Anne Lister BS: 3 paid? (109* d) RE: BS: 3 paid? 24 Jul 15


Oh, I am so tired of hearing how Corbyn will "make the Labour party unelectable" or will give us another decade of the Tories. The fact is we simply don't know what the electorate will do when offered a left wing alternative. We haven't been offered one for decades. At the moment Corbyn's key policy statements are pretty much expressions of popular feeling. His biggest problem, as always, will be the Murdoch domination of the media.
I prefer to be optimistic on this whole matter - Corbyn has at last ignited a lot of fireworks and a lot of people are talking of voting who have not previously shown interest in the Labour leadership. Nothing about it will be easy and there will be arguments in the Parliamentary Labour Party, but if he fails to win and if we plunge back into the mediocrity where we've been for so long, passively accepting the Tory lies, fudges and smoke and mirrors I for one will be looking for political alternatives.
