I think the comedians' problem with Corbyn is that he's taken away their reasons for being. How can you satirise somebody who is already a walking parody of the stereotypical Student Union socialist? They'd have to go down a darker, less amusing road. He could always be depicted surrounded by the skeletons of the victims of IRA, Hizbollah and Hamas atrocities. Accurate, but hardly comical. Comedians want you to laugh at the objects of their satire, not hate them.

With the caveat that I don't know anything about the reliability of Ukrainian polling.



Jez is less fettered these days than when he was leader. Wonder how some of his new fans would take him popping up to say Ukraine can't do this because blah blah George Bush said blah, and Russia mustn't feel encircled.

It won't happen, but it would be hilarious if the only mention of Jeremy in this book was in the context of what a terrible boyfriend he'd been.

Elsewhere on the interwebs I see Corbynbots complaining how John Hume was lauded for speaking to the IRA & Sinn Fein at the height of the Troubles, yet their Dear Leader was chastised for doing the same.

I really should not need to point out the massive differences between the two to tell how Corbyn should not even be mentioned in the same breath as Hume. :roll:

Indeed.

Differences like Hume having opposed Sinn Fein for donkeys years at close quarters. And actually knowing about Northern Ireland so he could sense when the time was right to work with Adams.

Anyone know what the Brexit policy of this hypothetical government would have been? How would they have got the Greens, Plaid, SNP and Lib Dems to vote for leaving the Single Market? All right, they might have got Norman Lamb at the outside, but who else?

Doubtless, there was some brilliant solution that everybody else has missed.

Listen, you don't win the Nobel Peace Prize and single-handedly bring about peace in Northern Ireland without knowing enough tricks to outfox those cunning Centrist Limp Dems.
