As the tile asks where are they.
Jeremy seems to have disappeared from political debate or comment.
And Nigel having had his day instigating the Leave campaign seems to have gone to ground.

Perhaps they are very busy involved with political overload, if so the press seem to be giving them a wide birth & just don’t seem to be bothered to report anything about them anymore .

Perhaps I am being lazy & not reading/looking in the right places
Any thoughts / information on the subject GNetters?

Corbyn is in Scotland this week.

Anniebach Wed 22-Aug-18 14:40:55

As usual Corbyn goes missing when there is mention of a second vote, he has said the referendum vote was to leave and that’s it. He has always wanted out.

OldMeg Wed 22-Aug-18 14:41:41

Yes, it’s entirely up to the media what you see and hear. They have been chasing up other stories.

Actually Nigel was on the news the other night.

OldMeg Wed 22-Aug-18 14:43:11

There’s been mention of a second vote since the day after the first result Annie

good to be disagreeing again 🤨

Anniebach Wed 22-Aug-18 14:46:13

OldMeg, 😀not from Corbyn though, from the labour MP’s yes,

OldMeg Wed 22-Aug-18 14:47:26

From all the remainders too and all the Lib Dems

Corbyn is in Scotland, his satement on Brexit and needing a deal was discussed on the radio recently. So no idea why you wouldn't know where he is. Unless of course its because he's Up North!

Bridgeit Wed 22-Aug-18 14:53:23

Ohhps looks like I put too many A & Rs in Farage, apologies🤭

Parsley3 Wed 22-Aug-18 14:58:20

Corbyn is not missing. He is in Scotland drumming up support.

Nicenanny3 Wed 22-Aug-18 15:02:46

Nigel Farage is on LBC most nights 7 to 8pm.

paddyann Wed 22-Aug-18 15:07:04

Corbyn is rallying his troops in Scotland and putting his size 10's in it as usual .He forgets to do any research about things so we have come to expect he will get things wrong.Not knowing that Scotland has ALWAYS had its own systems of Law and Education is a bit odd for the leader of the opposition and even stranger not knowing that the Scottish (labour) branch office as we call it has only influenced a UK government win twice in the last 70 years is another of his blunders.

Anniebach Wed 22-Aug-18 15:14:34

What is Corbyn drumming up support for?

Parsley3 Wed 22-Aug-18 15:23:17

He is drumming up support for Labour for the next general election.

Anniebach Wed 22-Aug-18 15:43:29

Thank you Parsley, someone should tell him Scotland voted to remain

I've said before, you need to see other media than MSM. Like EvolvePolitics via the Independent Media Group on Facebook. Or France24 or AlJAzeera on the tv as examples.
Channel 4 is not too biassed, unlike the BBC *
Most of the anti-semitic stuff just got out of hand, with provably outright lies being spread by Tory supporters, all of which just increased Labour membership.
(* BBC took no action against Lizzi Watson, in her capacity as editor on the 6 O'Clock and 10 O'Clock News? She was last week allowed to oversee reports on Margaret Hodge - HER OWN MOTHER?)

Nigel Farage has his London only radio programme. Since he wants a no-deal crash-out Brexit he is a bit out of line with the rest of the country, but I'm sure he'll be back when he stops getting his MEP salary

JenniferEccles Wed 22-Aug-18 16:18:57

I have no idea of Nigel Farage's whereabouts, but as for Corbyn, well, he's probably very busy trying to locate other graves of vile terrorists to lay wreaths at.

Anniebach Wed 22-Aug-18 16:50:41

If he finds any Jennifer he will soon forget he was there

Fennel Wed 22-Aug-18 18:34:41

As NiceNanny says, NF is on LBC, very often, and has by no means given up.

petra Wed 22-Aug-18 18:56:38

As I said on another thread * all the Brexit campaigns are getting together* to fight against the chequers white paper.
I'm sure NF is very very busy.

Baggs Wed 22-Aug-18 19:02:23

Corbyn's not the only one who said the referendum vote was to leave and that's that. Our Prime Minister at the time said whatever the vote was would be implemented too.

Hasn't Corbyn always been a Eurosceptic?
I believe he's in Glasgow this week.

Anniebach Wed 22-Aug-18 19:17:32

Yes Baggs he has but most of the labour MP disagree with him

Chewbacca Wed 22-Aug-18 19:39:54

"Whilst Corbyn is in Scotland he's been meeting refugees and asylum seekers regarding ending their accommodation in the private sector and also discussing having immigration and asylum policies devolved to Scotland." Not mentioned anything about any 2nd vote yet.

Jeremy Corbyn has called for an end to the privatisation of refugee accommodation as he met asylum seekers in Glasgow.

Why would anyone be interested in the whereabouts of either of them? confused

Jalima1108 Wed 22-Aug-18 20:26:11

Are they on holiday together?

Well - you never know!
