Was a Corbyn fan because his overall policies of fairness for all is better than Brown/Blair governments and subsequent Tory and/or ConDem coalition. However, it has now become insufferable with his dithering over many issues, his inability to fight back against many untruths and the nonsense backward politics of denationalisation of previous government industries especially the Royal Mail. Royal Mail does not need to be a public service at all - times have changed so much and the letter side and USO is not fit for purpose... Keeping the USO is costly and makes the company whether private or public not as profitable, flexible or adaptable. We have the NHS - far more important and Transport especially Trains and networks. So why bother talking rubbish about renationalising royal mail with all the cost that will be involved and the backward culture of some of our colleagues. Dabbling with private schools too is not important - not a vote winner at all - makes it look like politics of envy. The schools can be taxed or subsidies reduced or removed but people should able to spend their money to buy what they want. I am not voting this election! Bring back Ed Miliband - I miss his measured approach and policies; pity!
