I woke up this morning to the news on BBC London that Jeremy Corbyn has taken a clear lead in the Labour Leadership race. What is more interesting is the fact that he has actually made people take an interest in the issue. The rather sad thing is that the three political pygmies who face him have not responded by upping their game, but have simply resorted to saying "if Corbyn wins the world will end". Perhaps even more disturbing is the fact that some Labour MP's are talking about plans to defy the democratic will of the party and oust Corbyn if he wins, using a clause in the constitution designed to get rid of a failing leader, not one they don't like who has just been elected. They claim Corbyn will destroy the Labour party, but I suspect that if they pull this stunt, it will be them who re the assassins.
As I watch the car crash which the Labour leadership election is increasingly looking like becoming, I can only wonder if maybe Tim Farron has chosen a very good time to take over at the Lib Dems. George Osborne and the Tories seem to be showing us that the Lib Dems actually did quite a good job calming down the rampant right wing bash the poor ideology of George and his mates. It seems that the Labour old school cannot stomach a leader who refutes this. We are in for some "intersting times".
