Oh look the Brexit fan boys already in full flow presenting lies as facts.

Corbyn never said he would wipe student debt. Labour pledged to abolish future student loans, however, in the NME interview he said they'd try and look into reducing post graduates who have debt. This isn't pledging to reduce debt and wasn't in the Labour Manifesto.

Coathanger also pulling made up stats out of his rear end.

It's users like him and Graham who need to grow up. Middle aged men throwing around insults like Snowflakes is immature and embarrassing.
Hopefully they will wise up after Corbyn done them up like a kipper at the last election.

Debts? I'll clean the slate he said.

Hmm, he then immediately did a 180 degree the day after the vote was over. Our hero cried the Millenials.

For Millennials read Momentum, a group deliberately trying to bypass democracy by encouraging civil unrest against democratic decisions.

More than 9 out of 10 left wing rioters, those so passionate about ways to right the world, live at home with their parents.

Millenials are a generation that need to wise up fast

Corbyn did not say that - the exact quote was:

“There is a block of those that currently have a massive debt, and I’m looking at ways that we could reduce that, ameliorate that, lengthen the period of paying it off, or some other means of reducing that debt burden.”

But hey ho, I'm sure the Daily Mail told you otherwise.

They live at home with their parents because your generation absolutely trashed the housing market and drove prices up and simultaniously let wages stagnate, making it extremely difficult for millennials to own a home outright. It's not because they are lazy, or whatever you other reason you dream up with no evidence at all. Please do some research next time before making ignorant statements.

Bu they can't grow up because they know no different. The indoctrination starts from day one! Corbyn sat there and let his friends say they would cancel debt and only days later said "er, no". He was happy for the lie to be perpetuated on his behalf without it ever leaving his lips.

The only thing the left has is a never ending supply of "youth" the older generations has seen the lies and the failures over and over and know better.

The video I posted is excellent, although I would say that, it sums up the millennials and snowflakes and social justice warriors perfectly. The bit about the cost of housing now compared to 30 years ago and low % rates at university is spot on. We had auniversity system to be proud off, now any youth club gives out a degree
Very well said, even Peter Tatchell was nodding along in agreement.

Its not often someone hits the nail right on the head and expresses what sensible people are thinking but he summed it up magnificently.

Hi Cameron, you must be new to these here parts?

As Graham1979 pointed out, Corbyn allowed it to be spread by his followers and supporters, that he would sort out their burden of debt. It was only after he had harvested the votes he clarified differently.

I know a fair few students who were fooled by this, and none of them were happy at his later backtracking.

As for the housing market, I doubt you will find a more passionate campaigner than myself, in demanding government action and sorting out the mess created by all those who held power in the past 40 years.

As for your comment that Millenials are lazy, well that sounds very much like a Corbyn victim mentality. Feel free to protest.

Who exactly trashed the housing market and let wages stagnate?
Supply and demand dictates both, the same goes for university places and costs.
Corbyn said he 'would deal with it' obviously meaning he would do nothing.
Incidentally, at 22 I had been working for 6 years with no debt, I had been saving not borrowing for a meaningless degree and had already bought my first house.

Edit, just to add, interest rates went up to 15% and negative equity happened just after I purchased.

my employer is a european manufacturer, and prices everything in €. this now makes the UK artificially expensive due to their conversion process. throw in potential tariffs on exports and i'm sure i'll be out of a job. stupid me for caring about being employed, right?

for more luxury things, my holiday this year is now 20% more expensive and i get less for my money than 2 years ago. you're saying this is good? really?

Uncertainty was caused by people like you Shauneco placing your trust in people like Theresa May and David Davis.

If I could be bothered I could quote threads where you spout nonsense like "All Hail May" and "No Deal is better than a Bad Deal".

And then months later admit you were wrong and that she is clueless.


A prime example of why the British Public should never have been given such a say in regards to EU Membership. We elect MPs to make decisions for us because 90% of us don't really have a clue on what anything other than what the mainstream media tells us what to think.

It's not uncertainty, the markets have locked in the devaluation of the pound, this the first tangible effect of Brexit. That's undeniable.

That means a 20% increase in prices for us deal hunters, our holidays and British importers and most manufacturers. You've seen it already on here right? More to come!

Won't effect me too financially fortunately, unlike the poor, of course particularly the North. I'm already feeling the cultural effect though.

Also, millennials are a demographic cohort, it's idiotic making a sweeping statement about them. Did all the baby boomers vote Brexit? It's cheap, obvious demonisation of people I of the opposing politics. Which is why Graham was so easily impressed by the pseudo-intellectualism of the video I'm sure.

If we hadn't wasted over year delaying and trying to scupper Brexit we'd be closer to Brexit. Obviously the pounds value has plunged. That's to be expected and pretty obvious. However that should have been short term. Long term after Brexit we would have been great. We would have been free. Free to negotiate with others, free to decide who can and who can't enter our Country. Free to deport whoever we want etc.

However the kind of Brexit deal we're likely to get isn't what we voted for, it's a shambles.

Yeah, Coathanger tried that line before, the unpatriotic remoaners were conspiring to delay things! It's a lie.

if you read my comment correctly you would notice i said 'countries with developed economies queue up' - i didnt say they were queueing up now did i.

economies such as Norway and Switzerland joined the EEA decades later than the founding EU countries (i.e. they queued up to join) - you really think they would do that if there wasn't a benefit? they pay the same fees as the UK for access to the single market, yet have no say in the running of the EU. that is what i predict the UK will be like in 5 years time.

For arguments sake, I'm gonna hold your generation responsible for trashing the housing market on 2 counts (I'll put this in as simple terms as I can for you):

1) The bankers of your generation giving a mortgage to anyone with a pulse (to make money off targets) and then the credit rating agencies of your generation slapping AAA ratings on that collateralized debt (to make money off targets). This easy access to credit made housing prices skyrocket (with the average UK house price has risen by two and a half times since 1997) and also caused the global financial recession.


2) Your generation also consecutively voted in governments that sold the available stock of council housing under the 'right to buy' scheme and failed to build new homes at anywhere near the necessary rate - which led to a chronic lack of supply, further driving up the prices.


However, I'm glad your anecdotal story about your experience acts as a solid argument for the UK housing market. I would never resort to pointing fingers at entire generations under normal circumstances, but your complete ignorance about this is making for a fun conversation for myself - a millennial.
