Oh, the replies... :roll:
The second reply is from a Liverpool supporter who backs Rees Mogg & Bunglin' Boris. Where do you start?

The Corbyn project is an odd hill to choose to die on.
For those involved, it isn't. It's their own Brexit - it would have worked perfectly and been a socialist utopia if only everyone had believed hard enough and been unswervingly loyal and positive and obedient.

It's an excuse for life, and freedom from responsibility or consequences. "We gave you the answer - YOU messed it up by proving it was a load of horse shit and the guy in charge was a selfish, grumpy old bastard with no clue what he's doing. It's YOUR fault it didn't live up to MY expectations because YOU didn't do the hard work." etc. etc.

The comments here give the whole thing away. One commenter (I'm paraphrasing) says 'great, lets extend this nationally and make our voices heard on brexit'. A perfectly fair point given Corbyn's lack of traction on the issue. The reply? 'Not so fast - this is about getting rid of/silencing people who don't do as they're told'.

Corbyn's Labour - or at least the people who say they're Corbyn's Labour - couldn't give two hoots about democracy, or giving members greater power. It's all about petty revenge and redefining anyone whose idea of socialism differs from them as a Tory.

Ronnie Campbell MP (Blyth Valley) categorically stated to Michael Crick on C4 news that, in his belief, Corbyn had voted leave in the referendum. When checked he replied again in the affirmative.

I'm with Ronnie on that one.

Its just a belief and Campbell has no evidence for this, according to Jez fans on Twitter. Why are they bothering they're going to support whatever position Corbyn takes anyway?
Well, yes. Clearly Corbyn's outrageous claim personally to have voted Remain in the referendum cannot be conclusively gainsaid because of the secrecy of the ballot but it has been beyond obvious for a very long time that he is lying through his teeth about this, and might just as well have come clean and admitted that he did vote Leave - shades of claiming that he said "stupid people" and not "stupid woman".

You're right, though. The Cult believes whatever Corbyn says.
