Corbyn support ‘collapses’ to the same level as the last leadership race he won

The increasingly feral British media has landed another scoop:

But there’s a problem. Because this is roughly the same level of support Corbyn had in the last leadership race. The one he won in a landslide. A ‘landslide’ being literally similar to a ‘collapse’ but figuratively quite different.

 

Collapse in journalism

Journalists from Rupert Murdoch’s Times still have to maintain a veneer of professionalism, so one of them came out to say this:

Yeah – so a lot of you are pointing out that – to the untrained eye – it looks like Corbyn still has the same level of support he did two years ago. Right… okay… but the thing is, yeah… umm… well… so I guess it’s not the same people supporting him as before, or something?

When asked to confirm if he knew what he was on about, the journalism-themed ‘news’-regurgitator said:

So… err… some people stopped supporting him… but others started supporting him… thus… you know… disguising the collapse.

The new normal

When asked if you could really call this a ‘collapse’, the man said:

Well, I’m sure we could, because we have. Maybe we should have reported that Corbyn has lost the support of the better Labour types – the proper Corbynistas? Yeah – that might fly.

Having just come up with it, the ‘journalist’ left to go and write the ‘news’.
