Here’s to Jeremy Corbyn

It is such good news that the Islington North MP, Jeremy Corbyn, has announced he is running for the Labour leadership. He’s a highly principled and esteemed politician capable of dismantling the Tory rhetoric on the economy that has gone unchallenged by prominent Labour figures over the last five years, most significantly Ed Miliband. Those of us who have despaired over the Blairite uniformity of all the other contenders can now take heart. At least for the period of the campaign a cogent anti-austerity voice will be heard.
If there aren’t the needed 35 MPs prepared to nominate him as a candidate then we’ll know that the Labour Party has lost its way completely. Let’s hope that isn’t the case.

    Jeremy Corbyn has lasted the course. That can be said of very few Labour MPs. He never changes. He is utterly reliable. Yes it is wonderful news but I do wonder if this has come too late for Labour, even supposing he gets the required 35 MPs.
