    Privy Council Meeting.......


    0 Not allowed!
    Corbyn unable to attend due to 'prior commitments', although what these maybe is unknown.

    Much as I am enjoying watching JC make an arse of himself, I am worried that he is doing such a magnificent job of it that he will not be around come the next election.

    Come on Jezza, pull yourself together!
    Old Git from Crystal Palace is a convicted *****, but he won’t tell you that!

      I think the description of 'clown' would be more appropriate

      Labour said it was not a snub and pointed out David Cameron took three months to be sworn in to the council. I say hang DC for being a Commie pig dog Queen hating pinko scum.

      Well, I've had a read and I'm a little disappointed - if he really has set up a 'private apppointment' just in order to avoid an embarrassing scene, then that seems a little unlike him - doesn't seem to be his style. However, his beliefs will put him in some awkward situations and there will be more of this kinds of thing. I think it's hard to be principled if you're a politician when those principles are not shared by a significant proportion of the population - you are open to ridicule, but, if he sticks to his guns, he will win some respect. God, I'm even boring MYSELF here.....anyone looking forward to the Leeds match?

      He really is hitting a nerve, isn't he? Yet another extraordinarily petty overreaction over nothing much at all.

      In all honesty, I hadn't previously really thought of him as that credible a major contender. But these daily rather shrill, frantic and desperate attacks on him from the right suggest that he must be. Fascinating to see.

      Cameron didn't swear in at Privy for 3 months according to the BBC. Fuss about nothing.

      there wasn't a meeting for 2 months and then paternity clashed. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...-a6686096.html

      its not a massive deal, except that its part of the job as leader of the opposition. Corbyn is doing this on principled grounds, he is a stated republican so fair play to that. how this would affect his ability to be a Prime Minister in a constitutional monarchy should be a question his supporters are asking.
      The English know how to make the best of things. Their so-called muddling through is simply skill at dealing with the inevitable.

      Well, quite. Interesting snippet from the Guardian:

      "In practice it is possible, and frequent, for members of the privy council to be appointed without meeting the monarch through a device known as an Order in Council, but is rare for a party leader to use such a course.

      Corbyn’s office said that he had a prior engagement but declined to say how much notice had been given to Buckingham Palace, or reveal the nature of the private engagement that meant he was unable to meet the Queen."
