Is Corbyn big enough to avoid the big mistake of tribalism?

Posted on

So Jeremy Corbyn is leader of the Labour Party, again.

Last summer I very rapidly realised he had no idea why he wanted to be leader, and that became apparent to everyone all too obviously very soon afterwards.

This time I hope he has a better idea.

And I sincerely hope that his idea is inclusive of all on the left. That does not require it to embrace everyone who has at one time been in Labour. But if the change in politics that this country needs is to happen then to be tribal now, within and beyond Labour, would be a big mistake.

The big question is whether Corbyn's big enough to avoid that big mistake.
