He was never going to lose and who;d have thought there'd be allegations of bullying from within a union...

They won't care. It's bad but it's one of those things most people don't pay attention too IMO.

Corbyn's car crash interview: Labour leader would NOT bomb ISIS, wants to scrap Trident, and would withdraw British troops from Nato

Jeremy Corbyn has suggested he would never use nuclear weapons, would halt air strikes on ISIS and withdraw British troops from Nato defences against Russia in a car crash interview on national security.
Mr Corbyn told the BBC's Andrew Marr he wanted a 'peaceful world' but rebuffed a barrage of questions about the real security threats facing Britain today.
The Labour leader hesitated when asked if he would authorise a drone strike to kill the leader of ISIS and said his instruction to submarine captains in control of nuclear weapons would be to follow orders - not respond to a catastrophic first strike.

Re: June 8th General Election

Labour is just completely in disarray. We would be completely defenceless under that idiot Corbyn.

But never mind, he wants to give us an extra 4 days bank holiday, he wants 10 an hour living wage, he is just going to bankrupt the country and to hell with lowering the deficit.

I do think they should add a bank holiday around October or November. We have comparatively few compared to other European nations and the ones we do have are clustered around now. Having one for St Georges Day makes no sense either as it's so close to easter and may bank holidays.

Re: June 8th General Election

Exactly, we could end up with 4 in March or 3 in April with the Patron Saints plan. That's depending on which month Easter falls in obviously, as we have David & Patrick in March. I say the Monday closest to November 11th be made a Bank Holiday.

Re: June 8th General Election

I think one around then would be good. It doesn't help St George's Day is so close to other bank holidays or that it's not such a compelling 'national' day. Trying it with Guy Fawkes night would be cool.

Re: June 8th General Election

I think one extra is tolerable but an additional three is overkill and damaging to the economy, in all honesty, I doubt it's a resounding reason to want to suddenly go out and vote Labour.

Re: June 8th General Election

To Be fair, provision of bank holidays are a very long way down on the list of what I look for in the country's leader.

The fact that Labour voted to renew Trident at the cost of billions, and their Leader has just nullified that investment. Just shows the intellect of the man. Even if you wouldn't press the button, you don't say you wouldn't.

Re: June 8th General Election

I mean the policy itself is a party throwing anything at salvaging some seats. No argument there! But we need at least one, maybe even two bank holidays around winter

Correct me if I'm wrong but this seems to be an old report as we are having an election this year,

A particularly sharp cut is planned for 2019–20, immediately prior to the next general election.
In latest news: This idiot is thinking of coming back!

And he said he felt so passionately about Brexit he was "almost motivated" to re-enter British politics himself.
