I was around when Michael Foot became leader and the support that Corbyn has from members and supporters is very very different — it’s silly to even compare. Foot didn’t ever have the sort of support that Corbyn is having today. People who haven’t been involved in politics are now becoming interested and engaged. I’m not saying that this will automatically convert to electoral success, but I do agree with Julia’s point that up until the coup, Labour were ahead in the polls, and one can’t deny that no matter what shortcomings Corbyn and McDonnell may or may not have, the orchestrated coup has done untold damage.
