Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's that (yawn), and the more prosaic truths: (1) SF is isolated in IE/NI and doesn't sit in parliament; (2) Labour has no purchase in NI (or Scotland); (3) Corbyn is 30 years older than that dalliance, as is everyone else not "diaspora" in Britain which is indifferent to--dare I say ignorant about--gang rivalries on the little island. More bluntly, he doesn't need SF any more that HRM BoJo needs Farage to achieve their desired results.

What are their desired results? For the hide-bound observer, to each his own mere capture of PM chair. As for hypothetical domestic legislative agenda ("policy") onto which redundant MPs will glom while they canvass, deregulation/devolution (BoJo), centralized/majoritarian "reform" (Corbyn). Semi-refined ideological conflicts with occasional "Trumpian" augurs served by columnists are canards. Both support secession from the EU as a means to obtaining his paramount goal.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
