If there's one thing Jeremy Corbyn is weak on its defence. His association with the anti-West Stop the War Coalition, refusal to condemn IRA violence and his other nefarious associations make him unfit for government in most peoples eyes.
Today it emerged in The Times that his policy chief one Andrew Fisher had previously mooted that Labour should not just scrap Trident, but disarm the police and disband MI5. Can you imagine the problems that would arise from such tomfoolery?
Who would deal with terrorist attacks? Who would uncover their plots. Come to think of it who would be able to deal with armed robbery? A recipe for disaster if ever there was one.
This of course comes at the same time as those highly respected democrats of the Communist Party declare their support for Corbyn along with the old Militant Tendency as Dave Nellist praises Corbyn. Of course they are not (yet) in the Labour Party, but Lenin always urged the affiliation of the CPGB to Labour and had a view that "communists should support Labour like a rope supports a hanged man". Quite apt given the downwards direction of the party under Corbyn.
The only people who would gain from Corbyn's ascendancy to power would be Putin and the mad clerics of Iran (and elsewhere amongst his "friends" in the Middle East.
His policy "advisor" Fisher talks the talk about MP's earning the "average workers wage" whilst earning £56,000. Hardly a wage yer average worker can obtain, but then comrade Fisher has never had a proper job.
Yet Corbyn surrounds himself with Stalinists and Trotskyist dilettantes because he hasn't got a clue either. He doesn't understand the "working class" having been a protester and sheltered politician all his life.
Labour is in serious danger. Only tribal loyalism is keeping the vote as high as it is and the news that Tory support is growing in Wales must worry those who remain in the party hoping for a Corbyn free future. Scotland is lost and only the Tories seem to be rising (albeit modestly) north of the border. If Wales is lost Labour will have no future.
