An interesting article in the The Independent today illustrating ‘left-wing’ policy positions held by Jeremy Corbyn that perhaps have a majority public support. Many commentators over the last few weeks have suggest that Jeremy Corbyn becoming the leader of the Labour would be great for the Conservatives arguing that such an appointment would make the Labour party un-electable.
However I think such a position is coherent only if the continuation of the disillusionment with politics continues. It is interesting to consider how many of the policies listed in the The independent article people support but were offered no option to vote for at the last election. Often people suggest that voting makes no difference but, a Corbyn led Labour government would be a undeniable radical change from the last four governments.
Personally as a Green voter (in a safe Labour seat), I think a Corbyn led Labour party is far more likely to entice me than the other options.
