Told ya so

As predicted, Corbyn and Labour did very, very well in the elections.  Not an outright win -- unless Labour could form a coalition with the SNP, Lib Dems and others.

From Labour's point of view, however, this is a strategic victory.  Corbyn and his supporters are validated.  The Media -- and most important of all -- the Blairite holdouts in parliament have been proven wrong.    It is time now to further reform Labour, with more direct democracy and to turf the Blairities.

The changes implied in the Labour Manifesto cannot be accomplished without a full majority -- which means national consensus.  

That must wait until the next election -- which will happen soon enough (yes, another prediction!).
