Will it herald a new beginning of the old labour values, or will Labour become hoisted by it's own petard?

Well nobody looks confident enough to feel that they have it in the bag, are we to return to the age of donkey jacket opposition?

"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.)

Corbyn, if elected, will turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to the Tories.

The word on the street is for a Corbyn win outright in the first round.

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.

The announcement programme is more entertaining than a Saturday night talent show...

Nearly 60%, interesting times ahead...

Excellent result

.....for the Tories.

Corbyn will be an unmitigated disaster as far as the Labour party is concerned, and I doubt if it will take long for that to become apparent.

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.
