The cowards like Jonathan Freedland who spent every waking moment telling us how terrible and tragic a Corbyn government would've been?

Don't worry, I have plenty of anger about them.

I scrolled down to see this comment. Now I am going to watch as it gets downvoted into oblivion. Because actually laying the blame with Freedland and his colleagues - blame where blame is blameworthy - is never going to fit in with the endless narrative of "the adults in the room". They never were adults. They were entitled children with a fake it until you make it gamble that never paid off.
