So I saw this in the news that two southern rail workers have been suspended for pouring a mop bucket around a homeless man in what looks like an attempt to shift him on.



To be fair I think it’s disgusting what they have done and he’s clearly become wet from this and he’s probably not got somewhere to dry his clothes and change into something dry.

The UK is full of nasty pigs!

He probably lives in homeless accomodation and comes down to beg during the day.

That's what they do where I live.

Would have served them right if he'd been an ex kick boxer, and had knocked the crap out of them.

A lot of people in this country are only 2 pay days away from being in the same boat as that homeless fella so should have a bit more compassion.
I saw an article recently saying the number of homeless people had dropped, they mustn't have come to Manchester then!

I read the other week that Lou Macari has opened a hostel for the homeless in Stoke with his own money.Fair play to that man.
If Labour had a leader who wasn't an unelectable lunatic, the centres of Bolton and Manchester wouldn't be strewn with homeless people.

How is it Corbyn's fault? It is the Tory government that has systematically cut funding to social services and local government not Corbyn.

I think that Growler is implying that if Labour were in power they'd do a lot more to help homeless people, but they are not in a position to do that because Corbyn is unelectable.

I suspect you actually agree about the Tory cutbacks.

Corbyn was the only anti-austerity labour leadershipcandidate when he got in, so it’s a bit of a nonsense point to be fair.

To be really fair, anyone can say that they'd do this or that but unless they get elected and in power they will never do anything as is the case with Jezza.
Making promises is the easy part.

What did he promise to do as leader which he hasn’t?

Everything. Not one item of his manifesto has been delivered as he didn't get elected. If he'd won the election he'd have the opportunity to do something but he is unelectable as the media have their claws into him. Plus he's a bit of a dick anyway. 
I reckon Starmer would have a chance though.

I like Starmer.

What you fail to see is that there’s an appetite in this country for a left wing government. It’s why Labour picked up so many green voters at the last election and it why Corbyn has attracted so many to the party.

Whether it’s enough to win an election remains to be seen, but so far he’s improved on the results of opposition centrist candidates and reinvigorated the party.

Which is remarkable since Corbyn is a useless twat who hasn't changed his mind about anything since he was 15.

Remarkable to you. But for those of us who were looking for a politician who genuinely supports the working class, will stand up to the right wing media and tackle injustice - it’s bloody obvious. Who would you prefer to be leader of the party?

Right wing media  Laughing

Anyway turns out this homeless hero is a convicted murderer, hopefully Corbyn finds out before he tweets about it.

It's a pity he is not so keen on standing up to the anti-semites in his party.

Ye the man who has spent his life campaigning against racism is in fact a racist.

Sadly, the Americanisation of British politics means JC has a major problem. Image.
He dresses like a geography teacher, which is unacceptable to broad swathes of the British public, and the media.
Ideas matter little. Michael Foot had the same problem.
I well remember the pasting he got for wearing a 'Donkey Jacket' at the Cenotaph. That jacket was a gift from his wife, cost £200, and he was complimented on it by the Queen Mother.
At the 2015 Cenotaph act of remembrance, Corbyn stayed behind to meet and greet the veterans marching past, when all the other leaders and MP's had disappeared to a VIP lunch.
The papers next day said Corbyn had 'snubbed' the lunch.
I suppose he'll have to Blair himself up.

I agree the right wing media (most newspapers) will always be looking to attack and smear any left wing politician but the problem is that Corbyn gives them so much material to work with.

Just take his failure to deal with the anti-semiticism issue as an example. He could have avoided this easily by adopting in the first instance the widely used standard definition but he refused to do so on completely bogus grounds that it somehow prevented criticism of the state of Israel. It took months before he backed down. He certainly didn't help himself when he defended a blatantly anti-semitic mural. Could he not see that it was offensive?

The bottom line is that he is not a very intelligent person or a capable politician. Which makes him exactly the same as May, albeit with different opinions!

Depends what you mean by 'capable politician'.

Donald Trump is a capable politician, because, let's face it, he got elected. Unfortunately, he's also a corrupt idiot.

Yes Trump is unfortunately a completely unscrupulous but nevertheless capable politician. Corbyn is not. His election as leader of the Labour party is a sad joke - he couldn't get enough genuine nominations so some centrist Labour MPs nominated him so that there was a left wing candidate.

I am using the dictionary definition of capable: having the ability, fitness, or quality necessary to do or achieve a specified thing.

What should he have achieved which he hasn’t would be my question? Bearing in mind the state of the party when Milliband lost to Cameron.

Id also question what ability you think Trump has? Right place right time for his bigoted views in my opinion, little skill or innovation involved with rallying up that base.

Here are three things Corbyn has lost:
1. the referendum. Corbyn campaigned for remain although if you blinked you might have missed this
2. the 2017 election
3. 9 members of the Labour party because of his failure to deal with anti-semiticism.

In contrast Trump won the Republican nomination and the presidential election.

Trump only got 46.09% of the vote compared to Clinton's 48.18% - but due to the quirks of the American electoral system he got in. 
Strongly tipped to get re-elected as well despite his ongoing troubles.
