Just because Jeremy Corbyn is "authentic", in the sense that he says what he believes, that still does not make him any more moral or ethical than any other politician. In fact since most of what Corbyn believes is either bollocks, bullshit or delusional we could say that Corbyn is authentically dangerous.
His record as an "anti poverty" campaigner is highly questionable: especially since most of his discredited economic policies, including state control over much larger parts of the economy, are more likely to create wider poverty than to reduce it. He is an ex-union organizer and a campaigner: he is certainly not an economist and his membership of "The Peoples Assembly Against Austerity" is almost hilarious in its po-faced self regard.
Meanwhile, if we are to judge a man by his friends the Corbyn keeps extremely questionable company.
Corbyn repeatedly condemns the British Army, while speaking up for the murderers of the IRA. Corbyn has actively supported the disastrous Venezuelan left wing government. He has said he regards Hamas and Hizbollah as "friends"- even when they attack Israeli civilians. This SoB has even repeatedly supported Putin: condemning the activists of the Maidan as American inspired stooges and repeating the libelious comment that NATO is to blame for the warmongering of the thieves, liars and murderers in the Kremlin.
So Jeremy Corbyn is kind to animals- so what? Hitler was a vegetarian.
So frankly whatever good points there may be in this humourless, self righteous, bore they are off-set more than a little by his vocal support for some utter bastards.
If Corbyn is the answer, then Labour is authentically dead.
