- Way beyond the Rubicon
Most people on the left in the USA say their main problem with Bernie is that they wish he was more like Corbyn, especially when it comes to foreign policy, and a "consistently votes right in a democratic district" like Beto is a non-starter.Have to agree. Perhaps he's just playing politics and if he is and it works fair play to him but he's just not impressive is he? Others in the party such as David Lammy seem to have a lot more about them. In the US you have these fresh voices on the left like Bernie, Beto and Ocasio-Cortez speaking with a very clear message. Corbyn is an altogether more muddled personality.
Corbyn is playing politics alright but sure who isn't? Right now for the first time he's mentioned something about a second referendum and he's immediately being threatened with resignations.
What should he actually do? Genuine question. I'd personally veer towards a second referendum and that's the way it seems to be going, but is there a better solution?
