COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT
Response to another reader’s comment about globalization, migration, and automation having made Labour’s traditional purpose a thing of the past.
Very true, however what really matters with leadership is not slogans or platforms.
It is integrity.
I think Corbyn has it.
Blair and his acolytes lack it entirely.
The truth is we are in a state of constant change now owing to technology.
No slogan or platform can alter that.
And it will only get worse.
But the people making decisions through that change remain important, at least at this stage of evolution.
My idea of a leader is the person who can be trusted with making decisions from a perspective which is large.
The Tony Blairs of this world are quite the opposite. Dishonest, bought-and-paid-for, and willing to be ruthless enough to see millions die.
