Corbyn conned the young, he held rallies in safe seats which was questioned by reporters, Corbyn gave some old blarney when asked, this seat is yours already, so why campaign here, they never got it but i did straight away, the pictures were beamed through the news making it look like thousands were joining this new movement when it was the same old tired old socialists, he never fooled me, but if he makes power this country will suffer big time..............

They'd have to get up pretty early in the morning to catch you out, eh Bill. Maybe even stay up all night.

Labour membership numbers have been steadily increasing since Corbyn became leader, but it's probably just the same old socialists, so tired that they've forgotten they're already signed up.

This wouldn't happen in Norway.

Only 150,000 have joined the Labour party since polling day. Very poor show.

EDIT: After posting this, I have read the figure which has been widely reported, is "not recognised" by Corbyn's office. Instead they said the figure is 15,000.

That was painful...yet Dale seems to love it. Not listening to LBC anymore as they are simply another mouthpiece for the Tory Party.
You mean they said something you disagreed with and are now sulking off................
I've listened to LBC a fair bit over the last few weeks and although they are criticised as favouring the Tories I've found little evidence of it. All presenters play devils advocate and they have been scathing about the Tories in the latter stages of the election, mainly because May refused to be interviewed, the dementia tax and U turns. I think their questions on the Labour manifesto and budget numbers were fair game and was justified based on the weak responses.
They are only scathing on the Tories because they lost. We hear different things I suppose.

It's all about perception I guess. I spoke to a woman yesterday who said the only reason the Tories failed to win handsomely was the newspapers being biased towards Labour !

No, before the election too.
PS - They didn't lose, they just didn't do as well as expected.

They lost the majority they had before the election. Hence getting into bed with Satan's spawn.

I've been discussing/arguing the toss as to whether the Tories won the election or not. I maintain that nobody won, so everybody lost including the Tories. They are having to do a deal with, frankly, a bunch of bigots with past links to terrorists organisations in order to keep themselves in power. An embarrassing if not downright shameful act of politicking.

If you think he has had links then you must concede that May has links - no, not links - is actually getting into bed with them today. And not only so. By doing this she's showing what an absolute hypocrite she is after her and her party have lambasted Corbyn for doing much less in the past.

Again, it's downright shameful.

DUP are a fully engaged party in Parliament, whereas Sinn Fein do not even take up their seats which shows their contempt.

However, Corbyn met with the IRA when they were active in a bombing campaign, not just a political party.
