The Economist pitches in and explores why a string of frontbenchers depart in protest at their leader’s tepid referendum campaign.
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.
