does anyone think that david cameron is 'prime minister material' ? or even worse george osborne? they are slick salesmen that the media have decided are right for the job. thatcher was clearly not prime minister material by any standards and certainly not in comparison with michael foot but it is not for us to decide these matters, it's for rupert murdoch and friends.
i do fear that the media will slaughter jeremy corbyn (as they have done with every labour leader except blair) but you have to have hope that there are enough decent people around to at least listen to the message of a better way of organising things for all of society. or do we just accept that greed and personal gain is the only thing driving our politics?
