Removal of resistance: He would deny this, perhaps sincerely, but I know that my assessment is sadly correct.
Unification: Pride, reputation, game play and electioneering is at work now, and the Labour Party will throw away the only real tool it ever had for protecting and serving the British public and any of that public's allies.
But you have to ask: what good was a party where only the leader was capable of doing any real good and even his allies and followers were weak in one or other way which he isn't, whilst everyone else is categorically inferior to him in every way which matters? A society like that is dysfunctional. When there are 400 to 600 Jeremy Corbyns in Parliament, regardless of name, age, gender, then we will see democracy. Until then I may be called Shams, but they are THE sham.
When you think about it, whilst I have only sympathy for Jeremy Corbyn, one has to feel very bad for the millions of Britons who will be 100% without protection again when he 'resigns' from being Labour leader. You can lie and pretend to yourselves, but I KNOW, the fact is that nobody else at all can do what he did, none are reliable, none can really be trusted to do it. So it will not be done properly. And that's the future. I who know feel very sad for Britain - its weak and vulnerable will lose their final protection against the Thatchers and Nixons and Bushes and Reagans and Trumps and Johnsons.
Because it cares only what the joneses say, Britain will throw away its LAST protection - Jeremy Corbyn. Because Labour is just as guilty as Boris Johnson of making life revolve around what the Joneses say and think, Labour will not stop him or will push him indeed - and Corbyn will go.
I have no reason to be in despair for myself, at least not because of Labour's loss, but so many people will, I am sure, cry hard over this loss, and I cannot stop feeling much sympathy for them, for we have all been in places of such despair that we wept, and tonight the mass armies of muslim-hating money-loving gullible stupid trampled slaves have 'voted' with both glee and venom to make all those people weep. Was it not Jesus (the Queen's "God" and master, according to her 'faith') who said "what you do to the people in Grenfell, you do to me, you fuckhead".
Jeremy Corbyn is not proud, or weak, I think he's sensible. Presumably the way to save Britain is no longer via the Labour Party. He must realise as much as I do that once he resigns, the Labour party will never again be useful in this battle, even if it should miraculously live to be a valiant institution another day.
Do not despair. There are MANY ways to proceed. None of them, however, involve the Labour Party. It only was useful to democracy with Corbyn as leader. There is no suitable replacement in Parliament.
The most important thing to do right now is to cultivate intellectual self defence in as close as possible to 100% of Corbyn's supporters and anyone else in Britain who has joined that alliance, eg those seriously concerned about properly debating any EU UK 'divorce' - admitting that we have not yet ever had a full honest clear debate about it - no more than we had about Corbyn or his policies. So no matter what you believe it is wrong to proceed with that at all until honesty is the order of the day and debate in that context can happen. As I said, the departure of Corbyn seals the permanent absence of that, for making him depart is the same as making that quality depart.
This is why number one priority is the intellectual self-defence of all those people being wronged, Corbyn's allies and the EU's allies - every one of them a "British voter" - apparently not considered so by Boris Johnson's fans or Tony Blair's fans.
Chomsky states in the preface to Necessary Illusions the opinion that << citizens of the democratic societies should undertake a course of intellectual self-defense to protect themselves from manipulation and control, and to lay the basis for more meaningful democracy. >>
