Jeremy Corbyn Elected Leader – British Labour really is “Lunatic Left”
In 2020 general elections, will Britain surrender to Islamism, Isolation and Socialism?
As expected, Jeremy Corbyn was just elected Leader of the British Labour Party.
To describe him as “far left” would be unfair … to the far left. He’s basically an economic and political lunatic.
Even The NY Times described Corbyn in stark terms, With Jeremy Corbyn Elected as New Leader, Britain’s Labour Party Takes a Hard Left Turn:
Britain’s opposition Labour Party on Saturday took a remarkable leftward turn, electing as its leader Jeremy Corbyn, a longtime socialist committed to nationalizing key industries, scrapping Britain’s nuclear missile system and reversing the centrist policies of previous leaders such as Tony Blair.
The result of the contest, announced on Saturday morning in London, gave stewardship of the Labour party to the hard left for the first time in more than three decades, a development seen here as one of the most surprising upsets in modern British politics.
This neat video from Sky News lists Corbyn’s economic goals:
Politically, Corbyn comes from the vicious strain of left-wing European politics that views surrender to Islamism as the highest expression of political correctness, and which couches its anti-Semitism in the rhetoric of anti-Zionism and anti-Israelism.
We explored Corbyn’s sick associations in Likely British Labour leader’s creepy associations:
The Daily Mail sums up Corbyn:
Jeremy Corbyn is the most radical Labour leader in the party’s history.
The veteran left-winger does not merely advocate a return to 1970s-style socialism, the re-opening of the mines and nationalisation of all public utilities.
Mr Corbyn also opposes Nato, Britain’s nuclear deterrent and any controls on immigration.
He refused to support the Falklands War, backed the right of Iraqi insurgents to target British troops and, more recently, has defended Vladimir Putin, ISIS and Palestinian terrorists.
His views are so hard-line he even split with his second wife because she refused to send her child to the failing local state school in his constituency.
Michael Foot, who led the Labour party to its worst post war defeat in 1983, was never so far from public opinion – even supporting Margaret Thatcher’s re-taking of the Falkland Islands in 1982.
There is very good news in this story, nonetheless.
With Corbyn at the lead, Labour almost certainly will get an even more severe drubbing at the polls in 2020 than it did in 2015. Ex-Brit Charles Cooke writes:
Let’s be clear: This is an absolute disaster for progressive politics in Britain. A disaster. In the last forty years, the Labour Party has won only three elections, all of them under the leadership of the moderate Tony Blair. Blair’s key insight into the British public was that it would tolerate a certain amount of government intrusion, but that overtly socialistic parties would be destroyed at the polls — “annihilated” in his memorable words. That having learned this lesson Labour has seen fit to choose a leader who is to the left of Michael Foot defies all belief….
How sweetly the Conservative party will sleep tonight.
Please don’t compare Corbyn to Bernie Sanders:
For all those making Bernie Sanders/Jeremy Corbyn comparisons – Sanders is much more mainstream

@JonahNRO Oh, no, Jonah, Corbyn is on the other side, civilizationally. Sanders doesn't love Hamas, for instance. He's just an old hippie.

Let me get this right, @jeremycorbyn. You'll talk to Holocaust deniers, IRA men and Hezbollah, but you won't talk to The Sun "on principle"?

These are not terrorist supporters. These are white guilt socialist cowards who think if they feed the crocodiles enough, they crocodiles will eat them last.
A frog-fur fine distinction without any functional difference.
And Twitter is exploding as labor splits down the middle.
Any bets on how many “labor” party members are going to defect to the Conservatives, the Unionists or the Greens?
Maybe I don’t understand British politics well enough but why would someone defect because Labor is going hard-left and join the Greens? It sounds more likely that the Green party would disband and join Labor now.
Very few will defect to the Tories. In many cases the class antipathy is too deep. Depending upon where they are from, I do suspect some may defect to the various Nationalist parties. A lot of Scots Labourites have to be wondering if the SNP gains were a one time thing or if the political landscape in Scotland has shifted for the enforceable future.
It’s all good when your enemy is committing suicide. Don’t stop them
There are supposed to be tens of thousands of people marching in London to demand the importation of a great mass of “refugees” (real or otherwise) who would happily vote for the likes of Corbyn.
Unfortunately, it is a murder-suicide pact. Also, that one thumbs down is a miss hit on the reply on this iPad.. As everyone knows, it is the internal decay that ends a nation state sooner than outside forces. We see the arrogance that nothing can possibly go wrong with “good intentions”.
I thought this story was “good news” until I got to the “good news” part. I’m desperately hoping that one European country or another will self-destruct because of unrestrained Muslim immigration in order to provide a lesson for those here asleep at the switch (or I should say, “asleep at the border”). I’d rather it happen somewhere else first, so that we’re not the country providing the object lesson to the rest of the West.
Amen, and amen.
Labor got what they wished for. First after spending the past couple of decades encouraging national identity politics in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Cornwall, etc. they lost almost all the seats in left leaning Scotland to the SNP. At the same time, English and Welsh voters who once held blue collar jobs finally figured out Labour’s new coalition of urban elite and immigrants vanquished them from a place at the economic and political table. Working class white support for UKIP tipped several more seats in the Midlands, Wales and Cornwall to the Tories.
Now Labour is doubling down on its support among the academic left and the urban bo-bos- classes which usually have more money than common sense.
How many times has it occurred that what started out as the lunatic left, quickly becomes the narrative and what everyone must follow. If you can’t tell this trend I have a cake you have to bake, a verse you must recite to get a good grade, a stable ME country you should visit…
Moving the Overton window.
BWAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA…(draws on good cigar)…HAHAHAHAHA
I think I’d excuse Trump’s non-recognition of Jeremy Corbyn before I’d excuse Trump’s finding it plausible that his own candidacy would inspire a senior citizen to cast his first-ever vote.
When you an infantile generation of voters, they come up with ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ as a president.
When you have an infantile generation of voters from Britain, they come up with this idiot.
Never mind that Trump supporters have so much in common with the silly sixteen year old girl who thinks she is going to get even with everybody by sleeping with the biggest jerk she can find.
