As UK Election Looms, Corbyn Is The Most Unpopular Opposition Leader Since 1977

Via Zerohedge…

Even before the hammer blow of yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling, it was for many a damning indictment on Jeremy Corbyn and Labour, that in a time of such disarray and division in the (now minority) government, that they are still behind in the polls and showing no real signs of being able to beat Boris Johnson and the Tories in an election.

As Statista’s Martin Armstrong points out, this situation is now also underscored by historic survey analysis by Ipsos MORIGoing all the way back to 1977, there hasn’t been a leader of the opposition which has inspired so little confidence among the British public.

When comparing the lowest ‘net satisfaction rate’ (see infographic footnote for a definition) of all opposition leaders, Corbyn is, with his current minus 60 percent, the most unpopular in over 40 years. Michael Foot managed to sink to minus 56 percent when sitting across from Margaret Thatcher in August 1982, but otherwise, no other leader has come close to Corbyn’s September 2019 low.

What a load of Bs! Zerohedge should stick to covering their own country’s political morass instead of printing rubbish on British issues of which they clearly have no conception.

That feeling when you’re more unpopular than a git like Miliband :))

Given labour’s newest new position on brexit ie call an election on the basis of brexit ‘neutrality’ (whatever that means) whilst perpurtedly agreeing with the manifesto position of respecting the referendum it’s no wonder cobyn has come under pressure – he has sold out to the right of the party – hopefully labour will be wiped out in any future ge

Which, of course, explains why he does’t want an election and is blocking it. The fools think we can’t see that. This, however, is only increasing his unpopularity. Which the fool also, it seems can’t see.

The banks (i.e. Jewish power in the UK) do not want Corbyn, so they did the ‘anti-semitism’ number on him. That plus the fact that he did not support Brexit, and now is playing political games by not going forward with a new election, in order to sabotage Brexit … is why he has fallen in the polls. A year ago, he would have won the election without a problem.
