There are some doubts as to whether those who claim that Mr Corbyn is ‘unelectable’ really understand what is happening to our society and to other societies.

I can understand why media such as the Daily Mail/Express/The Times/The Daily Telegraph, which support what the current government is doing or allowing to happen, are distracting their readers by not exposing the truth.

The truth is that our society and other societies are being disenfranchised by global corporate organisations. Our way of life, the structures of societies, our legal systems, will soon be totally dictated by corporate executives. Once these non-elected faceless persons tie down the legal system to their benefit, there will be nothing a democratic society will be allowed to do to oppose anything that disadvantages its members. Take TTIP. This is supposed to be a trade agreement that will benefit ourselves and the corporates. Do not be fooled by any assurances given by this government. The corporate lawyers will drive a coach and four through any assurances that do not maximise their interests.

Mr Jeremy Corbyn is the only candidate with the vision and the strength to resist this move. It is suggested that he represents a backward step into principled politics, out of step with the modern day’s hedonism. They seem to be saying, along with those who doubt Mr Corbyn is electable, that members of modern society prefer self-centredness to a society that fights against exploitation and which cares for the most vulnerable. I think that there is enough evidence to show that this is not so. Surely this is why he has gained so much support? He represents a stand against the fickle promises of a global corporate funded government and, once they know the truth, more people will support him and elect him. If he is ‘unelectable’, it is because the nation is being hoodwinked into anxiety about red herring issues. The issue over migrants is a glaring example. Practically every day the media publish astounding and misleading myths about what is happening in Calais but the undermining of societies by the global corporates is ‘brushed under the carpet’. Mr Corbyn will tell the truth.
