What does Jeremy Corbyn think?

TAP – Say ‘COR’ as he trots out his policies and proposals in order to get support, which, of course, will all end up in the ‘BIN’ should he ever get elected.

 

A brief summary of the beliefs and policy proposals of the newly elected Labour leader

 

 

Jeremy Corbyn has been named the leader of the Labour party after a landslide election victory.

The left-winger’s lead in the polls had been greeted with trepidation by established figures in the party. He’s been branded unelectable, with some warning he would take the party down with him.

Tony Blair has described some of Mr Corbyn’s policies as “old-fashioned”. But on the issues, it turns out the public agree with a lot of what Mr Corbyn has to say.

The public overwhelmingly backs renationalising the railways 

https://yougov.co.uk/news/2014/05/11/why-do-people-support-rail-nationalisation/
Putting railways back into public sector ownership has cross-party support, with even Conservative supporters divided evenly over the issue – 42 per cent back renationalising the railways; 42 per cent oppose it.

Energy companies would be renationalised. Mr Corbyn has said he would be “much happier” with a “regulated, publicly run service delivering energy supplies”. There would be a moratorium on fracking, which Mr Corbyn has called “dangerous to the environment”.

The Labour leadership contender has also said he would consider re-opening Britain’s coal mines. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-33772024

 

There’s a public appetite for a 75% top rate of tax on incomes over £1m

http://classonline.org.uk/docs/YouGov-Class_Polling_Results_120522_Economic_Policies.pdf

Mr Corbyn says he wants to bring back the 50% tax rate, which applied to those paid £150,000 (roughly the top 1 per cent of earners).

He’s also said he would be in favour of going higher if it meant raising more money. Is there a public appetite for this? There may be: YouGov polling found 56 per cent of the public support a 75 per cent top rate of tax similar to that proposed by France’s Francois Hollande, with only 31 per cent opposed.

 

Two thirds of Brits want to see an international convention on banning nuclear weapons

 

Mr Corbyn opposes the £100bn renewal of Britain’s Trident nuclear system and campaigns across the world for the scrapping of weapons of mass destruction. He is a long-time supporter of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and is on of its three vice-chairs.

It appears the public share his opposition to renewing Britain’s nuclear deterrent – a poll for ComRes last year found 64 per cent of the public wanted to see an international convention on banning nuclear weapons.

 

Six out of ten people want to see rents controls on landlords

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/almost-nobody-in-the-uk-is-opposed-to-rent-controls-for-housing-9955679.html

Mr Corbyn says the best way to bring down the housing benefit bill is to control private rents, which have become a larger and larger part of Britain’s housing mix in the last few decades.

According to YouGov, a plurality of the public would support the state directly setting rent levels at 45 per cent to 43 per cent. For more generalised rent controls, the pollster found earlier this year that only 6.8 per cent of the public are opposed with 59 per cent in favour.

 

 

Jeremy Corbyn wants to cut tuition fees and so does the public

https://yougov.co.uk/news/2015/03/03/half-support-labours-tuition-fee-cut/

Mr Corbyn announced a £10bn plan to scrap tuition fees: £7.1bn would be the cost of providing free university education for all and £3bn would be the cost of reinstating maintenance grants scrapped by George Osborne.

Pledging to axe tuition fees entirely is so radical in today’s politics that polling companies have not bothered to ask the question for years, but 49 per cent of people backed Ed Miliband’s pledge to cut tuition fees from £9,000 to £6,000 earlier this year, which tells us Mr Corbyn’s policy must have public backing.

 

The public were on the same side as Jeremy Corbyn in Iraq War debate 

One of the defining features of Jeremy Corbyn is his strong opposition to the Iraq War, which he claims is a major factor in the problems currently haunting the Middle East. He described the decision to invade Iraq in 2003 as the worst legacy of Tony Blair’s government. The public share his opposition to the Iraq War, albeit in hindsight.

 

The public were also in sync with Corbyn when it came to bombing Syria

Public opinion again chimed with Mr Corbyn’s views when it came to whether Britain should take part in air strikes over Syria when evidence emerged of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad using chemical weapons against his own citizens.

    Remember Obomber yes we can. Well here’s Corbyn yes we fuckin’ can.
    All the wee wifies moist with anticipation voting for the belief that the rulers give a fuc*. Get real. love ian. “bottle of wine” don’t fall for it.

