As often happens in the UK people ignore danger because they are blind to what is put in front of them. Let me illustrate.
a birthday present at the age of seven, is one example. It shows the top hatted Churchill, walking along the canal bank with the Kaiser, pointing with a swagger stick to the German civil engineers hard at work readying the canal for swarms of U boats ready to sink our shipping just 3 years later. The 1938 Paris Air Show where the Messerschmitt 109 fighter was on display was another. In its day that fighter was the equivalent of the B1 stealth bomber of its day,a marvel of aircraft engineering. No-one in the British Air Ministry or the public realised its significance because it was “hidden in plain sight”. When World War 2 started THEN people realised but by then it was far too late.
Jeremy Corbyn represents the same phenomenon, at first he was a white vested scruffy individual, in a peaked cap and ill-fitting jacket, on a bicycle. Then he metamorphosed into someone with a cheap suit and tie, now he has a much more expensive suit shirt and tie and is being helped by experts in social media and demographic profiling who know how to attract and win over young voters. His strength was being in a position where he was underestimated and ridiculed, which lulled his opponents into a false sense of security. He is not a student of Sun Tzu nor the Art of War but those advising him know it backwards as I do. “When you are weak appear strong” and the admonition to “look for gaps” are 2 gems which spring to mind.
Corbyn and his puppet masters, who may or may not be in the Kremlin, can be stopped but in truth there is very little time and the Conservatives need to act fast to decapitate May, replace her as leader, and then move against the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 under a new telegenic, fast-moving and capable leader with youth appeal.
Militant trades unions such as Unite need to be effectively neutralized too, as does Momentum for whom who nobody voted.
