Can't be Chuka, sure all the papers have dirt on him hence him dropping out early last time. Jarvis could be good. Still quite like Mary Creagh too due to her being local to me

The same Corbyn that did nothing but sit on the fence throughout this whole Ref? The Labour party headed by Corbyn which showed little to nothing in the whole ref?

He's the right kind of person Labour need around, but he's not fit to be the head of the party.

If i was English i would be wanting Corbyn replaced, otherwise Labour won't be seeing anything near power in a long time.

There is some chatter on this side of the pond about how it might actually not go through after all. Because parliament, legal this, that and whatnot. Any truth in that? Or are you guys dead set on seppuku?

"But some 51 percent of the total and 47 percent of Remain supporters said immigration had no impact on them personally. Those saying immigration had no impact on them personally was even higher among Leave supporters, at 52 percent."

Imagine if Corbyn took an anti-racist leave stance this would have set him against the cons. But as with his views on Palestine others in and outside the party are ready to attack and purposefully misinterpret his views.

What would have Freud said about who people think deserves to be a political leader? Seeing as most work against their interests.

So to sum up: People saying this is a bad idea

All of our allies
Basically every country around the world
Every financial institution

Reasons why this is a bad idea

Ruined economy
Based on false promises
Massive removal of rights

People saying this is a good idea
Donald Trump
Marine Le Pen
Geert Wilders

Reasons why this is a good idea:
Just wait six months for ??? to happen and it'll be ???
Nightwaxon doesn't like being called a racist
Angels Hoover

I don't know shit about British politics (nor do I care), but I find it funny that it's OK for the UK to opt out of the EU, but not ok for Scots to have their Independence

It's really simple to explain

By voting out your petrol will be more expensive on Monday morning, when you go on holiday from the job you hate everything will cost more and if you can't afford a holiday or don't have a job to hate anymore because you worked for a company who imports goods of any kind of sells to the domestic market and your boss has just told you he's cutting the workforce 10% because his market just shrank everything will cost more anyway whilst you sit there wondering when all the polish builders will go back home and the nhs waiting rooms will get quieter (they won't)

In the meantime a new prime minister who you didn't vote for will try his or her very best to ensure that in actuality they work for a deal which will be as close to the current situation as possible because in reality anything else will be worse for your jobs and taxes and the stuff you buy.

Whilst the prime minister you didn't vote for tries to scramble to get a deal that keeps everything the same greedy bankers who you probably hate if you voted out will milk as much profit from the massive market fluctuations caused by the vote you cast to take more money out of the system that won't pay for all the things you thought you would get by voting out but won't.

In 5 years time you will look at the same four walls and wonder in what way your life was better and come to the conclusion that the next time someone offers you a better life in return for a political vote you will put the telly back on and stay at home like you usually do when the little polling booth opens for a day at the end of your road.

When I look at the petrol pump I don't look at it with intrepidation. My primary concern on holiday isn't economics either and in 5 years time nothing contained within four walls matters nor does it now for beyond this life we all are guaranteed a chance of having a better life for eternity.
