The quest to drive Jeremy Corbyn from Labour leadership has not abated. Though the UK political situation is not grabbing the same headlines it did a few weeks ago, the British Establishment is nevertheless concerned. The government of Theresa May is not well established and there is this ever-gnawing fear and real possibility of a snap election.
These scenarios mean Corbyn could still end up becoming Prime Minister. And to those in the Establishment... that cannot happen.
The Labour Leadership poll at the end of September will prove a critical moment. If they fail to drive Corbyn from power, then the Establishment will become very desperate.
Corbyn is attacked for his ostensibly poor leadership skills and his lack of zeal in opposing Brexit.
The truth is Corbyn is hated because he doesn't have a proper and accepted commitment to NATO, Anglo-American imperialism and official doctrine concerning nuclear weapons. The military class loathes him.
He has failed to exhibit proper hostility to Russia and is being subjected to a mild version of Neo-McCarthyism, a witch hunt determined to eliminate anyone who doesn't get on board with the official position.
Thus far, Corbyn has failed to really stand for much of anything. He's already been exposed as a non-fighter... with the exception of retaining his post as Labour leader. His intransigence on that point sparks fear because it means that somewhere under the humble exterior lies an ego and a sense of resolve. His weakness thus far cannot be guaranteed were he to be given a position of greater power.
