I really do love this:
The MPs in question were elected by their constituents to undertake a role, whether in government or opposition, in parliament. I sincerely hope they recall that and appreciate that it will be their duty to form an opposition in the event that Corbyn wins. The country needs an effective opposition, and Corbyn cannot supply it, so they have to act.
I make clear that this does not necessarily mean that I will like or support all the policy positions they will adopt and I will be more than happy to say so if that is the case. But this does create the possibility of there being a Porgressive Alliance that might really transform UK politics for the very large number who feel utterly unrepresented now. And if that was to be the outcome – as electorally I suspect those MPs would realise it would need to be – in anticipation of which they should be looking to form a coalition in opposition before the next general election – then I think the prospect of something that could really transform UK politics exists, whether John McDonnell likes it or not.
All the nutjobs that support the Curajus State are off behind Corbyn. The realists, the rationalists, in the PLP who will form that Progressive Alliance aren’t going to touch his fascism with a bargepole.
