Less appealing than Miliband and Balls

This is astonishing:

Corbyn and McDonell are less appealing than Miliband and Balls.

In some respects this judgement is unfair.  Jeremy Corbyn is not offering the United Kingdom management of a free market system.  He wants a command economy.

And as the history of the 20th century shows, a command economy will work (we had such a system in the United Kingdom 1939 to 1946 - and experienced huge leaps in productivity and vastly enhanced levels of social cohesion).

A command economy is nothing to be afraid of.

The problem Jeremy Corbyn has is explaining this to the British people while all the time his own side is trying to pull the rug from under his feet.
