I think this too comes back to responsibility. Jeremy Corbyn, as leader of the party, must be aware of the mess it’s in, and he must, if he’s any sort of mature adult, be aware that this is, in part, down to him. Even if the buck doesn’t entirely stop here, it certainly pauses from time to time. And if he accepts that, then surely he must be open to suggestions as to how things could be improved, particularly if those suggestions come from a supporter and are constructive and constructively meant? 

And yet he seems to be closed to such suggestions and to any suggestion of changing things to achieve a better outcome. He doesn’t seem to want to take any responsibility either for his part in creating the mess, or for attempting to clean it up. As they say, if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got, and the way things are in the Labour Party at present, I don’t see any chance of things changing any time soon.

More tomorrow.
