    Yes. He could be a lot worse.
    Sure, we would get a second referendum but we could also get renationalisation and nuclear disarmament.

    If we had a second referendum we'd have to have a third, and maybe a fourth. How many referendums do you think we should have?

    Could nationalisation possibly be any worse than privatisation?

    He's right. What's the point of having a nuclear deterrent when it will never be used in anger?

    I think it's back to the drawing board for you?

    As I understand it another election would not give another referendum. It would more likely say what the party would do about Brexit.

    As far as renationalisation. The majority of the British Public is in favour of any Nationalisation Labour may do.

    That is something of an Oxymoron. If the UK feared it clearly it would not happen so no need to be feared. It would be more honest to say you fear it or the Tories feared it or neo liberalism fears it. Is this you going back to including everyone else in your view? Your view so the UK view?

    That would be accurate. If you say the UK you are saying at least the majority of the UK and clearly if the majority did not want Labour elected as people get a vote he would not. I can't read your link. I am guessing propaganda. If we were going out on a No Deal which was the alternative, the pound would be falling so fast my daughter would be rejoicing that she would in real money only need to pay a fraction of what she thought for the house she has just bought!

    If you dismiss the fears of The City, that doesn't make these fears any less real or any less British.
    The City is the UK's Wall St.

    The Tories are in power because Corbyn is keeping them there.

    It's a sorry situation to be in, but it's one that we're in.

    Absolute nonsense. Interesting though that you do not believe in Democracy and want the UK to be run by the Stock Market. Just as well for me that plans are moving for Indyref 2

    I believe in democracy, not in UK being ran by the state.

    Why should my government also be my utility company?
    Why should my government also be my transport company?
    Why should the state run the UK?
    What of the UK being a place to invest? Let's have capitalists running business that dictate our lives; let them compete to give us a better service at an affordable price.

    What of the work of independent watchdogs and government regulatory bodies? - Are you suggesting all these laws against having a monopoly or being part of an oligopoly aren't working?
    Why replace a system of checks and measures, for a system of total control?

    We already care about our healthcare and its rising costs, you want to add to the list of things to care about?

    How much money would a nationalised service cost our existing nationalised health service?

    Labour needs to bring back Tony Blair to save the day.

    Hmmmm....

    Who was Tony Blair?
    Some guy who's Britain bought into a recession and benefit culture UK, worked paid less than looking for work in Tony Blair's day. No.

    Tony Blair isn't popular in today's domestic politics in the UK.

    The UK is now an oligarchy, where our parliamentary servants have suddenly become our masters.

    Free trade sold us out?
    What about fair trade?
    What if UK adopted a fair economy based on fair trade and priced itself out of the market? - it'll never happen.

    Jeremy Corbyn wants a command economy where the state control everthing.
    NTS - National Travel Service
    NPS - National Power Service
    to take from our NHS.

    I think we can forget Corbyn - he'll soon be yesterday's man, same as May will be yesterday's woman, hopefully.
