"Dead politician walking" or what?

Corbyn’s comments to the leftwing newspaper are unlikely to win him any admirers in an already largely hostile press. In particular, his words are likely to be interpreted as a challenge to Rupert Murdoch’s News UK which with the Sun and the Times dominates the UK’s print newspaper market.
The Sun was forced earlier this week to print a correction trailed on its front page over a story that falsely claimed Corbyn was preparing to join the privy council to secure £6.2m in so called “Short money” for Labour. In fact the funding is based on the number of MPs a party has, and has nothing to do with the leader of the opposition’s status.
Corbyn told the Star that he felt the press had covered his leadership and focus on a “new politics” unfairly.
He said: “I think the media’s attitude towards the Labour party and our campaign has been horrendous.

He was on borrowed time before they counted his leadership votes

It's terrible what happens when a party lets the rank and file vote for the leadership.

Can't have that Peter, you might have a popular government that serves it's citizens rather than one which serves it's financiers. Next thing you know they'll be asking for democracy, or (blanch) real representative government.

The UK press is almost consistently anti Labour.
Unfortunately for Labour Corbyn is old Labour from about 40 years ago and has Not learned any thing in the intervening years.
However I fully expect there to be another leader selected in the run up to the next election.

Which they will, barring a miracle, lose.

South of the Scottish border everything left of G. Khan is in total disarray, and is unlikely to see a way forward this side of 2025.

Corbyn is playing the role of M. Foot.

Their potential for success depends on how objectionable Bumnose makes the Tories.
Politically Jeremy Foot are from the same mould, cast at the same time.
