Will Corbyn survive?


He is Labour leader. Been in Parl since 1983. Ultra left.

First elected by mass membership and 3 pound supporters.

Tories for Corbyn phenomenon.

Labour doing v badly. Behind in polls

24% approval v May 54% approval.

Labour came 3rd in Scotland. worst result since 1950s.

80% of Labour MPs voted for Corbyn to go. Lacklustre campaign for Remain. He was previously anti EU..

Polls show Labour may scrape it

up against Owen Smith – little known. new MP. more moderate. has made left wing noises.

What if Corbyn survives? Labour will struggle despite Tory travails.

NHS strike, austerity, economic stagnation will hurt Tory standing.

Corbynites will strive to de select moderates. Like Aqua song: Back to the 80s.

Luckily for Labour Farron packs no punch.


About Calers

Born Belfast 1971. I read history at Edinburgh. I did a Master's at UCL. I have semi-libertarian right wing opinions. I am married with a daughter and a son. I am allergic to cats. I am the falling hope of the not so stern and somewhat bending Tories. I am a legal beagle rather than and eagle. Big up the Commonwealth of Nations.
