    I know this report on Corbyn will be anathema to all right-wingers who read Mercopress - so that makes me particularly happy !!! But just remember this - the left in UK is today far more serious than the 'populist' left in Latin America. We need to give up lookign to Latin America for inspiration - we can teach them a thing or two. Happy New Year.

    Pyt- he does NOT have much support really amongst the normal sensible centre left that make up the majority of Labour and its voters. What he did get though was a lot of support last election simply because the Conservatives made such a total ****up of it and make themselves look idiots!
    But yes- he could well be the next PM - as several Conservative politicians seem hell bent on suicide! Did not know there was an inspiring populist left in S America? Arg and Chile just went right.Brazil in the middle in a mess, Oh do you mean the great success of Bolivia and Venezuela?

    All this babbling from a left wing loonie commie prick....who has NEVER held a regular job...indeed never finished his A levels....He is a dangerous dreamer,who's hero's all seem to be “Terrorist” murderers...and has no problem at all climbing into bed with any left wing dictator. In my opinion he is pretty much a gurantee that Labour will NEVER enter #10 with this cowardly mealy mouthed pile of shit at the helm.....Hurry up and die Corbyn...the world will be so much better off without you or those just like you...!

    The latest The Times poll puts Labour 2 points ahead, Corbyn has certainly energised the young who had never experienced the chaos of the socialist union dominated 70's. You cant tell these people anything they are so well meaning yet so gullible.
    The boundary changes to equalise the number of voters in each constituency will stop Corbyn, but will the Tories be able to impliment it?
    Unfortunately Corbyn isnt even a step up from the Tory rabble we suffer now! What a mess...

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
