CBC says: U.K. Labour Party picks anti-monarchist Jeremy Corbyn as leader

Veteran far-left legislator Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of Britain’s opposition Labour Party on Saturday, a runaway victory that threatens to further divide the party as it struggles to recover from a heavy defeat in elections earlier this year.

Corbyn’s win is one of the biggest political shake-ups in British politics in decades, marking a sharp left turn for his party and a rejection of the more centrist policies of his predecessors.

The ABC says: Socialist Jeremy Corbyn crowned leader of UK’s Labour Party

Anti-austerity left-winger Jeremy Corbyn has been elected leader of Britain’s opposition Labour Party in a landslide victory that could divide the party and cause headaches for the government on foreign policy.

While the BBC reports: Jeremy Corbyn wins Labour leadership contest and vows “fightback”

Jeremy Corbyn has promised to lead a Labour “fightback” after being elected the party’s new leader by a landslide.

The veteran left-winger got almost 60% of more than 400,000 votes cast, trouncing his rivals Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall.

So an anti-monarchist is crowned the leader after winning by a landslide of approximately 60% of votes in a four person contest despite being to the left of Marx, Lenin, and Mao and this is going to cause a split in the Labour Party because he doesn’t support the “centrist” policies that haven’t worked so well for the Party lately.

I seriously doubt Mr. Corbyn is going to move the desk from the Reading Room of the British Library that Karl used when writing Das Kapital to Number 10. Anyone who thinks that the path to victory is by advocating policies that will hurt your voters is seriously disturbed.

Update: Trump fooled into retweeting photo of socialist Labour Party leader
