Emily Thornberry better than Boris 3 Months, 1 Week ago Karma: 49
She came across on Marr as better than the buffoon. It does strike me as odd that other viewers don't see it the same way. Are they being brain washed or am I?

I agree she is better than Boris and the shifty Fallon. It was ungallant of him to have a snipe at Marr's joke about a love-in with Emily at the end of the show. Sense of humour by-pass.

She is not a typical labour politician, surrey up-bringing with a posh accent, could appeal to the middle-clases.

Everyone seems to criticise Corbyn yet still nobody, nobody has explained to me why, other than media comment and instructions. Andrew's rude snipe about Diane Abbott is an example. I can understand why someone doing dozens of interviews who is NOT in government could make stupid interview mistakes. Silly but nobody is perfect. And nothing at all to reflect on Corbyn. Jeremy has many extreme policy views I disagree with. So do all other parties. But his stint in opposition has been flawless as far as I can see. His rebellion against previous Labour stances I often agreed with (war, for example; Blair liked it, Corbyn disapproved). ITK does just what Fallon did; rephrases opinion as facts. And relies on polls (never wise). Every time I see or hear Jeremy direct, I'm impressed. He does not slip into howling insults or losing his temper, despite terrible provocation. When his enemies cite problems (the anti semitism, for example) they always do the media thing of exaggerating (look at how Ken Livingstone was vilified - the media changed his words and smeared him disgracefully to get a better story).

And of course, like Trump, May goes the route of cliches and truisms to grab the voters who find it impossible to think more deeply than a tabloid headline and quote.

Are the majority of the public so easily persuaded? That "gives me a stronger stable mandate" rubbish is so patently false yet, I suspect, nicely simplistic for voters. Will the majority fall for it? I suspect they will. And blame her when it fails in a few years, chuck her out, vote for someone else with a better image; good hair, nice teeth (big problem there, Jeremy). Am I too cynical?

Do Theresa May, Tim Farron or Caroline Lucas? I can't say that I've noticed them doing that.

Daily Mirror/ITV: Jeremy Corbyn reacts angrily to question about his Labour leadership from 'utterly obsessed' media
The Telegraph/BBC: Jeremy Corbyn loses cool with BBC presenter after refusing five times to say whether Labour could win snap election
Business Insider/Sky: Jeremy Corbyn loses his temper when asked if he might step down before the 2020 election

Cf. Google searches: "Theresa May" angry, "Tim Farron" angry, "Caroline Lucas" angry

We know you like the Tories ITK but assume you'll not be voting this time for the party responsible for our Brexit?

The Tories are not responsible for Brexit - the (stupid) British public are !

do you remember that she had to resign over racist posts ?
(and is only "back" because the Fruitcake has so few choices - 81% of his MPs opposing him)

I get so confused; was it Labour who promised a referendum? Or the Lib Dems? I thought it was the Tories when they got a majority and kicked out their (better) coalition partners. Allowing them to give the decision to the uninformed and stupid masses (some of whom, foolishly, had voted for them).

Thats right, JK, the Tories offered a referendum - and are now doing the peoples' bidding by putting that decision into effect.

Governments are often criticised for not listening to the public - this time they are being criticised for doing exactly what the majority asked for!
