COMMENT POSTED TO A COLUMN BY JONATHAN FREEDLAND IN THE GUARDIAN

With Trump and Brexit, politicians must put principles before prospects

“politicians must put principles before prospects”?

Is this a sarcasm?

Please name the last politician with principles?

Bob Corker has made a cold calculation about Trump, who is unpopular in the US, with some record low approval ratings at this stage, and who is very unpopular abroad, so much so in Britain that he can’t visit so far.

The entire Republican establishment does not like Trump who is viewed as having hi-jacked the party. They mostly don’t openly attack him, but in various ways they make their views understood.

Please name a politician who works to diminish his/her prospects? Pure fantasy.

Jeremy Corbyn comes the closest to being a genuinely principled politician in either country, Britain and the US, but Jonathan Freedland helped lead the charge, attacking him a number of times over what were, as it happens, completely unsubstantiated charges.

Well, so much for consistency in the principles of column scribblers.
