Jeremy is sponsored by Unison, Unit and the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers. He identifies as a democratic socialist. He advocates reversing austerity cuts to public services and welfare funding made since 2010, and proposes re-nationalisation of public utilities and the railways. An anti-war and anti-nuclear campaigner since his youth, he broadly supports a foreign policy of military non-interventionism and Unilateral nuclear disarmament.
Throughout my political career, I have always stood up for a country that delivers for the many not the few. In this election, Labour is leading a movement to create an economy worthy of the 21st Century, and build a Britain that we can all be proud of.
The Conservatives’ choices in government show that they are the party of privilege and the richest. I’m proud that the Labour Party, founded for and by working people, continues to stand up for working people. When Labour wins elections, it is the people and not the powerful who win. The nurse, the teacher, the small trader, the builder, the office worker, the student, the carer win. We all win.
Britain needs a Labour government that is prepared to fight for people across this country. Our Labour government won’t be scared to take on the powerful, who hoard our country’s wealth for themselves. Britain needs a government that will invest in people in every community to build a better future for every single person.
Politics is about choices. We need a Labour government that will choose the people over the powerful – no more give-aways to the super-rich while the rest of us face less money in our pockets and cuts to our NHS, schools, police and all the services we rely upon.
