    Corbyn is too Far Left to be the leader of a major political party in an affluent European country. He comes from the part of the Far Left that turned the movement against European imperialism into an all encompassing ideology in the 1950s and 1960s with disastrous results for the Left and the newly freed countries. This is Fritz Fanon and Edward Said territory here. Its very good for making some intelligent insights but not really that much as a plank for a political party that needs to get things done. From what I’ve read Corbyn hasn’t really said anything about any real domestic issue effecting the United Kingdom. Its all about a non-interventionalist foreign policy. The equivalent would be if the Democratic nominee for President kept focusing on Vietnam and American intervention in Central and South America and the need to atone for foreign policy sins.Report
