    Spineless bloke, who should never have gone into politics, unless as a Tory, or Lib Dem.

    He'd make a better leader than Jezza. Why, what has he done?

    He's a scumbucket. Tony is probably turning in his grave.

    Have you been to Aleppo recently?

    They've been asking why he's not in the New Year's Honours list...

    I think you know that that is a ridiculously simplistic statement.

    I suspect he may be next leader of the party.

    No chance, a right wing war monger in Blair mould, unless there is a huge demographic change in the make up of the members he will be lucky to survive re-selection by his CLP, never mind becoming leader. If the demographic stays the same then for me it will be from Clive Lewis, Emily Thornberry or Richard Burgon as an outside bet.

    No, I'm a Corbyn fan, I just felt he'd be next. Mind, I was sure that the Dan Jarvis would have taken over from Ed Milliband at one stage too (this was ages before he actually stepped down).

    Richard Burgon as mentioned previously seems like a really decent bloke, but perhaps not ready for the big job.

    He'd never get my vote.

    I don't know much about her but politically, if you're behind her, I'm sure she's spot on. Do you think she's a little young though?

    "If they're good enough, they're old enough", although we could follow that with "You don't win anything with kids".

    Er, not really equipped for it is she?

    And the ability to let others speak from time to time might not go amiss either.

    Corbyn is hardly Mr Charisma is he. His stance on defence also scares the population shitless. 25% agree with him about nuclear disarmament and only 14% about NATO. He has no chance of getting Labour elected with those views.

    Hilary Benn is a discgrace to his family name.

    The work "back stabber" was invented for him.

    Hate Corbyn, or love him, he is the real deal. Hilary Benn is a fraud.

    Any idea that speech he made is anything other than grandstanding is utter rubbish.

    It isn't simplistic to say bombing Aleppo was wrong. It WAS wrong.
    What good has it done, other than selling more weapons?
