Of course, polls can be wildly incorrect. Elections are wildly unpredictable. It not completely impossible that Corbyn could convert the masses to an extent that would give him a mandate to fully implement his socialist policies without bending on a single principal.

Corbyn is not going anywhere anytime soon unless there is a defeat at a general election at the earliest. But even after Corbyn leaves his supporters will stay and they will remain active, so what needs to be done is not fight with them and add to the wall brick by brick but to try and reach out to them.

When the practical and economic feasibility of a routine 7-day NHS has been roundly debunked by senior doctors, service providers and analyists, it is only natural to ask how this is going to happen. Maybe, we ought to be thinking a little more naturally ourselves, and prepare for our complementary secretary of state for health to give us a very complementary 7-day routine NHS.

Ali Milani

Maybe, just maybe, our politics is more than that? Maybe people can recognise the difference between values and gamesmanship. It is clear to me that the reason the Labour moderates are failing to not only connect with the people of the country, but people in our own party, is they have abandoned the very principles for power.

Establishment politicians have failed to deliver for the ordinary voter. The Labour party led by a Blairite of a bygone age will be punished by the electorate and will have no chance in a general election.
