As many play fantasy Labour leader and to try to imagine who they’d like to replace Jeremy, something to think about first: the impact of the toxic media, it will restrict who stands and what they’ll represent
-Palestine you’ll be smeared as an anti Semite
-fair tax of the rich and proper NHS and schools spending you’ll be called a Marxist
and they’ll slap you everyday
Carry on with the manifesto Corbyn put forward knowing you, your family and anyone who supports you will attacked and smeared?
Have a programme the media will tolerate, knowing they’ll let you off until the next Election?
You do a Blair and be a better Tory than the Tories then they’ll go easy on you in that Election
Who can be that strong to not to buckle or sell out?
So the “policy fit” of leadership contenders is second for me to character. It’s my first hurdle and yes it’s a high bar but it has to be.
