Just think. If Labour hoovers up all those frustrated Remain voters, the prospect of a Corbyn PM immediately becomes more real.
Now, it could be a mere matter of arithmetical calculation between dumping all those working-class traditional Labour supporters who voted ‘ Leave’ - (but many of those are alienated already, what with open borders and mass Muslim immigration) - and gaining the 48 per cent. (But would the middle-class Remainers really stomach all that redistribution of wealth and enforced equality of outcome?)
Anyway, the prospect of a hard left government is bad enough, without the thinly disguised antisemitism in the form of all those imaginary lifetimes spent opposing antisemitismandIslamophobia and all forms of racism apart from anti-Zionism.
Jeremy Corbyn is a preposterous figure. His resemblance to Wilfred Brambell isn’t just a joke, like pretending Nicola Sturgeon is interchangeable with Wee Jimmy Crankie. (Well, she is a bit )
No. Jeremy Corbyn’s reedy little voice is exactly like old man Steptoe’s, and the way he pronounces certain vowels - for example listen to the way he says “those” - there’s a ‘w’ in there somewhere. Andrew Marr should have asked him to say “‘orse and cart” just to show us where we really are and what’s what.
Bedazzled by that kiss from Joanna Lumley perhaps, Andrew Marr failed miserably when interrogating the deceitful old weasel about antisemitism. There they sat, face to face, fish in a barrel. Lights, camera, action, and Marr snatches failure from the jaws of a sitting duck.
How could anyone elicit anything new by confronting him with the exact same selection of incidents that have been gone over a million times? We’ve heard the same old evasive answers and limp excuses a million times already. Well rehearsed. For goodness sake what does the BBC (we, the licence fee payer) pay you for, Andrew Marr? We need our interlocutors to be incisive and steely; to wrong-foot our weasels, expose their weaknesses and force them to confront their own shortcomings.
