Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The Guardian's Blairite journalists have been utterly horrified by Corbyn and have never missed an opportunity to remind everybody of the disaster that will befall the Labour party at the enxt election. I can't remember every flight of hyperbole they itemed as certain to happen, but I'm pretty sure that slaughter of the first born was probably the least of them. And that was during the first election immediately after the 2015 Milipede loss.

Ever since then, they have gathered their knitting and clacked and cackled away in front of the tumbrils the better to enjoy their front row seat at that day of certain doom. Well, it's all going horribly wrong for them and Polly Toynbee, Jonathan Freedland and several others had better be really, really quiet for a few months after this election.
