Stop the clocks, silence the bells, ... I agree Mute.
His form of opposition has, in my view, facilitated the mess we are in at the moment re Brexit/Johnson government. I still say he is a conviction politician shorn of pr sheen and spin.

Moving away from the PR sheen and having vested interests point, Castle Grim Reaper, what is your opinion of where Corbyn is on the liar stakes 1-10 compared to say Johnson?

Well I guess it is a ten as they are clearly both liars.

I was merely commenting on your statement that 'he was a relatively honest politician when compared to all these liars', nothing more. :(

They're both politicians (so will lie) but only one (regularly) consorted with terrorists. :roll: :roll:

And I asked you to score them 1-10 (relatively).

Relying, do you think Johnson and Corbyn lie relatively the same amount as your post suggests?

Let's deal with the IRA points you keep flagging. Fisrtly, all forms of terrorism are abhorent, no debate.

When the approach in Northern Ireland was piling in gung-ho there was civil war in the UK, thousands dying and Bloody Sunday. When both sides sat down and talked to each other we ended up with the Good Friday Agreement and subsequent peace. Talking is good. Fighting is bad.

Liar, noun, a person who tells lies.

Not entirely sure how you mark them out of ten relatively unless you are completely delusional and want to break it down into white lies, little fibs, great big porkies etc. :oops:
