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.
