Copeland political quiz question

Guess which Cumbrian politician said this of Jeremy Corbyn a few years ago:

He described Corbyn as a " “throwback to an age of class war that has now gone,”

and as the “political equivalent of Orangemen, locked in a struggle that no longer exists”,

adding that

“I have not and will not support him or his bonkers, unworkable, radically left-wing policies and that will bring nothing but ruin to the party.”

Yes, the person who posted those words on social media a few years ago is now Labour's candidate for Copeland in the current election.

He was right then.

He is wrong now.
