Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is not enough to be right, a politician must persuade others that they are right, must make a case for doing the right thing. Be persuasive, not just to convince your friends but to nullify your enemies protests and thus win over the undecided.

Corbyn does not do these things. As TBG says, in a fast moving political environment he not only looks leaden footed, but his first response to challenge seems to be to go into a locked room with his friends and sulk.

God knows, I've supported Corbyn against the Blairites because to me their neutered Tory-friendly "effectiveness" is worse, but I'd drop him tomorrow if a better candidate came along

keep to the Fen Causeway
