    I agree with most of this. Why should those who work hard all their lives pay for those who don't. The high rate of tax mustn't be punitive but there are plenty of high earners who could afford to pay more. Of course if they pay less tax then they might be richer and spend more money on employing people like me and you, so we pay their tax. It's a difficult balance. Same with austerity, you employ someone who pays tax then you sack them to save money and then pay them through the welfare state. Every government needs more money it's just working out who to rob first!

    I think you will find that most people would rather have a job than have to live a life on the dole. Corbyn just wants a fairer society for all of us. What's wrong with that? The gap between rich and poor grew bigger under Cameron than any other prime minister. May will be the same.

    We haven't left yet! The drop in the £ has ruined many businesses and investment in our biggest industries is at an all time low. Growth has also dropped off. I'm a tree surgeon not an economist but it looks bleak to me. However a deal with Canada and Australia would be good. Why do we have to leave the eu to do this?

    And we don't. I still think brexit was based on a pack of lies that life would be better outside the eu. I don't subscribe to that and will continue to what I can to scupper it.

    We, of course, think exactly the same of you! Better the devil you know than the devil you don't. And you really really don't.

    No, Germany will do everything it can to retain a good deal with us. It's the others we need to worry about. They won't be caring about ours or Germany's economy only their own. The Eu needs ALL the other member to agree to a deal, not just Germany. It took 7 years for the EU to agree to deal with Canada it is was nearly scuppered by a single Belgium municipal representative who wanted a better deal for their farmers. I fear May is going to sail our economy into the rocks just to get brexit.

    It's all very well saying Germany sells us 750000 cars a year but brexit isn't a deal with Germany its with 26 other countries. They ain't going to make it better or easier for us unless they get a good deal which will cost us dear. Now we've got a lame duck prime minister do you really think we will be better off?!!! All those winers from Wolverhampton will be wining even more.

    I was just getting to like Jeremy Corbyn, shame about his stumble today on woman's hour today. Even more of a shame how the BBC can't help but repeat it over and over (twice on pm). Can't help thinking they are a bit one sided.

    Mark I entirely agree with you, but they are here and here to stay. We shouldn't fight extremism with extremism. Did we not learn any lessons from from the IRA.

    Sadly we are no longer the host country, they are British citizens too. That's why.

    Only if it's left up to people like you. 25 million muslims in Europe. You need to learn to live with them, they aren't going away.

    Wouldn't it just be great if people like you ran this country. All our problems would be solved.

    Is the death of 22 kids at Manchester any worse than the hundreds of kids killed by Israelis or the hundreds of innocent Syrian kids killed by Russian air strikes or American tomahawks. We reap what we sow. We certainly need to be aware of who we let into this country because I'm certain these are all revenge attacks
