There are people who would prefer a leader who ties their tie better or knows all the words to the national anthem.


I find that very sad.

From Daisy Barber: 

"Jeremy Corbyn was criticised yesterday for 'snubbing' the opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup, citing prior commitments. As Boris Johnson put it: 

“This is turning into a national joke...Come on Jezza: Scrum down for England."

His prior commitment was a running weekly appointment to meet with his constituents. Yesterday, he sat down for a private meeting with my sister in law to talk about her housing situation.

Despite a waiting room full of people outside, and having recently been elected Leader of the Opposition, he nevertheless took his time to listen to and her story and fully understand the issues.

He treated her with compassion and dignity throughout, and promised to personally look into the case. On top of that, he insisted she return later so he could meet her kids, and then took the time to explain to my nieces the exact process required to make jam (there are things called pectins which are apparently very important).

By this time it had gone 5pm on a Friday, when he should otherwise have been en route to the RWC.

That's scrumming down for England in my opinion!"

Nice story but I'm not sure how to take it. Of course it is nice to see an MP being in touch with his constituents but he also has agents for this. Leadership means he should have more exposure to a wider audience and displaying statesmanship even it is for something he is not bothered by.

For me its help a constituent with a housing problem v a rugby match and no doubt ptawn sarnies

Fully understand other opinions but still feel he needs to project the Labour party in higher places than his constituency office. If he is happy being a fireside politician then credibility as a major opposition or suitable alternative to the others is seriously damaged.
