Lie Back and Think of Venezuela

Is the unthinkable possible - a Corbyn victory? I have predicted a much more narrow win for May than she somehow thinks is her birthright  and said that it was a foolhardy unnecessary risk to go to the country on her part and certainly Corbyn appears to be catching up and narrowing her initial lead. Ideology v pragmatism could  well equal Venezuela as the public sleepwalks to the ballot box seduced by the siren call of free stuff for everybody dispensed with prodigal liberality by a demented Santa Claus bereft of all  his renowned former powers of discrimination.

Maybe if the prevailing othodoxy is pragmatism May will squeeze through but it is playing Russian Roulette with  the country's future and sooner or later the country will be forced to choose between Corbynism or the only real alternative,pure capitalism and now that ideology is apparently respectable or acceptable again what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander and the ideology of capitalism should be articulated.
