Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Guardian, with the rest of the UK press, is still running an unprecedented anti-Corbyn smear and fear campaign.

It's even worse on social media where there's an organised campaign to peel off Corbyn supporters from Remain to the LibDems and give Farage a clear victory.

The reality is that the LDs are more interested in stopping Labour than they are in stopping Farage. They'll happily take second place in the elections even if it means a clear majority for Farage.

The only upside I can see is that if Farage wins - likely - he'll run his own MPs in a GE.

At best this will split the far-right vote and create big problems for the Tories. At worst it will give a combined Brexit/Tory party enough of a majority to force No Deal through.

Personally I am appalled by the venal self-serving stupidity of CHUK and the LibDems, and even more appalled by the stupidity of Remain voters who can't see how easily they're being played here.
