‘A Corbyn premiership would be a discomfort for the Labour Blairites, who I despise’, says Peter Hitchens

Mail on Sunday Columnist Peter Hitchens has said that he ‘did get quite a lot of pleasure’ from Jeremy Corbyn’s election campaign, and that ‘a Corbyn premiership would be a discomfort for the Labour Blairites who I despise, and the Tory Blairites who I despise’.

‘He recognises something in a way that neither the Tory party nor its twin in New Labour do not. For millions of people living in Britain, life isn’t much fun’.

‘By simply observing that people were working on zero-hour contracts, couldn’t afford their rents, and were making ends meet by loans, Corbyn observed that life for large numbers of people is pretty thin’.

‘By noticing that the economic recovery just hadn’t happened outside London and the southeast, he got the sympathy of an awful lot of people and that’s how he did so well’.
