Yes this is a epochal moment in British politics far more important than the last general election unless you view it as the continuation of that argument .
It appears possible that Corbyn will win on first preferences which will produce a Parliamentary Party in which no more than 12 were not vehemently opposed to their leader. That situation cannot continue, either the PLP to shift rapidly in an accomodation with their own constituencies ( and lose any shred of relevance ) or Corbyn will have to go
Its hard for someone like me, who has been used to issues and credible policies being the subject to understand this new "trending " style of selfy voting , it looks like a form of madness .

Paul, your argument here is fragile. This is the first time in 30 years that there has been a politician who is standing up for everyone, voicing what many have been thinking, and if it causes a rift in the Labour party it has been well overdue, because the infiltrators form the right need pushing out. Centre politics has been tried an dhas failed, alienating the many low paid workers of Britain and upholding the rich through tax evasion. It's time Corbyn sorted it all out and reclaimed the name "Labour".

I wonder if the typical Lewes lefty actually doesn't like the idea of having to make decisions and take responsibility for the consequences , after all for years that was the only function of the Liberal Party.
I wonder if the idea of being all radical and "principled" whilst real decisions are made by a a sort of proxy parent ( The Conservative Party) isn`t exactly what this kidult mind craves.

Keep the insults coming. Far better than having to consider whether those with principles might actually have a point.
