Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Great comment, Helen.
A client was somewhat vituperatively dismissive of Jez yesterday, for his 'unelectability'.
This counting on the electorate to be able only to elect mediagenic puppets is disproved by the astonishing recent increase in party registration.
It also reeks of age-ist condescension.
It's a blind spot a mile wide.
Yes there are a lot of easily swayed idiot voters, as Brexit proved, but Corbyn is not promising the moon or using any base tactics to garner voters.  

By just serenely holding firm under the slings and arrows he lets his opponents reveal their mean-spiritedness.
