I would swap George Osborne for Jeremy Corbyn any day

 "...only allowed his name to go forward out of a sense of duty and responsibility to the left..."

In this one line the sneering cynical Stefan Stern writing on LabourList unwittingly reveals why Jeremy Corbyn should be admired across the political spectrum:  http://labourlist.org/2015/07/is-jeremy-corbyn-serious/

When do you EVER see the word "politician" coupled with the phrase "sense of duty and responsibility" ? (except when they are talking about themselves and bigging each other up and talking about each other's "bottom").

Stefan Stern, if you want a wily crafty do-anything-to-get-power politican you can have George Osborne.

I would swap George Osborne for Jeremy Corbyn any day.

PS this is not to decry what George Osborne has achieved, I just don't think he is the right person to become leader of the Conservative party, not with his record on social issues and lax attitude to immigration.
