Corbyn''s Labour

The latest YouGov poll has the Corbyn led Labour Party trailing well behind the Conservatives in terms of voting intentions for the Westminster Parliament.

In recent years it has become fashionable for some people to deride the election victories of Tony Blair on the basis that any fool wearing a 'red rosette' could have won in 1997 when  New Labour opened up a 20 point opinion poll lead.

Yet in 2018 facing the weakest Conservative government in generations, arguably, Jeremy Corbyn can't convince the voters that he's fit to become Prime Minister.
