Blame The Blairites, Not Corbyn, For This Mess
We have one shot, admittedly long, at getting the working class back behind Labour, and it's Corbyn, not the Blairities. Let's get behind him.
Blairites are predictably blaming Corbyn, but it was they who created this mess by disregarding the working class.
I fear the alternative to working people getting behind an authentically left-wing party that they can see fights for them is that they'll feel increasingly marginalised and will eventually slide in desperation into fascism.
A shiny, Tory-lite Blairite like Dan Jarvis would be the worst possible choice at this time.
PS Corbyn delivered 63% of Labour voters for Remain. Sturgeon delivered 64% of SNP. So remind me again why Corbyn is to blame, but not Sturgeon?
Note also that even the super-Euro-friendly Lib Dems only managed 70% Remain.
