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

I try to avoid getting into the personality side of things, but after Matthew Parris' character assassination of May your look at the dilemmas facing Corbyn is worthy of a separate diary and discussion. I do think he is in an invidious position: his job is to oppose and present an alternative strategy, but all the Media and chattering classes want him to do is bail May (and the Country) out.  For him to bail May out is political self-immolation, for him to bail the country out (a near impossibility for an opposition leader) he must time his intervention perfectly and gain the support of a mixed bag of political ne'er do wells who can't be relied on to do anything right.

Ultimately, the situation is outside his control, he can but hope that an opportunity arises before a no deal Brexit becomes a reality.
