I know Corbyn is (probably) a liability but It can’t be so bad that Emily Thornberry would improve their chances can it?
One of the most stupid and naive modern political tropes is that if someone other than Corbyn was fronting the Labour campaign then the media would coo and fawn over Labour.
This is of course drivel; they aren't interested in a bearded veggie from North London for who he is they are interested in stopping the political program he has instigated.
Put someone else in charge and they would get the same shit day after, and no one who wanted to return to the pro-austerity shit-baggery of the centrists is ever going to get within a country mile of the Labour leadership.
The idea that this campaign fronted by Keir Starmer would be a winner is ignoring the fact that the Daily Mail and the BBC would be leading every day with every single decision he ever made as DPP that the Daily Mail didn't like, which would be just about every single one because no paedos got the rope.
As I said stupid and naive.
