2. Corbyn is useless

He's a good campaigner I'm told by some pro-Labour folks so that's how he got where he is.
But he's always been anti-EU. The biggest problem with this is the Irish border. If you leave the EU and aren't in a customs union, that border becomes a "hard" border again, where both people and goods moving across it have to stop before being allowed to go to the other side.
For the US, it means the country we've been closest to in Europe will have far less influence within it.
And of course Corbyn is anti-NATO too.
Useless when it comes to opposing Brexit, but very useful for the Kremlin. Whether that's by accident or design doesn't matter; the practical effect is the same.
