lol with diane Abbott? If so then we are doomed... plus jeremy is too weak to take the helm as PM and constantly making last minute change of opinions and actions builds mistrust among his supporters. He should be replaced... He's far too old and out of touch in terms with how to realistically solve problems financially and that brexit isn't just our main problem

It might be a good government - if Jeremy could persuade more than just his favoured posse of hard-left MPs to be part of it. However, that would go against everything Trotsky and he stands for - therefore he won't. As for Jezza himself, even the smallest decisions take weeks or months of mental prevarication and 'consultations with the comrades' to come to a point, so we can expect a pretty slow moving government. There are some who argue that can be a good thing, but sometimes you need someone at the top who can (call me old fashioned) take a decision.

Is that actually a real article?

P.s. I'm not suggesting it isn't, just asking

I’d be worried if the leader of the opposition wasn’t saying they could take power,

Empty statement: one of the main jobs for an opposition party is to be ready to form a new government at all times, should an existing one fall.

Also I don't know why he would even want to become pm at this point considering his own party is divided over brexit....

I can answer that for you, it most certainly is, it's the kind of shite he used to get up to all the time.

I think he will make an excellent PM. There would be more funding for local services, better NHS, no trident etc.

Unfortunately, people are afraid of Corbyn because they don't want him to raid their pockets with taxes. They are then pretending to be against him for other reasons.

I am against his opposition to trident nor do I trust him to be able to react sufficiently robustly if our country needed him to.
What exactly am I pretending to not like?

No, he's wholly incompetent and inexperienced. I don't think he could organise a piss up in a brewery.

He is not the only MP that opposes trident. Also, the idea of him “reacting sufficiently robustly” is a bit silly. We have a full and robust defence system with several layers, Corbyn does not hold the key to the kingdom neither does Mrs May or other predecessors. Even where there is a clear need to respond, he would still need to get it approved by Parliament.

Let me put it another way. If Corbyn said today that he supports Trident and would launch nukes to bomb our “enemies”, would you still support him? If no, why?

So our national security is not a big enough issue for you.
Okay I find his attitude towards our war dead abhorrent, I find his attitude to the IRA, hesbolah and other terrorist organisations abhorrent, I found his lack of backbone during the referendum when he should have stood by his principles and admitted that he's a leaver cowardly.
I could not give the slightest **** about what he would tax the rich because I am totally the opposite end of the scale

Of course not. National security remains a top priority to me. I was saying that national security is not only delivered by the Prime Minister. They have a cabinet and Parliament. In a situation where the PM refuses to act, there are other ways to respond without them.

His attitude to many of the groups that you mentioned were shared with many other people. He has been in favour of peace and reconciliation even before the Government at the time took it as their official policy.

Corbyn was a leader of a Party that was split, just like the Tories. His official position was to remain neutral. He is attacked if he does one thing and dismissed if he takes a separate option.

Maybe not you, but there are many people who are afraid of a Corbyn Govt because of the tax raids. I have heard those arguments with people who secretly agree that they dont want to pay so much in tax.

Then you need to amend your comment in post #11, it should read some people are afraid of Corbyn and so on, because there are other perfectly valid reasons for not wanting Corbyn to be PM.
