Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

How important is McDonald to Corbyn? How unreconstructed is his Marxism? Is it academic-theoretical or straight-out Pinko mania?
Is there a plan B?
Going up against pretty much everything since the Enclosure of the Commons, the Hyper-Sanctity of Private Property and Inherited Wealth with only the gentlemanly arts of political persuasion subbing for battalions will be rough road.
Still better than this chute to perdition for most, but no easy sell to the 1%'s willing minions, the chattering classes or furriner-blaming troglodytes for that matter.
I suspect Jez may not be au courant of the latest in MET, Varoufakis and the like. Hope I'm wrong and he'said been lurking here at ET for years!
Probably the common thread in all Corbyn voters is, in this era of a shrinking pie, is simply that the slices should be cut more fairly.

Simple is the opposite of easy.

What I know is that McDonnell is in good terms with Yanis Varoufakis and is close to DiEM25.

Then Corbyn should get him out front and centre and start the (long) job of educating the voting public that There Is An Alternative.

Is there a Plan B?

Right now, I'm not convinced there's a Plan A yet
