His supporters now saying that EdM was a Tory
This looks set to be massive political week with Syria and, of course, on Thursday the first by-election of the 2015 parliament.
Just about everything in British politics is now looked at through the prism of the impact on Labour’s new leadership. Is Corbyn going to try to impose a whip on his party to oppose Syrian air-strikes and what happens to his party either way?
The by-election is looking tighter and tighter and at 5/2 on Betfair UKIP must be the value bet.
A big UKIP message in Oldham to LAB supporters is that a victory for them could help end Corbyn’s leadership. That could resonate and might encourage Labour stay-at-homes.
In the meantime the young LAB activist and former EdM loyalist, whose Oldham Tweets I reported in the previous thread, is being told that the former LAB leader is a Tory. The world’s gone mad
There’s some interesting Corbyn polling due.
