The truth is that the Chicken Coup was staged not because the Blairites think Jeremy Corbyn couldn’t win the next election….
It was because they fear he could.
The campaign to #KeepCorbyn is NOT (or should not be) about him as an individual.
It is an acknowledgement that this attempted coup by a coalition of media pundits and disgruntled MPs is a concerted attack on ALL and ANY who challenge the neoliberal orthodoxy.
The coup coalition may yet fail.
The Labour Party should then ditch the Blairites at the earliest opportunity. If they then wish to form their own pro-EU, pro-Austerity party to challenge Labour at the polls – then so be it. Good luck to them – they’ll need it !
Sometimes a photograph can tell you a lot about a person.
This was Jeremy Corbyn last week, not in a Rolls Royce or other fancy car, but rather on a public bus home, looking tired after a long day of campaigning.
He has the lowest expenses of any Parliamentarian and lives by the very principles he talks about, unlike most politicians, including the 172 MPs who stabbed him in the back.
172 knives …. and still standing !
