Jeremy Corbyn MP has just been elected as Leader of the Labour Party in Great Britain. A radical left wing political figure, he ended up on the ballot by the skin of his teeth expecting to do poorly, but had a ridiculously high mandate from the membership of the Labour Party, even as he lacks support amongst his own MPs. But he is now a very anti-monarchist, public transport taking, non car-owning  Leader Of Her Majesty's Opposition with his own limosine and driver. His deputy has been elected as Tom Watson MP, the not-quite-as-lefty-bit-still-radical political blogger. The cartoon I did, above, for Guido Fawkes has proved rather predictive.
