Loyal Opposition as Fifth Columnist

by Jonah Goldberg

I keep thinking that Jeremy Corbyn will stop being Jeremy Corbyn once he realizes he can’t afford to be anymore. Then I read things like this:

Jeremy Corbyn has said he is “not happy” with letting Britain’s security services adopt a “shoot-to-kill policy” if terrorists were loose in the UK.

The Labour leader said he thought the policy could be “quite dangerous” and “counterproductive”, warning that it could lead to “war on the streets”.

The remarks come just days after the French military were deployed in Paris amid fears terrorists who had launched a series of attacks in the French capital were still at large.

As a friend of mine notes in an e-mail, Corbyn had no problem honeymooning in East Germany, where the military had shoot-to-kill orders for people trying to leave.
