From around 1:40 for reference... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-36863378
To me he gave a completely typical politician's fudged answer.  What did you understand by it?  Where does he stand on the single market and/or free movement of people?

Beatles reunion!!!?... now that would be more miraculous than the Pope singing a duet with Mother Theresa (and Naughty Nun on Bass).

Not only Labour leader but rather dapper and at the cutting edge of fashion...

Hypothetically speaking.

This is what I mean by him being a student in perpetuity. 
Just my opinion of course but Jeremy Bamber is innocent and a couple from UK, unknown to T9, abducted Madeleine McCann - motive unknown.

Even if he doesntget elected as PM his little or big dagger will be there in opposition..no ones done it better than him

Im a bit cnfused though why you see a lasting "marriage" as a sign of anything apart from a couple deciding to stay married, as if me than ne makes one morally inferior, id argue the opposite, oh well

Yes I agree it's always good to have a strong opposition but I'm not sure JC can offer it.  Time will tell.  Early days.  New PM and JC is still relatively new.

I'm not suggesting those that have 3 or more marriages are morally inferior.  Just think dropping out of college AND 3 marriages might mean he's a bit fickle that's all.  It's just an observation.

Owen Smith got 300 people when he went to Liverpool, so it looks like Corbyn [who is a politician btw, not a religious leader, pop star or footballer] is well ahead. Ten thousand turning out in the rain wanted to hear what he had to say. I don't think they were there because of his dress sense, my guess is they're sick of the slick, well-tailored, soundbite spouting, completely out of touch career politicians.

In all seriousness G-Unit what else is there to do in Liverpool on a wet Monday eve?

How on earth can anyone take Corby seriously now when there are as many scowling behind him in Parliament as are in front of him.  The man's an idiot if he thinks he will survive much longer imo.  Jeez how many MP's support him anyway these days?

The point is that none of those scowling elected him [although 36 of them nominated him to enter the leadership contest in 2015]. The other three candidates had 168 nominations between them, with Andy Burham as the favourite with 68 nominations. He was praised at the time as a candidate who actually listened to party members.
Well, if he was listening it seems he was misinterpreting what he was hearing.

The party membership saw an opportunity to elect the kind of leader they wanted and they took it. Since then they have seen the reaction of the PLP and the 'establishment' [I include the media in that]. Will they accept that they were wrong, or will they see the reaction as proof that they were right? I suspect the latter.

Well, staying in and watching TV would seem to be a better idea on the face of it than going out in the rain to listen to a badly dressed pensioner rabbiting on. I don't think it was just people looking for a way of filling time, but if that's what you choose to believe, fair enough.

Liverpool isn't quite the boring place you seem to think it is, by the way;

I feel guilty.  I said "In all seriousness.."  8(8-))

But seriously, Liverpool is home to socialist firebrand Derek Hatton.  Some 65 million people in UK.  Some 10k turned out to hear what JC had to say on a wet Monday eve in Liverpool.  How many do you think would turn out in the Shires regardless of weather conditions?  JC needs to make inroads hitherto denied and I just don't see that happening.

If he's still leader at the time of the next GE the media will play on the fact he said he would not press the nuclear button and TM said she would.  Most people see nuclear weapons as a necessary evil. 

I have visited Liverpool on many occasions.  My Pete has a bit of a thing about military history and we visit HMS whatever.  I amuse myself doing other stuff while he wanders about HMS whatever.

As I have already pointed out, simply having thousands turn up to see you waffle on on top of a podium in Liverpool doesn't necessarily mean you have countrywide support - just ask Michael Foot (oh, he's dead, but never mind).  I think Corbyn thrives on the adulation of the crowd of 5000, and will do anything to cling on to his position so that he can keep on being adored by his faithful flock, never mind what happens to the party he supposedly represents.  How selfish can one man be?!

"Jeremy Corbyn put the creation of a million new jobs at the heart of his pitch for re-election as Labour leader as he unveiled a ten-point plan to “transform and rebuild Britain” today.

Vowing that “no-one, and no one part of the country, should be left behind”, he set out a £500bn investment programme covering infrastructure, industry and the construction of a million new homes, half of them council-owned."

£500 BILLION??!

He seems so intense and devoid of any soh.  I think he would drive me nuts if I had to spend any length of time with him but I suspect the feeling would be mutual.  From his Wiki page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Corbyn

... "telling Simon Hattenstone of The Guardian, "I don't spend a lot of money, I lead a very normal life, I ride a bicycle and I don't have a car"

I wound hardly call riding a bicycle and not having a car "normal"?  Apart from teenagers who have just passed tests and still students I can't think of anyone I know who doesn't own a car.  For those living and working in London it's probably easier not to have a car but most people don't live in London.   

It seems his second marriage ended as he couldn't agree with his wife over their son's education/choice of school.  His third wife says he's not very good at housework.  He sounds difficult to get along with and impractical.

Interviewed by The Huffington Post in December 2015, Corbyn refused to say what his religious beliefs were, saying that they were a "private thing", while denying that he was an atheist. He has said that he is 'sceptical' of having a god in his life. Why can't he just say what his religious beliefs are?  Surely if he wants to become PM the public have a right to know?  His clandestine meetings with the IRA and Hasmas may have converted him to Catholicism or Islam.  It seems to me he just doesn't want to offend the various faiths.  He's vocal about his son's education and yet his faith is a "private matter"   &%+((£

He left school at 18 having achieved two E grade A levels.  Doesn't sound like he can knuckle down and apply himself.   

He's probably well intentioned but his complete Wiki page says it all imo: airy-fairy.  Imo he has zero chance of becoming PM.

We can all play fantasy lets "transform and rebuild Britain" today with £500 billion.  Where exactly is the £500 billion coming from?

It's not a question he ever need seriously answer as the likelihood of him ever having to put his money where his mouth is is precisely zero.
