Corbyn's old rival Smith now Labour shadow for Northern Ireland

Corbyn's old rival Smith now Labour shadow for Northern Ireland

He has articulated an alternative to neo-liberal economics, that has been the only game in town for so long.

Corbyn was speaking in Parliament for the first time since the Labour Party's 30-seat gain in the June 8 General Election - and he made light of May's troubles as Prime Minister as she bids to agree a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party to prop up her Conservative administration.

These younger voters now form a fundamental backbone of our Party. Yet, in the words of Andy Burnham, he has been treated appallingly by the parliamentary Labour Party...

They refused to mention Jeremy Corbyn at all.

"A boss should not be harassing employees or interfering with their right to vote for who they wish - it's Dickensian, workhouse nonsense", said Warren Kenny, GMB London Secretary.

Establishment politicians have failed to deliver for the ordinary voter.

Having experienced increasingly negative ratings since Theresa May took office last summer, Jeremy Corbyn sank to a low of -42 in late April, just after the election was called.

Iraqi forces say started storming Islamic State-held Mosul Old City
Machinegun fire crackled and plumes of smoke from missiles rose above the Old City. US forces have been based since a year ago at Tanf.

NEW YouGov research shows Jeremy Corbyn has his highest favourability score to date, while Theresa May's are approximately where the Labour leader's were in late 2016. In contrast, the UK Labour Party was trailing by about 25 points.

This is further proof that Mr Corbyn could become prime minister if there is a fresh election, something that became clear on Friday when it emerged that Labour had won 40% of the vote, and was within striking distance of the Tories.

If I could see that Labour would do very well in a general election, why has it come as a total surprise to those professional commentators and pundits?

Politics is indeed a dirty business, as at the start of her premiership Theresa May was bursting with statesman-like authority and confidence but, less than a year down the line, has had the rug pulled from beneath her feet. They are notable by their absence on our screens. 57% of 18 and 19 year-olds voted last week, while 84% of 70+ voted.

The survey also showed the closing of the class gap; professionals were nearly as likely to vote for Labour as they were the Conservatives. In short, the Conservatives are between a rock and a hard Brexit, but reeling from such a catastrophic fall from grace in the Election they are likely to hunker down and ride things out.... Our broadcasting media need to reflect this positive Corbyn effect or they will forever be behind the curve. That was doubly true for Jewish voters who believed there has been a rise in cases of anti-Semitic statements by party members since Corbyn's election as leader almost two years ago.

"My rules of leadership haven't changed: if you fail you carry the can".

"This was a remarkable result achieved because we stayed united and worked as a team and I have no doubt together we can win the next general election, whenever that may be".
