An insurgent Corbyn will demolish media claims that the election is a done deal
I give it not a high probability let us say.
But unlike the prime minister, who appears to be pioneering a campaign method of saying as little as possible to as few people as possible, Jeremy Corbyn will speak to the country at every opportunity. The referendum campaign showed how engaged people are in politics when they are presented with a clear choice and an imminent decision. Polling shows that Labour’s policies are popular, and with a more engaged electorate as we near 8 June, those policies will cut through and boost Labour’s support as the campaign progresses.
Jeremy Corbyn will today pitch himself as an insurgent candidate, giving him the space to frame a hostile media as being a part of the establishment, desperate to maintain the status quo – a status quo that isn’t working for most people, that Brexit proved people are fed up with, and that Labour would overturn. So don’t let the establishment tell you this election is a foregone conclusion, there is a long way to go until polling day.
