Jeremy Corbyn has defied his critics to become Labour’s best hope of survival
That's honestly quite extraordinary. I figured Wales was just about the only place where conservative and UKIP sentiment was remaining strong. So glad to be proved wrong.
I don't want to get too carried away but damn, I'm starting to think Corbyn can actually win this! Especially after today's shambles with May's U-turn.
I have a friend who's lived there for years and is coming back soon, would be funny if he actually wins as she's leaving.
This really is an election campaign like no other. The grassroots is doing all the party needs to to get the message out there. Sometimes it just takes a gaffe like this to shift opinion.
On another note, really interesting to see Osborne's Evening Standard is running such an anti-tory hitpiece in today's paper on all the U-turns the tories have gone through under May. Quite something.
It will be the biggest political upset this country has seen in decades if Corbyn wins, it really would be a sight to behold.
I guess Osborne is just getting revenge for May sacking him haha. I have to say it's pretty entertaining watching Tories rip each other apart.
If he can win the Labour party on odds of 200:1, odds of 9:1 as they were when the election was called shouldn't be too difficult! The level of joy I'd feel if we did get a win would be ridiculous.
That was my logic too. The pettiness behind it being clear as it is now is fantastic for us. I'd be happy if we even got a hung parliament at this point.
hilarious if Corbyn wins a snap election called for the all but stated purpose of destroying Corbyn and consolidating tory power
Wake up and smell that English breakfast tea folks heh
I'd love to see a Tory cabinet minister unseated- that'd be a huge blow to them.
It would be fantastic if Labour won. It'd be the first time I've actually liked a Prime Minister during my lifetime, which would be weird.
Yeah I'd take a hung parliament over a Tory landslide anyday. I'm just really surprised at how well Corbyn is doing in the polls compared to where Labour was a month ago, my faith in people is slowly being restored. Although I don't want to speak too soon lol
If other labour officially running are supposedly better than corbyn wouldn't that be a good sign for their chances?
English breakfast is ass btw, Earl grey and many others are much better
I think anyone that isn't surprised would be lying. It shows where his strengths lie and how effectively we can lean on them to our advantage.
My 2nd thought was earl grey, I grew out of both though. I'm more of a gt guy now.
This is like 2-3 constituencies worth of new voters in one day. That's huge.
Green tea and fruit tea is money tea
I dislike fruit tea but I will agree on the former, obviously
I like fruit tea but some fruit tea is poorly made. I got an orange tea once that tasted like orange gatorade, the worst thing i've ever tasted
I like English breakfast and Earl grey so nyeh
Peppermint tea is my favorite
