Standing Ovation for Jeremy Corbyn in Brussels

Recommended Posts

So the contrast between Jeremy Corbyn's reception and that of Teresa May in Brussels is as stark as it was at Grenfell Tower. :-S

And this from the FT = hardly a left wing paper

All it shows to me is that Mr Corbyn is more likely to capitulate rather than negotiate so no wonder they like him.

 

His views are in stark contrast to the way the voters in so many EU counties are feeling, and starting to vote, and just goes to show how out of touch the EU leadership is with the electorate in the 28 nations.

 

As far as the EU showing any signs of reform to serve the people of Europe and not the political whims of the few - pigs might fly!

 

The sooner we are out the better!

May has already capitulated and backed down on her demands for trade talks before paying a divorce settlement. Because she depends on the DUP voting for her, she has to put the open border between North and South Ireland above the rest of us who are paying all the bribes to vote for her.... and who will be stuck in the Gridlock at Dover when Brexit starts >:-(

Shows Corbyn would be more lkely to get a trade deal.

If my taxes weren't bribing the DUP to buy votes for Teresa May and shut him out. :-S

 

I thought the public shut him out ... Maybe I'm wrong

 

Yes you are wrong - he would still have a say in it if Teresa May wasn't using our money to bribe DUP votes so she can over-ride him.

Which is especially worrying now the EU have got a hold over her - because she needs to keep the open border between North and South Ireland to keep her DUP support.

The Labour leader told his European allies that they needed to come up with “radical alternatives” for Europeans after years of austerity, rising job insecurity and falling living standards. 

 

“The neoliberal economic model is broken. It doesn’t work for most people,” he said, adding: “Our broken system has provided fertile ground for the growth of nationalist and xenophobic politics.”

Not me!

 

But you might miss things in the supermarket that are rotting in lorries at Dover.

But al least the Irish border will be open at great expense to keep May in her job. *-)

As we are leaving the EU it matters little what JC thinks the EU should do and when it comes to failed economics his party has a lot of experience to draw from.

 

That's not to say the current batch of self interested Tories are brilliant at running the country, but a bunch of self interested Reds is certainly not a better way forward for the UK.

 

As JC clearly failed to get any near a majority in the last election one does have to wonder on who's behalf he thinks he is talking?

Of course he did, just like the Remoaners won the Brexit vote.

 

Democracy is only fair if you win whereas socialism is only fair if you have no money or are part of the party elite!

Losing is the new winning ... Its a shame it wasn't around when Blair won his elections ... Maybe if he'd won but lost and the Tories had lost but really won then maybe we wouldn't have needed the austerity or had mass unlimited migration which being the main gripe for Leave voters ultimately meant Leave won Brexit but really they lost cos Remain won didn't they ... Losing never felt so good or confusing

Truth is labour didn't win the election and remain didn't win the referendum. However neither lost by much. There has since been a further sea change and for sure niether the Tories or the Brexiteers are sitting pretty and coasting it. Why else would they be so vociferous and defensive about both?

 

The Tories are finished as they have the poisoned chalice of Brexit to handle and cock it up they will for sure. I dunno about Corbyn. Seemed too left to me, I wish our choices were not so limited but they are what they are. I do think he genuninely cares about the people though and not just keeping power and his job like TM and the rest of the fruit loops. For me though like millions of others I would rather give him a chance and I can never forgive the Tories for Brexit ever.

It's only my opinion, but having sat on the opposite side of the negotiating table from Corbyn on numerous occasions in the days when he was a fulltime union official and aspiring Labour candidate, which I don't think most of you can claim, I think that the EU negotiating team should be praying that Corbyn could somehow take over the negotiation s for the UK. It would be like taking candy from a baby.
