The right of the Labour Party, for all its doom-stricken expressions and angry attacks on Corbyn and his adherents, is in fact being insufficiently pessimistic. They seem to think that if they replace their leader with a balding, uncharismatic, middle-class technocrat, it will be sufficient to avert the collapse of the Labour electoral coalition, ride out the politically destabilising effects of Brexit, and confront the emerging problem of a new fascism that could define the future of western politics. Myself, I shall stick with Corbyn.
The Establishment in the Labour Party has become entirely and dangerously detached from its activists. Hopefully, when their more purist notion of the membership returns Corbyn as leader once again, they will accept this as the verdict of the "long-serving members", acknowledge that their impressions and preconceived ideas have been wrong, and begin to unite behind the leadership against the government.
