Crowd Sauce

Is the Durham Miners' Gala an easy crowd for a left-wing Leader of the Labour Party?

Yes, of course it is. And that crowd duly cheered Jeremy Corbyn to the echo.

Is Wimbledon an easy crowd for a patrician, Establishment Leader of the Conservative Party?

You would have thought so. Yet that crowd has just booed David Cameron.

We know that the Durham Miners' Gala would have booed David Cameron. But would Wimbledon have booed Jeremy Corbyn?
