As a politician, Jeremy Corbyn may be refreshingly uncalculating, as evidenced by his appearance, which is clearly not the product of consultants. No, it’s his uncompromising dedication to some very troubling opinions that is the problem:
He is a stater of, rather than an arguer for, them: any contradiction of his views tends to bring forth a repetition rather than an attempt at persuasion or even explanation. As with his appearance, so with his opinions: and no one could accuse him of hiding them (I will not call them a light) under a bushel. If you dislike Hamas and Hezbollah, Mr Corbyn is not going to change his opinion or stance merely to canvass or capture your vote. He is sincere, terribly and frighteningly sincere.
