17. Those third-wayers (Social-Democrats) actually had a lot of followers in 1980.

 

Benn's almost-coup in the Labour party was viewed with the same distrust that inspired the backing of anti-establishment Corbyn.

How many Brits are keen on New Labour's left-overs? The Lib-Dems (which the social-democrats merged into) were more than decimated in the last election. Please remember this too: the last election was fought over the same 64% of the eligeable voters who turn up every election. Conbyn's appeal is to angage those voters who usually stay home.
