He's said and done nothing of note on Brexit or any other policy since the last GE and suddenly he's back in man of the people campaign mode. How did we end up with this choice as our nation's leader?
"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
Remember, this is the bloke that the Tory No-Dealers have managed to make look almost reasonable.
Only from the point of view of lefties.
I am definitely not a leftie and definitely feel that Boris has made the prospect of JC less scary
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.
