Rumour has it he will put that slogan "cancel student debt" on the side of a red bus and tour the country :LOL:

And with some of the polices they come up with during the conference, it's more than possible that they'd do it.

I'm amazed that they can say there'd be a run on the pound if they got into power, and then even expect to get elected after saying that. It's a bit like saying that I'll kill you if I come round to dinner, and then still expecting an invite.

I don't understand all this moaning about Corbyn and the Labour party from Conservative supporters.

Surely, the more left wing they are the better from your point of view.

You don't, by any chance, happen to think the voters are too stupid to know what they are voting for, do you?

Sorry EFL, but yes, people are too stupid to know what or whom they are voting for. Voting is often an emotial reaction, not an inteligent one. Most people used to follow their parents voting patterns, but nowadays, kids tend to vote labour out of idealism, and then change to conservative as they get older (or UKIP according to JD). And 9 out of 10 people will vote for the party that promises them freebies of some sort or another regardless of the consequences further down the line.

Exactly, it's Labour that are denying that aspect now. They agreed that they should go along with the will of the people, and now they are backtracking.

Students take out a loan from the govenment, and pay the universities they go to for their education. The government then charge interest on the debt, and will have to fund the shortfall in the loans that don't ever get paid off. So in the end, the shorfall has to get paid by the taxpayers. There's an argument that the students are paying twice for their education; firstly by paying off the loan at a rate of 9% of their salary over £21000, and secondly from the income tax they pay.

Where is the Will of the people when it comes to affordable housing,overcrowding in schools. hospitals closing, less job security.

What a total BS soundbite "Will of the people". More people would agree with the above as half of the people had their will disregarded.
