Whenever you guys talk about Corbyn I wonder once more about the lizard people and why they are so damn flippant picking names for their puppets.

Okay, bets are void if he doesn't stand for any reason, as with all none-runners.

I want to clean up by betting now on what nobody thinks will happen, so I think odds proportionate to the current average polling of people who do not think he can win would be fair enough.
Say 7-3 on him winning the next election: say we each bet £3, then you give me £10 if he wins, I give you £4.29 if he loses.

eta: actually those odds are very generous, but I don't want to break anyone's ass.

Those are generous odds indeed - but I won't be entering into any cash transactions here. I will though credit you with an astonishingly prescient win if your predictions do in the event map onto future reality space.

There isn't going to be any referendum. If there were then obviously the power hungry unelected and unaccountable faceless bureaucrats would be voted out - and we can't have that now can we?

That's bloody depressing, that the Tories paid somebody to come up with such a horrible election campaign and that so many people were convinced by it.

Maybe you're right, but I was reading today that a leaked government memo is suggesting charging people for tribunals if they want to appeal a welfare sanction. 58% of sanctions are overturned on appeal, the system is broken but the government rather then making the system better wants to make it more difficult for wronged people to get justice. Corbyn looks like the guy who would make things different.

I think the tories by pretending to encourage and be happy with corbyn at the helm of labour have massively failed to grasp the mood of the nation

Cameron has recently realised the threat... the rest will catch up in time

The skill of arseholes like Crosby is in divide and conquer politics. Their aim is to win enough votes in enough seats to win government and if they have to screw every minority in sight, and indeed democracy itself, the end justified the means. Your most recent election was an object lesson in the technique. And they love principled politicians like Corbyn because they're easy to wedge.

Because their misinformation forms voters' opinions.

Here is a whole bunch of examples of how this works:
