I just find it very sad that people just repeat the same lie over and over and hope that one day we will all believe it ... Either that or they are just plain stupid !

For someone who really spouts bollocks, look no further than St Jeremy the gutless wonder. Listening to this weak, mealy mouthed performance I'm finally persuaded to spoil my ballot for the first time ever in this election (voted Labour last time, but can't vote for them any longer when I don't respect the current party leadership or believe in their policies).

Sounded perfectly fine to me.

People pick the oddest things to get worked up about sometimes.

He's a fence sitter, Eric. Not a leader. You need someone with a bit of arrogance and a large ego as the figurehead, not a quiet little sop that delegates responsibility to committees and colleagues. His personality is insipid and uninspiring unless you're one of the unquestioning band of hardcore devotees (and yes, I have seen Jeremy and listened to him speak in person on a few occasions).

High profile tub-thumping pronouncements often have unpleasant consequences.

What we need is sensible. What he said was eminently sensible.

You want large egos to vote for? They're there in spades.

To an extent yes - sure it wasn't the Labour Party that caused the 2008/09 calamity (and in fact Brown was instrumental in reducing its impact) , but neither was the Conservative Party and a global calamity like that takes years to pull out of, so your linked graphs showing how the economy (and many things we spend our money on like police, NHS, etc) have only just got back to where they were ten years ago and blaming the Tories is just as disingenuous as my calling it a Labour recession.

When I was in the US, Republicans used to say how bad Obama was doing but he was just sorting out the shit sandwich he had been handed by Bush and the global financial crisis and I thought it pretty disingenuous for them to do that - ditto your link and implications re the Tories.

So on that basis, you'd agree that Mr Corbyn can probably do better, or at least no worse, that the current incompetents CB?

Oh, come along.

Non sequitur is widely enough used and awkward enough to replace with something else to be perfectly acceptable in everyday use. It's in the same class as ad infinitum, et cetetera or status quo.
