I think the British people think differently about Corbyn have done, Tories are on 47% while labour is stuck in the high twenties. That's unprecedented and it shows that he is disliked.
No that is not a fact - an empty phrase. It is a poll and reflects the state of British politics, not a rational state of affairs. People will dislike Corbyn because he is the subject of a well documented campaign of vilification.
I am not focused on personalities so much as policies. Tory policies (the ones we can identify in the rubble) are disastrous and we need an alternative to austerity with all it implies. We also need an alternative to the neoliberal economic model. Only Corbyn is offering to adddress these needs.
Where I may have to differ with Corbyn is on Brexit, because the evidence is growing of the harm this will do.
Try this article if you never want to sleep again. If nothing else it may help to puncture your ignorance about the true impact of Thatcherism and subsequent neoliberal economic policies from both the Tories and New Labour.
This country is drowning in its political ignorance and it needs to wake up. If people cling to Corbyn, maybe he is a place holder until we find some decent fresh political leadership. We will not get that from the current range of rivals. At the least he is outstanding for his integrity and consistency.
