A poll by Rupert Murdoch’s Times Radio has found Jeremy Corbyn is the best Prime Minister the UK never had, ahead of stars of the Labour movement such as Tony Benn and John Smith as well as an array of Tory also-rans
Corbyn beat the late Charles Kennedy, winning 57.7% of the vote in the final round.
Times hack Matt Chorley, who published the poll, appeared to try to influence it with a tweet, before his own poll on Corbyn and Kennedy closed, of a poll claiming Corbyn was unpopular – and was castigated for doing so:
Sky News had to draw attention to the same right-wing poll to try to discredit the result, but even the Murdoch media can’t fully obscure what the UK lost when voters fell for 5 years of media smears and centrist sabotage on Brexit last December – or even earlier, when right-wing MPs and staff prevented a Corbyn-led government in 2017.
Thousands of people would be alive today who instead were killed by Tory arrogance over the pandemic or Tory cruelty in austerity and the country would be a kinder, more decent place with a more functional democracy and media.
But the truth can’t quite be fully hidden and even the Murdoch Times has received a no doubt unwelcome reminder.
