Reader’s Comment of the Day: Today’s hard Left is a paper tiger


In response to Paul T Horgan: Corbyn cannot win by fair means. So his left-wing bully boys will take to the streets, corinium wrote:

Direct action by the hard Left won’t work; it didn’t in the 1970s and the unions controlled far more of the economy then than they do now. All the unions can do is stop trains and government services, the cancellation of the latter could actually be beneficial to the rest of the country. Social workers on a picket line aren’t going to bring the economy to its knees.

Everything else is in private hands now and will be kept running. So the Left can expend a lot of hot air on strikes and marches and the like, but all that would be achieved is more votes for the adults who actually get on with running the country in a sensible manner.

The Left make a lot of noise but are a small minority – the majority are heard only at the ballot box, and Corbyn’s Labour will get a bloody nose there.
