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

No, Corbyn is not asleep at the wheel. Not that I can see anyway.

However, he does see brexit as a done deal; he is still leading an opposition party and cannot neither stop nor even influence brexit. So, to his mind there is little to be gained by promoting it and a lot to be lost by openly opposing it.

He is keeping his powder dry. He was personally mocked and declared irrelevant, yet from being a million miles behind in the polls, he nearly beat May in the last General Election. With the precariat and general conditions ofr people only getting much worse much more quickly and a far right nexus between Boris and Farage in the offing, I'm sure tht the next election campaign wil be fought over the heads of the media.

I notice that my age roup are easily caught up in FB manias, but increasingly evidence emerges that under 30s are less impressed. Especially as climate emergency is becoming to anybody willing to look. Reality seems to be outpacing the ability of billionaires to hide the evidence.
