Britain’s Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbin on his party’s overwhelming rejection in yesterday’s national elections:
I will discuss with our party to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going forward.
Compare the (at least feigned) contrition and promise for introspection with the American Democratic party’s attitude about losing the presidency to Donald Trump. Democrats, instead of looking inward, responded by characterizing those who made the decision to reject their statist vision some variant of ignorant redneck racists.
I wonder how that strategy will work for them.
