Sugar nails Corbyn rather well...

“All they’ve done with Corbyn is they’ve taken him to Matalan, they’ve bought him a suit, they’ve cut his hair and they’ve cleaned him up a little bit. He looked like a real lefty hippy when he first came on the scene.
So they’ve dressed him up, told him what to say and he’s become a proper politician now – in other words, a liar.”

Hardly. I've heard more astute analysis from a bloke shouting out of the window of a white van.

Agreed. Can someone clarify what it is he is alleged to have lied about?

Jeremy Corbyn denies promising to wipe graduates' student debts

Labour leader said before election he would ‘deal with’ debts, but now says that was not a commitment to write them off

Jeremy Corbyn has insisted Labour did not commit to wiping graduates’ student loan debts during the general election campaign, after Conservative MPs accused the party of knowingly misleading students.

So he didn't say "I promise to remove all student debt"?

Some lie, that one.

Have we given up on the IRA sympathiser bullshit now as well, or can we re-enact that one?

If you can show me where he said he'd wipe student debts I'll acquiesce.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
