Agree to agree/disagree. Pretty sure Foot was touted as KBG & Kinnock was portrayed as unfit to run an economy. Old sabotage tactics. MI5 & MI6 were all over both too, not insignificant players.

Again, if the coherence within Labour’s official Brexit policy had been clearer, Corbyn could have faired better. He has to accept some responsibility here, given how long the Brexit debacle rumbled on for. Senior Labour figures in interview couldn’t communicate this problem clearly, until the remain, revoke & reform position yielded some kind of logic. Then the anti semitism hernia strangulated.

I voted for him, gutted as fuck to have the current govt, they HAD to go last election. Now Coronavirus is exposing even more political ineptitude & failures in planning. Happy days.

@droid - fuck all personal, new member here just chewing the fat with hindsight.

Yeah, I agree. He could have done a lot better in a bunch of different areas, and the last election campaign was a disaster, but I do wonder if anyone could have overcome the level of structural opposition and dirty tricks he faced.

I disagree. Corbyn and Sanders, no matter how radical they were, ultimately wanted to accommodate the party. Trump didn't.

good point about trump...he made token gestures to the GOP (picking pence as vp, for example) but basically steamrolled the party, realizing his popularity electrified voters more than any Mitch McConnnell position paper.

in today's world, a reality TV star crushes a politician, no question.
