....I am now disillusioned with Labour under Corbyn. Albeit for very different reasons. Corbyn might never invade Iraq, but he has lurched from one anti-semitism scandal to another. That would have been unthinkable under any previous Labour leader. Labour and Momentum's clear issues with anti-semitism make it increasingly difficult for Labour to oppose bigotry with much credibility.

Labour has veered from one extreme to another without ever pausing to try and strike a happy medium. A situation that is not helped by the various internal factions, who seem far more interested in fighting each other than fighting for the common good.
