Thankfully he isn't the PM. If by some cataclysmic event he does end up in No10, I'm out of here with every brass Razoo I possess.

Maybe not leave the country, but I have contingency plans in the offing - just in case. Plan for the worst etc...

"Grandad Jeremy - what did you do during Brexit". "Errrrrrrrr, I gave a couple of speeches and nearly expressed an opinion".

I don't know why people are so scared of him as a PM. He wouldn't actually do anything. We'd have five years of dithering and he'd be gone.


This tw@t at No11 would be more scary.

Remember, this is the bloke who was sacked by Ken Livingstone while at the GLC for being too left wing. That has to take some doing :D

I cant wait for abbot to be wheeled out at the next election to show us how she has recovered from her last alzheimers display. I am sure she has recovered well. Anyone know what she has got on corbyn to still be on the cabinet?

It would be a close-run thing as to whether Johnson or Corbyn is more incompetent. At least we've found out about Johnson's incompetence as Prime Minister very quickly, though it wouldn't have taken a fortune teller to predict that.

The thing to remember is that in 100 years time, a Corbyn Govt will probably be long forgotten. Bojos few weeks in charge and the preceding catastrophe of May and Cameron won't be.

Ah good ol collective memory.

I bet Churchill didn’t reckon on being discussed and referenced more often in the 2010s than in the entirety of his ‘51-55 PM stint.

I think May will be pretty much forgotten, much like Brown. No election win, and nothing actually happened.

List of 82 economists write to the FT, saying that the FT's criticism of labour's economic plans are wide of the mark.

Ah, the lefties at Citibank and Deutsche Bank are of the same opinion, it seems... as reported in The Telegraph:

Jeremy Corbyn, the scourge of bankers and avowed opponent of capitalism, is winning support from unexpected new quarters: two of the biggest global banks operating in the City of London are warming to the Labour leader.

Unlikely as it may seem, he is now seen as the lesser of two evils by analysts at Citibank and Deutsche Bank, respectively American and German titans of the financial system.

“Is Corbyn as bad as no-deal? Perhaps no longer,” said Christian Schulz at Citi.

It is not that the financiers favour the opposition leader’s plans for “higher taxes, tighter labour laws, spending increases and the nationalisation of network industries”, but that this may cause less harm than leaving the EU without a deal.

He's a danger though as he comes across far more professionally than either Boris or Corbyn. He was very calm on Marr this morning and even answered the questions he was asked. If he became Labour leader I think it would be a big danger to the Tories and we could end up in the clutches of a hard left Government.
