I am old enough to have lived through many political crisis, but I am not sure any have affected me as dramatically as the events of this week. Watching senior members of the (former) Labour Party weep, is bringing about a fair bit of weeping in myself. Mostly for believing that that shower of turncoats destroying the Labour Party were ever in politics for anything other than themselves.
Those baying for the blood of Jeremy Corbyn stood alongside those baying for the blood of society's most vulnerable. They are blind to the queues at the food banks, and the homeless sleeping on our streets, and they are blind to the consequences of their lack of investment in our future generations. Can they not see the destruction of our towns and communities? Once thriving high streets are now wastelands, and not because of the immigrants - they happen to be the only ones brave enough to start up new businesses, but because we, the people, are having to pay off some mythical debt run up by greedy bankers who threw the dice once too often.
For the first time in decades, Jeremy Corbyn is offering us something new. He has inspired hundreds of thousands to join the Labour party as members. Even old cynics such as I, have dared to peep above the parapet to offer my unwavering support. Not one of the contenders the PLP have to offer, could draw a fraction of the crowds that turn out to support Jeremy Corbyn. Could chief back stabber Angela Eagle fill arenas - she hasn't even got the support of her own constituency
Jeremy Corbyn is the only anti austerity Labour Leader we have, or are ever likely to get, especially with so many Labour MPs now revealing their true colours. He is the only Leader who will set to work on improving the lives of the many, not just the few. He is the only Leader who actually cares about the horrors being inflicted on the people of this country by a greedy minority determined to preserve the status quo. That's why the people love him.
If the tories vote for Boris, then the only way to beat them in a General Election is to present a Leader more popular with the people than Boris, and the reality is, the only one who can beat Boris, is Jeremy. How are the plotters, schemers and conspirators not aware of that?
