This is what some of us are really fighting.
In advance of an expected win by Jeremy Corbyn in the Labour leadership election, BBC1’s The One Show put former Tory MP Giles Brandreth on the streets of… Guildford, I think… where he asked passers-by if they supported certain political policies.
Those who did (at least, those shown on the programme) were then shocked to discover that they were supporters of Mr Corbyn’s policies.
And what did they do?
They backed away, that’s what. Did everything they could to distance themselves from him. It was the biggest display of stupidity This Writer has seen since the result of the general election.
They support the man’s policies. Nobody else is going to enact them. So how do they think those policies are going to come into being if they don’t support the man himself?
Until enough people realise that, the only change we’ll be seeing is for the worse.
