Jeremy Corbyn: Accidental Hero

by W Stephen Gilbert - £9.99  Eyewear Publishing (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781908998972 | ISBN 10: 1908998970

How did modest backbench MP Jeremy Corbyn come virtually out of nowhere to lead the parliamentary opposition, as the most avowedly non-conformist Labour leader in British history? Is his leadership built to last? Will those in the Labour party who reject his policies and principles seek to have him replaced? Will Corbyn self-destruct or become a game-changer? British politics is poised at a fascinating and unpredictable juncture.
In this entertaining guide, W Stephen Gilbert sketches an informative portrait of the man who rose in a most unexpected way to one of the summits of British political life - and explodes some of the myths that have accompanied that rise. The figure that emerges seems to possess an almost Zen-like resistance to harm, but might that mean he fails to recognize hazards ahead?
Those who would ponder and perhaps argue these questions will find the material they need. Here. Now.
