Without a solid foundation, no genuine movement of opposition can ever be mounted.
I have routinely argued that the popular leaders of our history past, did so on the backs of popular movements. The future will be no different.
Martin Luther King, Malcolm X,
Mandela and others would have been pissing in the wind without the foundation of the people, striving for change. Jeremy Corbyn’s success or failure will be directly linked to the actions of the people that voted for him or that believe in his vision of a world without war, poverty and division.
The scale of the unhinged attacks on Jeremy Corbyn by the vile right wing media surprises even me. Each day that passes and with each measured response Corbyn makes, the more desperate the opposition becomes and for good reason. They know that there is nothing more dangerous than the people rallying behind an idea. That is what they fear the most.
The question is whether or not we are up to the task?#anotherworldispossible
One thought on “The Corbyn Factor”
I won’t ever vote for Corbyn, or his party, but I DO respect his right to lead the Labour Party. He was democratically elected, deal with it. One thing that has been missing in UK politics is a viable opposition to the Right Wing, be they Conservative, New Labour or Lib Dem, they all seem to swallowed the same manifesto. This country has long since needed not New Labour, but a New Harold Wilson, a Labour leader who is indeed Old Labour. What is the point of having three parties who all broadly speaking agree with each other, it stifles debate in the House and does nothing to serve the Electorate. The amount of bile being directed at Corbyn leads me to believe that he has the others rattled so they must attack and discredit him.
Give him a chance, he can’t possibly be worse than Bliar.
