“Universities are often the powerhouses of some of the most left-behind areas of this country and some of them are the most vulnerable.”

Even the Sun got involved in trying to “save Labour” from Corbyn-supporting members for the sake of democracy or whatever, and in all the excitement nobody spotted that the west Surrey Pinochet revival association has full control of the party of government.
