The election of Jeremy Corbyn as the new leader of the British Labour Party is a reminder that life is rich with paradox.The Labour Party's defeat in May's general election brought about the resignation of its leader, Ed Miliband, a courteous and intelligent figure who, having abandoned the middle ground once controlled by former Prime Minister Tony Blair, had failed to convince even his own party that he could run the country.Such indecisiveness was not a problem for Corbyn, whose principal distinction in more than three decades in parliament has been voting against his own party more than 500 times on the grounds that its proposals were not socialist enough.If a leader like the late Hugo Chavez, the architect of Venezuela's "socialist revolution," emerges, Corbyn would probably be on the next plane to meet him.Despite his radical views, Corbyn won the battle to lead Labour – and hence Britain's parliamentary opposition, with nearly 60 percent of the vote. Corbyn's election underscores how many Britons are refusing to accept reality.
