    These are universal values that only the Tories have forgotten - if they ever believed in them in the first place.

    In the hearts of millions they are very much the values of today as you are your ilk are set to discover in due course.

    Anyway, back to the subject in hand. When America catches a cold the UK sneezes. These debates are embarrassing, albeit quite entertaining. The fear is that people go on to vote for the leader with the best debating skills, not the party with the best politics.
    Methinks you have that arse uppards,in any event neither has anything of substance to offer except more hot air lies and betrayals.
    Sold down the river,well actually in this case the channel and substitute plantation owners for eu.
    Also unless I post as moderator please understand all other posts are as an ordinary member.

    Compassion for who, those who don't want to work and achieve better things?
    Fairness, fairness meaning those who work hard and end up with the same quality of living as those who don't?
    Equality, meaning we all have the same. Equality = communism
    Social justice, meaning all of the above.
    The end of poverty. Please tell me how that would work. STOP PRESS, I have it. Lets tax the hell out of people who manage to be successful, in order we can give their hard worked wealth to those who can't be bothered to get up off of their arse.

    Face it, the only system that works is capitalism, and as long as I have a hole in my bottom, that won't change. Now, capitalism with a degree of controlled greed and compassion is another thing. The Corbyn way has been tried before, and really, it didn't work.
    Keep Britain British, whoops, it's too late

    How is the Labour Party going to end poverty?. They are signed up to defining poverty as 60% of the median income so by definition you cannot erase that unless everyone is paid the same.

    Methinks you haven't thought this through very hard.
