COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY FADUMA HASSAN IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

 

I do not agree with Faduma Hassan that it was just this week.

Corbyn has stood up well under fire, a set of unprecedented attacks, both personal and political, from many quarters.

I like him more than ever.

First, the many calls for a different leader right after his overwhelming election.

And the attacks by human scum like Tony Blair.

The attacks by disloyal party members like Hilary Benn.

The mass walk-out of Tony Blair’s loyalists, admirers of a mass murderer, all of them.

The damnable attacks by the press and a truly shabby prime minister about non-existent anti-Semitism. A true wave of hate modeled on Sen Joseph McCarthy’s name-calling filth from the 1950s.

The same shabby prime minister’s insults about Corbyn’s choice of clothes, unwarranted insults with absolutely no apology.

Standing up to the disastrous consequences of the prime minister’s embarrassing referendum campaign, which indelibly marks David Cameron as the most incompetent man ever to hold his office, a fact which should influence everyone’s thinking about his party’s policies.

Mr Corbyn, you look better, and taller, than ever.
