At the time of writing there has been no expression of good will from Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell, Diane Abbott, Richard Burgon, Mark Drakeford, Richard Leonard or Ian Lavery. Nothing positive from left-wing journalists like Owen Jones, Paul Mason, Kevin Maguire, Ash Sarkar or Aaron Bastani either.
It took two hours, but the Great Leader has spoken...

Needless to say, some of the comments on his post are disgusting.
