How do you measure such a thing? 

Which year in history was socialism closest to being accepted in the uk?

Corbyn was about as close to Marx as Farage was to Hitler. Socialism isn’t something that could work in the U.K. without a full on revolution. Corbyn renationalising the railways doesn’t make him Lenin. But don’t let that stop a good daily mail scare story. Anyway he’s rightly been ousted now and likely to be replaced by a much more centrist labour shadow cabinet.

B1, plenty of people voted Labour knowing that Corbyn was never going to become PM, because Labour were never going to win the election - in a large part because of Corbyn (personal approval rating consistently around -40%); the objective was to limit the size of the Tory majority. 

I know you get it, but for some this is apparently way too complicated to absorb.

Exactly I cited Labour in the hope it would hobble the Tories majority not because I wanted a Corbyn led Labour government sadly ‘get Brexit done’ was cat nip for some (really trying hard not to name call). Wink
