Professor Tim Bale was interviewed about the Labour party's chances in the upcoming general election. "So you can probably say that by Christmas 2015 most voters had decided that this guy [Jeremy Corbyn] couldn't do the job and they didn't want him to do the job [of Prime Minister]. If anything, more people have come to that conclusion as time has gone on. Labour are walking up a dead end street, literally, there's no way through that. Corbyn has been unable to make the public ‘take him seriously’ and see him as a potential Prime Minister," says Professor Bale.
