Are you really left wing?

And here's the first one.. :lol:

 

i agree with all of those except the nato one, as it happens. unsure how withdrawing from nato would benefit the UK hugely.

 

i wouldn't say i'm as out there as corbyn, but he definitely speaks more sense on a lot of issues than the blairites, a lot of whom are tories in disguise.

I'm liking this Trump guy at the moment.

 

JOKE! Before anyone starts.

 

You can't define someone's political stance on single issues in this way. I remember going that political test where it put you on a political plane between libertarian and authoritarian, and socialistand whatever the opposite was. I was sat on top of Ghandi.

nato was actually formed by the atlee labour government, along with partner countries. abolishing it has never been an old labour policy.

I think it's a concept worth revisiting with the end of the cold war - like trident more from an economic pov for me.

But those on the left will criticise his decision to promise to moderate austerity, rather than to end it. In the absence of a clearer dividing line between the Tories and Labour, voters hungry for an alternative to the coalition were drawn to the SNP, Ukip and the Greens.
