It has been an extraordinary last few days in politics. A new Tory PM his policies & strategies in apparent chaos, his party split as he sacks 21 of his own MP’s for putting best interests of the country ahead of their ambitions & the ambitions of disaster capitalists. A PM that within days of assuming leadership has lost the trust & support of his own brother. Trapped & unable to call a General Election Johnson is forced by the alliance of opposition parties to go to European & ask for an extension.
This is the third PM Jeremy Corbyn has faced & he has as opposition leader defeated a sitting government more than any other leader.
Corbyn since his election to the leadership has created the largest mass membership party in Europe, financially & politically independent of any single millionaire donor. Despite almost universal opposition from the MSM we have the number of supporters & the financial stability to be able to put up a strong fight in any future general election.
Corbyn has been able to be the most successful opposition leader because he took the Tories so close in 2017 election. Against all expectations Corbyn increased the parties share of the vote more than any other leader since Attlee ultimately damaging Theresa May’s govt to the point that it was barely able to function.
The next general election will be a huge challenge but we have the people, the money, the policies & a proven leader.
