The Moment A Caller To James Reaches "Peak Corbynista"

"You've Just Reached Peak Corbynista!"

A former Corbyn fanatic tells James O'Brien why he's lost faith in the Labour leader - and for James, it sums up so much.


Does this clip sum up the problem that Labour supporters face right now - especially the ones who used to think Jeremy Corbyn was going to save the party?

Rick phoned in to James O'Brien to talk about Britain's political future and where Labour goes from here, as Theresa May confirmed Article 50 will be triggered on March 29th.

Admitting that he was "fully drank the Jeremy Corbyn kool-aid" when the Labour leader swept to power, Rick told James that he had cooled substantially on the Islington MP.

"I'm not happy with him for different reasons than other people are unhappy with him...I'm unhappy that he doesn't stand up for the Labour members that were kicked out of the party for ridiculous reasons like liking the Green Party."

"He doesn't stand up for himself. It's so sad. It's so sad!

"Tory peers in the Lords - what happened to them when they stood up to the government and didn't play ball? The chap lost his job...The Tories, like them or loathe them, they rule with strength."

James cut in: "But mate, with the greatest of love and respect, you've just reached peak Corbynista. You've said I've got a problem with him for chucking out people I agree with, we need to be more like the Tories and chuck out more people I disagree with."

Rick responded that Corbyn had "a thousand knives in his back" but James didn't want him to backtrack: "For me, that is the Corbynist position in an unintentional nutshell."
