Supporters of Jeremy Corbyn believe that the Labour leader could be set to unveil his fiendishly clever plan to save Britain from a disastrous hard Brexit and propel his party toward a famous landslide win at the next General Election.
The news comes after Labour won only 14% of the vote in a catastrophic performance in the European elections.
‘To the casual observer it may look like Labour is stumbling from one electoral humiliation to the next with no apparent strategy other than constantly calling for another General Election’ says Corbyn supporter Fenton Barnes.
‘And Jeremy may look like an incompetent old ideologue who is failing to provide clear leadership during the biggest crisis since the second world war, but in reality he is like a great chess champion – always thinking 3 or 4 moves ahead; it’s just that the Blairites and the lackeys of the Murdoch-owned media are too dim to appreciate Jeremy’s tactical genius’.
‘It’s only by charting a steady course toward the electoral abyss that Jeremy can lull our opponents into a false sense of security; one day soon the masterplan will be revealed and Britain will see what a great leader he is. Yep, any day now. Probably’.
Following the election Mr Corbyn has refused to back a second Brexit referendum despite many senior Labour figures calling for him to do so.
‘We’ll back a second referendum if there’s a demand for it but that’s not what we’ve been hearing on the doorstep during the campaign’ the Labour leader told BBC News.
‘We’ve heard a diverse range of opinions from voters, the most common one being – ‘get off my f**king doorstep’’
