Who would have thought it. Here we are with a wonderful opportunity to elect a true "left wing" leader of the Labour Party. I have never met anyone or heard of anyone in the party who says 'I am a right winger' and everyone can make a case for their own type of Socialism but Jeremy Corbyn can not be described as anything other than a radical left winger, I am delighted with his position and campaigning for him to win.
There are many who are very much opposed to him for different reasons but I believe that there is an elephant in the room that these people are standing in. The most heard defence put forward by many protecting their argument is that New Labour and particularly Tony Blair won 3 elections, this has stood for years as justification for where we are now, the truth is that because of where we are now is because those Blair years failed us long term, many of them sold their souls for power. The explosion of support and the sheer joy of the rank and file we are witnessing now for policies of the left are testament to that. We are within touching distance of bringing the party back to where it should always been, by the side of our own class, the workers, that language I know is laughed at by those among us who declare themselves "relaxed at more and more people becoming millionaires" but they are the ones who have done long term damage to the party, it's time to organize and get back on the attack. It is my fervent hope that by the time this is all settled we will see people like Scargill, Galloway, Hatton and Canavan and many more like them back where they belong, as members of the Labour Party.
