I don't see Labour winning anything in the near future.

Even when Corbyn first won the leadership election, he was unlikely to be Prime Minister. He doesn't have that sort of personality to be a modern leader, but it was much to be hoped that he would put forward a set of policy initiavies that would cement the move of Labour away from slavish neo-conservative economic policies.

Sadly, Corbyn has not stepped up his game; he is by nature a protester and a quiet worker behind the scenes when what was needed was somebody who could seize the PLP by the scruff of the neck and bring them to his bidding. However, he is more noted for absence than presence. Even the policy ideas have failed to materialise. If there is an alternative Labour vision of Britain post-Brexit, even in outline, then so far he has failed to let anybody know what it might look like.

And fialing that, Labour will continue to come second. Good grief, even the Lib Dems have more idea of who they are right now.

Britain needs a new conservative set of ideas to combat a near 4 decades record of utter failure. Labour needs a new leader, Corbyn has failed.
