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

Given the relentless media and Blairite attacks on Corbyn since the moment he was elected it's no surprise his ratings are poor.

However, everybody knows that the media got a bloody nose during the last election when they predicted a drubbing for Labour and instead saw their vote increase markedly.

Fact is, polling companies are not responding well to changes in the demographic and are probably mssing the big story. There probably won't be another general election till 2022, which gives TIG and their backers plenty of opportunity to make mischief. But it also gives the fallout from Brexit plenty of time to work its way through the country.

the next election may not be quite the reckoning the media hope for
