The problem I have with Corbyn is that like ed millibars he has never put forward a coherent and cogent set of policies which stand up to serious scrutiny

Moreover Corbyn has been an utter disaster with never having given a proper lead on the EU

Mrs maybe however is even worse as she has had all the cards and failed miserably to win a single trick

We have the weakest government ever matched by the most ineffective opposition

Corbyn did have the only set of policies costed out of all the parties. The downside was that those policies would have had most people to some or more extent worse off as a result. I didn't vote for him in the end because of the leeches in his shadow government. Their position on Europe is poor your right on that. None of the other party policies stood up to proper costing and now we have the DUP costing us as taxpayers more. Being in Huntingdon I'd love to have voted for the Labour candidate as he is a top man but that meant a vote for the leeches, despite JDog being the alternative

the further problems included that though mcdonnell claimed it was fully costed , the costings were never fully stress tested by seriously neutral analysts

further, whenever spokesman were asked about the figures relating to their own departments dneither abbott or mcdonnell , nor indeed the blessed corbyn could not quantify the figures

whilst other serious spokesmen within labour were overstating the benefits (eg "we will write of all student debt") which influenced many people but was not actually in the manifesto



mrs may however avoided all discussion, thought she was strong and stable , asked for a mandate on her position on brexit , and failed to get it

we have a very weak government, we have an even weaker, utterly uncohesive opposition ,, yet we are still persisting with the most catastrophic change this country has experienced since the 1940
