It’s amazing, and highly amusing tolisten to Labour leaders Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell trying to wriggle out of admitting that their party lost the election because they have completely forsaken their working class roots. Bizarrely their supporters are equally deluded, looking around the online comment threads I see many people claiming the Conservatives won because Labour’s manifesto was not left wing enough.
Can’t anyone in that crazy party understand the working class are not left wing, they don’t want globalism and multiculturalism, they don’t want state control of everything and they certainly don’t want Oxbridge educated human rights lawyers who once read a book about working class people representing their interests in government.
For me the reason Labour lost is best summed up in a one liner delivered by a Brummie voter who described Jeremy Corbyn thus:
“a snotty Islington weirdo who hates Britain like the vegans hate Sunday roasts”.
