    Is Corbyn one of those politicians that are way better at and more interested in entrenching their position within their party than being concerned with government and what voters expect?

    He was trying to shift the party back to its socialist roots and thought there was a majority in the country that wanted that too. It got mired in Brexit, media bias towards the Conservatives and pretty poor leadership skills. My view is that he is a thoroughly decent man completely unsuited to leadership and who ran out of ideas after his first year at the helm. Party Politics in this country is poisoning everything. We need a revolution but we won't get one until people are on their knees. They think they are now but they have no idea how bad it could get.

    Mezla is spot on. The fact he's held his seat for god knows how many years should tell you on a local level he's a politician with respect. I honestly think he is a decent bloke - but the way politics is in this country you need more than decency which is a rare commodity and not the thing a lot will pay attention to. (how sad is that?)

    There's a trainee solicitor in my team at work who converted to law having studied politics, with a masters in political communication. She was saying at our Christmas meal the other night that if people actually understood the amount of sway and control the media have on the political opinion of this country there'd be a riot.

    I've had people who voted Torie message me gloating, saying that 'my lot' took a hell of a beating, etc.

    Oh yuck. That's as ridiculous as what I was describing.

    I'm not suggesting people can't feel exactly what they want about the result.... but just don't be dicks about it.

    Going on a date on Sunday :) was not expecting this!

    (No, he's not a blacksmith, Tiste!)

    I demand details, playa!

    Like: is he good enough for you?
    Of course not, but maybe with some "adjustments" he could become "tolerable" ... ;)

    As he's not a blacksmith I'm sure Tiste will say no he isn't! ;)

    He's the oldest friend of one of my D&D group, who was at pains to say he wouldn't have put us in touch if he didn't think it was worthwhile (and I believe him - he knows my history and it's his oldest friend). Been nattering this week and we've plenty in common and he seems lovely. Given said D&D chap likes about ten people in the whole world, it was a pretty good yardstick to begin with anyway. We shall see!

    Your videos on YouTube are awesome. It's always different hearing the voices in another person's tone and accent. Really enjoyed them, thanks so much!
