This article is crap.
Voters unambiguously rejected Corbyn's socialist program of nationalisations and colossal state spending, delivering Labour's worst result since 1935.
This is false and misleading. The entire election was about Brexit sentiment. Corbyn at first said he would resign to support the Brexit results, but then he was boxed in a corner when running for Prime Minister, so that if he went either way on Brexit, he would have lost huge support on either side. There was also a huge smear campaign by the right and corporate media.
The election wasn't a rejection of his policies. It was an exhausted electorate, right or wrong, wanting movement on Brexit. Labour policies are very popular among the working class, as they should be.
