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