Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
He's always been a crypto-whatever-you're-supposed-to-hate. That's the magic of Corbyn. He's Emmanuel Goldstein in a cycle helmet.

After years of media smears absolutely everyone is convinced he's not just not on their side, he's practically the worst person in the whole of British history - simultaneously a comically bumbling impotent nobody and a master plotter casting a terrifying shadow over British politics from his evil allotment lair in darkest Islington.

His allotment veggies are shit, too. If ever invited to dinner at the Corbyns', make some excuse.

It would be interesting, though, to know if he now thinks Remain is a fitting ending to the Brexit saga, or if he hopes to wangle some form of Leave.

Not that this is the biggest problem the UK and Europe face, not by a long chalk.

Corbyn has stated that he wants to negotiate the best possible exit from the EU and then have a referendum to let the people decide between that plan and remain. He would then support the outcome either way. Most of Labour now seems for Remain.
