This thread is very representative of UK politics as viewed from the outside haha. You lot are crazy.

Why are you guys so scared of Corbyn?
I don't really know much about the guy but the policies of Labour seems better and in the end you are voting for a party. It is not a presidential race.
And Boris is a straight up buffoon so can't really see the reason to put off Corbyn due to his demeanor or "lack of leadership". Everyone who is not British or Trump think Boris is a clown.

Scared of Corbyn? Maybe we could all do with a little education - like the last time this country had a Labour this bad. Under Heath, Callahan, et al in the 70s. The three day weeks, the rubbish mounting on the streets, no electricity, taking three weeks to get a burial… it took Thatcher to come in and have to do some pretty horrible things just to reset the mess Labour left the country in.

History indeed keeps on repeating itself.

The fact that Corbyn congratulated Bolivian president Evo Morales on his ‘victory’ in the fraudulent election in Bolivia on the 27th October this year, only for the same president to run off to Mexico less than two weeks later says it all.

The more you look into the past, the more you see into the future.

Edit: anyway, I’m done with this topic. Let’s just see what happens. I do know that if Corbyn and his cronies get in, I’m off.

Vienna, Budapest or Krakow most likely.

Corbyn will fuck the country over. Borisis a cunt yeah I get it. But choosing a labour agenda under this lot is madness. I’d love to get behind a centrist labour project. I don’t mind paying a bit more tax. Even though I’m paying top band. I’m a liberal. I’ll prob vote them but I disagree in their revive policy. It’s in democratic. I’d even take one of the wank deals to move one to prevent a no deal. Country needs some compromise to me together and move on.

How will Corbyn fuck the country over?, genuinely like to know why you feel this. I feel this way towards Boris myself.

I think he would be anti business. I believe that the big tax avoiding companies should be paying there fair share and the mega rich. But I think he would come after high and middle earners too who are already paying a good sack. He is a terrorist sympathiser, allowed anti senators to spread. Has no respect for the queen.. hates trump (as do I) but can’t see him being able to hold his nose and have a working relationship. He is more of a heckler and campaigner than a credible statesman or someone who you could take seriously on the world stage.

I think more-so now than ever, British politics is in a place whereby you vote for the party you dislike the least
