Mr Roberts said: “The leader’s speech focused on a number of priorities that will resonate in Bristol, above all housing, but require much deeper thinking”. I want to see a nuclear-free world.
His chances of winning a consensus in parliament looked in jeopardy after Labour elected anti-war campaigner Jeremy Corbyn as leader this month.
Corbyn will conduct talks with Kezia Dugdale, Labour’s new leader in Scotland and other Labour MSPs at Holyrood on Thursday.
“As far as I’m concerned we start from the policy we have…”
Hadleigh Roberts, vice chair of Bristol Labour Party said Mr Corbyn has shown that he is an honest and good-natured person but voters would have to decide whether that is good enough.
Speaking to The Mancunion on Wednesday she still couldn’t believe it had happened and said it was “terrifying, one of the scariest things I’ve ever done”.
After Mr Corbyn had delivered his speech, which was enthusiastically received by delegates in the conference hall, it emerged that key sections of the address had previously been rejected by former leaders dating back to Lord Kinnock. There also has to be a cutting off of the funds and the arms that Isil are using, there has to be a ceasefire amongst the other forces within Syria.
The presenter went “full Alan Partridge” by using tortuous football analogies (“Every young lad has a dream of playing in the cup final – was yesterday your FA Cup Final?”) and asked inane questions during the exchange.
But he was reproached by a member of his own leadership team, shadow defense secretary Maria Eagle, who said the comments obstructed a review of the party’s nuclear-weapons policy.
“This is obviously a central and crucial issue”.
Meanwhile, the SNP called for Mr Corbyn to use his visit to Scotland to end what they said was “chaos and confusion” within Labour over Trident.
“I do not think we should be renewing Trident”.
Corbyn also stuck to his guns on Trident, saying his position that it should be scrapped had been well known for years and would win popular support in Scotland.
“All in all it was a very optimistic speech, setting out Jeremy’s plan to change the way we do politics in Britain“.
“We’ve learned the lessons of the economic strategies of the past and the way they haven’t worked, it does mean rebalancing our economy, it does mean maintaining the 50p top rate of tax, it does mean not cutting the tax credits for the poorest people in our society”. We have a £100 billion trade deficit at the present time. “He should’ve just picked a few issues”.
