Challenged by Kendall on whether any circumstance might change his view on this, Corbyn responded: “Any?” The Tories want to wipe us out, and the minute the new leader is elected they are going to throw everything at us.
The broadcaster said that Burnham scored positively when he admitted that the Labour party had drifted away from voters and warned that the party “needed to face up to this”.
Cameron needs a support from a large number of Labour MPs to stand a realistic chance of winning the vote as up to 20 Conservatives may vote against, but many may feel pressured into voting with their new leader so as not to undermine him at such an early stage.
But Mr Corbyn, a leading opponent to the 2003 Iraq war who wants to apologise over the conflict if elected leader of Britain’s main opposition party on September 12, is deeply opposed to the move.
Mr Cameron stressed that military action against IS was part of the “comprehensive program” he envisages to tackle the migrant crisis that has seen thousands of people, including many Syrians, flock to Europe.
“Labour has a problem here, but it’s a typical post-election defeat situation”.
“Rural supporters have asked us to do something similar for the countryside so we are responding to that request and hope to be able to develop a political channel with them and for them to express their concerns and ideas”. If Corbyn wins, the Labour Party will be turned upside down – but unless he can convince the rest of Britain to take a hard left turn, the biggest winners could well be Labour’s opponents.
Cameron has said he will campaign for Britain to remain in the union, as long as the reforms are agreed upon. The fallen Labour chief is expected to announce his intention to campaign on environmental and inequality issues as a backbench MP in the coming days.
Mr Corbyn said that Britain should be “adult and grown-up” about cannabis and decriminalise its use for medical purposes, though he said he would not advocate decriminalisation for recreational use “at this stage”.
Both Ms Cooper and Ms Kendall suggested that it should be subjected to the usual trials imposed on any substance thought to offer medical benefits.
“I find that he has very good sympathy and support for the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian struggle and he is frankly against the occupation, against the racist policy of Israel, against settlements”, said Mr Hamad.
On Cooper, the Independent said that although she seems to have emerged as the most credible alternative to Corbyn, she “does not have a natural constituency either on the right or left of the party”. “We should have stuck with the United Nations and given far more support to the UN”. Cooper has quietly got on with getting her message across.
“There is a lot of people still to vote and this race is still very much alive”, he said.
