    dunno why people find that difficult to understand
    Cos compared to the Tories or Brexit party which is "Out" - it is.

    This from an ITV journalist

    Joe Pike
    Bumped into Dominic Cummings.
    Me: Ready for the campaign Mr Cummings?
    DC: We’re not going to have one.
    Me: Really?
    DC: They’ll vote for EU citizens and we’ll have to pull it.
    Can this possibly be true? That the Tories will let the amendments make them cancel the election bill after begging for one for so long? That will make them look like even bigger cunts.

    "the greatest act of national self-harm" etc is sheer hyperbole. But certainly most of Labour would prefer remain.

    Probably. But the point is that the country is completely divided on Brexit. Taking a definite position, as per the Tories or LibDems, means effectively saying fuck what half the country thinks. (Though actual LibDem policy seems to change every day.) Labour is therefore "neutral" in the sense of giving people a meaningful choice. Rather than Brexit (any Brexit) vs. Remain (as in the original referendum): a specific harm-reduction Brexit vs. Remain. (You could do the same with Tory maddog Brexit vs. Remain, but the Tories wouldn't agree to that. Nor would most of Labour probably.) In the event of a second vote along those lines, Labour would doubtless campaign to remain, and most Labour voters would vote to remain, as we did last time. Labour isn't the problem here.

    Bollocks. You just don't like Corbyn.

    No. It's slightly more complicated than yes or no. But you'd have to be a complete moron not to understand it.

    I was enthusiastic about him when he first became leader, believe it or not. I've got off him since then, mainly because of his utter uselessness in the face of an unprecedented crisis.

    So yeah, I don't like him. For good reasons. There's no "just" about it.

    I've heard him described as useless etc a fair bit, but I haven't seen half as many suggestions as to what he should be doing. People go on about the opposition being weak, but he's been pointing out what the Tories do to the NHS etc the whole time, people just don't care.

    People pretend it's something else they object to but of course it's just left wing policies they can't stomach

    I'm perfectly happy with his policies, I just want him to be more popular. And I don't think he can do that (very happy to be proved wrong). I realise it's a bit like Napolean asking for generals who are lucky but I want someone to have his policies and fucking win. Or at least stop the Tories gaining a big majority - if that happens it's gonna be a very very dark time for the UK for the foreseeable future.

    from the outside, it appears corbyn largely lacks leadership qualities. leadership is more than just believing in something, it's being able to articulate a vision that rallies people, motivates them to join in and work together to make what you believe in actually happen. he seems to alienate as many people as he motivates.

    But Corbyn isn't. I just want him to change so he's a winner. I don't know how he does that but he has to... or else find someone else who can.

    I want to be wrong, I want the polls to be wrong... I want Corbyn to win by a massive majority. But I fear that the opposite is gonna happen. This is gonna be the dirtiest and most important GE of our lifetime, the downside is catastrophic.
