Corbyn worked for TV channel that advocated marital rape!

I just saw this on Twitter (https://twitter.com/TimesCorbyn/status/1201534266724769792) and its totally outrageous. I'm no fan of Boris, especially when it comes to women, but this is another level.

Would you like a shovel to scrape that barrel with?

InfiniteSheldon Mon 02-Dec-19 19:08:44

I'm with you OP he is a misogynist through and through if any other leader had done half the things he'd done they would be crucified by the media.

Qcng Mon 02-Dec-19 19:20:24

Lol Corbyn is the most crucified-by-the-media politician there has ever been.

InfiniteSheldon Mon 02-Dec-19 19:25:20

Seriously he isn't the BBC practically worship him and Channel 4 actually does with Sky news vying for top Cirbyn handmaiden award. If Boris had worked for a racist, sexist rape supporting organisation do you really think that the BBC et Al would ignore it?

Practically worship him 😂

They've produced more hatchet jobs on Corbyn than any other politician

I think you have him confused with Johnson, at least two of whose gaffes they attempted to cover up.
I have no dog in this fight at all, I don't live in the UK, and couldn't vote even if I did, but the bias is absolutely clear.

Surely the twitter name makes it clear what the intent of the account is.

It may seem more classy but judging Corbyn on the basis of Times reports is as reliable as judging him by the Daily Mail.

For a few sundays I bought the Times to support their reporting on women's sex based rights, but the tone of the paper and their sneering, condescending reporting of anything vaguely liberal let alone left is depressing.

And I say this as someone who isn't aligned to any party, but have this quaint old fashioned idea that news coverage should be factual and balanced.

Johnson actually committed domestic abuse.

Care to comment on that?

The point is the media has consistently not reported on Boris f*ck ups unless they make a funny story about what a good bloke he is. Like Farage, they all just lap up the posh guy who is good for a laugh.

No other politicians would have got as far as both of these two imposters had without the collusion of the mainly male blokes in the media. In fact it is so blatant that one male journalist wrote about how awful it was that they had never held him to account during his so called political career and now here he was as PM! But he obviously thought it was still just a bit of a laugh.

Compared say to TM, who I am no supporter of, but became PM because Boris ran away knowing it would be hard work. The vitriol she got from both male and female reporters was just astonishing.

And the reality is, when you strip away the fantasy about Brexit her deal was probably the one that was somewhere in the middle given how close the referendum vote was, and that she was negotiating with 27 other countries. Who have said the new deal that Boris has said he negotiated in a matter of hours is basically TM's deal with a few alterations. But the reporting makes it sound like he has slain the european dragon as though he were St George himself.

The only good part about the media onslaught against JC is that when they did this in the last election it actually upped the number of Labour votes.

No this is a Cirbyn thread your whatabouterry doesn't change the premuse: Cirbyn is a misogynist

InfiniteSheldon Mon 02-Dec-19 19:56:36

It appears my 'o' s are faulty

Blossie0 Mon 02-Dec-19 19:58:48

Yawn!

BarbaraStrozzi Mon 02-Dec-19 20:23:03

Now, Corbyn is the number one reason I'm not voting Labour, but even I think you're talking shite on this one OP. Like others have said, are you going to villify any politician who's ever appeared on the BBC because of Savile, Harris, Hall, etc? Are you going to villify any politician who's appeared in the same shot as Randy Andy at an official function?

As smear stories go that isn’t scraping the barrel. That has burned straight through the barrel and is now burning up the earths core before shooting off to the other side of the galaxy at 0.9 the speed of light.

wafflyversatile Mon 02-Dec-19 20:28:07

Now that plastic straws are forbidden you're reduced to grasping at invisible ones.

This man is to blame for absolutely everything
He was at the scene of the fire of London
He used to be called Judas and did his mate, Jesus over
He helped build the Berlin Wall
Responsible for the sinking of The Titanic........

The Spectator has its moments.

Johnson actually committed domestic abuse
Eh? When?

lady69 Mon 02-Dec-19 20:58:15

Corbyn is very good at smearing himself without anyone here having to bother. His is the party of Men as women’s officer, pro self ID and amending the equalities act to the detriment of women. But vote for him if you seek those things out.

Qcng Mon 02-Dec-19 21:42:42

Eh? When?

How did you miss that news story?

The Independent

Qcng Mon 02-Dec-19 21:47:42

Lady69 I'm willing to set aside the risk of a few spotty male teenagers taking women's officer position for the bigger picture like nationalised rail services, rent control etc.

The tra thing has infiltrated all political parties. Women need to form cross-party to address it.

lady69 Mon 02-Dec-19 21:52:10

I’m not. It’s why i am on these boards. Women’s rights is my main concern.

Nessaofbarry Mon 02-Dec-19 21:52:36

Boris didn’t ‘commit domestic abuse’. He and his girlfriend had a row. Other than that, there’s absolutely no evidence that he is an abusive partner. The police didn’t take any action, his girlfriend is still living with him, chances are it was just a spat that got a bit too heated. Maybe she was the one who was abusing him?
God, DH and I have blazing rows- does that mean we’re abusive to one another?

You can’t just say outright that someone is an abuser when no police action was taken and when you don’t know the circumstances. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

merrymouse Mon 02-Dec-19 22:15:26

Other than that, there’s absolutely no evidence that he is an abusive partner.

Loads of undeniable evidence that he is a monumental shit.

I think our standards for PMs should be higher than "no evidence of domestic abuse".
