My answer to What are Jeremy Corbyn’s chances of winning according to people who are politically astute?
Answer by Desmond Last:
I believe Corbyn has a good chance of winning.
I am not a member of the Labour Party nor in fact of any Party. I am an experienced amateur Political Observer. I am an Englishman born in London who emigrated to Australia and have returned to look after my mum who is 88.
Standing back from it all I will say this.
If I thought that Theresa May was good for the People of the United Kingdom and their future I would vote for May. I have no Political axe to grind. I believe President Trump is good for the United States of America and if he is able to sort the truth out of all the conflicting advise he gets he will be good for the World.
I do however believe that he needs to change his opinion about Climate Change and reaffirm his commitment to Law and Order. I hope one day to meet with President Trump in order to elaborate on my new ideas for Climate Change. OK it may never happen but with President Trump I believe that he would want to hear my new ideas. After all he did listen to Steve Bannon!
When I listen to Corbyn I hear a heart and a Passion. I hear caring and I listen to Principle. I watch a man who will do everything he is able to do not for his Party but for the People of the United Kingdom. I view him as a Prime Minster who will not substitute Principle for Pounds. With Corbyn you will receive a renewal of the Spirit of a Nation who looks after those who are least able to look after themselves. He will also want corporate U.K to pay its dues. Corbyn will return Pride and Principle to our Nation.
You do not listen to Theresa May you are instead lectured. When I am lectured by Theresa May I am astounded at how condescending May is. May is always right and we must all learn to do as we are told.
May is the schizophrenia of Politics. May will ask you to trust her but May will never trust you. May blows with the wind and May’s selfish ambition will destroy this country. May retreats into combat mode every-time she is disagreed with. This is not healthy as it blinds May to options. With May everybody is wrong and she alone is right.
My own interaction with May is limited to my personal experience with the Home Office of which May was Minister and my efforts to put to May new ideas for the United Kingdom. Ideas May does not have. Nothing – zilch. Not even an acknowledgement. Ok it may be that my ideas have no traction – but many people who read of them support and welcome my new systems and views.
As for May’s management of the Home Office I am afraid I found it wholly inadequate – so much so that my M.P is supporting my Parliamentary complaint as to its interaction with me.
May as Home Office Minster has not addressed the growing incidence of child abuse in the United Kingdom. This is a very serious matter and reducing Police numbers will not result in reducing child abuse.
I could go on and on. I am good on Economics. I wish I could say something good about May’s economic Policy because so many peoples futures are dependent on it. I am unable to.
However Corbyn is not the answer to all our Prayers – but he does listen and he does want change and he wants it with the People for the People and because of the People. That is what the United Kingdom needs. Government for the People.
My personal opinion is that May is not suitable for senior Management as she lacks attention to detail. This lack of attention to detail was displayed at the China G20 meeting when May was lectured by the Japanese Government as to the dangers of Brexit to the U.K Japaneses car manufacturing industry. May was totally unprepared and had no credible answer.
May has also deliberately ignored President Juncker’s 5 option proposal for E.U reform. Why? Because May supports Brexit only to ensure she stays in Power.
Therefore, in summary I and I can only speak as one man, I want Pride and Principal not Selfish Ambition. Corbyn gets my Vote.
