Labour released pictures of Mr Corbyn preparing for the biggest challenge of his leadership so far by relaxing in burgundy socks and pool side shoes, characteristic of his laid back style.
“There is now a brilliant opportunity for the Labour Party to construct a fresh and new political economy which will expose austerity for the failure it has been in the United Kingdom and Europe”. However, commentators questioned why he failed to mention the deficit, an omission that haunted Ed Miliband after his speech past year.
Jeremy Corbyn made the comments at a Labour Party conference on Tuesday.
But he praised him as an “extremely capable, bright, intelligent and honest politician” and left no doubt that he would like to see him on the Corbyn front bench.
He ended with a Keir Hardie quote summing up his work.
“The self-employed should get support and have eligibility to maternity leave and sickness”.
He said: “It is Labour that is the progressive voice for Scotland“.
Jeremy Corbyn said the party will be the progressive voice people need in Scotland.
Mr Corbyn echoed the promise of Ms Dugdale earlier in the conference to do more than listen to critics of the party but to actually make changes.
While Heller has since stated that Corbyn had permission to use the passage, Mr S suspects that McTernan may be onto something with regards to what constitutes as a “straight talking” politician.
“I don’t believe that £100 billion spent on a new generation of nuclear weapons taking up a quarter of our defence budget is the right way forward”. I don’t believe anyone has a monopoly on wisdom – we all have ideas and a vision of how things can be better.
“Well we’re not having it. Our Labour party says no”. These included housing, schooling, social care, tax credits, low wages and the bedroom tax.
“Let me be clear that we will guarantee the independence of the Bank of England”, McDonnell said, aiming to calm fears after he had called for the government to reclaim the power to set interest rates.
In a unifying message, he also promised “real debate” within the party in place of unrelenting “message discipline”. Once again the top of the Labour party is leaving the door open for individuals to decide.
He also hit out at electoral reform plans, accusing the Conservatives of trying to “strike 2 million people off the electoral register”.
“It didn’t help our national security when we went to war with Iraq in defiance of the United Nations and on a false prospectus”, he told the conference.
