Can Corbyn cause huge upset on election night?
Voters give their views on leader
As the political polls showed Jeremy Corbyn was closing in on Theresa May, the Reformer asked Ruglonians if they believed the Labour Party has a chance of winning the general election.
With just one week to go before they took to the polls, residents were divided on their views of the Labour leader.
Robina Hopkins said: “I’m not a fan. He has done more harm to the Labour Party than the Conservatives have. He’s too left.
“He doesn’t have the personality. He has nice people around him but I don’t like him.”
Catherine Park liked the policies put forward by Jeremy Corbyn.
“I would like to believe he has a chance,” she said. “I wouldn’t vote for Theresa May in a million years.
“I feel like Scotland isn’t very influential. I will use my vote but it will depend on down south and it seems there is a very strong backing for Theresa May.”
Victoria McAllister was still undecided.
She said: “I don’t like him. I’m not very keen on him but I’m not too keen on Theresa May either.”
Jim McGeechan said Jeremy Corbyn’s recent performance had impressed him.
“He seemed good on the last TV show, the Jeremy Paxman one. I would like to believe that he can do what he says he wants to do. I hope he would do OK.
“I’m still deciding between the Labour Party and SNP.”
