While Paris Gourtsoyannis makes the same mistake as all too many commentators in assuming that a pact with the SNP is British Labour’s for the asking, it’s good to see somebody offering a realistic appraisal of Corbyn’s prospects in the 2020 UK election. Basically, British Labour needs to win scores of safe Tory seats. Some will insist glibly that ‘nothing’s impossible’. But, here in the real world, some things are as close to being impossible as makes no practical difference.
Ask yourself! Does British Labour look remotely like a party prepared for a task of this magnitude?
It’s far too big a gamble for Scotland. British Labour’s branch office will doubtless return to the tactic of portraying themselves as the only ‘party’ that can stop the Tories; despite this claim having long since been drained of the last dregs of credibility by repeated failure to even effectively oppose the Tories electorally or in terms of their economically destructive and socially corrosive policies.
We can’t afford to have yet another Tory government imposed on Scotland. We can’t afford the union. We certainly can’t rely on British Labour. So let’s not get carried away with the personality cult building around Jeremy Corbyn. He offers precious little hope to progressives in England. He holds out no hope whatever for Scotland.Views: 2420
