It has been a summer of relentless smears against Jeremy Corbyn, his team and his supporters as the Establishment desperately tries to bring him down before the Democracy Review rule changes and Labour’s annual conference next month put the party beyond the reach of the Tory-Lites indefinitely.
But those smears appear not to be cutting through. At the Boardmasters festival in Cornwall last weekend, around 18,000 young people were participating in a huge ‘silent disco’ when the White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’ played through their headphones.
The result was electrifying – and suggests that enthusiasm for the Labour leader has not dimmed even a little:
They know where hope lies.
That sound in the background as the video ends? That’s so-called centrists and Establishment smear-merchants tearing out their hair.
Be prepared for even more desperate measures as they try to make something, anything stick before the key changes over the next 6 weeks.
Big hat-tip to @djdanpropaganda and @msparadoxy
