    Comrade Corbyn can argue a post out of the ground I'll give him that. But when asked the questions, to put figures to his outlandish spending spree plans, he couldn't answer because he didn't have a clue.

    That is worrying that people are prepared to vote for a guy who has no knowledge at all, of what its going to cost in his spending and yet wants to raise taxes and cap wages. That doesn't make any sense! If you earn more, you pay more, why cap wages? Its a total contradiction in terms.

Y'know...There's a part of me that really hopes Corbyn wins the next election (As long as it comes after Brexit is done and dusted). Not because I want to see him in power, but because I desperately want to see the look on his face when he realises he has to make good on all his promises.

He's promised the young will be better off, the old will be better off, investment in every region of Britain, scrapping tuition fees, close the gender pay gap, cut borrowing, invest in schools and free adult education, keep winter fuel payments and free bus passes for every pensioner whether they need them or not, scrap the 'bedroom tax', increase dole, sick benefits and carers' allowances, scrap the NHS pay cap, build more homes, put more police back on the streets, recruit 3,000 more firefighters and 3,000 more prison officers, stick £20 billion into a 'Scottish Investment Bank' and £10 billion into the Development Bank of Wales, nationalse the railways, and a million other things.

And he's going to fund ALL of that by taxing the top 5% of earners, the largest companies, and going after tax dodgers!!!

Yeah, right. Sure he is.

But you see, it's easy to promise the world when you think you have very little chance of getting into power, as Corbyn did only a few weeks ago. It doesn't matter because you never have to deliver on your promises. It's exactly the same mistake Cameron made: He didn't WANT a referendum on Europe, but he promised one, never thinking he'd have to deliver one. And we all know what THAT did to his political career!

If I didn't think Corbyn is such a dangerous man to put in power, I'd probably vote for him next time around just to see the bugger squirm.

And to anyone thinking of voting for him in the next election, I'd just quote Cyrus from 'The Warriors':

"Can you count, suckers"?

Because there's definitely something wrong with Corbyn's maths.
