Their government is basically falling apart over the Brexit negotiations - the latest casualty was Boris Johnson, who led the Brexit campaign and quit because May wasn't going far enough, in his opinion.
Sure it isn't too late to just hold a second referendum and decide that the whole thing was a mistake? I'm honestly a little shocked Corbyn hasn't had the nerve to call for that.
Note: the only thing that these people care about are themselves, Johnson being by far the worst in that respect.
Hahahaha no. Corbyn is ideologically anti-EU. He'd happily see Brexit happen especially if his name is not attached to the disaster that will happen* if it goes ahead. He's dreaming of a socialist paradise, but the absolute opposite will happen. He absolutely lost me politically over Europe.
Point #1 - I'm sorry, I apologize, I don't think I made it nearly as clear as I should have how much of an absolute worthless tool Boris is.
Point #2 - you're obviously up on Corbyn's politics more than I as an American am, but I recall there was some speculation that he might actually have the balls to do it and he hemmed and hawed a bit before coming out in favor of not holding a second referendum. On one hand, yeah, on paper you'd expect him to be more in favor of Brexit than not, but on the other, a second chance at averting Brexit looks like it may actually be a winning political position, and considering Corbyn is a politician, after all, I kinda thought he might roll the dice.
Can he save the UK from the horrors of evil capitalism?Haha!
Corbyn is an old-school leftie who, unfortunately, is still stuck in the 80s politically. He was pretty much a constant rebel, and through an impressive grass-roots campaign got to be leader of Labour.
There are, however, problems with him:
> He has some really dubious friends, and has a history of pro-USSR (as was) and pro-terrorist (anti-imperialist ones) ties. I'm meh on this but it leaves a bad taste for a lot of people.
Unionist or Loyalist front?Many moons ago I went out with a girl from Norn Iron. It was quite eye-opening on several fronts!
