Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour MP for Islington North is a principled man, not swayed by focus groups, but a steadfast campaigner for true socialism. And the recent polls show that he may well be the next leader of the Labour Party. We welcome this and send fraternal greetings to comrade Corbyn: this blog is coming out as a proud support of Jeremy to lead the people’s party.
Of course the bearded old nutter has been wrong on almost every single issue of the past 30 years and is utterly unelectable outside the champagne socialist honeypot of London N1. His steadfast defence of welfare scroungers, illegal economic immigrants, foreign aid for kleptocrats across the globe and numerous other loathsome causes means that core Labour voters in the Northern welfare safaris will find him as much as a turn-off as folks in the hard-working South.
With the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary party now able to squeeze into a Gents lavatory and led by a bloke who is not even a household name in his own household, a Corbyn led Labour will guarantee perennial Tory rule.
But naturally that is not our reason for backing the mad old leftie. No of course not.
