They used to blame the “plotters” – maybe they should look at their own hapless leadership
Until September 24th the red team’s leadership had a ready made excuse whenever terrible polling numbers came out – it was all the fault of the MP plotters who had launched the confidence move against Corbyn in the aftermath of the referendum.
Well Corbyn got re-elected in September and the LAB’s polling position is still appalling and miles behind where the lead opposition party should be if it is to have any chance whatsoever at a general election.
Today we’ve got two new Westminster polls out and the numbers are very much the same. LAB is in the 20s while CON is in the 40s.
Corbyn doesn’t seem to have desire or expertise to resonate with ordinary voters. He only seems to care about true believers. He appears happiest at rallies when he is enthralling the faithful. His main aides, John McDonnell and PR man Seamus Milne are no better just part of the irrelevance. This is all about controlling the party without having any regard to the country.
It is if they have already given up on the general election.
For sure Labour has got a lot of members but they are of no use whatsoever unless they are ready to help the party become an efficient election machine.
This has created a vacuum in British politics. They tell me that nature abhors vacuums. We’ll see.
