Corbyn’s critics… May 11, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Prospect magazine was quick off the bat in relation to the UK local and other elections. Under the heading ‘Labour is losing ground’ it had a couple of pieces. One written in advance of those events by Neil Kinnock which sounded worryingly bilious. And another from Jamie Reed, LP MP for Copeland who writes:
Yesterday, Labour went backwards in England, Scotland and Wales. Today, senior Labour figures are claiming that because these reverses are not as bad as many predicted, they somehow represent a vindication of the chaos that has engulfed the Party since the leadership election. It’s time to get real.
Whoever became Leader of the Labour Party in September 2015 was bound to be presented with a difficult task. Jeremy Corbyn’s handsome victory did not make this task necessarily any more or less tough. That said, the political judgments, operations and priorities demonstrated in the intervening period since the leadership contest have indeed made this task more difficult. Subjectively and objectively, there can be no doubt about this.
On 12 September 2015, one minute into Jeremy Corbyn’s acceptance speech as leader of the Labour Party, he publicly resigned as shadow Health Minister giving as his reason Corbyn’s opposition to nuclear energy.
Well I never.
