Image of shabbily dressed Jeremy Corbyn sums up where democracy in Britain is headed
On Saturday, Labour committed political suicide and elected Jeremy Corbyn its leader. A picture of him, taken earlier in the week, provided illustration where the party will go with him in charge and summed this firebrand up for precisely what he is: A badly dressed far-left oaf.
The victory of Corbyn – a man who did nothing when presented with the allegations of 61 abuse victims and a man who likes to be pictured with foreign Communist leaders – is the death knell not only for a once great political force, but it is also a bad day for democracy. Britain, with the trouncing of the Liberal Democrats in May and Labour’s demise today, is now without a capable opposition party.
Labour should be ashamed of having chosen to have become nothing but a tinpot protest movement. The country deserves better.