    Corbyn”s brother is Piers
    REVEALED: Will climate-change denier Piers scupper brother Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership bid?
    http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/593809/Labour-leader-race-climatechange-denier-Piers-brother-Jeremy-Corbyn
    Apparently brother Piers has been supporting him.
    Corbyn is anti-fracking.
    Jeremt Corbyn is a Gooner and pro Palestine. A double whammy for Spurs fans… ?

    He is pro peace, pro talking, he is doing policy not personal attack. He is not Obomba, but of course we may be disappointed. The chants of “Yes We Did” were nauseating.

    I am a Ron Paul G Edward Griffin anti-Collectivist free market fan. However, economic policy seems almost irrelevant when we are perpetually at war. I am a fan of Corbyn becasue he does appear to be authentically pro peace, anti foreign entanglement and may well consider concept such the Bradbury Pound.

    This guy will meet people e.g. the Iranians or who ever, rather than rattle the war chest. Will ‘power’ compromise him? History tells us usually it does. We will see.

    Political parties are old hat, must come to an end… Corbyn could be a stepping stone to that end? He appears to care about people. He doe not appear to be a psychopath – yet!

    Hope and change. For real this time.

    Rigged or it just would not happen, Robbin Cook or John Smith were conveniently silenced,

  5. Aldous says:

    “The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them in parliament.”

    “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.”

    “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”

    All quotes by ~ Vladimir Lenin (Ulyanov)

    The ‘election’ of Jeremy Corbyn to one of Der Drei Führers of the one party with three names is just another chapter in ‘The Life and Crimes of the LibLabContrick-LibLabConspiracy’.

    “If he wants out of the EU I’ll be happy to share a platform with him anywhere”. @Nigel_Farage on @jeremycorbyn’s Labour victory.

    From LBC Twitter.

    Corbyn Farage is an interesting combination. Corbyn states he is inclusive.

  7. Tapestry says:

    Corbyn just has to be a deception. If elected, he’ll volte-face as did Blair on the EU.

    • ferryt says:

      Total deception, as you said Tap:

    • Sorry for off topic (maybe Mike could create a prominent whiteboard noticeboard I could display this burning comment) (email to my Dad about health)

      Interesting how healthy appetite for dinner, hunger, where the stomach and intestines are clean, all the digestive enzyme glands are working, the bidy feels well, and all systems are switched on saying hunger

      its interesting how healthy appetite, is one thing. Yet a very real other thing is dulled appetite, yet increased DESIRE for food, that feeling of wanting dinner, looking forward to it. But not really being hungry for it

      Byron Richards wrote a study and also articles, showing how leptin is involved, not just on fat cells. leptin is also involved in the brain, in the reward system, dopamine receptors.

      Overall looking above the whole situation. I am pretty sure it is mineral deficient soils/foods, omega 6 excess, GMO foods too and toxic roundup (Bill and Melinda huge shareholding in Monsanto)

      I will also say this

      There seems to be some kind of almost magical relationship between mineral RATIOS in the body, this must mean too minerals in and outside cells like potassium in, sodium out, making an electrical potential

      I think we are electrical beings, we generate energy, power

      I think lots of things are interfering with this and our cells are falling back on, other , less efficient, poorer ways of making energy ends meet. Heres one example

      Anaerobic metabolism, no oxygen needed. As more cells generate their energy this way (much much less efficient, less ATP, more toxic waste products), I think this is what Wilsons referring to how everyone today is in a Yin state. Yin metabolsilm. Theese are physics concepts

      To end, I will say, cancer starts and grows in an anaerobic medium, they generate their ATP anaeribivally, cancers are like fungus and covered up evidence seems to indicate this is the case. Some cancers anyway

      But my point here is, its interesting how hunger healthy appetite, is one thing……Leptin based hunger and a totally different set of metabolic switches turned on, healthy ones turned off, happen

      I find that very interesting

      And I wonder whether the Bilderberg food corporations that meet regularly are aware of this fact

    • will also say I think we are electromagnetic beings too, and I think,

      I know youll disagree, I don’t think our bodies just work on th Newtonian level

      I think our bodies and health operate on the subquantum level too and I think this is tying in with Yin and Yand physics concepts

      and things Wilsons saying goodnight xxxxxx

      • Men Scryfa says:

        You are very close to the truth. It is causing imbalance and stealing the energy from us. This is a very big part of it.

