It appears that the Labour Party with Corbyn as its Leader is moving further and further to the left, soon it could be having a serious effect on the membership figures.
The normal member of the various unions are not socialists, they are just people who are trying to look out for themselves and not be taken for a ride by others. Soon these very members will rise up and take back control of the unions their forefathers started.
Michael Foot tried to take the Labour Party on a path towards the left and socialism, he didn’t succeed but rather the Party had a major defeat in a subsequent election.
When there were middle of the road Labour people like Blair and Brown (in his early years) who captured the imagination of the middle class voter they stood a better chance of winning elections, but if they are extremely left wing their chances are reduced.
With todays methods of instant mass communication the whole political scene is changing only a short while ago it was only the young who understood the social media, this has now changed and you even have pensioners with Facebook and twitter accounts. This means that they also have access to worldwide propaganda but with the experience of years they are more likely to query it.
Is it possible that out of this chaos will rise a new political party?
