    That's what the welfare state has done, encouraged the stupid and feckless to breed
    I actually agree with you for a change.

    Bit harsh, Suity isn't here to defend himself.
    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...

    The thing I always find with Corbyn, is he only ever appeals to the people he knows that will already vote for him, or maybe that is his trick, keeping his core in tact while the rest destroy themselves with in fighting.
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    He learned that from Trump.
    The far(ish, Trump in this case) right and far(ish, in this case, Corbyn) left have always used the same tactics.
    The result historically has always been the same, oppression and tyranny, the minority dominating the majority.
    Abandoning the centre is a prescription for chaos - unfortunately this seems to be the path the UK and US have embarked on.
    Hard Brexit now!

    Many comments on this thread about why the economy will decline, but the main reason is that there are too many complete imbeciles in the British population.
    That's what the welfare state has done, encouraged the stupid and feckless to breed.
    Are there any stats to suggest this has had an effect on family sizes in different socio-economic groups? I would expect that the provision of free birth control through the welfare state is more likely to have had the opposite effect overall.

    More likely that declining educational standards have left a large proportion of the population without the cognitive skills to see through the super-wealthy class's 20+ year Eurosceptic newspaper campaign. As a result, these poorly educated types have voted against their own interests.

    The centre is something of a moving feast. Standing for restoration of some trade union rights, nationalisation of railway and social housing building puts him somewhat on a par with Macmillan on domestic policy.

    According to this report it makes no difference - see page 6:
