Corbyn supporter has a unusually authoritative approach to criminals
Pauline sounded lovely, but that didn't stop her presenting some pretty controversial ideas on how to track potential terrorists.
Most Corbyn supporters are liberal on pretty much any and all ideas. Pauline is not like most Corbyn supporters.
“In the short term I’m afraid I have a very authoritative idea for tracking terrorists.” She said, “I’d insert a chip into part of his country where he couldn’t cut it out.”
Iain was understandably shocked: “I’m so tempted to ask which part of his body you wish to insert the chip, but I’m not going to because it’s a family programme.”
Iain and Pauline talked her idea through and acknowledged there were some civil liberty problems with putting implants in people, especially when she said the chips would have to be put in potential terrorists who hadn’t actually committed any crimes.
With such extreme views you might expect Pauline to be on the far (far) right of the political spectrum.
Then she revealed who she was campaigning for in the election.
“I’m actually leafletting for Jeremy Corbyn.”
“Oh my goodness!” Iain exclaimed, “A Jeremy Corbyn supporter who wants to microchip people who haven’t actually committed a crime. I’ve heard it all now.
