Corbyn election a defeat for Labour

The euphoria accompanying Corbyn's election as Labour leader is really stumping me.

What has happened here is that the disillusioned Left wing of what was founded as a Left-wing party has elected a far-Left leader in an election involving a minuscule percentage of the same public who ringingly endorsed Right-wing, conservative policies and principles as recently as four months ago.

This doesn't spell triumph for Labour. This spells defeat and paints Labour as an unpopular alternative, which it will remain for as long as Corbyn is in charge.
