To help journos and politicos on the right, let me explain Corbyn's Brexit plan. Its simple elegance.
Corbyn has repeatedly said the vote has been had and the question is settled. So the Tories have no line of attack on Labour is anti-brexit
This means Corbyn keeps his Leave voters. However, can then unilaterally offer rights to EU nationals and promise a jobs first Brexit.
It means under-45s who now loathe the Tories as the Brexit Party for what they - rightly - see as their xenophobia flock to Corbyn's banner.
Corbyn is therefore perfectly placed. If the country turns against Brexit, he can pivot. If it doesn't he can hold the line.
And it leaves the Tories unable to pivot from Brexit - which they don't *actually* want - and increasingly toxic in the eyes of the young.
Any attempt to water down Brexit will lead to a Tory civil war and a loss of voters to UKIP. Corbyn doesn't have that issue.
Its why he can say that he won't follow the Tories into the gutter of blaming migrants and no lose votes.
Its why the Tories are now desperate to claim they liked EU nationals all along, but no-one believes them. They are now #TheBrexitParty
As Napoleon said, never interrupt your enemy while they're making a mistake. Corbyn need only keep schtum on Brexit & let the Tories implode
