I do not doubt that Jeremy Corbyn is a man of integrity and conviction. Unfortunately, I perceive that among those convictions are pacifism, unilateral disarmament, appeasement and a naive student-union politics type belief that there will always be a way of reaching a consensus which is mutually beneficial to both sides. Sadly, I believe that it is those very attributes which mean he is not the right person to be Prime Minister, particularly at this portentous time.
Given the momentous negotiations that we are about to embark upon as we withdraw from the EU and as we hear the increasingly bellicose and aggressive rhetoric which is emanating from Brussels, I am convinced that what we need right now is a government which is led by someone who will stand up for what’s best for Britain in the face of the hostile punishment beatings Mr Junker and Mr Tusk want to hand out. The last thing we need is a leader who will follow a line of least resistance to achieve “peace for our time” at any cost, as I fear Mr Corbyn will if he stays true to his integrity and conviction.
Churchill or Chamberlain? May or Corbyn? the choice is yours.
