"are we to return to the age of donkey jacket opposition?"
One man, just one, in the whole history of the Labour Party.
I never saw Clem Attlee, Ernie Bevin, Nye Mevan or Keir Hardie without a tie, unlike our present PM.
I'm more right wing than Margaret if anything, but I hope that Corbyn will enliven British politics as he has done for Labour politics.
Cameron may be about to face some real opposition for the first time in his life, and I suspect (and hope!) that it will show.
(No, don't quote SNP stalwarts at me. I might not be a Scot but I've lived here for half a century and I know the reality. Cameron could dissolve Holyrood tomorrow if he had a mind to, difficult, but he could. Accep[t it.)
Whoever wins, give them a few months, and see if things have changed in the Labour Party camp.
Because I strongly suspect, it will be the same as previously, plenty of talk but very little action that will please the voting public!.
Around my neck of the woods, Labour seems to make some rather disturbing comments about how national and local government should work. But it all ends up in a power struggle and internal arguments for a few member's who want to be boss.
Some of Corbyns supporters have been talking about purging Blairites who they see as traiters to Socialist purity and anybody who dared say anything negative about their Dear Leader, it will be interesting to see if Jeremy controls the lunatic fringe or indulges them.
