Nick Cohen continues with his impotent flailing about Corbyn in the Spectator. While some of what he says is correct, no one is really taking his points on board – people are by and large pretty stupid anyway and don’t care to engage their brains. I don’t think there is or ever has been a “true left” however, and his running bleating to the scum Tories is pretty pathetic.
I did like this quote though

There are times when this underworld emerges from the depths and suddenly fascinates, captures and dominates multitudes of usually sane and responsible people.
Pretty much describes our entire culture
