”Corbyn is by no means the perfect character, and while his campaign has been strong, it has not been without its own blunders. Still, voters are beginning to realise that this is a choice between a person who endlessly changes her mind to benefit her career, and someone who, for the most part, has been on the right side of history for over 20 years.”
The writer takes his cues from the disgruntled scheming Blairites. Apart from the odd occasion, Corbyn has held two PMs to account at PMQs, doing it in a way that has made them look out of touch, snide and refusing to answer awkward questions. The political commentariat may prefer a more macho style, but for ordinary people, they can see who is championing their interests and who isn’t interested. Unlike during the EU referendum campaign (where Corbyn made over 120 speeches in favour of remain, but was ignored by the media), once the media have been forced to give him equal coverage, people have realised what a decent, intelligent person he is, with commonsense and a wish to make things better for everyone – especially the more disadvantaged, and a leader who listens rather than dictates, misleads or lies.
