Comments on: The newest trend in politics? Losing to win. http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/09/12/the-newest-trend-in-politics-losing-to-win/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: hometown http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/09/12/the-newest-trend-in-politics-losing-to-win/#comment-1104406 Wed, 16 Sep 2015 05:15:06 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=43364#comment-1104406 Jeremy Corbyn is the least of your worries. The real worry is that Reuters has corralled all comments into this “Opinion” sector to protect the main topic writers from trolls. It’s nice that Reuters tries to diminish trolls; however, very few of Reuter’s opinion articles are on the top of my list of issues I care about. I do care about/have opinions about articles in their other sectors. I guess I’ll spend my time elsewhere, with other news sources. Good luck, Reuters, in your attempts to engage readers.

Corbyn has been elected by his party which allowed party activists to vote. As an ex member of the Labour party please let me explain. The rank and file of the party are far left wing and will always when given a choice elect a left wing leader. But the majority of labour voter are democratic socialists who will never vote for a left wing leader. I refer you to 1979 when the labour government controlled by the unions had the country massively in debt to the IMF. Then in 1983 got destroyed at the GE with a left wing leader, Michael Foot.

The Scottish independence referendum gave the Scottish Nationalist Party more publicity than they ever could have gotten otherwise. The Labor party electing a leader from the radical left guarantees free publicity from all of the would-be political analysts in the press, in other words from all of the press. All publicity is good publicity. That is the entire principle behind viral marketing.

Fact, not rumor or myth: he hangs out with Holocaust deniers.

Fact, not rumor or myth: he socializes with radicals who promote the killing of British soldiers, and celebrate 9/11 as justice.

It’s much, much worse for Britain than the silly posturing of a socialist as you portray here. They’ve had plenty of those, but not (yet) plenty of terrorist sympathizers and anti-Semites.
