Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Corbyn's test is to separate from the Tories (in contrast to Blair) and look reasonable (in contrast to the daily defamations in the corporate whore media), the goal being to leave the Tories in government as long as possible so they may really most sincerely hang themselves.  Let's face it, trying to be the government in the UK right now is like trying to pick up a turd by the clean end (BoJo has a delusional advantage here; he believes he IS the clean end.).  In the meantime, what is actually being lost?  Some EP seats?  Oh well.  Those MEPs are instant lame ducks, and whether Remainer or Brexiteer, they will look very silly trying to accomplish anything.  And after Brexit happens, both CHUD..er..CHUK and the Lib Dems will lose their distinctive issue and will return to their brilliant impersonation of a flounder flopping around too far from the water's edge.  Not a look calculated to attract voters, as the Lib Dems have proved for years.
