    People have been throwing stones at him in Oldham today apparently. Hopefully it's not long before someone hits him with a grenade.

    Owen Jones makes my head spin. Itís Ďastonishingly counterproductiveí to accurately describe Corbynís Brexit policy.

    Maybe Owen should read the leaflets Labour are putting through letterboxes because I got one this week that promised to deliver Brexit

    Heís not denying Corbyn wants Brexit. Heís saying itís unhelpful to label Labour as an anti-Remain party (which they are) because then when the results of the election come in, it will look like the combination of anti-Remain votes across Labour, Brexit Party and UKIP will suggest the majority want Brexit. Because the problem is people saying Corbyn is a Leaver, not Corbyn being a leaver.

    Itís mind-blowing mental gymnastics of the type only Corbynistas (and perhaps Liverpool fans) are capable of.

    Christ. Someone actually asks him why he's denying reality and his response to throw it back and says it's your fault if you don't vote Labour and The Brexit Party clean up. Seriously, wtf?! Like you say the mental gymnastics to actually deny reality is astonishing. This just further reinforces my belief that Jones is a first year politics 6th form student. Its actually embarrassing.

    It's certainly a bold approach to admit in the open that your own policies are bad for the party and that voters should stop talking about them

    What heís saying is true though - a vote for labour is a not a vote for Brexit, itís a vote for social justice and equality, for combatting climate breakdown, for ending austerity, and for bringing the country back together.

    Theyíre not trying to boil down all of politics to one single issue with an extreme divisive position on either side. And for the people who donít care about all the issues in UK society that led to the Brexit vote and simply care about having another referendum, to just say that anyone who cares about the above issues more than a simplistic single issue party must be on the opposing side is counterproductive in their attempt to turn the elections into a second referendum.

    It is literally a vote for a pro-Brexit party.

    As with the post about Zionist propaganda the other week, itís just the verbatim Corbynite line with no appreciation of context or actual understanding. Possibly is literally a bot.

    Personally I think the issues this country have are far bigger than brexit. As a result i don't really care if leave or remain at this point and now focus on the parties that will help adresse all the other issues.

    I would vote Labour with that in mind except they have been terrible opposition and have let the tories do so much damage. Ok I know the opposition have limited real power but their job is to hold the government to account. They should be distroying the tories in every poll.

    It is because of this I will be voting Lib Dem from this point on. I used to vote Conservative, then in 2017 switched to Labour but no more both parties are a disorganised mess. And I don't think I am the only one, some die hard tories I know will simply stop voting all together. Disillusioned with the two main parties (the system?) is probably the best word to summarise large swaths of the public.

    The Labour leader has given speeches and interviews about the threat to British workers posed by the flow of migrant enabled by EU freedom of movement so maybe someone not keen on outsiders has a home in the red zone

    Itís a European election.
    And elected MEPs would have more of a say on the above issues than on whether or not we get an insane hard Brexit, a sensible soft Brexit, or yet more purgatory of another year of referendums and division that will likely produce the same result.
