The only way this country can prove it's not really just a bunch of arseholes is if Corbyn wins a landslide. Even a small win will not spare Britain judgment.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: This is a backward, broken, diseased nation which even at the height of bastardy, disease, self-destruction and evil, whether left or right, whether the 'many' or the 'few', always feels driven to never let go of the delusion that Britain is somehow greater or better than the rest of the world in the field of x or y or z or n or r or p etc. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: In reality an approximate assessment would probably assert that Britain, France, the USA, Australia and Israel are the worst at almost everything which you should be good at, in the world, in history.

Removal of resistance: The five bottom of the whole class. Unification: Naturally spend all their time, left and right and centre, bragging about how actually they're better than the rest of the class.

Even if Corbyn wins, you won't have proved me wrong. THE ONLY WAY you can prove me wrong, prove that this diseased island of jackasses can evolve, is if Corbyn's victory is big - ie it is sufficient to astonish. Given his 'disadvantage' (the full force of corporations attempting to throttle his success) that means nothing lower than a clear majority, untouchable by resignations or dissent. If he wins that, then maybe the opinion of the rest of the human race outside the 5 bottom of the class jackasses is too negative towards the 5 jackasses. Who knows? We all "know the odds", though. The opinion seems pretty well deserved.

What I love most about "Dad's Army" and Arthur Lowe in general is how consistently and relentlessly he ridicules this attitude among British people, this "Britain first" attitude, this "Britain is the greatest" attitude. In the words of Pertwee as Doctor Who - "Your duty to your country? What about your duty the world?"
