Response to Ken Burch (Reply #25)

27. Well, "Jeremy" must be a grave disappointment to you.

He's now in favour of continuing the UK's involvement with the EU through access to the single market. That's what we call a "soft Brexit".

That means that the UK will have to comply with EU laws and regulations. But the UK will no longer be able to vote to shape them. That's kinda stupid. So if all you've been rabidly ranting on about at great length (just pointing out how it comes across) is true, your only consistent position would be a "hard" Brexit.

That's a position that definitely has minority support.

As for "Jeremy", people usually reserve first-name only status for pop idols or people they actually know. I don't know who this "everybody" you're referring to might be, but it's not common among the UK public when referring to Corbyn, so yes, it does sound rather odd and fanboyish.

Now this whole discussion is just going round and round in circles, and you're arrogantly refusing to take into account (or even respond to at the moment) what a number of people on this thread are telling you about the politics of their own country. That's not a good look, you know.

You complain about being shown "no evidence" when your pigheadedness doesn't exactly encourage anyone to waste the time offering you any, because you'll either ignore it (like the polling info I took the trouble to fish out for you) or dismiss it and keep banging on over and over with the same points even after they've been countered.

I don't think you're persuading anyone, and you're obviously beyond persuasion. It's a waste of time and energy that would be better directed elsewhere.

There's a chance we might have been able to spend this thread discussing other issues raised in the OP, and there are important ones that are worth considering at this key moment, but just look at where you've taken it. Swamping the discussion like this on the only DU group dedicated to UK matters is out of order, IMHO.
