Feeble

There's a crisis in the NHS and the Labour party should be all over it- giving the government a really hard time. And it's not. If Labour can't stand up- loud and proud- for the NHS- which is its creation and close to the heart of what it's supposed to be all about- then what on earth is it for?

Instead Corbyn has been banging on about a wage cap for the very rich- a noble cause- but not- right now- a burning issue. It's like there's a  World Cup match in progress and everyone is glued to their sets and Corbyn is out in the yard bouncing a ball against the wall and going, "Look at me, Ma,  I just scored again!"

I supported Corbyn. I like and admire him. I don't think Labour's current feebleness is all his fault. Not at all. But wouldn't it be nice to have an opposition that- well- did some opposing?
