Ever since he was elected Labour leader, and even during the General Election campaign, Jeremy Corbyn has been unable to rely on his parliamentary colleagues or his party staff. The small team around him has been shamefully undermined by many within his own party (who are strangely quiet now), and on top of that there has been the relentless and unprecedented media smear campaign (strangely now also, temporarily, on hold).
Every elite interest in the UK has tried to knock Corbyn down, but still he stands.
It’s worth remembering now that Corbyn became Labour leader at possibly the most perilous moment since the Party was formed. Essentially, what has happened is that grassroots party members have saved the Labour Party by insisting on a return to its core principles and morality, and have rekindled the hope, at least, of radical and desperately overdue changes to Britain’s economy and society.
A turning point, perhaps.
”We live in a grotesquely unequal society, and that inequality is getting worse. There is something deeply wrong about a country and a society that is prepared to tolerate the levels of desperation, destitution, and poverty that exists in modern Britain.” ~ Jeremy Corbyn ✊
