Jeremy Corbyn: Three years in to his reign, Labour leader shows no sign of ceasing to upset convention, the odds – and many of his MPs | The Independent

Corbyn’s tenure was never meant to last – let alone turn into a vast social movement unlike any before seen in British politics

With hindsight, the earthquake that shook British politics three years ago this week feels more like a gentle tremor. Since then, commentators have been regularly overwhelmed by the temptation to recast the unlikely landslide election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party as either the forewarning or even the direct cause of the more violent tectonic activity that has followed it. Without Corbyn there is no Brexit, with no Brexit there is no Trump, so the theory goes. But the counterfactual bears consideration. In the Corbyn-free branch of history, it falls to Andy Burnham to save the world. You may wish to draw your own conclusions.

For those who view Corbyn’s election as an unnatural disaster, the clean-up was meant to have been completed by now. The radioactive leaks contained, normality restored, the Labour Party area declared safe again. But that has not happened. Not only is his position as leader of the party both unassailable and entirely legitimate, but it would take no small amount of bravery to bet on anyone but Jeremy Corbyn emerging victorious whenever the UK gets around to having another general election.

The future of Brexit is anything but certain. Donald Trump may yet face impeachment. Jeremy Corbyn, meanwhile, is free and clear – and after some of the most bitter and vicious internal fighting in the party’s history, the consolidation of his control over it is reaching its end point.
