new man? corbyn jeremy the is so boogie

Thread Contributor: firefingaPOLITICS So Jeremy Corbyn is the new boogie-man?

#1
As stated repeatedly, I am not British but tend to follow European politics a bit.

Listened to public radio again yesterday, programme on the scrap for new Labour leadership. So according to the programme, this Jeremy Corbyn guy is the candidate who is most popular with voters in opinion polls, yet the party-"establishment" is bashing him as "un-electable" ?

Admittedly, I haven't heard of his guy before. May some folks post opinions about the matter.

Corbyn threatens the status quo - so people are just queueing up to dismiss him as some left-wing nutter

but as Ally Fogg tweeted: "I'm not hard left. I'm an oasis of gentle moderation in a world of right wing extremism."

then there's this:

Already signed up to vote for him. It's about time labour sorted itself out and remembered what it's supposed to be doing as an opposition party. Not just agreeing with so much of the shite the tories are trying to push through.

I am yet to analyse Corbyn properly but as ever any mirror is a head-spinning receiver.

That Tony Blair "warning" had me thinking a bit tho. Why does that guy even care? Is this another case of pretending?

On a less fuzzy note, I read the aav rebuttal of Cooper and straw. It seems a very casual argument in part - that is, quantitative easing is percolated by a refusal to stick to a status quo. Essentially people are getting rosy eyes about the possibility of less welfare cuts and economic expenditure, but to do that Labour needs to liquidate what the pound is worth when they are thinking of pressing more money for both sides to reach a balance judgement.

The most important aspect of the current Corbyn-Hype IMO is the fact that for the first time in decades actually Thatcher-ite dogma's appear to be questioned on a larger scale. This is important beyond the UK, bc Thatcher/Reagan together shaped large chunks of politics all over the Western states that are still in effect. Favoring the financial sector (well, not really "favoring", but shaping the political sphere to serve exactly one purpose - to have the financial sector benefit from it). Call it "austerity", call it "neoliberalism".

Yeah wot firefinga said. Although, my main qualm with the electoral resume is what Skittles most recent Corbyn FB link by Monbiot writes about - Tony Blair has created a wall of 50 years old minimum for any likely voting for candidates within the government's sustem. Thats wrong and fiddly, like those antiquated CD racks that don't store digipaks.

I understand 'relative age = experience', but lots of the experience government candidates get is bums on seats then up ranting and raving circularly at each other, barbarous broadsheet bile, antiquated complaint lobbying...you know, in the end all the stuff you read in books.
