Now I will start this post by stating that I’m not a Labour man – they’ve gone too far-Right in a shallow attempt to woo the electorate in recent years to have my vote (why have a party in power without a mandate for change?). But if Corbyn gets it, I might consider it!
Here in an impassioned debate at the Oxford Union in 2013, Corbyn seems to represent the actual core values of the Left – progress, tolerance, equality… y’know, all that good stuff. Makes me excited that these ideals are gaining more traction in the mainstream, and that this might mean something positive in the future!
He’s definitely my pick for the leadership. If you’re in the UK and unionised (I’m looking at you, MU Members!), make sure you head over here to register as a supporter and give yourself a chance to vote!