    • Its really up to you. Your 60s are a crucial crossroads. if you want to become robust and healthy, get on board soon. Because the older one gets, theres less etheric energy available to play with, to regenerate the body. Theres still some, and its never too late. But I urge you to turn your backs on the GP and Consultant unless its an emergency, broken bone, etc. Modern medicine is actiually very good and honest, with orthopaedics. I have no problem with that. A and E too, a very honest branch of modern medicine. They have their roots in traditional help down the ages. The rest has been very much corrupted putting it mildly. We could say what about obstetrics? Yes a very noble good branch of medicine, what could be more noble and good? pregnant women and children? That’s correct. Except the drug companies have heavily infiltrated here and put it this way. I wouldn’t let my child be born in a hospital id have a home birth (apart from an unforeseeable emergency) which I don’t anticipate.

      The point im trying to make is. I don’t just want you alive in your 90s. I want you healthy, well, able to think, move, be independent, and still look young. Youngish, that means robust with lots of etheric energy in you. This isn’t so outrageous as youd think, I want you to be this way.

      I want you to be this way since im a late starter and it will be a while before grandchildren are produced and when they are produced, I want you to be strong and well, and realisning, its years since you’ve been to see the GP. THIS IS WHAT I WANT as you play with your grandchildren

      I think ive said all I need to goodnight xxxx

      • Men Scryfa says:

        Adam one of the keys is to get the etheric energy into the bones. Working with the breath and to really pack it into the bones.

    • And Henry, considering the whole political proicess in the UK is a Truman SHpw sham, totally infiltrated, MSM too, total sham. Corbyn too
      I say modestly I think my comments just now are far more valuable, and interesting, than talk about Corbyn possible MI5 asset

    • and I will also tie my last comment in to my parents
      to the assisted dying Tavistock propaganda subtle Mind Techniques done in last fw days in MSM. ‘Experts’ wheeled in. Its all to manipulate the millions of brains
      Its very clear to met.
      These Satanist Talmudists, detest us, want to massively wipe us out. This is very clear

    • NPP says:

      I’m afraid you may be right TAP, but time will tell…. Corbyn seems to be authentic. May be he’s not. May be he willbe compromised. Interesting non the less.

  8. Lynn says:

    Well said Tap.. Here here,

  9. nick says:

    I think some people here may be missing the point.
    A victory has been scored on behalf of rank and file ordinary people who were members of the labour party, or joined recently so that could vote for JC.
    Despite negative media coverage and big political figures trying to marginalise him, the voices of Anti war/Pro Palestine/ traditional labour values people have been shown to be represented.

    If it was all a controlled opposition situation, the controllers would have had him withdraw from the race when they saw the polls indicating he would win easily.

    You can’t compare him to Obomber, because Obombers voting record was known, http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1526
    JC has been clearly visible for years as an anti war, pro palestine campaigner.

    Personally I will vote labour now just because of JC’s principled long standing views on Palestinian rights and anti war, he most likely receives a lot of flack and dirty tricks that we don’t get to hear about.

  10. Lynn says:

    Fabian Society at play….Blair was a Fabian too. The Labour Party is full of them.

    • Jennifer says:

      And speaking of Fabian deception. What on earth possessed (?) Corbyn to select Falconer to his team?
      This well is poisoned from the get-go.

      • emm jay says:

        Those were my thoughts too Jennifer re Falconer. Also Corbyn well aware of the Islington child abuse and saying nothing but appointing a deputy in Watson who supposedly ‘speaks out’ on paedophiles. How will that work? Hmmm very strange bedfellows …..

  11. nick says:

    Sadly, voting for political parties is really the only show in town, so it has to be a case of voting for who appears to decent, genuine and principled. If they turn out to be a lying scumbag or manipulated or a a front for someone else, well that wasn’t known at the time, so it can’t be helped.

    What are the alternatives?

    1. Violent revolution leading to….?
    2. Non Participation. leading to those who still participate provide the legitimacy to maintain the status quo, no matter how low the turnout.
    3. Mass Spoiled Papers at the ballot. Even if this was 80%+ , the ‘democratic system’ would still continue unless there is some constitutional clause saying otherwise.

    Face it, we are ruled by a gang of thugs in suits and uniforms, the old iron fist in a velvet glove, and they claim to own all the land and airspace, so unless you can build a floating civilisation in international waters we are stuck wit the devil we know
