Today (12th September) marks the first anniversary of Jeremy Corbyn's accession to the leadership of the Labour Party. Whatever your views of Comrade Corbyn, and we've all heard the jokes that he's attempting to turn the Labour Party into the political wing of TUST, his elevation has shaken up British politics and made it worth discussing again. From the days of interchangable leaders such as Miliband, Clegg and Cameron, there are now at least a few different ideas kicking around. Labour's Blairite parliamentary party, with little if anything in common with the Party's rank and file membership in the constituencies, seems set to guarantee us fun and games for a good while yet.
In the mean time Chairman May can get on unhindered as she attends to the important stuff of freeing us from the shackles of the dictatorial E.U and providing some long overdue decent schooling for our youngsters, giving them an alternative to the indoctrination centres that have served our kids so poorly for many a decade.
The world stage is no less exciting. Hilary's health issues have been a major talking point everywhere for many a month, everywhere that is.... except the mainstream media !!!. Unable to hide the blatantly obvious any longer they're hoping that the hand rails, unsteadiness, and now yesterday's collapse, can be fobbed off as 'pneumonia'.
But today is a time to mark Comrade Corbyn's first 12 months, and to wish him every success in purging his enemies from the Party during the coming year, while thanking him for adding some badly needed interest to Britain's sterile political scene.
