    Socialism in Scandinavia has increased the amount of bombings and rapes.

    Socialism vs Capitalism - that's a WRONG dilemma. The right one is Freedom and Law vs Oppression and Bureaucratization of society.

    Corbin should not be in legal politics for his support of terrorists.

    I could never understand how an open supporter of terrorists, Corbin, could be a political leader in a civilized country. Bravo and respect for Boris Johnson from a Russian. I hope Boris will put due pressure on Russia's fascist dictatorship.

    I guess the country couldn't stomach having a man who supported the IRA bomber especially after all the bombings of schools and pubs and maiming of children in Manchester shopping centres.

    Typical slanted bbc hijack. If they had any journalistic integrity, they wouldn't have used a lifelong Tory party official as the 'impartial' questioner and presenter. Utterly Shameful.

    One of the first things I hear in this video is Johnson saying, "Listening to Mr. Corbin." No. No, I did not listen to him say anything. What did he say? I would like to hear him say it. It is clear straight away that this video has been cut and so tampered with.

    Easy Read Labour Manifesto

    (Just a few points copied straight from their manifesto)
    Please read it for the country's sake.

    -Free travel on buses for everyone under 25
    -Free broadband for everyone by 2030 so we can all use the internet
    -Give people free dentist check ups
    -Keep the cost of medicines low and stop people in England paying for prescriptions
    -Make hospital parking free
    -Give adults and children mental health care when they need it
    -Give free education to everyone all through their lives so they can keep learning new skills. This includes free university education

    We will make sure that older people get:

    -Enough extra money every year for their government pension
    -Some money to help pay their gas and electricity bills in winter
    -A free TV Licence and bus pass

    We will give workers much better rights.
    And we will stop low pay and unfair working rules. For example, we will make sure that:

    -All workers over 16 are paid at least £10 an hour

    We will have better rules to make sure that:
    -People don’t pay too much rent
    -People can rent a home for longer

      ​@:: Which you claimed is the party of the immigrants for reasons being it's "anti white" and "anti british" which are not only severe slurs *Jeremy Corbyn is white, a lot of labour MPs are white and british born- but statements you've made underneath a comment because you saw their name and picture and immediately jumped to the conclusion that they must be an immigrant is disgusting. And not only that but claiming an immigrant will support parties for being anti-anything towards the country they now live in is absurd. People don't vote the way you seem to do, with these nasty ideas.
      You need to teach yourself how to speak decently with people.

      @:: implying that anyone who migrated to the country is "anti-british" simply because of their birthplace is a cause for concern. British values can be adopted by anyone. Also, "anti white" is strange to use in conjunction with immigrant too, as immigrants can be white. You're not speaking words of truth, you're speaking words of racism and hate, and I doubt you've restricted this use of language when it comes to anything other than politics too. This is a personal problem that you need to deal with, instead of projecting your insecurities onto others.

    A comment with substance. Don't be fan of a neocon. #stopthetories. #stopboris #stopminitrump. First they will come for the gypsies, the journalists (see the guardian Polly Toynbee last column) then the Muslims (that will be easy because everyone in the world is doing something trouble to their muslim communities) then the poor and vulnerable (the nhs is for sell, in two years of the tories we will see drug prices rise and the neocons will debate a rethink of national insurance) them they will come for others who spoke up for the poor, Muslims, weak, the elderly) and then they will come for ........The future is bright for the 160 billionaires who own the wealth. Did you know 70% of the land in the uk is owned by 170 families. Our Water and electricity is in the hands of the Chinese, the French and the Americans. The companies with British in the name like bae systems is owned by the Americans. Even the corporate media have over the last few years written about the bankruptcy of private building companies who got tax money and extracted British wealth and local councils having to buy back local service industries from private owned companies because the companies went tits up. The gov did a sweet deal with Nissan, Japanese, to protect jobs but they will take the money. The car companies are slowing packing up shop because their shareholders are rethinking where to put money. My comment is info you need to know. Watch lowkey' latest TheXvid vids and see for yourself. We have been brain washed into believing we are free but it's an illusion. Good luck my friend. I vote for the commie over a monster.

    That’s the exact reason why the do it. They don’t like boris or Corbin but they rather have Borris. The man who been sacked twice for lying. He has lied numerous times. The guy put a reporter phone in his pocket cause he didn’t want to see a photo of a 4 year old sleeping on hopsital floor. The media doesn’t like Corbyn he has for 30 years stuck up for British working people. The guy has never changed in his life. He has morals that would never change. He is what Britain needs he want the average person to thrive and enjoy life. Borris is just the puppet of his secret masters.

    If you want to know what a Labour government would do read LABOUR MANIFESTO EASY READ" it is a pdf file from Labour website (link below). It will take about 10 minutes to read and will let you know what Labour's vision is without the lies the billionaire press barons want you to believe. Read it and you can decide what kind of country you want to live in, a country of INVESTMENT and HOPE (LABOUR) or a country of debt and despair (TORIES)

    Labour party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has dismissed suggestions of potential ill health and lack of stamina as he heads towards the UK’s most important general election for generations.

    Speaking to BBC breakfast, he shrugged off the notion that he might under-perform as he’ll be the oldest first-time Prime Minister in 150 years, if he wins Thursday’s general election.

    “I’m very healthy, very fit, very active and I’ve travelled more than any other party leader in this election”, the 70-year old Corbyn told the BBC’s Louise Minchin.

    Despite facing an unexpectedly tough interview by Minchin, Corbyn repeatedly made light-hearted comments, by revealing, for example, that he eats “porridge” every morning.

    On the broader question of the quality of his leadership, Corbyn dismissed repeated attacks on his “credentials” as a leader by staying on-message and insisting that he is “proud” of the Labour party’s manifesto and he sees his job as to “deliver it [the manifesto]”.

    OVER 5000 people have died since 2016 because of NHS bed shortages. PREVENTABLE DEATHS!
    Boris Johnson does not use our NHS, billionaire tory donors do not use our NHS. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT OUR NHS. If you want to DEFEND our NHS from the tory cuts. DO NOT VOTE FOR THE TORIES. Vote for a party that WILL PROTECT AND FUND the NHS, allowing it to provide world class care and treatment to its patients. DO NOT RISK YOU OR YOUR FAMILIES LIFE WITH AN UNDERFUNDED TORY NHS.***** VOTE LABOUR****

    One thing thats always bugged me about political debates and gatherings such as this, or the scutiny in the house of commons right.... is how nobody seems to provide any evidence, or citations for an accusation or point made. (Or very little evidence) Which allows the one being questioned to respond with juvenile bs like "wELL yOuRe wRonG mAtE" ..... we wanna get brexit done..... like plz provide citations and solid proof, because the audience in this video, are clearly inept😅 and have no idea who to believe.... its like theyre all prohibited from showing evidence to THE PEOPLE.
    Anyways boris nonsense is very one dimensional and foolish
