Can Jeremy Corbyn solve the housing crisis?


Never ceases to amaze me how people build castles in the air without asking some very basic questions: What are the chance of Labour being elected in 2020 - 1. At all?. 2. With Corbin as leader? The former look highly unlikely given the result of the last election. Theses chances are probably even less given public sentiment about trust in Labour's fiscal track record. It is unlikely Corbin will inspire trust in those who doubted Ed Milliband. So the short answer is probably not. So the fabulous edifices woven in the comments above are built without the foundation of access to power. He will probably be a fabulous pain in the backside to the government, but beyond that he'll be a caretaker leader for 5 years. Then someone else with a centrist approach will try to build credibility before the 2025 elections.
