Is Jeremy Corbyn Actually Talking Common Sense?

In what can only be described, as the single biggest grassroots uprising in politics our generation has ever seen is Corbyn really that much of 'threat to national security' as David Cameron says.

Well, some of Corbyn's not-so-radical ideas include a generally wide spread view to scrap trident. A £2 billion a year scheme aimed at protecting us via offering nuclear war to any confident evil dictator that aim's their barrel towards her majesty's throne. Now in a time of heavy austerity and the very minuscule chance that trident will ever be used, unless you have a suicide wish, then this seems a rather sensible idea. Another of his crafty ideas include to raise the minimum wage rather then leaving people to scrape the bottom of the barrel and be pushed towards the benefits scheme to be then considered a, 'benefit scrounger'. So we raise the minimum wage from a measly £6.70 for anyone over 21 to £10 an hour, something that shouldn't harm huge businesses like Starbucks that only paid £8.7 million in tax after only making £3 billion worth of sales however 'business experts' would disagree.

To top off the entire Corbyn masquerade he is a staunch anti-war campaigner who was heavy critic of the Iraq war, which as we know was a complete disaster that has acted as a catalyst to destabilise the entire Middle Eastern region. Luckily however we managed to save much of the oil from falling into the wrong hands as its now safe and secure under western control.

So why is this anti war, pro-equality, social activist such a threat to national security?

When much of his thinking seems more like common sense it appears that the Conservative propaganda machine is beginning to oil up its parts for a long public war against 'Jez'. Much like in the last general election, where the threat of instability and families being hurt gave the Tories a slender majority, it appears the same tactics will be regurgitated and thrown at the public again. But Corbyn doesn't 'do personal' and offers a 'new kind of politics', which is why people are beginning to sense a movement and a real opportunity for political and social change.

That was the mood at the Refugee March where Corbyn spoke as well as I was strolling around with my camera noticing a sense of unity and hope for real positive change amongst everyone. From people welcoming refugees, to folks providing papers declaring it was the people's victory to the individuals attentively listening to a rarity. A genuine politician, with passion, with his own ideas about the world, who answers a question when asked, who stands up for what he believes and imagines a more equal society for us all. Where the working classes have just as much a chance as anyone else at having a decent shot at life, at owning their own home and having a family, where they can educate themselves at university as well as their children.

This common sense for a society that benefits us all is why I too I support this movement.
