Tony Blair says he now accepts Jeremy Corbyn could become prime minister. The ex-PM told BBC Newsnight that a year ago he would have said it was impossible for the left-wing Labour leader to win. But he added: “There's been so many political upsets, it's possible Jeremy Corbyn could become prime minister and Labour could win on that program.” Read full article

    Because there's a British colony in the South Atlantic and it's ruled from London where Jeremy is currently leading the pack in the race to be the next UK prime minister with a personal electoral mandate.

    If the Cretin ever got into No10, then the UK would be on the road to a Maduro style economic crash.The Cretin is doing anything and everything he can to undermine the current government.

    I understand that “Mercosur” is so very establishment (when do you ever report the concerns of the poor and marginalised in Latin America, the world's most unequal societies?) but, for your information, the name of the leader of the Labour Party is Jeremy Corbyn, not “James” Corbyn. And yes, he is a leftist, something anathema to the elite that still rules Latin America in a way that makes the UK Conservative Party seem like Marxists.

    And who cares what Tony Bliar the war criminal thinks anyway?

    'It seems to me ridiculous that in the 21st Century we would be getting into some enormous conflict with Argentina about some islands just off it”

    Well said Mr. Corbyn.

    Marcos, Corbyn is a terrorist supporting cretin with very strong anti British views. He is irrelevant and even if he were to get into No10 he would not be able to achieve anything because parliament will not support anything he tries to do. It is ridiculous in the 21st Century that Argentina wants to colonise a territory whose inhabitants don't want to be colonized.
