Questions all Jeremy Corbyn supporters need to answer

So here’s the thing, where DO we go from here ? I lived through a Thatcher government, I rejoiced at the election of a new labour government only to be left disappointed and BETRAYED. I didn’t know where to go so I voted Lib Dem (yes that was me) because you can’t waste your vote ! Only to be saddled with a Tory government once again. Corbyn gave me a glimmer of hope. The Brexit vote gave me hope, not because of the outcome but because so many people bothered to vote, some for the first time, including my own daughters ! And now its all dashed…again. Thing is Corbyn has been trashed and it’s hard to see how he can overcome that, meanwhile the PLP have shown a blatant disregard for the views of the membership. I am once again rudderless. Angela Eagle actually said in a live TV brexit debate that immigrants do the work that British people don’t WANT to do. I was so cross I nearly spilt my wine ! :) And just to say I have no problem with immigrants they are every bit as much of a victim of the current political system as as we all are. Yes, you have to be elected to make a difference but if that means you have to dumb down your argument and tow the establishment line what’s the point ?
