    Possibly, but for now I think, as a country, were actually getting an opposition that is finally worthy of the name. I honestly wonder would we have had as much open and frank debate debate about tax credits and now the syria crisis under under the former Labour leadership?

    The Syria bombing was voted out before Corbyn and it was far beyond Corbyn that the tax credits got voted out

    Yeah but the story would be run in the mail 'civil servants travel 1st class whilst someone commits suicide solely because of cuts'

    Because they don't deal with the actual facts

    Agree, pretty much..but think on those two major and pressing issues, he has been on his own ground...and public opposition and or cynicism was pretty nailed on.

    Thornier developments will prove the real test.

    I honestly believe both would have been nodded through on former leadershios. the Tax credit one already had been by the party being whipped to abstain to allow free passage for the welfare reform bill.

    I dont know what can be much more thorny than risking the lives our people to fight a war in syria.

    These didn't go through because of Corbyn though. He hasn't had to fight too hard on these.

    The first bit didn't make sense Theo.

    All media play the game, but the vast majority can see that. You don't give credit to people to be able to think for themselves or use various means to form an opinion.
