    Corbyn (amongst other things) is and has been of no consequence, only the ignorant young now follow him as most of us that are older and wiser (except Bronco apparently) have and can see completely through him...

    That's meaningless. The fact that he voted against the Iraq war and the bombing of Libya whilst the vast majority of his fellow parliamentarians did the opposite is hardly his fault. He's been proven right, history tells us that. No one denies it now. I can't think of one MP who still thinks it was a good idea. Given that the vast majority of MP's are well over 40 years old so much for your older and wiser heads.

    Once brexit is out of the way, he gets my full backing, renationise the railways. Utilities, water, electric, gas and sort the empty properties out that landlords are sitting on in the likes of London, as well as putting the squeeze on the tax havens and the people who do not want to pay there share of tax ;).

    Politics of envy eh....?
    Well 1) It ain't ever gonna happen anyway and
    2) It would be the ordinary working man that would have had to pay for it anyway unless you allowed your beloved
    leader to seize the assets of anyone that might have done alright for themselves.....

    The fella Tam Dalyell did his share of voting against war, be it Tory or Labour who were in power.

    Not at all @Tony Wilkinson@Tony Wilkinson I have no envy in my body, but I do believe the necessities of life should not be for the benifit of shareholders.

    There are a lot of people that are far from convinced Corbyn is wrong on Syria but they are either ridiculed or ignored by the mainstream media. People like General Johnathan Shaw, former commander of British forces in Iraq, Lord Shaw, former head of British Royal Navy and Peter Ford, former British ambassador to Syria. There are also lots of independent journalists like Robert Fisk and Pearson Sharp that have actually visited Syria after the alleged chemical attacks and have talked to people that live and work there including senior doctors, and they all say there was no chemical attack. Pearson Sharp has reported that there were western news crews from more mainstream outlets, including ITV that spoke to and interviewed the same people he did yet their interviews have never seen the light of day, presumably because what they were told did not fit the narrative they are trying to sell to the masses.

    We were right to go in to Iraq and hundreds of thousands of people are alive today because of it, The way the Americans dealt with Iraq AFTER the war and deposition of Saddam was a poor effort and kept the opposition and terrorists alive for more years than needed but the decision to go to war was fully vindicated, The development of a functioning democracy was always going to take years it always does ( Look at our own bloody history of establishing democracy )
    As for Syria it is a war of Obama's making, His false promises to those attempting to take over Syria in the Arab spring and then doing nothing when they needed the help he had promised and not enforcing his own red lines led to a vacuum that ISIS moved in to creating mass deaths and a real mess of a once beautiful and well educated country,
