Here’s a great article from a mainstream media source – asking questions some of us in the social media have been putting forward for many weeks, now.
So, let’s get this straight. Jeremy Corbyn shouldn’t be leader of the Labour party because people won’t vote for him.
So why does it seem like he’s about to win his second leadership election in a year?
It appears that lots of people do want to vote for him, with huge numbers joining the party, which now stands at more than half a million.
So, then they say that, while Jeremy Corbyn may appeal to Labour voters, he doesn’t attract those from outside the party.
Why then are new members, who have previously posted on social media about supporting other parties, having their Labour membership applications rejected?
Surely the whole point of political campaigning is to win people over who either didn’t vote last time or voted for another party.
How else does Labour think it can win without getting more votes, and ideally more members?
Or, if they’d previously voted Conservative, would that be OK and it’s just the Green Party that’s the enemy?
Every time those in Labour try to suggest that Corbyn is unelectable or that the people who support him are in some way fanatics, all they are really doing is damaging the party they claim to love.
