Exactly right.

Corbyn doesn't give a diddly squat.

Re: Corbyn at the Cenotaph

I stood at our town war memorial in anorak as did about 70 members of my Scout Group.


I suppose I am to be condemned too?

A strong and valid point which I respect.

Of course not. You are not trying to be our next prime Minister and leader of our country as far as I am aware.

Do we expect our soldiers to wear a uniform when on parade ?

Not at all. However you werenít on national TV, representing your political party and by extension the kind of working man that died by the million in WW1.

Did you and your Scouts all wear uniform?

No, because your name isn't Jeremy Corbyn and people don't try to discredit you in every possible way.

Donít you think JC does a pretty good job of discrediting himself all by himself?

The Cenotaph is a classic example of exactly that. You can hardly blame people for how he turned up.

Well we usually parade in uniform but as this Northwest England it pouring with rain and we would have been soaked through in minutes.

Re: Corbyn at the Cenotaph

I asked the question "Would we be happy if an undertaker wore an anorak or jeans an a Tee shirt?" Nobody has yet offered a cogent reply.

My point was and is that whatever Corbyn's views he is expected to attend the Cenotaph in his professional capacity. He is not an unpaid volunteer Scout leader.

Attending the annual Remembrance parade goes with his job, and whether he likes it or not he should fulfil that duty with the utmost professionalism. What part of that duty did he not understand when he put himself up for the job?

If he doesn't like the heat he should get out of the kitchen.

Undertaker? Surely it would depend on the wishes of the departed and / or their family, similarly the mourners. Nowadays funerals (burnings or burials) are sometimes held in bright clothes which is absolutely fine. I would personally probably expect the undertakers etc to be in Ďproperí dark attire if only for some sort of cohesive look. Can you imagine if they all went casual, it would be terrible! Mourners would be fine in some peoples views, Iím undecided.

Agree on Corbyn, itís his job and duty, like it or lump it comrade.
