They’ve all been radicalised. It’s takes a special kind of indoctrination to get working people to drop their own priorities and believe that the billionaire upper class are working for them lol...This is horrific. I mean, it is understood that a lot of working class leave voters are turkeys voting for Christmas, but to see them articulate their idiocy here is beyond belief. "If he lied to the queen he'll lie to anyone!" 30s later "You'll get an honest answer out of him that's for sure!"
It was part of a larger list compiled by someone else after last night's (effective) Channel 4 Dispatches. I trimmed it for social media use. The trimmed sections were largely relating to the wider economy that while very important, I decided would be less useful on Facebook.
For all the concern about Corbyn having too much baggage (as unfounded as that baggage is, the concern that that baggage is baggage isn't totally unfounded, you know?), maybe that works in his favour now? We've had half a decade of throwing every flavour of shit against the wall to get some to stick, that the wall is just covered in shit now so whatever they throw just slides off.
They played their hand already, people aren't going to buy whatever desperate bollocks they come up with to splash on the Telegraph
Someone posted this earlier but its a banger.
Woooof at this. Another car crash for the cons.
Yeah I feel like I'm missing something, I don't get why people are saying this is good for Labour?the trump quotes are good for the tories because the bbc headlines will spend all day being like
‘trump rubbished labour’s claim about the nhs’
& on the news at 6&10, something like
‘labour have been using the claim that boris johnson is going to put the NHS on the table in trade talks as an attack line all election, it’s corbyn’s favourite line, yet after the presidents strong denial today in london today that will be very hard to stand up anymore. laura k, bbc news’
Him praising Boris is something that can be twisted, but yeah he's been briefed to show restraint and he's doing that. I think it'd take a lot to get a silver bullet out of him on this trip.
it would have been dynamite for labour if trump had gone off script and said “we’re going to have a great deal, great for the nhs, brexit is going to be a great success” and corbyn could take it to the final debate....this is not good.
it gives every tory an easy line on tv and radio “this is rubbish...trump himself has denied it..we are building 40 hospitals and hiring 50,000 nurses we love the nhs”
