"But if the DUP was also weakened, it might be significant."
Position in the Northern counties is obscured by the fact that Governance there has been for over two years
The DUP is in decline and the party riven with scandals
Corbyn's age is of no relevance if he is capable of leading and if the party is run on the lines that he can me democratically replaced when he becomes unfit for the job
It's about time parties were chosen on the basis of their policies and not on the charisma (or otherwise) of who leads them
I'd long ceased voting for any of the bastards when Corbyn came along - our young war criminal Blair did it for me
If the coup is going to be defeated, it will only be by a combination of efforts by the sensible and democratic members of all parties anyway - I'd back Corbyn before any of the others as caretaker leader and certainly before a new kid on the block
Corbyn has had the support of young Labour up to now - pretty well unprecedented for any party - but they have proved they are keeping an eye on how he lives up to their trust - you don't get healthier politics than that
