Jeremy Corbyn: He's not the Messiah - he's a socialist.

Jeremy Corbyn: He’s not the Messiah – he’s a socialist.

I don’t have any pithy comment to add to this article – I simply think it is one that everybody interested in politics right now should read.

That is especially true of people like the Labour right-wingers mentioned in the recent Sunday Times article who claimed Jeremy Corbyn has been elevated to “Christ-like” status by his followers.

He hasn’t; here are just a few of the reasons; read, learn, keep it handy for the next time you hear anyone spouting the same blather.

An extract from the Sunday Times in which anti-Corbyn MPs allegedly refer to Corbyn supporters as “faith based followers”who are “off the page nuts” because we look upon Corbyn as a “Christ-like figure” is doing the rounds on social media, and I’d like to share my thoughts about it.

Firstly, any MP who made these remarks should have the courage of their convictions and put their name to them. Not to do so is weak and cowardly. Though I can understand why they wouldn’t want to, and I’m not talking about fear of reprisals from Corbyn’s backers.

These remarks say a lot more about the MPs who made them than they do about Corbyn’s supporters, and they should be ashamed of themselves for making them, or even thinking them.

Of course a journalist may have made it up, except we all know anti-Corbyn MPs hold us in contempt so I am going to give the journalist the benefit of the doubt and treat it as truth.
And staying on the subject of truths, any MP who dismisses our movement as a cult, with Corbyn as a Christ-like figure at its head, is either blind to some fundamental truths, in denial over their own failings or both. So let me have a stab at enlightening them.
