2 in 5 British voted for a loathsome communist

Namely, the Labour party's Jeremy Corbyn. Daniel Hannan wrote all about it:
How the blithering flip did it happen?

I know we have seen some surprising election results over the past year, but this one is off the scale.

Two in five British people have voted for an unrepentant Communist, a man who has consistently sided with the West’s enemies, a man who regrets the outcome of the Cold War.

I realize that these are big claims and, in a political climate where hyperbole is normal, you might think I’m exaggerating. I am not. But Jeremy Corbyn is not simply a left-wing populist in the mould of say, Sen. Bernie Sanders. Sanders is, as P.J. O’Rourke might put it, wrong within the normal parameters of wrong. Corbyn’s politics do not resemble those of the old Vermont senator, so much as one of those early 20th-century American Communists: John Reed, say, or Eugene Dennis.

The bedrock of Corbyn’s ideology is that the West is always and everywhere wrong. This belief has led him into some strange alliances. He supported the IRA when it was seeking to bomb Northern Ireland into submission. He backed Hamas and Hezbollah. He was a cheerleader for Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez. He wouldn’t even condemn the fascist Argentine junta that invaded the Falkland Islands in 1982, because hey, they couldn’t be all bad if they were against us.

Asked whether there was a single conflict in which he would take the side of Britain against its enemies, Corbyn eventually came up with just one example: World War II. Yeah, right, Jeremy: after Stalin had swapped sides in 1941, maybe.

And yet, to repeat, 40 percent of British voters backed Labour candidates on Thursday. What was going through their minds?
While the recent terrorist attacks may have discouraged some voters from voting for the Tories, based on the perception they have no intention of fighting them convincingly, it does look like a disturbing mentality's now prevailing in Britain, and likely was for a long time. And if that's how they're going, it doesn't bode well for the blighty.
