Jeremy Corbyn forcing humbled George Osborne into a £4.4-billion tax credit cuts U-turn is a famous victory for the beleaguered Left-winger leader’s robust opposition.

The triumph isn’t just Corbyn’s, of course.

But Corbyn in particular may take huge satisfaction in seeing off a raid that would’ve robbed 3 million families of an average £1,300 a year.

Labour didn’t abstain on cuts, as it did disastrously last summer in a piece of political fence sitting which catapulted Corbyn to the leadership. It fought them tooth and claw.

Whatever else Corbyn achieves in politics, he’s played a major part in saving the livelihoods of families and lower paid workers.

Behind Osborne’s bluster is a humiliated Chancellor performing more U-turns and swerves than a contortionist.
