A cautionary tale for US Democrats if only because of negative media framing of Jeremy Corbyn. Labour’s worst defeat since the 1930s.
Disinformation, racism, Islamophobia, and fascist rhetoric — aided and amplified by the world’s largest social media platform, Facebook — just swung another election. Pay attention to this one, America. #UKElection

No-one should dare try to pin this catastrophe on Corbyn alone. Those really to blame are the woke liberals and Toytown revolutionaries who dominate today's Labour party and forced Corbyn to support a second referendum. In doing so, they have brought about electoral oblivion.
