sorry, but how is this different from any one war for oil?

@pros

Not sure what point you are making but if you are referring to the inexcusability of the Iraq war I cannot agree with you more. The connection with Jeremy Corbyn's attitude to the IRA escapes me though.

@denis loretto - true, little to do with corbyn, more with language (there was a time when doubleya/blair would go on about the 'terrorists' etc and the temptation to shout 'look in the effin' mirror' back at the tv/computer screen was a bit much)

Pros,

Could you please re-write your post using proper English syntax and punctuation.

It's completely unintelligible.

I'm a little confused by Southwark Labour's approach to the leadership election.
The MP nominated one candidate (although is not going to vote for him) The local party is supporting another. I understand the council leader is supporting a third.
Is their a local Labour member who could explain?

One man's terrorist is another Man's freedom fighter as Tony Benn Rip used to opine. Jeremy cuts a Key Hardie figure. Probably why he visited South. Wales recently Hardie was a Merthyr Tydfil Mp 1890 to inspire the troops much to Neil Kinnock's annoyance. This traitor saw fit to denounce Jeremy as he did Mr Benn once saying we want prime ministers not a talking shop! Well prime minister or not he never stopped talking. I worked with Tony Blair when he was A Durham student. He was as unprincipled then as he is now. At least the Supreme had sort of principles in leaving Labour. Perhaps the 3 other so called candidates could follow suit or join the Tories. Real principle means Benn Senior. Corbyn. Nye Bevan. Enoch Powell and Nigel Farrage. Interesting that all these illumni were/are anti common market

Neil Coyle Mp another traitor and he hasn't been in the job 5minutes. He doesn't even respond to my emails. Perhaps. Peter Tatchell should have won all those years ago. And would. Have doneif the last of the old Liberals Mr Hughes had kept his snout out of it!

GNeil Coyle??? Another traitor to the original Labour party movement....careers only. It is fascinating how much these unprincipled tories in disguise suddenly become very principled over voting methodology in this leadership election....it us a sick joke. It is they not Jeremy who is leading the party to disaster...at this rate will be a miracle if anyone at all wants to join the circus sorry oarty

Anyone continuing their absurd delusion thinking that Corbyn would be a good thing for the Labour Party needs to be watching Newsnight this evening.

Several voters who had voted Labour in the past two elections - but not in the last election - were shown several speeches and interviews by the four candidates.

The voters were a good cross-section and they clearly were not activists or members - they were represented both by sexes, from different ethnic & social backgrounds and different ages.

Not a single voter said that they would vote for Labour in a general election if Corbyn was leader.

It was not as though they were particularly enthused or excited by the other three candidates - but it was the unequivocal nature of their antipathy to Corbyn which was striking - even shocking. Their was absolutely no doubt or hesitation in their minds that they were not going to vote for him!

The problem with extremists of any type is that they can never accept that they are wrong nor do they ever empathise with someone else's opinion nor are they in possession of basic common sense.

That's the problem with Corbyn - he's just spent his whole life in meetings surrounded by people who agree with him.

This is a disaster for Labour.
