John, you should know better than most not to make such stubborn predictions. Who would have predicted a year ago that Jeremy Corbyn would be the Labour Leader?

The constant comments of his so called massive support is always touted as justification for his platform. The real truth is that this was on the back of labour activists (old and new) who are disillusioned by the parties move to the centre. In the real world if he is still around in 2020 his policy’s and beliefs will destroy the labour party for decades to come.

The same view we’ve been hearing since Corbyn came out of nowhere: he’s a Troskyist, he’s a naive no-hoper, terrorist-lover etc, etc
The truth is that he’s what would have been termed a middle of the road left-winger before the rise of the far-right neoliberalism that has infiltrated many instituions of power across the globe in the last thirty years.
The alternative that he offers is what the people have been deprived of for many years and now they are seizing their chance at having their views represented.

Every unexamined cliche about Jeremy Corbyn listed in a litany, without any thought given to the real meaning of this man’s rise, against all odds, to the leader of Labour. Shouldn’t the author be interested in who the mass of supporters are and what they are thinking, what moved them to support Jeremy C.in overwhelming numbers. With ideological blinders on, John Lloyd is missing the boat by miles, and is doomed to continue writing in this same manner, recycling empty “facts” about Jeremy Corbyn and predicting/wishing for his demise.
