Just came across this wonderful commentary in the Guardian on the current vitriol in the UK press against Labour leadership candidate Jeremy Corbyn.
The problem is not so much that people believe what they read in the press which, God knows, is bad enough. They believe what they read in the headlines.
I do wonder how the press will cope if he is elected as leader of the Labour party. A politician who is polite, sober, principled and says what he thinks, even if people disagree. Mind you, it will never catch on.
