Now that Corbyn has been re-elected as leader, I ask myself what Labour’s chances are of winning the general election. Labour remains divided. There is Left Labour, say the Corbyn group, and the Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP), say the Blairites. Although there is some gray area somewhere in the middle, these two groups are antipodes. They disagree on the economy, austerity, social welfare policies, public services, the environment, defense, energy, immigrants and international politics. The PLP opposes Corbyn almost 1 to 5 – for every pro Corbyn MP, there are almost 5 who oppose him.
