“Corbyn and his allies say they don’t like “politics as usual”; but in fact, what they really don’t like is democratic politics, with its compromises and its negotiations, its tedious decision-making process, its inevitable drift toward centrism, and, of course, the annoying voters, journalists, opposition politicians, and others who ask difficult questions. Nor do they like democratic politicians, in Britain, the United States, or anywhere else, preferring the company of Venezuelan populists or radicals funded by Iran. In Parliament for more than 30 years, Corbyn has voted against his own party hundreds of times.

This week, he refused to sing the national anthem.”
