Much of Corbyn's talk seemed to be emotional but without substance. Where there was substance, he was wrong. Examples:

* at the start he claimed a radical spirit existed because of the 1994 speech. But that only proves a reactionary (not radical) tradition was alive and well in 1994.

* He has a beef about inequality. To some extent this is a fair point but how far does he want to go? True equality is incompatible with private property of any kind.

* NHS vs USA “have to pay for it” - we pay for it in the UK too.

* Migrants are fleeing conflict and centrally controlled theocracies.

It's very telling that on boreme, for any link that is socialist or anti-capitalist in nature, it is always marked lowly, which is always contrary to the votes on youtube and the public at large.

More than likely it's down to one lowly subscriber peddling a lie.

For shame, it used to be a site of reason, not agenda's.

He talks as if the NHS is free to all, but it's not free as we the taxpaying slaves pay for it! Also he asks why are all the people from Africa dying trying to flee their lands, the reason being to get to the UK where in his words everything is Free! How would you like it if you got home from a hard day at work to find a family of 5 in your house, eating your food, watching your TV & taking baths all at your expense? This guy would just let everyone in regardless!
