Congratulations to Jeremy Corbyn!

I'm suspicious of all politicians, and I don't disinclude Corbyn 
from that. I don't expect he's the best thing since sliced bread, 
and if he actually gets into power I'm sure he'll get into all 
sorts of tangles and may end up going the way of Alexis Tsipras.

But it's really nice to see somebody who looks a bit scruffy, with 
an open-necked shirt and a beard, like an old geography teacher, 
with the implication that he's more interested in his ideas and 
beliefs than his image, and hasn't yet been restyled by the 
image-doctors in an attempt to make him more acceptable to Daily 
Mail readers.

And it's nice to think/hope that there's now going to be a genuine 
alternative on offer, some proper socialism, a genuine attempt to 
build a fairer society, instead of just another version of 
monetarism with a slightly different spin on it.
