If he'd sung the national anthem he'd have been called a hypocrite. As it is he chose not to and he's accused of "snubbing the Queen". Can't win, can he?|
Matthew Parris says he expects the Labour party to split and the Tories to split soon after- with the Blairites in both parties getting together to form a party of their own- because they have more in common with one another than with the purists of left and right. So then we'd have three main parties- a socialist party, a party of reaction (of the kind that might please Peter Hitchens) and a party of the so-called "middle-ground". It would be a more honest arrangement than the one we have at present.
I don't suppose Corbyn will ever be Prime Minister, but I'm hoping he's going to serve as the catalyst for political change.
