  1. I agree with Andy. There are worrying signs that Corbyn might just get in. It doesn’t help that the leftist BBC is promoting his campaign so vigorously, and I think our Prime Minister has made a hash of the campaign so far, with door-step politics and a poor manifesto, when she should have been on TV debating. Corbyn’s manifesto is a great work of fiction. There is no way he can pay for it, however, it’s contents are what the people want to hear. Whether he delivers or not is irrelevant, once he is in power, it’s too late.
