In response to Karen Harradine: How Andrew Neil proved that Corbyn is unfit to be PM,
Corbyn is the sort of guy to steer clear of at the allotment and avoid along the supermarket aisles. He displays the worrisome countenance of someone about to manically scream to the heavens against all life’s injustices, which he has had to endure. I’ve seen the look on a few passengers’ faces whenever I have to board one of London’s buses during the day. Or in a doctor’s waiting room. That sort of look. It’s not known for inspiring confidence.
His ideas are as stale as his appearance. The mere presence of this weak impersonation of a human being within the Labour Party is reflective of a political cabal that has no direction but backwards and no workable plan to achieve the power they crave.
His leadership is non-existent. He isn’t a compelling public speaker. He surrounds himself with sycophants or is surrounded by false admirers who can step into the limelight, once he departs the scene.
As I say, I would be reluctant to lend this man the keys to my shed, let alone handing over the keys to No 10.

I fully expect that Corbyn and McDonnell will nationalise the target businesses without compensation. I also expect that McDonnell will introduce exchange controls immediately, that is to say within minutes of gaining the power to do so.
It’s not difficult to see the attraction of a million-plus Muslim votes over maybe 150,000 Jewish votes.
The problem is that those who adore him were not around in the 1970s when the last Marxist lot practically destroyed the UK. The ‘Free Everything’ mantra works as the education system is so dumbed down in the UK that they don’t understand nothing is ‘free’ – somebody has to pay for it.
As someone who lives in provincial Russia, I know the Russians don’t want ‘free stuff’ from the Government, just less tax (already low at 13 per cent for everybody) and less bureaucracy (getting better).
They remember when everything was ‘free’ but in short supply, including housing!
In 1990 as the Soviet Union collapsed every family was given the apartment they lived in! That was the only ‘gift’ the communist regime ever gave them. However it means that in Russia home ownership is 90 per cent and there is no social or council housing.
Unlike the vast sink estates of the UK where poverty and joblessness proliferate, in Russia these former Soviet utilitarian blocks owned by the residents are kept in good order.
Nobody in Russia, and that includes the Russian Communist Party (which is to the right of the UK Tories), wants a return to the past.
