160802 Corbyn Mersey Bunker 5
This Writer was very happy with Mr Corbyn’s comment that he uses the social media as a way of bypassing the “Murdoch monopoly” on newspapers and television.

He said stories about the Labour Party in a certain newspaper (he didn’t need to name it) had been analysed and 84 per cent were negative. Clearly the public is being served poorly by the press. The propaganda must be fought. And the best place to fight it is online.

To this end – would you like to hear what Mr Corbyn had to say?

Here he is:

Jeremy Corbyn has described the challenge to his leadership of the Labour party as a “massive opportunity to reach out to people all across the country”, speaking to a crowd of about 5,000 people at a campaign rally in Liverpool.

Police had to close roads surrounding St George’s Plateau in the centre of the city when the event, which was organised with only two days notice, attracted large crowds. Carrying banners reading “Scousers for Corbyn” and “We chose Jez”, the Labour leader’s supporters clambered on statues and railings to catch a glimpse of him as he spoke.

“A year ago, I’m sad to say, our party abstained on the welfare reform bill,” said Corbyn. “No more are we going to go down that road, no more is that going to be the politics of our party. Our party wants a society that works for all, that reduces inequality, that provides opportunity and hope for the next generation. That is what we’re about.”
