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.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
