Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
As you know, and as has been explained, had it been a general election Labour would have formed a government with Lib Dem, SNP and Plaid support.
I do admire confidence, but when misplaced one must expect disappointment.
Let me give you John McDonnell as an example. He predicted Labour would GAIN 400 seats BEFORE crushing defeat and a loss of nearly 90 seats.
There is a difference between optimism, wishful thinking and sheer delusion. I leave you to tick the appropriate box.
If Corbyn thought he had any kind of support he would have called for a no confidence vote months ago.
As the illustrious Maggie would have said: "He was frit!"
