Today is October 12th, exactly one month after Jeremy Corbyn was announced as the new leader of the Labour party. It’s been a series of ups and downs, so here are some of my personal high – and low – lights.
Jeremy Corbyn has been Labour leader for just over 24 hours, and guess what? He’s being criticised already.
Today, I became a paid member of the Labour Party. Why?
I have one answer: Jeremy Corbyn.
I have supported Labour for a really long time. I carried Ed Miliband’s manifesto pledges in my purse for months. I still have it now. But as much as I like Ed, his policies were, at best, vague. I think he’s a great guy and I have a lot of respect for him, but I never felt completely dedicated to his cause.
