In short, Corbyn has proved himself the most popular Labour leader with the electorate in more than 40 years, apart from Blairs landslide victory in 1997. But lets recall the price Blair paid for that very small margin of improvement over Corbyns vote. Behind the scenes, he sold Labours soul to the City, the corporations and their lobbyists. That Faustian pact secured Blair the backing of most of the British media, including Rupert Murdochs stable of papers and TV channel. The corporations mobilised their entire propaganda machine to get Blair into power. And yet he managed it with only 2 percentage points more than Corbyn, who had that same propaganda machine railing against him.
