    In the next 5-10 years assuming we actually deliver on Brexit or get Corbyn as PM (with a decent enough majority to deliver his plans). Which one will cause the biggest exodus of jobs, investment and trade in the UK?

    state your opinions and any sources.

    I'm assuming that quite a few experts and esteemed organisations have estimated the cost of Brexit (which brexit had you in mind?)
    but very few if any will have estimated the cost of Corbyn as PM. I can't see how the cost of Corbyn as PM could possibly be any worse than May has been.
    Additionally, we're not talking about cost to the economy, but also the cost to the country, (in human misery as well as GBPs) now and in the future, for the austerity packages.

    Seeing as neither is likely to happen in the near future, what you ask is is a bit of a conundrum.

    You say that, but remain voting conservatives wont want to vote BoJo in. Corbyn may slip in if the tory votes is too split.

    Conservative voters don't choose the party leader.

    MPs whittle down candidates to two, whoever they think is most likely to help them keep their jobs, and paid-up party members (there aren't many, and they average around retirement age) pick the one with the loudest voice. Lots of Tories admire Buffoon, except the ones who know him.

    Ths is, however, more democratic than the way the Brexit Party leader is chosen.

    Most people take account of the leader when voting for their local MP.

    Do you mean Civil Servants? Not leaders of Political Parties such as we are discussing here?

    Do you know what the French word "bureaucrat" means?

    No, I don't know what you mean, because you don't talk sense.

    Why are you asking about Civil Servants, when we're talking about the leaders of Political Parties?

    How is the UK head of state chosen?
    How is the UK second chamber chosen?
    How are UK Bureaucrats chosen?
    How are UK ministers chosen?
    How are the 100's of UK Quangos chosen?

    I just wanted to confirm that you only ask questions, and never answer them, thanks for the confirmation. Is your real name Andrew Neil?

    Civil Servants are not the Leaders of Political Parties. Hope that helps.

    I see you don't like answering questions.

    So nobody has a view on the exam question? Or is everyone waiting for someone to go first.
