This is a well written and a fair appraisal on why Corbyn is the best man for the Labour leadership
As the Labour leadership election is quickly approaching, we have been bombarded more and more in a last-ditch attempt by the candidates and their teams to get our vote.
With these (arguably feeble) attempts at winning us over, has come an unprecedented amount of toxicity, personal attacks and desperation coming from the Labour Party itself and the overall
The candidate who has become the target for most of this unrelenting torrent of negativity is Jeremy Corbyn. He has been attacked by political commentators, MPs from other parties (yes… including some Tories –WHAT A SHOCKER!!!) and also by Labour members old and new, most notably of whom being Tony Blair. Blair came out with many dramatic, over-the-top and scaremongering quotes that go a little something like this:

I hadn’t heard of Anja Reschke until a few days ago. She’s a German newsreader who, in the midst of the “migrant crisis” in Calais, used her slot on prime time evening television recently to brilliantly express her anger at the “little racist nobodies” who continue to attack refugees and asylum seekers, adding that “there is a mind boggling number of people that are doing lots for refugees, who are not racist, and I think it’s their voice that should be dominant rather than a handful of simpletons who think they should stir up hatred”. If only we could look forward to a similar tirade from the likes of Sophie Raworth or Huw Edwards. I’m not holding my breath though.
Sadly, the British television coverage of Calais has been altogether more mundane and predictable. The other night I watched James Brokenshire, the Minister of State for Security and Immigration, being…

Adjacent to Borough Market and a stone’s throw from the Thames, the Market Porter is a cracking pub, an old fashioned London boozer that opens early in the morning to quench the thirst of traders on the busy fruit and vegetable market across the road. Many times I’ve stood outside enjoying a pint in one of the most atmospheric parts of London. Alas, no more. During July’s tube strike a notice in the pub’s window blamed its closure on “the criminals on the trains holding us all to ransom”. That’s the last they’ve seen of my custom.
The Market Porter wasn’t alone in cranking up the anti-union rhetoric. The swanky M restaurant in the City joined in with a pompous statement on their website declaring that they “would like to say DUCK YOU to the pig-headed unions as they irresponsibly bring London to a standstill” and offered a complimentary smoked…

This is why i am voting for Jeremy, a man with vision, ideals, integrity experience and honesty
1. Apartheid: Jeremy was a staunch opponent of the Apartheid regime and a supporter of Nelson Mandela and the ANC. He was even arrested for protesting outside the South African embassy in 1984.
2. Chile: Jeremy was an opponent of the brutal dictator Pinochet (an ally of the British government under Thatcher) and was a leading campaigner in the quest to bring him to justice. In 1998 Pinochet was arrested in London.
3. LGBT rights: As noted in Pink News, Jeremy was an early champion of LGBT rights. At a time when the Tories decried supporting LGBT rights as ‘loony left’, Jeremy voted against section 28 which sought to demonise same-sex relationships.
4. The Miners’ Strike: Jeremy went against the Labour leadership and fully supported the miners in their effort to prevent the total destruction of their industry and communities. Cabinet papers released last year prove that the NUM were…

Here is catalogue of officially recognised Tory lies used to justify their unjustifiable policies, which have have resulted in official reprimands:
David Cameron rebuked by statistics watchdog over national debt claims– PM said the government was ‘paying down Britain’s debts’ in a political broadcast, even though debt is actually rising.
“Now that his false claims have been exposed, it’s time the prime minister stopped deliberately misleading people about his economic record.”- Rachel Reeves.
Finally Exposed! The Deficit Myth! So, David Cameron When Are You Going to Apologise? David Cameron rebuked over austerity claims – David Cameron has been corrected by the Treasury’s own forecaster over claims that cuts in public spending are not reducing economic growth. The Office for Budget Responsibility told the Prime Minister that it does believe that cutting public spending will reduce economic growth in the short term.
Robert Chote, the head of the OBR, contradicted a claim Mr…
