    he appeared somewhat less decent and compassionate when supporting the terrorism from the IRA, of course in pursuit of their and his goal of a unified Ireland - contrary to the wishes of the Northern Irish public. he even went as far as to oppose the Anglo-Irish Agreement.

    He has courted some dodgy friends in the past. Did he actually sell the IRA weapons, if not then his support for terrorists didn't go quite as far as Thatcher. Maybe that's why the Tories say he is not fit to be the PM?.

    I'm more aware of that, but I'm not voting for a Corbyn party, I'm voting for a Labour party. I'm more interested about how he would run the country as a PM than what he campaigned about in the past. What I know for sure is under a tory party we are heading for another recession. That's why I'll vote the next majority.

    I know for sure is under a tory party we are heading for another recession.
    when David Cameron became PM in 2010 we were in a massive financial mess caused by the
    likes of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown and the Conservatives are still trying to get us back on
    track so the last thing we need is another Labour government coming in and over spending like they always do.

    I know times are tough at the moment with wages staying same but bills still going up but I'm
    convinced that this short term pain will eventually lead to a long term gain and we will all become better off.

    The last thing we need is Jeremy Corbyn coming and going to war on big business and the rich as
    all that will do is lead to company's cutting back on JOBS to pay more taxes and ordinary folk will end up unemployed

    Seriously?!?!. I cant believe that people are still swallowing all that Daily Mail crap even now!. The recession was not caused by Gordon Brown or Tony Blair!. The Recession was caused by a global market meltdown. There were recessions in the U.S, Spain, Portugal, Iceland, Greece, Ireland - practically all of Europe suffered economically - was that all Gordon Browns fault?!. When you sign up your economy to the 'magic of the market' as all of our main parties do then recessions are inevitable.

    The Tories came into power saying that they were going to cut the defecit and pay back the debt - they have more than TREBLED the debt!!. Even after the most vunerable people in society had to suffer brutal cuts, such as DLA being slashed. The Tories have failed catastrophically to provide the kind of financial security that they promised. Osbornomics is a sham as millions suffer yet corporations get away with paying a pittance in tax. Let us not forget that the economy was growing in the first 2 quarters in 2010 until the Tories came in with their slash and burn policy sending us into a double dip recession when other countries were recovering.

    Conservatives getting us back on track?!?! - It beggers belief that in this supposedly democratic society our mainstream media is allowed to report news like a Tory election pamphlet.

    Anybody who wants to put their trust in them once more needs their head examining...

    aren't they the same thing? the current Labour party couldn't be more entrenched with its Leader with all senior shadow cabinet positions taken up by his London metropolitan elites.

    doesn't his past behaviour give you some indication of how he would operate as PM? we have a man that actively opposed the Anglo-Irish Agreement and positioned himself unashamedly on the side of people that were blowing up British children in pursuit of their goals.

    in the current climate I consider that a considerable concern.

    you said he was "decent and compassionate" but i've yet to see evidence of that.

    What? did Corbyn have access to a stockpile of weapons then?

    courted some dodgy friends? mate, he was supporting people who were bombing our children. I don't know how much more treacherous you can get. 'dodgy' implies slight misdemeanours - we're talking murderers, bombers and child killers here ffs.

    Thatcher has nothing to do with anything here, lets focus on Uncle Jeremy and avoid the whataboutery.

    I'll have to read up more on that when I get time.

    so do you honestly think that Corbyn and his gang
    of hard left extremists would do a better job?
    Did you hear about that radio interview from Diane Abbot
    who got all her numbers wrong about hiring more police?

    We need a strong Tory Government to help exit the EU as
    soon as possible and the only leader capable of that is Theresa May.

    Those gangsters over in Brussels are demanding that we hand
    over 100 Billion when we leave in Jan 2019 but i say Up Yours to the EU.
