Jeremy Corbyn’s successor may be more establishment than you expect

4 January 2019

Professor Tim Bale published an article for New Statesman on the possibilities of Jeremy Corbyn’s successor. He writes: “Those who think, then, that Corbyn will automatically be replaced by someone in his own anti-establishment image may need to think again. If our survey is a straw in the wind, then Labour, post-Corbyn, may find itself led for the very first time, not by a woman or by an ethnic minority politician, but instead by a knight of the realm.”
