It's only a matter of time before there is a serious concequence to all this whipping up of hatred.

That means he is actually scoring higher (just) than someone who has said she would step down before the next GE. What a guy! The momentum is catching. Just needs to overtake Boris Johnson now.
I read that as Approval rating, not disapproval. I was wondering how on earth 61% of people would think May had done a good job of handling brexit

Something I've clocked about the people who write Corbyn off because of his "IRA links"; they almost never have any understanding of the situation in Ireland, the history of the actual IRA, the context out of which the splinter groups formed nor the atrocities committed by British soldiers and government operatives on Irish soil. They think it was a strictly one way thing, or at least that the English suffered more, so when I hear/read people saying "the Irish should move on" or things to that effect, I'd wager that would happen a lot faster if the English stopped seeing the Irish as an enemy that acted with no reason.

Maybe, you also never hear any of the pro Corbz crew commending the efforts of T Bleezy and/or MM re the GFA - one of the most significant achievements of any uk government ever. Instead, heís despised.

Because Blair's term in power is defined by what came later, due in part to the fact that the actions he took RE: Iraq are still having an effect to this day. And besides, I wasn't defending Corbyn, there are plenty of things to criticise him for, it was more an observation of the ignorance and bigotry that stem from people who write him off simply because he didn't shoot Gerry Adams on sight. They talk so venomously about a situation they have little understanding of.

The hard work on the GFA was done before Blair came to power. He just did a de Gaulle and marched in at the head of the parade despite not having contributed to the victory.
