Jeremy Corbyn ‘grateful’ for ideas – but they made up less than 1/14 of his speech

It seems some Tories, and Tory supporters, are trying to say that Mr Corbyn’s speech was copied in its entirety from material written in the 1980s. That is a lie.

Vox Political is happy to help set the record straight with what follows – courtesy of the BBC.

[Mr Corbyn] said he was “grateful” to former political adviser Richard Heller for submitting wording to include.

But Mr Corbyn said the lines were 350 words out of a 5,000 word speech, which he hoped encompassed the “philosophy” he wants to pursue.

Mr Heller said he was “delighted” his ideas had been used.

  1. Frankly, I couldn’t care less when or where the remarks came from or when they were first uttered, but I am truly grateful to hear them coming from Jeremy Corbyn who is the only person I know of who is likely to act upon them.
