Michael Foot: remake or sequel?

They say there’s nowt as queer as folk. But electing Jeremy Corbyn? Sheesh. At least he’ll enliven the political scene; not so much clear blue water as an ocean apart. A gift for the media. Careful what you wish for, however: someone has described the old duffer as a woodwork teacher by day; at night a fearless vampire hunter. Many of us have been here before, back in the 70s and 80s. It will be a bumpy ride but we know how it ends. At least I hope we do. A reminder yet again that if you have something to sell, people will buy it.
