    It sure ain't left wing.

    OK, it's moved from where the Tories were before New Labour lurched to the right back to the centre but it's still far to the right of the Labour of the 70's

    It is as far left as is electable these days.
    And a lot further left than any Labour party in my lifetime, apart from a brief Michael Foot flirtation maybe.

    The leader maybe but he has got to carry the rest of the PLP with him and they're still centre at best.

    Re: Tory manifesto

    Apparently Labour is surging in the polls, up into the low 30s. Unfortunately still a long way still behind the tories in the mid 40s.

    The socialist economic model seems completely discredited in this country. Honestly I think it might be the best model for the UK (or whatever is left of it after brexit settles) to renationalise all strategic resources: transport, water, power and agriculture and run them not for profit. Keep the NHS, too - it's on its last legs now, brexit will be the death blow as things look at present. But we are looking at a high tax society, and most people won't vote for it.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    As long as the party members are behind him, and if he can win the election against the odds, he will hopefully carry the PLP with him.

    I am pinning my hopes on a surge of young voters registering and yet another election surprise against the predictions.....it can happen again can't it ?

    he hasn't so far, they've fought him tooth and nail since he won the leadership election.

    I might be cynical but loose the election and leave the poison chalice of Brexit to the Tories, use the failure to win as a lever to force Corbyn out and set up shop for next time?

    Yes.....you are cynical.
    Corbyns on record as saying if Labour lose this time, he is going nowhere due to the grass roots membership backing him.
    I seriously think he might just win.
