McCluskey re Corbyn and the coup

"It seems clear that this coup would have been launched irrespective of the referendum result," he writes. "Anyone who thinks remain would have won the vote if Jeremy Corbyn had told traditional Labour areas that all was well with the EU and with globalisation is living in a dream world. It is easier to do that from an oligarch's yacht or a bank boardroom than it is in our de-industrialised cities and towns. In fact, Corbyn was honest and straightforward about a complex question."
