Hung, drawn and quartered

I note from the Observer (July 8 ) that ‘several Hastings councillors have signed a letter pledging their support for beleaguered Labour party leader, Jeremy Corbyn.’

Surely the letter should have been signed by ALL the Labour Hastings Councillors?

It seems to me that all Jeremy Corbyn seeks is a safer world, a better deal for those less well off, not just the privileged and the protection of vital public services? Okay, he wasn’t quite sure what should happen in Europe...Well, he’s definitely not alone in that position is he?

So is Mr Corbyn’s viewpoint of such an extreme nature that he deserves to be hung, drawn and quartered? I don’t think so.
