"Tilting at windmills" seems sadly likely to be accurate (in the sense of "struggling in vain"), but you never know.

It seems to me that far too many Labour MPs have bought into the framework that blames immigrants and benefit scroungers, and can't handle having a leader who doesn't agree with that framework. Which if nothing else provides a tidy account of both Corbyn's strength and his problem. Because how do you lead a bunch of people who stood for the Labour party but have more in common with Conservatives than with the leader and the grassroots?
