Today is the last chance to vote for Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party, a person that I believe to be one of the most honest people to have emerged in Britains frontline politics. A hard working, conscientious M.P, veteran trade unionist and anti-war activist, a figure of the real proper left.
A strong voice in opposing Tory austerity, the 2003 Iraq war, freedom for the Palestinian people, supporting my views of hope, strongly supporting the causes of the environment, peace and social justice.
constantly standing against the senseless wastes of human life that have plagued this country. Genuinely saying it how it is.
It is only £3 to sign up as a supporter, or free if you are a unison or unite member. We should not believe the media's relentless attacks on Jeremy, they are not watching out for us, Jeremy is a threat to the elite and needs all the support he can get.
On the other hand I have long believed the Labour Party to be dead, so will not be rushing to rejoin, I left in the 1980's as they were expelling friends and comrades from it's ranks, and turning into New Labour, under the treacherous direction of the likes of Tony Blair, and that spineless traitor Neil Kinnock.
If Jeremy changes the Labour Party's direction, turns it into a fighting party again, defending the poor, the weak and vulnerable that will be good. If he enables us to keep challenging the status quo, then all will not be lost, if he allows us to keep saying no to austerity , by spreading good words of solidarity and hope, that fuel our rightful anger, then possibly all will not be lost. Hopefully Jeremy will allow us to restore some faith, in our minds and hearts.
We must start building alternatives, build a strong social movement , that changes society into a force of good and change, instead of one that is cruel and divided.
Good luck Jeremy Corbyn.
