I have mixed feelings about Corbyn's triumph: shame, obviously, that a man with such repugnant associations should be the leader of a major British political party; embarrassment that the the Labour Party should have reduced itself to ridicule; excitement at the prospect of some hitherto unlikely politics; fear that a demagogue will be elected into power in 2020; but, above all, a kind of melancholy at the sheer stupidity that has brought it to pass. But, hey, what do I know? I'm just an ageing bloke with a belief in that old-time liberal democracy.  And, ok, I admit, the feelings aren't really that mixed.
