For me, Corbyn's biggest appeal is his reticence to power. It could be a front, but if it is it's part of the slowest-burn game ever seen in British politics. Power attracts a certain breed of person. They're usually people with very few skills but the one which they've absolutely mastered: ascending to positions of power. They are not fully-rounded, empathetic human beings. I'm sure this is why the Ancient Greeks initially had a sort of jury duty parliamentary system. The notion of having a leader who, like Claudius or Eddie Murphy in Trading Places, was placed into power rather than clawing and battling his way there, is a pretty novel one.
