FFS this shiite is what wrong with this country

an alarming number of " press outlets " - have concluded " - that the jacket mr corbyn wore at the rememberance day cenotaph ceremony - was to quote " scruffy " and " dissrespectful "

i refuse to give the wank - puffins clicks - so no sources cite - but if you insist - just google " corbyn jacket "

thats todays fake news

who gives a fook ?????????????? - the dead certainly dont

i dont agree with all corvyns policies or ideas - buut the fact that he scares " certain people " so much - is always a vent of amusement

but back on track - the same " news outlets " - are suspiciously silent on a whole slew of REAL issues that affect this country

one has to wonder why - but hey - lets focus on " scruffy jackets "

Exactly the same was said about Michael Foot's "donkey jacket" back in Maggie's time. Rather a famous incident.
For a moment there, I thought you were just reviving that memory (then the difference in names clicked).

At least Corbyn managed to wear a poppy, albeit so small you had to look carefully to see it. The "outrage" is more about the fact that this person is making a play to be Prime Minister and will need to lead ceremonies like this, where he seems to be hinting at contempt.

Looks OK to me. It is a jacket! What ... wrong style or something.

Wars, famines, oh, and that jacket's awful.

Get a meaningful life!

He looks just like a scruffy older man. His jacket looked casual but not exactly worthy of all this attention. Is this a British formal thing?

I didn't think there was a problem. Not exactly sunbathing weather, was it?

Maybe the press would have been happier if Corbyn had been wearing a Dinner Suit.

On a serious note. Looking at the ex-service men in the parade ( many who fought in WW II ) some where wearing similar style coats.

If it is good enough for them, and i hold them in great respect, then to knock Corbyn is just sheer pettiness.

Gutter press at it's finest.

We're in an age where people like to complain about absolutely everything, it's why no ones opinion matters anymore.

The irony of it! That people are suggesting that Mr Corbyn's jacket choice was "disrespectful" is one of the most ludicrous attempts and deflection imaginable.

A man standing at a ceremony, remembering the lessons history taught the world about right and wrong, about priorities, about the nature of hate and how to combat it, and about loss, the horrific cost of war, is surrounded entirely, on nearly every side with people who were instrumental in the sale of weapons to regimes around the world, whose barbarity has been shown to be without effective limit, whose moral authority is non-existent because of the choices they have made when faced with the opportunity to limit the spread of war and suffering, and chose instead to spread them further in order to keep investors happy, and who is accused of disrespect?

The only person amongst those notables who has campaigned against the every excess and every dodgy deal done by those around him, to spread war ever further! Of course! Going after the man who has learned the lessons which come as a part of the instruction, the mantra "Lest we forget", for his "disrespectful" attire,
whilst ignoring the implications of the presence of those who literally profit from and nurture war wherever they can, who are all around him, makes PERFECT sense...

...If the intention is to deflect, to make it harder for the easily programmed out there, to ignore the outright criminality of his political opponents, to ignore that a significant percentage of the people who are drivers of global conflict, were also there, are running the government, running the economy (into the ground), making decisions that effect the lives of our citizens, and the citizens of the globe, and profit from the conflicts they have generated for their own, greedy purposes.

I would be, were I a man of means and less diligently against gambling, willing to bet that the papers most involved in these attacks on Mr Corbyn, are also profiting from those same conflicts, and the savage behaviour of those currently in our government.

In summary, the only man in politics actually attempting to correct the flawed ideals which contribute to Britain's level of responsibility in global conflict in the modern era, just got called out for disrespecting the very people whose memory he has been trying to honour throughout his career as a politician. These people are deluded, utterly deluded. There is no logic or reality involved in this smear. Its a transparent, petty deflection, that will work on just enough people to be effective, but not enough people to go unnoticed, or unmentioned, uncriticised.

I looked it up, they said 'Irish navvys' dress better.

What is a 'navvy' and what is an 'Irish'?

In today's climate looks are everything. Therefore a piece on Corbyn's jacket is miles better for the populace and MSM £turnover than real news.

That's because as a society we are degenerates concerned with looks and shiny stuff.

Education and parenting is to blame.

Goes to show how desperate the elites and billionaires are to never let Corbyn get elected. They'll lose fortunes as he taxes the rich properly.

A "navvy" is a road-building/road-mending worker (originally short for "navigator").
In former generations, these workers frequently came across from Ireland, making "Irish navvy" a common expression.
Hence the old joke;
Q; How do you confuse an Irish navvy?
A; Show him a pile of shovels, and invite him to take his pick.

Ummm...that is most certainly true...

The blame does lie with education and parenting...Education because of it’s idealistic directive progressivism...parenting because they too were subject to the same...

We are certainly degenerating as a species as well...again...by education...
Taught that every answer we ever needed is to be found with a few clicks...
Then we have certain leanings of opinion being scrubbed from in front of our eyes...

I suppose being led by the nose does negate energy expenditure...thus eliciting a net savings on some data set’s...in various bottom lines...
Which also doesn’t point in any direction other than...herd like...

I often get hounded for the following view...

I am by nature against any regulation that is not related directly to mechanical or personal health and safety, not including moderately dangerous personal choices. For example, regulation on workplace safety is good. Regulation surrounding fat content in food is bad. Regulation banning dogs from playgrounds is good. Regulation banning smoking is bad. And so on... But I am completely in favour of regulating parenting. Maybe even regulating who can have a child.

That is incredibly conservative in approach but I believe it would end many of our society/herd based issues.

I don't think that's the point. The commentary from the none-tabloids seems to focus on the solemnity of the event, especially the 100th anniversary, and the consequential expectation that the second most senior politician in the land should have made more of an effort.

Sometimes there is nothing gained by making a point by dressing down and wearing a poppy the size of a fingernail. It may have pleased his mates in the North Islington Labour Club, Socialist Worker, or the Ploughs not Bombs Society wherever they are based, but it sends an antagonistic message to others.

Either he dressed-down on purpose, or he made an error of judgement, or he does not care that he offends. Bearing in mind that in 2015 Corbyn questioned why we still commemorate WW1.

The ex service men are much older and retired therefor if not in uniform

probably not able to afford formal attire.


Corbyn always looks scruffy and untidy and he hopes to be PM of his country

not a good representation for ANY country ...... Even drunker Junker makes a

better representation than him.


As a representative of his country he is a disaster, Kier Starmer and Tom Watson

would be better.

Should i tell you what really matters.

After the ceremony, the " best dressed " politicians pissed off to have their freebie lunches.

Corbyn stayed behind to talk with ex-servicemen on the parade.

I'm no fan of Corbyn but that does show integrity.
