‘a programme of rallies and publications, leaflets and conferences to be drawn’
This is, to some extent, all the hard left really want to do. Analyse, navel gaze, complain, write about how they're so clever and preach to the choir.

Which is precisely why Corbyn's seemingly well attended rallies never translated into votes. Yes, he could get a good crowd who were keen to hear him regurgitate the greatest hits. But they were the only people who he was ever going to get, and they were a drop in the ocean in the bigger picture - not a sign he was a beloved man of the people.

I look forward to the version of Oh Jeremy Corbyn played forlornly on a military bugle.

When Tony Benn was asked what his chances were of winning he replied: ‘It depends what you mean by winning’

Priceless!
I believe it was an argument used by the Corbyn faction, m'lud.

Tony Benn's reputation wouldn't exactly have been enhanced if he'd lived to play an active part in the Brexit Referendum, would it?

Had Labour narrowly won the 1992 election, as many expected them to, Kinnock would have had an even larger bunch of headbangers to deal with than Major did. 60 odd MPs couldn't even abstain on the Maastricht Treaty (John Smith's position, which allowed the treaty to be ratified despite their strong opposition to Major's social chapter opt out).
