Quote of the day

"What strange people we Brits are. We spend years moaning that our politicians are cynical opportunists who don’t stand for anything. Then along comes an opposition leader who has principles - and appears to stick by them even when it makes him unpopular - and he is dismissed as a joke."

Thus begins a surprisingly sensible Spectator article on Jeremy Corbyn, who is depicted by the magazine's deputy editor Freddy Gray as honourably (if naively) steadfast in his beliefs and position - in comparison to David Cameron, who appears to be making up his foreign policy on the fly with no regard for the consequences.
