Corbyn, Brexit and Trump - oh, twenty-teens, what did we do to you?

Sadly anyone who doesn't think Trump will win in November, and he will, doesn't get populism.

What has become important is to fizz credulous people into a frenzy and crush all political nuances.If you are a populist you will regard the following as good things.

1. Corbyn will be Prime Minister. The hijacking of the Labour Party by the extreme left is well underway and is going to plan. Cleverly the socialists are hoovering up any anti-establishment votes - sticking it to the toffs and showing parliament and the meedya no one's goona push them around etc.

Of course, there will be a fight to the death between UKIP supporters and Corbynites for the votes of the credulous but the latter will win (in both senses). By the way, in case anyone doesn't get just who Corbyn is, he is supported and endorsed fully by the Morning Star. (It's funny. I never thought it was still going but it very much is.)

And to quote them, "The paper’s editorial line remains anchored in the political programme of the Communist Party of Britain."

2. Britain will leave the EU. The Brexit vote was another fine manifestation of a protest vote spinning out of control.

3. Trump will be President. The message is 'I can make America great again.' Whether what Trump says is true or not doesn't matter. 

For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.

What H.L Mencken was misquoted as saying once has been distilled over time into, "For every complex human problem, there is a solution that is neat, simple and wrong."

What is true in every case above is that simple people are being offered simple solutions to difficult problems and how well the clever know how to do that.
