In all our sanctuaries we sit at risk

Jez Has Trouble with Today


In the press, the same phrases have kept coming up in relation to Jeremy Corbyn’s failure to take a clear position, or offer any real leadership, on Brexit. Almost on a weekly basis, there has been “new pressure” on him from one or another of his various supporter groupings, to “come off the fence.” “Crunch meetings” have kept being arranged, but they resolve nothing and all that results is a change of adjective : “crunch” became “tense.” The day before this stanza was written, another such meeting took place. Same old result. Personally, I see no real “fence” for Jez to sit on, whatever the rationalisations. I just see his gross and unforgivable inadequacy.
