This man is going to be the next UK Prime Minister and it's going to be fucking awesome.

Kill yourself. He's a dumb, vegetarian, joke, as are you by association.

Ha! Good effort, OP.
Though if May calls an early election it might not count for much.

Joking aside, what's to stop Corbyn pulling off a Trump like coup? He seems to draw a lot of support to his rallies. I think it's fair to say that the public are fed up of your everyday politician and they want something different, anti-establishment. The polls say Jezza is behind but we all know how accurate those are.

Mostly the fact that nobody likes him.

The allegory's a little trite, but Bernie Sanders overcame being a complete unknown and a hostile DNC to very almost beat HRC, point being that only a dafty would say it's impossible. Equally Corbyn's been around for a while now and is simply struggling to make an impression at all, something neither Sanders nor Trump could be accused of.

The polls, whilst confusing with Trump/Clinton, were inside the margin of error for normal polls. With Corbyn its quite different - he is double-digits behind May and the Tories.
|>>|| No. 79956
He hasn't come out with any good zingers and the memes aren't great. Of course even if he did turn into the Red Saville you'd still have the problem that Owen Jones would be buzzing around him.

He's like a scruffy Michael Foot, minus the intellect.

He's not nationalist enough. Have you not noticed that's on the rise everywhere?
|>>|| No. 79964
I doubt it. This is the man who said his objective is not to have any restrictions on immigration as doing so would "sow division".

>He's not nationalist enough. Have you not noticed that's on the rise everywhere?
I disagree with you, I think it is polarization rather than just nationalism. It is actually quite a typical trend post a depression. It isn't so much people swing to the right so much as to both extremes.
The absurd 'all men need to atone for their sexism and all whites should feel guilty' clickbait politics online would be the example of the left getting more weird and vocal.
In terms of numbers it would certainly seem the nationalists have it for now. But both Brexit and the Trump election were won by narrow margins so I wouldn't count on it.
Also give it 20 years and we'll probably find out both were rigged by russian hackers

This is more an example of how social media and capitalism work than the left "really" picking up steam. As Adam Curtis noted in Hypernormalization: Angry people click more, but outside social media the socially-focused left's message is nearly useless.
Meanwhile neoliberal "centrists" haven't yet been strangled out of left-wing parties after 2008. (Not that I'm against [i]centrism[/i per-se, but it's necessary to come up with a moderate alternative to a system that currently presents itself as lacking in alternatives.)
What's perhaps interesting is the SNP's "nationalism minus the nationalism" stance handing them so much electoral power. One has to wonder if with foresight (i.e. decades of horrible failure followed by a sudden breakthrough) a lefty anti-EU movement could've done the same for Britain. I have my doubts, given it'd likely be more socialist than social-democratic and harder to present as open-minded and internationalist (just opposed to one particular union.) but you never know.

How would Trump have faired if he were to run for PM against May?
|>>|| No. 79986
If I stopped there, someone might think I was clever. I need to ramble on a bit so they know I'm not, otherwise I'd be lying by omission.

I do not think we know enough about May to really say. Her form of mild nationalism I can see being extremely popular. We may have dodged a bullet getting her hen we did.
|>>|| No. 80011
Trump has children so he'll be savaged unless he is willing to invest in some knee-high boots. Still, it might be good to have someone point out her links to G4S.
|>>|| No. 80014
The reason why Trump won was because the left is so up it's arse, having Corbyn the pacifist Hamas supporting train shammer jibber jabber Momentum merchant is such an example.
Beardy Guardian cunt, fuck off to Sweden.

I don't understand why this thread wasn't the replacement for the next Corbyn thread.

Don't count your chickens before they hatch m4. Its not even been 2 years since the last general election.

Seems like Corbyn is taking a leaf out of Trump book in campaigning today, system is rigged, anti-establishment. Wonder how much voters will buy it.
|>>|| No. 82157
Don't care much for politics (because I live my life just fine), but I'm under the impression Labour is just for benefit scroungers now. Is this right?
|>>|| No. 82158
Where do you get that impression from out of curiosity? Like specifically what sources of information have given you that view?
|>>|| No. 82159
Possibility A: Corbyn is doing terribly because the media smears him
Possibility B: the media is smearing Corbyn because he's doing terribly
Anyone who believes A either has their head in the sand or is on Momentum's payroll. Any serious politician worth their salt knows how to handle the press. I could crap on Nelson's Column and handle the resultant PR storm better than Jezza manages a puff piece about his homemade jam.

Money where your mouth is then lad. CCHQ are always looking for press interns. Just try it, even with the easiest game in town i can guarantee that you, personally, will fuck it up.

When is Putin going to hack the Tory email system to give Corbyn a boost?

I was amazed how cooperative Assange was in the whole process. Stoking fires that 'there is more dirt on the way that we have' that never materialised. There is no way that exercise was about forced transparency, and exposing corruption. I wonder what the Russians offered him.

Yet apparently if you point this out to some morons they start asking you why you're defending the subject of the leaks.
|>>|| No. 82169
It's possible that both are in effect, you know. Even if we took the laughable move of assuming good faith on the part of the media, they're still atrociously lazy - turning out nonsense and then relying on spin doctors to correct them.
Ideally both Corbyn and the Media would be locked on a big rocket and fired into the sun. (Either the G-type main-sequence star or the offices of the newspaper, I'm not fussy if you fuel the rocket properly.)
|>>|| No. 82175
Wikileaks is just a publisher with a strong level of control from leakers on when the information they share can be released. Beyond that its just speculation, I mean you wonder what the Russians could offer with good reason because its not like they can stage a rescue.
Who is going to replace Dimbleby when he retires anyway? It seems like the BBC is going to have a real problem in a few years time not just with him but also Andrew Neil.

Huw Edwards was lined up to do the election in 2020, and is still the preferred successor for election night. I could see Marr taking on QT. He has the tenor to chair the debate and the hands to point at the audience members. John Humphrys has filled in before but he's only a few years younger than Dimbleby. Based on his performances on Newsnight, I'd keep an eye on James O'Brien.
My personal theory based on observations in 2010 and 2015 is that Dimbleby is actually dead and has been replaced by a robot. There's no way a 77 year old could have kept going from 10pm to 6pm with only a couple of hours sleep in the middle.
