“And no matter how much they want to get out of the EU, they cannot stand in the booth, pencil in shaking hand, and vote Tory knowing their grandad, who worked down the pit until he died of a lung disease, would be spinning around in his grave.
He added: “Absolutely everything, then, pointed to a Corbyn victory. And yet somehow, despite all this, Labour suffered its biggest defeat for more than 80 years.”
