Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That said, there will be no doubling down on right wing stupidity here, the next PM will be Corbyn. That will change the trajectory of the nation quite considerably.

Not sure how much it'll improve it though: Corbyn seems overly enamoured of solving problems from 1977 rather than 2017.

Meh, 2017 was what Varoufakis tried.
But realistically there can be no clean break brexit. So  I totally expect the EU to go back to their favourite hobby of pulling the wings off socialists when it is time to negotiate an extenseion to the extension of the temporary emergency aggreement.

nobody solved the problems of 77, they just pretended that thatcher made them all go away. How do you solve the problems of the UK? Start at the beginning; 77 is as good a place to start as any, better than many in fact.

And by the time you spend fifty years fixing the problems of the seventies you'll be just in time to start figuring out the  problems of 2017. I'm not sure the swarms of autonomous AIs in fusion powered  flying cars are going to be impressed.
