I take it he's not a fan of Jeremy?

I doubt that Jeremy is much of a fan of Peter Hain. Unlike Jeremy Peter Hain was an effective campaigner. As a teenager he played a major role in disrupting and eventually stopping cricket and RU tours to the UK by South African teams and later in the seventies started the Anti Nazi League.

I don't underestimate nor try to dismiss the idea that antisemitism is s problem, but the whole thing from start to finish has tried to target rather than answer or even ask the questions that need to be there. Some are content to fan the flames, others just enjoying the bonfire, but the rest are bringing kindling.

It was hard to argue a case that you were wholly against any form of antisemitism, and stand united behind all this when the prejudice was a side issue to burning Jeremy.

Making antisemitism into this, putting it there well ..... I'll leave that for you to decide.

Is "Rachael" still begging for money to fund her dwp appeal which has been going on for years now? The number of cretins taken in by "her" is quite outstanding, unfortunately we also allow them to vote.

I've seen that Rachel sponging for money on Twitter. 

Well, she's got to get her money from somewhere as she's "never done a days work".

If taken at face value, her and possibly her husband as is often suggested, have built up a substantial Twitter following, they run a slick barrage of tweets each and every day which is well planned according to one interview I read.

So the thing I've never understood is, why people are not beating a path to her door, either political parties/figures looking to improve there social media impact or companies, they can't all be put off by her politics.  There can't be many managed to get such a substantial following on Twitter from the comfort of there own kitchen without already being a celebrity.

Something about this account and being unemployed just doesn't ring true with me.

I’m neither bothered nor interested in her dwp appeal or whether she’s ever worked or not.

You need to find out what “ad hominem” means

Fancy getting your knickers in a twist over the jacket someone wears in the middle of November, rather than the fact there are ex-military personnel sleeping rough. It just about sums up the right these days.

Yes turning up at the Cenotaph to remember heroes whilst ignoring those who served and ended up living in the street.

Time for a "people living on the street have always been around and always will be" post I think.

I just think he's a scruffy old man, he'd probably turn up to a close family funeral wearing exactly the same and think it was perfectly acceptable.  It's what's in his intent that's important rather than the clothes he wears and he's shown nothing but respect for the day in the best way he can.

That said, I know judging folk on their dress sense is daft but it's just another thing that makes people think he's not got it to be the leader of the country.

It's also just as unfair to point out rough sleepers on a day like today.  That's not what today was about.  Ex-military rough sleepers have been ignored for generations and the politicians refuse to fix it.  Also, the day Corbyn shows the first hint of genuine empathy for them that's better than the Tories in charge then I'll think better of him, until then, he's just another politician who looks down his nose at the military, joining probably 95%-98% of the other MPs in the Commons.

I genuinely don’t believe a word of that.

Its getting to the point where people (both sides) will have to start acting rather than talk and deferment.

It's about respect.  He's not poor.  He could have easily worn a suit with a smart coat.  He could have shown some respect for the occasion.  Nobody was asking a homeless person to wear a suit and smart coat.

And that's about turning up and showing respect and remembering not about the clothes you wear. And in all the posts you have put in this is the pits of pathetic. You have seen an opportunity to score using the pretense of respect.

Based on that post alone you are not in a position to comment upon respect as you clearly have no understanding of what the word means.

Coming from the person who used veterans and the dead to score a point I consider that a compliment.

Sadly it seems that for some 'remembrance' is becoming little more than a point scoring/photo opportunity.

Those people should be ashamed of themselves but the reality is that next year they will be trying to 'out do' this year.

It's embarrassing and a stain on the memory of those who died.

No. So why didn't Corbyn wear a suit and tie then?  Or is a suit and tie the height of fashion in your household?
