Whenever an election takes place the priority at present for Labour is to win back Remain supporters, the largest bloc of voters that have shifted away from Labour this year.
By Brian Jackson
The Labour right suffered a severe defeat due to Labour’s strong result at the General Election under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership. For the moment they are forced to keep their heads down and don’t dare to challenge Corbyn’s leadership openly. But don’t believe the right have given up the struggle to impose their support for austerity and wars. They have merely been forced to adopt more indirect tactics.
In case you missed these speeches.
A triumph for Jeremy Corbyn’s first speech as Labour leader will have underpinned his position and won over new supporters. It was a further stage in the political fightback by the incoming Labour team. Delegates left the hall buoyed by both the new style and the new substance of leadership.
