As defined by who wants it, Brexit is now a right-wing project. As a result of this, a majority of the electorate now supports Remain. The switch has been strongest among former Labour leavers: working class women, young people and ethnic minorities. As cultural xenophobia has blossomed on the right, the socially liberal majority of the working class have taken to their own cultural barricades.
If left unchanged, this dead strategy will for certain deny the party a general election victory.
Corbyn knows this but has wasted weeks refusing to draw the obvious conclusion. They refused, for ten crucial days, to implement a shadow cabinet decision to end Brexit talks with the Tories. Then, when Labour lost half its seats in the European parliament, they sprang into action to brief against Emily Thornberry and Keir Starmer, who had called for a change of strategy. Now the line is changing. But the price has been weeks of public disunity. The entire spectacle looks to the electorate like incompetence, machine politics and the absence of a moral centre.
For those of us who supported Corbyn from the first day of his leadership nomination, it is all the more galling because we know from experience that he is a competent, democratic and principled politician.

There were always numerous fractions lined up within Corbynism: the unions needed a party less addicted to privatisation and anti-union laws; welfare recipients were sick of the bullying state; anti-capitalists and environmentalists wanted radical action; plus there was the old, Stalinist wing of the movement, with its perennial obsessions: opposition to Trident, Nato and the EU. All these groups could be contained within a project of anti-austerity and democratisation.
Not all of them can be contained within an internationalist response to Brexit. And, as we are now finding out, not all of them are committed to democracy as a means of sorting out differences. Because the leadership has refused to address this problem, Labour is now polling consistently between 20 and 25 per cent. Corbyn himself has negative personal ratings off the scale of any previous opposition leader. If it were facing a disunited right, with the Brexit Party determined to split the little England vote, Labour could — even despite these dire numbers — hope to become the largest party after a snap election.
Instead, Farage is pursuing a strategy of electoral alliance with a Boris Johnson-led Tory party which could allow him to take down plus Labour MPs.

Thirty years ago, an utterly buckwild movie was released. Now, it being , this could be any movie, tbh. It was a weird time. But the movie I'm referring to is Chances Are. The film starred a practically fetal Robert Downey Jr. It is a romantic comedy-fantasy about incest. I don't know what else to tell you. This was one of my favorite movies as a child because I had a tiny baby crush on a tiny baby Robert Downey Jr. So, in honor of its anniversary, here's the Deja View this incesty dead guy rom-com deserves.
