In the UK we have a campaign of disruption, orchestrated and organised by a political party and its supporters in open view. Children are being used for political ends, being refused the right to make their own decisions and openly debate with any cause that is not approved by the Corbyn administration. It is a deliberate and sordid attempt to keep children ignorant and ill informed, and to make sure they keep singing the party song.


Sounds like a bunch of hyperbole to me.

Give me numbers. How many incidents?

Not really the problem as it is not 1952.

However it would be gratifying if their sole reason for wanting Corbyn wasn't that his names fits the tune to a pop song. Wouldn't it?


Of all the things to attack them for putting his name to White Stripes guitar riff has got to be the most important.


It is certainly the most pertinent. Just imagine that funny old hipster uncle who promises to pay off all of your debts, and still knows his way around Glastonbury!! Too good to be true. I am surprised he didn't offer them sweets.

It's completely irresponsible of him to try and address the young, after all most of them don't even own property! Why can't he be like a normal politician and only address the middle aged well off?

I wouldn't call it addressing them. More like bribing them with promises he has no intention of keeping. Emily Thornberry concedes that it would cost well over £100 billion to cancel current University debt. Those poor gullible students have more chance of winning the lottery.

The debt will be cancelled by whoever is in power eventually as it isn't worth the bother of trying to collect it from people who are never going to earn the sort of money needed to repay it.

Obviously it would cost nothing to cancel university debt if some Tory twat hadn't sold it to a debt collection agency.

And if you are going to tell lies at least make the plausible, Corbyn never said he would look at cancelling existing debt he said he would stop charging fees from now on and look at the feasibility of wiping out the already accrued debt.

As the people he was addressing - students and former students - are more intelligent than you I am sure they understood what he meant even if the charitable explanation is that you didn't.
And sometimes I ride on bus x82, say what!
