According to the influential Bagehot column in the Economist, Jeremy Corbyn is light on substance and heavy on salesmanship – in summary Corbynism is a political pyramid scheme.

This is an outstanding must-read article.

For me, Corbyn is a modern day Pied Piper of Hamelin.

  1. Jeremy Corbyn is what Stalin used to call a “useful fool”,someone who could be tricked into saying or doing almost anything and in Dr Alf’s terms he is also dangerous because he never considers how his promises of utopia are going to be funded but uses reasonable language to convince the gullible that £550 billion GBP can be borrowed without consequence to make it all come true.
    When this last happened under a Labour Government,the country was bankrupted under the iron heel of the IMF until Margaret Thatcher persuaded the Sultan of Brunei to bail us out.
    Corbyn’s “Red Guards” are young imbeciles who have short memories and who were never born when these events took place and Corbyn is counting on them to not know which certainly makes him doubly dangerous and a Pied Piper with a beard.
