Oh Jezza... :(

In the middle of a UK election campaign, a couple of days after a terrorist who was released early murdered two people on the streets of London, the Labour backbencher who is their PM candidate tells Sky News Terrorists should "not necessarily" serve the full term of their prison sentence.

Idealism is commendable, stupidity definitely is not. How many wavering voters does he think those two words have won over to his party? That sort of comment can lose an election in a good year, and this definitely is not of those :scratch:

You are probably right, Jackos.


OTOH....




The guy tried to access a deradicalisation program but was told there was nothing available to him. And prison is turning into a madrassah, say the right wing press...

The rights and wrongs of early release, deradicalisation or capital punishment don't really come into it in the current climate, especially during an election campaign, and a couole of days after the latest attack. Corbyn is not a backbencher anymore, he supposedly wants the job of leading the country, idealists very seldom, if ever, get, or are even suitable for the job.

Rightly or wrongly deradicalisation is seen by many has being soft on terrorism, as is letting them out early. I doubt that tweet will cost Johnson any votes, I am absolutely certain "not necessarily" will cost Labour votes.

I don't really agree with the first statement, but it's a nice collection of hypocrisy re: reporting on Corbyn.

There may be another one along in a minute...

I don't understand why the twatter even bothered - the 2nd part would be true of any politician at any time of their career in regard to their critics. No?

Dunno if I agree. Some seem to be indulged in anything, however much it self contradicts. Corbyn gets traduced by media and opposition for policies that are then quietly adopted. Not seen that much before I don't think.

Hahaha - I posted this (before she did). I wonder whether your famous Corbynite there robbed it off one of my RTers.

The stated objectives of the Jewish Labour Movement are solely concerned with promoting values within the state of Israel, or promoting Israel as being central to Jewish Life. Isn't the JLM continually lashing out at anyone who dares to criticise Israel, or who offers sympathy for the plight of people in Palestine, which is totally different from being anti-semitic?

The usual election nonsense.
disposable income is up, but then household debt is at a record high
income inequality has been rising for the last 8 years, and is considerably above where it was 35 years ago - the most recent high for income in equality was 28 years ago - so the 30 year mark was carefully chosen to be misleading
