There's no election.

Corbyn failed to win against the most woeful Tory campaign that I can remember.  For Corbyn to win he has to rely on the Tories continuing to be as bad as they are currently being and that his wishy-washy nonsense on Brexit won't turn against him (and to the SNP, Libs or Greens) the remain vote, which was nearly half of those who voted.

I don't think he'll stand up well in debate.

I don't think he'll ever be PM.   But hey, you could go bust betting on sure things in politics.  (I went to sleep knowing that the UK would not be as daft as to vote to leave the EU.  Another night I went to sleep knowing that the USA would not be as daft as to vote in Trump.   I'm no pundit.)

Me neither. That's not to say Labour won't get voted in at the next election, but I'd bet that if they did, Corbyn would be sidelined and Johhn McDonnell would slide into his place.  And, that's when I'd truly be worried.

The labour party is in as much disarray as the tories.

They are, yes.  Although to hear the BBC you'd think otherwise

Corbyn is only the leader because of McDonnell and his jack boot soldiers, Momentum. You are right, if McDonell got to the top of the tree it would be a disaster. He would be invited to a chauffeured tour of 'Paris motorway tunnels' within 3 months.
