These are remarkable times indeed. Surely, the UK has some slightly younger but very experienced politicians in this time of national need? Perhaps, Jeremy can only attract far-left supporters and rebels, now that the Labour Party has been hijacked?

Opinion?

One response

  1. This demonstrates the need that the UK has for clearing out all but 200 of the MP’s ,459 of whom represent dead wood and unnecessary costs,the Hose of Lords is next and the Monarchy and civil service also need slimming down.
    As Dr Alf knows we have an unaffordable public sector and a legislature which is not fit for purpose.
    Guy Fawkes is needed now more than ever but unlike Lazarus he is not coming back unlike Paul Flynn and whatever zombies Jeremy Corbyn is going to exhume from Highgate cemetary.
