Labour left winger Jeremy Corbyn wins place on ballot for leadership
|Jeremy Corbyn MP.|
Less than 24 hours after nominations closed and Jeremy Corbyn was included on the ballot paper for the Labour Party leadership election, the media and some pundits have already started the campaign to discredit and rubbish him. According to some polls, Corbyn has a great deal of support amongst the public and party members although not (as yet) within the Parliamentary Labour Party. Between now and 10th September, we shall witness even more hostility,smear and hysterical rhetoric from the "stop Corbyn" camp. That is the way with politics in this country today.
Over the course of the next 10 weeks, people should draw their own conclusions as to who should lead the Labour Party in spite of the negativity of media, television and "pundits". I believe that Jeremy Corbyn should be the next leader of the party as the right choice for the people of the country and for the traditional position of the Labour Party.
