Not sheepish, but individ-ewe-al

I don't hate Corbyn. He's less evil than May and less evil than Blair, and he's been consistently anti-war even when that cost him political influence. But I am not voting for someone who blames immigrants for the problems faced by working class people who are always presumed to be white. And I don't understand why my friends, who are generally as much or more anti-racist than I am, think that xenophobia is a minor foible worth putting up with if it means there's a chance of electing someone who might provide (non-immigrant) schoolchildren with free meals.
I don't think a hung parliament and deal making leading to political reform is a likely outcome. It's just possible that with a leader more prepared to compromise than Corbyn, we might get a Labour party that will work with the smaller parties and offer them electoral reform as part of a coalition package. Corbyn won't do that; he hates collaboration, and he loves FPTP because it benefits Labour compared to almost anyone else.
