As easy as being anti-EU when one has been drip-fed nothing but lies and negative stories about the EU for nearly 25 years....

Free haircuts for all so that nobody is stigmatised by looking scruffy. Perhaps mobile haircutters in the countryside for those who have difficulty making it to the salon. Will generate more employment too.

Free foot-rubs for single Mums.
Free access to any private estate with woodland that can be chopped and used for firewood.
Free carrots on Wednesdays for this currently, planning to or previously participating in industrial / strike action.
Full right to return and legal aid for anyone going on any kind of religious war, regardless of the government's position on it.
Land to be stripped from the monarchy and given to 'collectives'. Corbyn to march to each of them throughout his leadership and hand out little red books of guidance on how to be a good comrade citizen.

Sounds much better than what the Tories achieved during the past 9 years

14m in poverty
4m kids in poverty
726 homeless deaths in 2018 Record
1.6m food bank parcels Food banks in schools
NHS/social care in meltdown
130000 deaths through austerity Handing NHS to Trump

And that is the short version ...

And I love carrots !

Free beard removal.

In fact I'd make it compulsory.

Yeah, it's tough clearing up the mess that a Labour government and a global financial meltdown leave.

If Mr Corbyn had been in power through the same period we'd be eating gruel and hanging the elites.

There are no rules here, remember. It's just say something and pretend it's gospel.

I just saw on the news that Chief Exec pay will be limited to 350,000 a year. It's laughable. It's like Labour want to fail.

Poverty is now defined as inequality - if those at the top got 10% better off over the past few years and those at the bottom got 5% better off - we have more "poverty".

Homelessness is driven by mental health issues and the inability to put people into asylums, along with EU migration.

Food banks give out free food - what's not to like, giving out free stuff is a booming sector.

NHS getting record funding.

Austerity deaths due to what?

NHS has not been and will not be "handed to Trump" - fake news.

It always surprises me how authoritarian leftists like Labour want to get - to micro manage people's lives to fit their idea of how things should be.

The only people who should be involved in a CEO's pay are the shareholders, if they are happy how their money is being spent it has nothing to do with government (aside from ensuring it is correctly taxed).

Tonight's circus is a total waste - two opposites being asked questions without their manifestos published, no independent oversight, and every other mainstream party excluded.
Why ITV just don't call it Strictly-No-Use beats me...

Carrots are yummy in cakes!

Well I doubt he will need someone to come in, mid speech, and tell him what to say, as happened with Johnson in his speech to the CBI,. People are asking how the country can afford these things, last year Amazon made £180 BILLION in UK sales, and paid £0 in tax, so that's only one company, Labour's plan is to make them pay tax, simple. There are a huge number of questions voters need answering by Johnson, Jennifer Acuri, Aaron Banks, Islamophobia, Nazin (the UK citizen banged up in an Iranian jail whose situation he made so much worse when the was foreign secretary, Johnson's sacking from two public posts, Johnson's personal position isn't one that the UK should have as a leader.

Not sure if I will watch the debate. Johnson will mostly peddle lies and untruths, Corbyn will painstakingly describe a socialist agenda too far for many Brits, and my two favorite remainiacs have not even been invited.
