Corbyn, the man who can’t even find a properly busy train in the UK:

CCTV photographs show Corbyn’s photograph sitting on the floor of a ‘ram-packed’ train actually was staged on a train full of unreserved seats – including the one he went back to sit in after.  Virgin’s press release:

‘Seats were available on the train in which Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn was filmed sitting on the floor, Virgin Trains has found.’

‘CCTV footage taken from the train on August 11 shows Mr Corbyn and his team walked past empty, unreserved seats in coach H before walking through the rest of the train to the far end, where his team sat on the floor and started filming.’

‘The same footage then shows Mr Corbyn returning to coach H and taking a seat there, with the help of the onboard crew, around 45 minutes into the journey and over two hours before the train reached Newcastle.’

And this doesn’t even *start* to mention the gunfire Corbyn had to dodge when he landed in Newcastle.

    OK, I’ll try once again, then I’ll give up as you obviously have to get ready to go back to school (big school this year?). What does NC’s support for the bombing of Iraq have to do with the substance of the list of ‘issues’ for JC? The list, just to remind you, made by a Labour party member, not Nic Cohen, who just published it. In your world, does NCs support for the actions in Iraq makes everything he ever publishes incorrect? If he was to publish a piece today saying tomorrow is Saturday, would that automatically be wrong? Your ‘contributions’ to this thread on this particular topic are ludicrously illogical, and sorry to bore you again, but man playing at it’s most basic (and also laughably incompetent, given that you’re playing the wrong man). I’d appreciate a response to the list of issues, not more pointless name calling, a refutation or similar, but based on your other posts, I doubt I’ll get one.

    Good to see that you are keeping up your record of using that phrase in every post.

    To keep it simple. NC’s attacks on Corbyn for supporting republicans in N.I. while supporting the murder of innocent people in Iraq make him a hypocrite. His lack of concern for the indiscriminate attacks on the Palestinians while accusing Corbyn of being an antisemite are also laughable. The man is an arse.

  • gary thompson

    Good to see that you’re avoiding the point as usual. The attack on JC for supporting violent republicanism was not made by Nic Cohen, he just printed the list as drawn up by a LP member. Now, unless you are going to open another front in the paranoia fest that is Corbynism, and imply that Cohen actually wrote the list under a pseudonym, can you address the points without reference to NC’s support for what occurred in Iraq.

    So there were plenty of seats on the train… then why did you say you’d offered him a free upgrade to 1st class?

  • hgreen

    He said the comments were well worth reading and did not disassociate himself from them. As I said earlier trying to deny NC doesn’t support the contents of this column is idiotic.

    As for the individual comments and attacks against Corbyn that are made in the piece, they’ve been made and rebutted regularly elsewhere and considering the topic of this post are irrelevant.

  • gary thompson

    OK, so once again, just because NC ‘did not disassociate himself’ from the list of issues, and he supported the Iraq bombing, then the list isn’t worth looking at? Have I got that right? And, a list of question re JC’s integrity has nothing to do with a thread about whether or not he told the truth regarding the availability of seats on a train? Also, on the rebuttal front, to take one instance, JC didn’t align with Ian Paisley & Enoch Powell (for instance) to vote against the Anglo Irish Agreement?

  • hgreen

    I also believe NC to lack integrity. NCs opinion has been discredited on many occasions. I thus choose not to trust anything he puts his name to. You clearly do. I’m happy for you.

  • gary thompson

    So, nothing re your assertion of ‘the regular rebuttals’ to all the points made, just more ad hominem on Nic Cohen. The sooner you get back to school the better.

  • hgreen

    You’ve made a pathetic attempt to change the discussion. I’ve no intention of rebutting the contents of the NC article. As I said it’s been done elsewhere loads of times.

    This topic questioned Corbyn’s integrity by using a link to an article by someone who IMO completely lacks integrity. Laughably you attempted to imply NC didn’t support its contents which I’m pleased to see you’ve dropped.

    P.s. Well done not using that phrase for the last couple of posts. Glad I was able to help you there.

  • gary thompson

    I didn’t attempt to imply NC supported the contents of the post, that was explicit from his introduction to the article. To deny this would be ludicrous, and I don’t know where you got the idea this is what I was trying to do. What you have pathetically tried to do is distract from the content not written by him, by using NC’s support for the Iraq war as the reason to ignore the contents. At this point I would use the phrase you seem to deplore, but as you are obviously unaware of it’s meaning I won’t bother. Re rebuttal, I asked you for only one example out of a long list – something which (if untrue) would be really easy to provide. The fact you can’t leads me to suspect you know it is true, and are trying pathetically to bluster your way out of a corner. As you obviously don’t know how to debate on the point in question (on which incidentally, you originally replied to oneNI’s posting of the link to NC’s article, leading to this sub-thread), I’ll remove myself from the fray. No doubt, in your mind, you will see this as ‘having won’. Now you can free up some more time to monitor the internet to see is anybody else is bringing into question the integrity of the dear leader. Good luck with the task, you will be very busy in the coming weeks & months.
