Maniac Corbyn is a product of trends from Left and Right

Corbyn is winning because the centre-Left has been crowded out by the modern Right, and the far-Left, in all its anger and bitter resentment, has summoned up its energy for one last throw of the totalitarian dice

Remember, remember, the 12th of September. Put it in your diary now. If you’re a political type, it could be your John F. Kennedy moment: you’ll always remember where you were the day the British Labour Party committed suicide, as Jeremy Corbyn was announced as the new leader.

Panic in mainstream Labour circles is palpable. Alastair Campbell and (today) Tony Blair have been quite explicit in saying that a Corbyn victory could be the end of the road for their party.

It probably would be. But the less discussed and equally interesting questing is, why? What is possessing Labour supporters who are eligible to vote to take a course of action that condemns their party to oblivion?

    I wonder who is his favourite person from history?

  • David Murrell

    Part of the left’s problem has to do with the icreased power coming from areas of left-wing extremism, from universitues, unions and the media cartel. Add to this the increased power from Muslim groups. None of these vested interest groups care a spit about the concerns of ordinsry middle class fsmilies. The hard left is racist, anti-Semitic and anti-free enterprise. Hopefully voters will reject this extremism.

    Labour only win when they have leaders who pretend to be conservatives. One would think the members understood that by now.

  • John

    What’s with the stupid hat? Is he trying to look like Lenin? Goodness! He’s leading the socialist vanguard!

    • Justin St.Denis

      It’s the Brit equivalent of a “touch of workingman”. JC is a fraud in all counts and at all levels. Only the Brits are stupid enough to vote for him.

    If he ever gains significant real power there will in fact be pogroms in Britain. Actual mass murders of Jews quasi-sponsored by the state.

    the voting public will reject the new hard left and that rejection will be the rational behind the left taking up violence…..again, as they always have.

    He’s got the cap and the pose
