Or we could try and teach everyone Nash equilibrium. A coup would probably be easier though.

Or just shoot everyone who can't solve the "two guards, one always lies, one always tells the truth" riddle.

I swear 20:1 was just a figure I plucked out of the air... I am definitely not Jezza's speechwriter...

Only just seen he changed his mind on his new policy during the course of the same day. :lol: I'd comment on why it's still bonkers, but who knows if it's still relevant today? After all, his supporters are always saying he doesn't mean the nonsense that comes out of his mouth anyway... :yeahright:

I like him. You seem to have a pathological dislike for the man, which is your right, but in a world full of shit and corrupt politicians, I just don't understand the vitriol. :shrug:

I think he's a hippocrite. It was very telling that he wanted the salary cap to be well above what he earns....

As a politician, he's also completely inflexible. Part of being a politician is the ability to compromise, and be able to work out what will and what won't work. In an ideal world, everyone would just get along, share wealth and commodities, and have no need for politicians. We aren't in an ideal world, the vast majority of people are intrinsically selfish in some way or another, and so ideals have to be massively curbed to fit with what will actually work.

Corbyn doesn't seem able to bend, which is a massive flaw in both politics and leadership.

Wouldn't it be hypocritical to want it well below what he earns? :yeahright:

Dislike? No, he's thoroughly entertaining. I mean, he's not supposed to be entertaining, he's supposed to be a serious leader of the opposition. But that shouldn't stop us enjoying the comedy of the situation. It's funny how he got elected to the position in the first place. It's funny how he repeatedly winds up his fellow Labour MPs. It's funny how he's often at odds with his own party's policies. It's funny that he keeps saying idiotic things, only for his supporters to decide he meant to say something different that they'd agree with instead. It's funny that he's miles behind in opinion polls, despite the government not really doing that well. Of course, if you don't think he's a naive buffoon, then some of his associations are very questionable. But then it's hard to see how yesterday's farce was anything but sheer incompetence. Coming across as a nice man doesn't make up for a lack of leadership and ruinous policies.

Eth: Not really. It's not hypocritical to work within a system you don't agree with, merely pragmatic.

EDIT: following RTT's post, hadn't even thought you were getting at that. Obviously that would be hypocritcal, but it wasn't what I was suggesting, unlike comrade Stalin....

Only if he plans to keep the same salary after introducing the cap.
