thank goodness we did !! now we have at least 5, probably 10 or more, years of strong and stable government by pragmatic capitalists rather than deranged Soviet fanboys

More like 5 years of Tory ‘misunderstandings’ and a lot of resignations. Then at the general election, more mudslinging and another Brexit election.

It’s going to be great...

Claimed he was heavily "inspired" by Marxism, which is fundamentally an anachronistic ideology which has never and will never once work, along with the pure socialism he endorsed. Corbyn also supported the socialist revolution in Venezuela, which is now seeing 94% living in poverty, 25% relying on foreign aid and over 8,000 extrajudicial killings, surely its fair to say socialism/borderline communism has failed here and would fail under a Corbynist government. His support for a 'classless society' is a nice idea yes, but completely absurd, the harsh reality is that society needs inequality to function, a requirement Labour have never seemed to understand. Finally, he'd resort to the typical Labour wildcard of 'borrow and spend' with improper investments, he'd borrow money and nigh instantaneously invest it all into the welfare state without any real, proper, investment into the economy. This means that once these loans are called back in, the economy wouldn't have progressed enough to sustain his expanded welfare states, due to his lack of investment.

Reading the some of the left wing comments makes you even realise why even some of his voters didn’t vote for him
If they didn't vote for him, they are not his voters.
Voting Tory because you don't like Corbyn is like putting shjt on your toast because you don't like Marmite.

Reading some of the right wing comments on here makes you realise why they were suckered by such obvious bullshjt.

I watched a lot of these “journalists interviewing ordinary people on the street about the election” videos recently and I keep hearing that people support Labour and heir policies but can’t stand Corbyn. What is so repulsive about him? He has consistently held the same views, not flip flopping like Boris, is pro-union, pro-nhs, pro-education, wants to tax wealthy people a tad more to pay for vital public services, etc. Are these things so bad?
(Original post by 999tigger)
Off the top of my head.

1. Too extreme and left wing.
2. Too willing to impose taxes and get the country into more debt.
3. Outdated dinosaur on economics.
4. Too willing to nationalise.
5. Weak leader in dealing with issues, and running his own party. Bullying, Anti semitism
clkaims etc.
6. Weak on defence, no respect for armed forces or sticking up for the UK when tough defence decisions need to be made.
7. Dubious past acquaintances


These are all things to do with him and is why some people felt he was unelectable.
This is pretty much it, and also his very weak (practically non-existent) stance on Brexit. I still would find him very preferable to the Conservatives though, as I'm sure a lot of people would.

Lol, all the Corbyn haters can't seven say what's ACTUALLY bad about him. The only reasons they've given so far have just been petty nonsense that doesn't even make any sense.

There are lots of things wrong with Corbyn, but to me the worst is his lack of intelligence.

He got two E's at A Level, and according to a former wife, never once opened a book in the four years they were together.

I don't see why.
His position was absolutely clear. Negotiate the best deal possible then put it to a 2nd referendum against Remain. Not only clear, but reasonable.
That position would not have made Remainers leave for other parties, and campaigning for unilaterally cancelling Brexit would not have persuaded any convinced Leavers to vote Labour.

Again, this issue is just a misrepresentation by the media and people seem to have uncritically accepted it.

"Strong Leader" does not mean doing something stupid just because it is easy or popular. A strong leader does the right thing, even if it is difficult or unpopular.
Your last point is dubious to say the least.

Strength does not ipso facto have a moral dimension.

I don't.
There are plenty of people who agree with me who are stupid, and others who disagree who are clearly not.
However, the evidence suggests that a large proportion of people are indeed idiots, and I don't see why we should pretend otherwise.
You don't need to be an genius to realise half of his proposals were never going to amount to anything, his handling of anti-Semitism in his party (which grew during his leadership) was crap, he has a history of associating himself with enemies of our country while disassociating himself from our allies, is about as charismatic as a damp paper towel and seemed more focused on appearing 'woke' than being an actually political.

Frankly I just didn't see him as any sort of leader. great in his element, good guy...not a leader. It honestly never felt like he was even leading the party let alone making a credible attempt to lead the country. The media obv distorts a lot, but he makes it easy for them.

You don't need to be an genius to realise
Ironic

half of his proposals were never going to amount to anything,
Which half, and why? And we have already seen Johnson ditching election promises.

his handling of anti-Semitism in his party (which grew during his leadership) was crap,
Subjective opinion. If you look at the actual issues, he handled it pretty well. The PLP is not anti-semitic, has no anti-semitic policies and he has never made ant anti-semitic statements. Neither is criticising Israel and supporting Palestinian rights anti-semitic. So, I'm not sure what else you expected him to do.

he has a history of associating himself with enemies of our country while disassociating himself from our allies,
Meaningless statement. He campaigned for peace and reunification in Ireland. How can you do that without meeting all sides. Same with the Palestine/Israel issue.
Do you think that politicians should only talk to other politicians they agree with? A tad naive, don't you think?

is about as charismatic as a damp paper towel
More subjective opinion. Right wingers have reasons to dislike him. Left wingers have reasons to like him. It's not rocket science.

and seemed more focused on appearing 'woke' than being an actually political.
See above point.
"Johnson seemed more focused on appearing 'populist' than being actually political."

Says 'some of the things' and then produces a hella large list. Thanks though, will be my go-to list against Corbynistas
Pick three from that list and we will look at the reality of the claim. (Hint: It's mostly *******s)

His beard, according to my mother.
Probably the most honest and genuine comment here.
