The Economist sums up why Corbyn must go, in the interests of both the UK and the Labour Party.

Under Mr Corbyn—who expressed admiration for Hugo Chávez, speaks of “friends” in Hamas and Hizbullah and has appointed a shadow chancellor who lists among his hobbies “fermenting [sic] the overthrow of capitalism”—Labour has ceased to be a credible alternative to the Tories.

Let’s face it, Corbyn’s supporters are from the Socialist Workers’ Party – he’s always been on the far-left of the political spectrum. Remember, for both the far-left and the far-right the end justifies the means. The Labour Party has been hijacked. Tony Blair is right in his brilliant op-ed in the NYT.

  1. Dr Alf is correct, Jeremy Corbyn has to go because he is a 1970s throwback to the bygone age of Trades Union activism in true “Dave Spart ” mode.

    He is unelectable, has ideas which it is easy to disagree with but has one quality which his critics in the Labour Party will never have which is honesty and consistency of view.

    With Corbyn what you see is what you get, a badly dressed left-wing firebrand, who has never grown up and has never changed his Socialist views.

    He will go down fighting as a martyr to his cause and will try to get his friends in the trades unions to engage in “direct action” to put pressure back on to the Alan Johnsons, Umanas, Eagles, Leslies, Hodges, Benns and Hunts of this world.

    The Government needs to have emergency legislation to stop strikes in essential public services before this happens otherwise it will be another “Winter of Discontent” which the City and major investors really will punish us for.

    The Labour plotters need to form a new party to replace the old one to which they can attract Farron’s Liberal Democrats and possibly some metrosexual Conservatives who really do not know what the word Conservative means.
    This will help concentrate minds in the Conservative Party to force it to select a new leader with the intellectual capacity required to provide new direction for the country, negotiate hard for EU reform if Article 50 is not to be triggered or negotiate good terms if the decision to leave stands.
