Is Corbyn part of the same syndrome? Is the British Left?

The tragic irony is that the UK is pretty good at a number of things, including science, engineering, the arts, sport, law, and entertainment. Not all of this is because English has favoured language status around the world - originally because of the Empire, now because of the US.

But we've never shaken off the perception of post-imperial mediocrity. And we've been electing the politicians to prove it.

I suspect this may do more to explain the bizarre allure of Brexit than even the neo-feudal effects of neoliberalism.
