and tax revenue collection would increase dramatically.

Anyone who calls themselves a socialist and believes the current mode of governance can achieve those ends is either an idiot or a charlatan.

Brexit is a great foundation for nationalisation Of services Corbyn given power will continue the legacy of brexiteers as Brexit hasn’t even begun yet.lefites in power will build on its foundations something great I believe that’s for sure whilst I support Corbyn and believe and voted in Brexit what does that make me then? This is simply binding this talk to the old Corbyn supporters are all remainers and Brexit voters all tory whilst In reality I share this so called glory Brendan O’Neil speaks off as do many Corbyn supporters.

Spikd is pompous and pretentious. The two go hand in hand, Brexit actually helps the true left Bennites. So Corbyn needs Brexit and the disruption of the status quo. What McDonell specifically will do is more radical than Brexit, obviously, that's why the whole establishment hates him- he will be conducive to a United Ireland, Independent Scotland, he wants to disband MI5, he will make corporations accountable. He wants national education for free FFS. They would terminate foreign policy relationships with human rights criminals such as the one with the Saudis and cease 'liberal interventionist' wars with constant civilian deaths So spikd is talking nonsense.

'I almost feel sorry for all those fired-up, Corbyn-cheering Glasto radicals, because no matter how hard they try, no matter how many anti-Tory memes they share or Corbyn-as-Che-Guevara t-shirts they buy, they will never, ever do anything as radical as the thing us Brexiteers did last June.'

This was from Brendan O'Neill, editor of Spiked. Do you agree?
He's correct; Corbynista's will never be as rad as us Brexiteers.

My son tells me rad means good.
