I don’t know what to say here. Me I am on the other side of the same movement, in the US I am “feeling the Bern” as a Sanders guy and as an observer on the UK side chanting “Jez We Can!” for Jeremy Corbyn.

But I never expected that the post-Reagan consensus that come what may we have to massage the feelings of Wall Street bankers would come unstuck. By an all out assault from the Right.
