Political Crisis in working class

Good summary of the contortions that the British bourgeoise finds itself in following the Brexit vote. As well as the headaches of the capitalist class the left factions within capitalism is also finding the vote a problem. Corbyn constantly retreats and is almost parlaysed by the racist cacophony against migrants. This further paralysis is deepened by the recent loss of Copeland and the close running of UKIP at Stoke. All of this shows that there is a growing crisis within the working class in political representation. This crisis can be seen in the recent anti trump demos where the working class as a class has been absent. This crisis is not leading to growing radicalisation but to a leaden stoicism.
