    Comrade Jezzbollah Corbynski is a far worse maniac than you claim Boris is, in fact I’d go as far as to say Corbynski is a bigger threat to the U.K. than a direct hit from an errant f*****g asteroid.

    In the interest of balance, I feel it's time for some left-wing hatred...……….

    ALL TORIES ARE ****S.

    There, everyone happy now?

    I love it that the original comment got to you. Even lying on your Spanish sunbed in your leopard print Speedos, you have to put down your glass of Sangria and stop humming the Red Flag for a second to mention it yet again. :)

    Hope you’re having a great time in the sunshine.

    She's a feisty one, mind. You may end up handcuffed to your bed, Uber, being beaten on the buttocks with a rolled up copy of the Labour manifesto. Fantasise about that for the rest of the day!

    No sure he actually carries any threat
    But I agree he is no PM a sincere activist at best. I would say he shows a true labour ethic to me which we all confused with when compared to Blair’s new Labour which in real terms were Tories in disguise.

    The amount of ****e pushed towards Corbyn’s door is frankly laughable and as said I believe his refusal to conform to the British political system is the true root of that.

    I admire his steadfast attitude and do not agree for one minute that he is as sinister as the establishment makes out. He simply hasn’t enough friends in the club.

    Not a defender of his ambition to become PM because it would be chaotic and simply people are not ready not even close to the revolution that I believe is required in our political system.

    The red flag why do Tories fight with this daft comparison that being aligned towards a fairer UK for all means that we are all suddenly Red and overseen by the KGB

    We seem to associate Russia with criminals and a bleak outlook

    Isn’t it weird how the Left see Blair’s New Labour as Tories-in-disguise when I see much of Cameron’s Conservative government as Labour-in-disguise.

    Attlee’s Labour administration of 1945 was more to the ‘right’ than anything we have today.

    From my own experience I cannot really see any differences between either party blue or red. Of course I am coming a fusion of French politics and British politics every fortnight... either one of which inspires me.

    eg If Macron came to the area I am lucky enough to live in France then there would be mass demonstrations. It’s exactly the same separation which more spice ... my friends in the Languedoc hate the north with a passion.

    What is different is the commitment to protest on a scale that not many on here would be able to comprehend. All ages hit the streets in my case it’s rural lanes x

    The Atlee government created the NHS and the Welfare State. It also nationalised vital industries such as the utilities. These were great achievements by a Socialist government, the like of which we haven't seen since. This is to the right of what, exactly?

    The Cameron government was cynical in its exploitation of the situation created by the bankers' crash to shrink the state by means of largely unnecessary austerity. Archetypal Tory rich get richer, whilst the poor get poorer. Labour in disguise? Hardly.

    You’re missing the point. Social reforms. Substantially larger welfare state. Gay marriage. Death penalty. Attitudes in the 1940s were much different to where they are today.

    Banking situation was nurtured by governments of every livery in recent times. It was a bubble just waiting to burst. Just happened it did during a Tory government.

    Deficit? All they did was arrest the rate of borrowing, not reduce overall indebtedness. It was pathetic of them.

    I must indeed be missing the point. Surely the social reforms are the result of a more enlightened society. Do you want to reverse them?
