What do you say to all those promises that Cohen lists at the start of his article? Mobilising non-voters, winning back Scotland etc? Is that all the right-wing media? Is that all the right wing media?
I say he failed on all counts, and pretty much all of it is down to him. But when he failed on Brexit, the PLP came along and gave him a helping hand. Most recently, when he failed in Copeland, along came Blair and provided the excuse. The membership rally behind him because he's under attack from the people they dislike most.
Did you read the article and the context for that phrase.
I read the entire piece, it's an odious piece of work, much like its author. It consists of nothing more than apportioning blame, saying "I told you so", and expecting a pat on the back of it. Which, to be fair, is par for the course on a RAWK-like internet forum, but I'd expect better from a newspaper such as the Observer. Claiming it's some sort of scream for help is way off the mark. The article reeks of self-righteousness and self-satisfaction, and I'm pretty sure the author very much enjoyed writing it.
The responses from Corbyn supporters in the comments under the article, in this forum and on Twitter suggest that nothing will get through.
I didn't read the comments under the article, and I'm not on Twitter, but I haven't seen any Corbyn supporters commenting on it here.
Corbyn would still be leader today no matter what the PLP or the polls said.
Today, maybe, though not for much longer. Without interference, I'd have given him three years at most.
