Corbyn has been drawing 1,000-strong crowds in ex-mining communities
. . .
Saturday night was, according to the organisers, the biggest political rally in the Welsh Valleys for 20 years. It was a huge event, not just for Aberdare. The story, ignored by much of the media, is that Jeremy Corbyn has become a cross between a rock star and a saint.
. . .
A group of three girls aged 13 and 14 were jumping up and down at having met Jeremy Corbyn. They’d never been to a political event before but were glowing with excitement and vowing to get involved with politics from now on. I asked why they were quite so excited and one girl told me she thought he was clever and genuine and said: ‘Even though we’re young, he stands up for us too.’
An open letter to Jeremy Corbyn on child abuse

As you know, for decades there was widespread child sexual abuse taking place in the London Borough of Islington.

Your inaction in the 1980s and 1990s says a lot . . .

Corbyn’s silence over child abuse in Islington is typical of how he picks and chooses his causes
. . .
No doubt, one reason why Corbyn failed to speak out more vocally about child abuse in Islington was because his local Labour colleagues were implicated in the scandal
. . .
. . . a hard left council that in the words of the journalist who broke the story “facilitated the abuse by employing known paedophiles and brazenly attempting to cover it up, shredding crucial documents, dismissing media reports about the scandal as ‘gutter journalism’, accusing staff who raised concerns of racism and homophobia, and hounding whistleblowers out of their jobs.”
The Corbyn campaign is highly organised. Huge resources are being put into it.
The aim is to put a politician with a history of ignoring organised child rape into power.

If it was the eighties I'd understand Corbyns popularity (does this reflect where we are up to as a nation?), but I think he is a giant twerp.
Never has the Labour party been so irrelevant.
Some say that he's a plant, sent to destroy the party from within.
I've never liked Cameron or the Tories but as long as Corbyn is in charge there will be no effective opposition.
