With Britain now economically one of Europe's strongest nations, unemployment down and inflation at record lows, Corbyn's tax and spend plan would send the UK back to the days when the wealthy would leave for tax havens abroad. And the nation would sink into debt and even currency devaluation.
I don't think Corbyn will ever be accused of being led by the public mood. He has principles and direction in abundance and for these reasons alone is better-placed than the Miliband-paralysis of his leadership rivals.
I hope I'm wrong but Ed Miliband's restructuring of the voting system means that Corbyn will win and probably by a long margin. So come the 12th September, we'll have one man to thank for the death of the Labour Party: Ed Miliband.
If Andy Burnham is to avoid a similar fate, he will need to establish a credible position on Trident that honestly reflects his scepticism around the utility of nuclear weapons and the damage our possessing them has on the credibility of the non-proliferation regime.
It's no surprise that he's not in the most optimistic frame of mind. But when Labour's former leader spoke at Sandbag's relaunch a few weeks ago, his ...
It isn't just the politically disengaged who are through with the suits of Westminster and the false, scripted messages it pumps out - as the leadership contest has demonstrated, people are looking for something new, something real - and that is what Jeremy Corbyn offers, and that is how he could win a general election.
If Corbyn wins, he will surely be asked as the Leader of the Opposition to support further arming the KRG and persuading Baghdad to stop sabotaging the Kurdish economy.
If a week is a long time in politics, six weeks can be an eternity; but if Corbyn can stay the course, he may well be the outsider who leads his tribe and his country to a better future.

What has happened to the Labour party? Once the proud defender of the working classes, it has been steadily showing its true blue colours since it assumed the mantle of the now defunct and destructive 'New Labour' project.
The battle for Labour's iron throne has now really got going with the first of the broadcast debates. We know who the contenders are and what their positions are starting to look like. Alliances are being forged and battle plans are being prepared. It could get bloody...
Jeremy Corbyn secured the backing of 35 fellow parliamentarians for the Labour party leadership contest on Monday, in what was a nail-biting race to get his nomination in on time. Or at least, nail-biting for anyone who cared whether his name appears on the ballot sheet - of which there are few enough.
Margaret Thatcher has withdrawn from the Labour leadership contest due to fears that she is too radically left-wing to lead the Labour Party.
The Government sells the story of its intervention in way that does not frighten businesses. Labour failed at this. Given public opinion and the Government's own actions, it is not the case that 'anti-business' measures are off the agenda but if you are going to do them then there is a need to get the message right.
The Labour Leadership campaign is in full swing and all the Labour stars are lining up for a shot at the big time, including Blairite, Brownite, Thunderbird Puppet and Retired Geography Teacher. But if Labour are going to win in 2020, they must take away the eight valuable lessons from their election catastrophe.
